are you under the influences of group policy or other domain restrictions?

Is it even a XP native driver?

When you say same CD, are you referring to a SOE (standard operating environment CD) that was made for your purposes?

No, I means all those computers were installed from same CD. First time, I installed for 1 computer and made ghost file, deployed to some computers and all of them can't detect USB device, I reinstalled 1 computer with that CD and it is working well. I dont wan't to reinstall OS for those computer because they have some additional software.

are they all up to the current Service pack and patch levels?
Maybe the drivers need SP1 or SP2?

Did you customize that install in any way?
Sounds like it has had drivers removed or disabled.

You could try SFC /scannow to check all the windows files, but I don't think it will change any registry settings..
