I've seen systems that default to booting from the latest installed drive. I suspect that your BIOS has this set. Go into the setup and check. If it has this set, set it to the drive you want to boot to. This will probably keep happening if you like to boot the system without the drive connected unless their is a BIOS update.

    From what I've been able to find, there seems to be a problem with USB devices in general (keyboards, printers, flash drives) preventing systems from booting. Some thing that has supposedly worked:

    Browse the BIOS for legacy support.... disable it, turn it off then save your changes - reboot.

You will have to be the computer administrator to change any values on any hard drive

click start control panel user accounts you should see a box with the administrator and the guest account if you have made one click on the administrator this may vary depending on which operating system you have

click start click to open on my computer you should see your hard drive usually C: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the security tab option then advanced make sure you have full control in windows 7

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

This is an very new model of addon card for which there is no driver in the Express Gate - which is just a stripped down Slackware Linux operating system - so the system ignores it and everything plugged into it. Since adding a Linux driver (which doesn't even exist at this moment according to the manufacturer) to an embedded OS like that is extremely difficult you should just connect your keyboard and mouse in another onboard USB socket - if necessary use a $5 hub which you can buy at Walmart.

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts also

Ive plugged in my usb stick now how do i get access to its content


Click on the "Start" button in the bottom left of the screen. Then select "Computer" or "My Computer". This will bring up a list of all of the drives in your computer (if your flash drive is operating correctly and being read then it will be considered a drive). Find the drive that corresponds to your flash drive. Once you find it, you should be able to double-click on it to open it, or you can right click it and select "open", "explore", or "expand".
Typically the drive that holds your operating system is C: and the cd/dvd rom drive is D: and all new drives (your flash drive) are labeled E: F: G: and so forth.

System freeze


The issue was resolved by uninstalling SP3. I uninstalled SP3 and the USB PCI card and rebooted. When SP2 reinstalled the device it installed the corect driver (5.1.2600.2180) and everything is now functional. Have no idea why the correct driver was not in XP SP3.

Try turning off Enhanced USB support, from the Device Manager in Windows; this will allow it to be read, a little slower though.

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?


1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
