My Windows XP has two accounts, one of them is a power user account which is the one i use regularly. A few days ago i tryed to connect a new flash card reader/writer but Windows says i don't have enough rights to do that.
It works fine if i connect that hardware from the administrator account.
Is there a way i can give the right to the power user account to add new usb devices?

Make sure the limited account is not also logged at the same time as your account. If it is, log off the limited one so only yours is running, then see if the device can be connected.

My account is the limited one. I tryed plugging it with the limited account logged only (which i think i did the first time i plugged it) but same thing happens.
