Just wondering if someone could shed some light on this little prob.
500GB SATA HD
120GB IDE HD
8GB IDE HD
Windows XP SP2
2 USB ports at rear currently connected to printer and mouse
2 USB ports at front not connected because I always get an 'unrecognised' error. (Besides, it is too inconvenient to use the front because of the way I have set up my equipment).
Have used one of the floppy drive bays to install a card reader which also has 1 USB port (this port also works).
Now, I recently formatted the pc and did a complete new install.
Ever since though, whenever I connect either my Sandisk Cruzer USB drive or the Verbatim USB drive I have, if it doesn't ask for a driver, nothing happens. Usually a screen appears prompting me what I want to do...view files, play using... etc etc.
The drive is not even visible in explorer...irrespective of which of the working usb ports I connect to.
Other times it asks for a driver, and I allow it to search and install, when it finally finds it to and begins the install, half way through the transferring of files it fails and provides an error saying your device cannot be used.
I don't think it's a USB port issue because my mouse works as does my printer.
I don't think it's a drive issue as both USB drives work on other computers.
I am not too sure what it could be to be honest, so any help that rectifies this issue would be appreciated.
One last thing, the logitechG5 mouse I have works fine but the software that came with it cannot be installed for some reason.
For those who don't know, it's just s/w that allows you to configure the button settings for this device.
The mouse works as it is, but not to what I expect for gaming sessions.
Thank you in advance.
