Hi, I have recently updated to SP3 and now my USB is only detecting the U3 partition on my Kingston DataTraveler 2 GB Memory stick, it worked fine before...

I have a second copy of Win XP SP3 on the same system and that copy is detecting both the U3 partition and the actual memory partition....so it does not appear to be a hardware problam.
If I pop the memory stick in and out I'll get the BSOD....

Another problem I have that might be related to this issue. Last week I had to uninstall NOD32 after my system would freeze after log-in and loading NOD32. I uninstalled it....and some how suspect that these two issues are related....

My NVIDIA FX5200 died on me last week, the screen started flickering on and off, until I uninstalled the NVIDIA drivers. I have since ordred a new card and I am currently using the dead card with the windows VGAsave driver.

Rolling back to SP2 in not an option, because I upgraded from XP home SP2 to XP Pro SP3.
