Question about Dell Latitude CP (0001849d-38380-968-p06e) LS-120 (SuperDisk) Drive
Your boot record is corrupted. You'll want to boot to the Windows 2000 Recovery Console.
Try running the chkdsk /r command first. It may take about 30+mins to finish. If that doesn't get it, then you'll want to try fixing the boot record:
command-> FIXBOOT loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); fixboot drive name: Use this command (where drive name is the drive letter where the boot sector will be written) to write the new Windows boot sector code on the boot partition. This command fixes problems where the Windows boot sector is corrupted. The Emergency Repair process also fixes the boot sector. This command overrides the default of writing to the system boot partition.
command-> FIXMBR loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); fixmbr device name Use this command (where device name is an optional device name that specifies the device that needs a new MBR) to repair the master boot record (MBR) of the system partition. This command is used in scenarios where a virus has damaged the MBR and Windows cannot start.
WARNING: This command has the potential to damage your partition tables if a virus is present or a hardware problem exists. This command may lead to inaccessible partitions. Microsoft suggests running antivirus software before using this command.
The name can be obtained from the output of the map command. If this is left blank, the boot device's MBR is fixed, for example:
fixmbr \device\harddisk2 If Fixmbr detects an invalid or non-standard partition table signature, it prompts you for permission before rewriting the MBR.

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
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 to a computer and its parts
if you need more help with this or if i have missed the problem post a reply
hope it helps
