Computer PC, Widows XP Pro SP3, 6 USB, 4 used by Scanner HP,MS Mouse,Web Camera and RCA cable modem. 2 free USB used by SanDisk Cruser and SanDisk MP4 sansa 260. Everything worked OK. After reinstalling Windows from scratch, the 4 permanent USB Hard pieces work OK but when I insert one of the SunDisk the screen goes black and the computer reboots. After reboot I can see that it was a hardware error, take out the SunDisk and Windows Goes on

Make sure you are logged in as an administrator. I'd also try the thumb drive in a different computer just to make sure the problem isn't with the thumb drive itself. The drive could also be unformatted, or formatted with a filesystem for a different platform that can't be read by XP.
try to disconnect all usb devices and install it again to another port also try to install it on another PC if it workson another PC and yours not then try to remove ur O/S and install a good one like windows Xp SP2
Connect the HP camera to your windows pc using the usb cable provided. Open My Computer to ensure that the camera is being properly enumerated (given a hard disk letter). make note of the drive letter assigned.
If you have more than one USB port, insert your cruzer micro 2.0 stick into another USB port. Look in my computer again to determine what drive letter was assigned to the flash stick. Open a windows explorer window for each of the locations. One for the camera, the other for the flash stick. Its likely that the picture files are in a subfolder of a folder called DCIM.
Once you locate the files you want to transfer, you can highlight them using the mouse (click/drag a box around the files you want) and drag them to the other open window (flash stick folder)
If you don't have another available USB slot on the compter, you'll need to copy the files from the camera to a temporary location on your computer and then move them to the flash drive. In this case, make a new folder on the desktop and name it temporaryfiles. open that folder. open the drive letter assigned to the camera and copy whatever files you want from the camera to 'temporaryfiles'...
Then power off the camera and remove the usb cord from the computer. attach the flash disk to the newly free'd up usb port and open a windows explorer window to it. drag whatever files you want from 'temporaryfiles' folder into the folder for the flash stick.
Should show up in "My Computer" as a removable drive with letter designator. Then it is simply a matter of drag and drop to copy files using the mouse. If XP doesn't recognize the drive, put it in another USB port, and or try it on another computer. If it doesn't show up then, take it back to the store.
I have the same issue. I have found a temporary solution though. I have a Sandisk 4GB Cruzer and an HP Laserjet 1022N connected VIA USB. When I uninstall the USB Printing support driver from Device Manager then plug in the Cruzer it recognizes it right away. Not quite sure why this would happen though
When you say 'crash' does this mean the system reboots, freezes up entirely, or blue screens?
I've seen similar issues when the USB 2.0 host controller isn't enabled in the System (BIOS) setup. Many devices, such as USB mice and MP3 players and even flash drives, will show up and some will function, but if the USB is required to act as a host controller, devices such as external hard drives and (sometimes) flash drives will either not show up at all on the computer or will crash it.
I'd suggest first looking in the BIOS setup to make sure that both the USB host controller and USB legacy support are enabled.
