I received no response from you, so I contacted another organization. They have communicated with me letting me know they are working the problem. I have no inclination to either ask for your assistance or refer you to others in the future.

Microsoft Knowledge Base
Article 971029
describes an update to Autorun that restricts AutoPlay
functionality to CD and DVD media. This update is intended to stop AutoPlay
functionality from working on USB drives, external hard drives, or network
shares. This update is available for supported editions of Windows XP, Windows
Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.

Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.

The preceding describes what has likely happened to your USB ports due to Windows update disabling the autorun feature for USB thumbdrives. The thumbdrive may no longer present its data properly unless you manually invoke the autorun in its root.

Sometime cannot detect my thumbdrive... i already restart my PC for many time..


At this point, it could be one of several things. Is this only happening with one thumb drive or multiple drives? If only one thumb drive have you attempted using it with another computer?

If multiple drives are giving the same problem, have you tried other peripherals in the same USB port?

I ask because it sounds like some sort of short. That being the case, tracing the short to whether it is in the USB port itself or with the thumb drive is important for further troubleshooting.

For now, what I would suggest is testing other USB peripherals in the same port, or trying that thumb drive in another computer. If it is the drive, I would suggest replacing it as a shorted drive could potentially damage the USB port on your motherboard. If it is the port itself, I would suggest calling the manufacturer of your motherboard.

In either case, backing up the thumb drive's data would be in your best interests.

- XP computer does not recognize sony mavica cd 500 camera when plugged into USB port - thumbdrive is recognized - camera and cable work on another computer


Reload the driver and software on the PC. Since the camera works on another PC and the thumb drive is seen in the XP PC, the problem must be with the driver in the XP PC. If this camera has NEVER worked with the XP PC, make sure it is compatible with that operating system.

"Lost" all USB ports on win xp laptop after plugging ipod shuffle


go into the system restore and choose a date when the usb ports were working then let it go thru its process of restoring. It will restart and then test the usb ports then, if you still can't get them to work then that means the motherboard is bad.

Usb problem


hi pbracco252, on top of the specifics will be the reason. there is a possibility that the usb hub in your computer cannot produce enough power for the thumbdrive to run or a possible IRQ resource conflict with a component in your computer and the drive. to better investigate on the issue, best if you provide the brand and models of both devices.

PLEOMAX 5GB Thumbdrive


Do you see a message on your system tray when it is plugged in? If you don't see any message, it means that the drive is not being detected. You can't retrieve any data or files on the thumb drive if it is not detected. Things you can try to isolate the problem:

1. Try a different USB port on your computer. Check if your thumb drive will be detected.

2. Try a different USB device like mouse on your USB port. If it is detected, it means that the problem is the thumb drive. If not, it means that the USB port is not working or is disabled.

3. Try the thumb drive on a different computer.

Hope this helps. ;-)

Rescue data on optima attache 4G thumb drive?


Leave the thumbdrive plugged in to the computer and reboot.

Right click on my computer, click Manage, click on disk management, locate your thumb drive, right click and choose assign (or change) a drive letter. If it already has a drive letter, give it a different one as it’s already in use

Is this thumb drive USB specific? Some of the newer ones require a 2.0 USB port. It's possible you're plugging it into a 1.0 port.

open my computer and hit the f5 key on your keyboard for a refresh.. might not have posted.


try one or more of these
