Hi Experts


I have a USB flash drive which is picked up on one machine running Win 2k instantly, but when I try on another same spec machine running 2k, absolutely nothing.

I have tried different usb ports on the front, rebooted, but still not picking up, something in registry, device manager? Please advise accordingly


Cheers

I recommend to delete all USB stuff from Device Manager (make sure to display disabled/inactive devices too), reboot, and see what is happening.

Hi Qlemo

Will do this, its a work PC, and I return to Work Wednesday. There is no danger at all  in deleting all USB stuff?, they will be regenerated upon rebbot or insertion of USB device?

Thanks

Sure. The drivers are there, you have not deleted them, as long as you do not uninstall drivers. Anyway, special drivers are needed for special purposes only (USB printer control with full options, for example). Anything else regarding USB is part of OS drives.
