I'm not able to access my CDRW drive any longer after I removed my CDRW and WebCam from the USB ports on my computer.

I've tried reloaded the CDRW software to no avail. Device Manager says that the USB root hub is there but that there is a problem:

NTKERN.VXD device loader(s) could not load the device driver (Code 2.)

It gives an option to update the device driver (which I have by disc and by going to MSN's site as well.

The bottom portion of the message gives two options:

Disable in this hardware profile


Exists in all hardware profiles. (This is the option that is currently checked)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm running Windows 98 Second Edition

By "Removing" the devices mentioned:

Do you mean that you "Disconnected" the USB cable from PC USB Port?

If so: Did you get a warning message stating:
~It is not safe to do?~

With the devices disconnected. . . .restart computer . . . .

Go into Device Mananger & EXPAND USB Controllers & see if USB Hub is available & look at each port

Then with Device manager open . . .plug 1 of the devices in & see if Device Manager recognizes it. . .

ANY YELLOW SIGNS if it does?

If it sees & NO Yellow signs: Double click & look at Power

Does these devices have their own Power? Are they connected? Power Cord & Power Insert Cable?

Also is HUB have external power? Is the Power Supply pluged in? Some HUBs have an "Internal & External" Switch . . .Needs to be External. . . .

Thats enough for now. . . Post back & we may be able to generate a plan . . .instead of just hopping around . .

I am just trying to understand what you did. . .& where we stand

How long have you had these devices installed?
Or are you in the process of installing?
How long has HUB been installed
Do you have other USB devices?
Is this a new PC that you are installing these devices from old PC

OOPs. . .I see your Operating System is Win 98 (SE)???
Do you have other USB devices?
