Hello i´m having problems with my USB driver. I use win XP and when i connect a device driver ( pen driver, mp3 or cam ) in my usb it´s detect but a letter referent to this unit don´t appear to me in explorer.
Someone here have already had this problem ?
How u have fixed it ??
Never had this problem but I think I know why its happening
Insert the Pen Driver, after it detects go to Disk Management(Right click on my computer>>Manage>>Disk Mangement) and see if a "letter" is assigned to it. If so try to open it directly by doing following
Click start>run> type e: and hit enter (assuming e is assigned by xp)
If this works let me know, i'll tell u the solution to fix it.
Did it get a drive letter when you first installed it? And did windows pick up the drivers automatically or did you install from a disk? And if you installed from disk, do you still have the disk or a copy of the .iso or whatever your preference in backup is?
As you said you can open your cam/pen drive using the direct link, I think may be a 3rd party software is causing the problem, it could be a image viewer software which searches for images etc. Do you have any software like that? Since when u started gretting this problem, do you remember if u installed any software just before that ?
You may wish to try one method Ive found to be the easiest and often enough the answer to the problem. Make sure you have any and all software needed to re-install the devices and that they are in working order first, keep them handy. Plug in the device, then find all instances of them inside device manage (so like inside the cameras and scanners area, etc.) remove them by hitting delete or uninstalling them via the - sign. Also do the same for any "Unknown Device" inside the USB area. Unplug the device and wait 10sec then plug back in and re-install. This often fixes the problem, if not I would say you have something conflicting with the program needed to recognize the device.
one patch is available for flash memory, u download that patch and install...
Just reinstall the drivers for your USB hub...
As windows has all drivers for evices preinstalled.. windows may have lost them..
What type of chipset has your mobo? Is it VIA? if it is try applying the Via patch.
Maybe you have accidentally selected to hide it?
