Hi, just recently i ran my windows xp disk to repair/fix some re-occuring problems with windows.exe encountering a problem on boot-up, it seems to have done the trick, but after the repair it rebooted and my mouse (usb) stopped working i found the drivers on the internet (with just my keyboard which took forever) installed and my mouse works fine again but now when i insert my USB stick mp3 player it lights up but when it used to show another device (removable storage) in "my computer" it doesnt anymore and i cant get into the file which contains the music so im stuck with the songs i put on when it worked correctly,

Hope you guys can help me and i've tried to explain it as well as possible and i can remember.

cheers,

Marc White

This is a long shot but it won't hurt anything. Go into Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager button and expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers listing. Right-click on each device and select Uninstall. They will all disappear. Back out of all the popups and restart. This will cause the OS to reinstall all the USB drivers. Hopefully this will cure the problem. Keep you fingers crossed.
