I've recently acquired a spare pc running xp pro. It's got 2 usb ports, and if i plug any usb device into these, the computer freezes entirely, every time, instantly.
We really need to be able to use usb pen drives with the machine, and we've found that only one particular pen drive can be used without a freeze, if it is inserted prior to boot-up. This doesn't work with any other usb device, and its a bit of pain having to turn the machine off just to transfer a couple of files across.
I can't get the exact spec of the pc at the moment (holidays), all i know is it's windows xp pro, and running on an intel 533mhz.
I just wondered if you guys have seen this problem before, and know of some kind of fix.
Any help appreciated,
