You can either try and force install the XP driver of this device, or you can manually set the device up as an unknown gaming device.

    If the website for the device doesn't exist, you may have to google the model of your device. As for installing it as an unknown device. Warning: this process will test your patience for connecting hardware with Vista. If you frustrate easily, you may not want to do this:

    Connect the device
    Click on Strart > Control Panel > (choose Classic View on the left) Add Hardware
    When the Add Hardware Wizard starts, choose "Manually select a device I choose..." click Next
    From this list choose "Sound Video and Game Controllers
    Look for your device, if not choose one close to your pad.
    You may get a "Warning this driver was not made for this device" message. Install anyway.
    Good luck.

the driver for your USB webcam is missing after installing Vista.
Right click "Computer", open Properties, open Device Manager on the left, find if there is an alert saying unknown device or sth, if there is the unknown, update your webcam driver.

Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install


When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.

Missing USB controller driver


When posting driver issues, you need to specify what kind of equip you are dealing with, not just the issue. Most liekly you need to go to the manufacturs website of your motherboard or laptop and find vista drivers for it.

"USB Device Not Recognized" - any usb device


1-Make sure you are using XP SP2. You probably are but just in case....

2-Unplug all USB devices

3-Uninstall any software for the devices you just unplugged

4-Reboot into safe mode and open the device manager. Make sure to choose the show hidden devices option

Note: Follow the order of removal exactly and this MUST be done in safe mode only!

5-Remove any entries for USB peripherals like scanners and printers

6-Remove any entries for HID devices or Combp USB devices

7-Remove all USB root hub entries

8-Remove all USB host controller entries

9-Reboot to normal mode, let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive.

If this didn't work then repeat steps 1-8.
Staying in safe mode, right click in the device manager and scan for hardware changes. Let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive again.

Also when doing any of this try and get a hold of another thumb drive and try it instead of yours. Your thumb drive could be the source of the trouble. We had similar issues we tracked down to a bad batch of Memorex thumb drives.
