Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop
Running XP Home - SP2 on Dell 4550. SP2 update was done some time ago. Lately computer is not recognizing USB devices. Ipod, digital cameras, external hard drives.(USB Device has malfunctioned) I've tried plugging into alternate USBs, (No hubs) to no avail. Surprisingly there has been no problem with USB mouse or keyboard.
One suggestion that I tried was a complete shut down and removal from power for a few hours, but it did not have any effect. Please help. Thanks

XP seems limited in the USB devices it can handle at any one time. If they are removed without using the remove USB devices option, they stay ghosted. Follow those instrucktion, which are not as hard as they look, and remove all the greyed devices in USB Drives, I suggest not removing anything from Non-Pug and Play, and the system devices categories. Another option is to download this program, USBDeview and it will show you the ghosted USB devices.
Nice little program! Good luck!
