Re: cannot get my USB memory stick to install on XP
I have a sandisk cruzer, titanium 512mb. Model: SDCZ3 512 I have used this to store massive amounts of data that I frequently need to access. Recently, when I plugged the device into my computer's USB, I received the following message: "USB Device Not Recognized" After double clicking on this message, I got the USB Root Hub. The last item on the tree stated: "Unknown Device." I double-clicked on the unknown device, and in the Device Status box, received the following message: "No Drivers installed for this device.If you are having problems with this device, click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter." I attempted to troubleshoot, but the device remains unrecognized. How can I access the data I have stored on this device? I have even tried to install the drivers automatically, but it would not istall succesfully.

Re: cannot get my USB memory stick to install on XP
Your motherboard chipset drivers will give you the proper drivers for the usb and management. it will auto install any needed drivers if it can recognize the stick. you will have no special drivers needed

The easiest way is to use an USB memory stick, plug this USB memory stick into the XP computer and copy the files from the XP computer to the USB memory stick, then remove the USB memory stick and plug it into the Windows 7 computer and copy the files from the USB memory stick to the Windows 7 computer.
Below is how to transfer your photos incomputer to a memory stick in Windows XP operating system
1.Insert the memory stick into a compatiblememory stick reader. Plug the memory stick reader, with the memory stickinserted into it, into the computer's USB port.
2.After a moment, a screen thatsays "Removable Disk" will pop up and prompt you to take an action.Click on "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer." Thiswill open the folders on the memory stick. Select and open the folder whereyour photos are stored.
3.With the memory stick folderand the photo folder open simultaneously, use the mouse to click-and-drag thephotos to the memory stick folder.
4.Close all folders and removethe memory stick reader from the USB port.
5.To ensure that your photos havebeen transferred, plug the memory stick back into the USB port. When the"Removable Disk" screen pops up, select "Open folder to viewfiles using Windows Explorer." Once you see the photos on the memory stickfolder, you can close the folder and remove the memory stick reader from theUSB port.
As you have mentioned that you are not able to access the hidden files on the memory stick. I wpuld like you to check if the hidden files are being hidden in the OS settings or not.
In order to check that when you will open the folder of memory stick, go to folder options and in the folder options make sure that the Hidden files options is not checked.
If it is checked please uncheck it refresh the windows explorer and the files will be displayed
You cannot just move your programs over, you need to install your programs using the various program installation CDs, because the installation process copies DLL files as well as putting data onto the registery file.
You can copy your data files from your HP PC to a USB memory stick and then plug this USB memory stick into the Dell's USB port and copy the data files to the various folders on the Dell PC.
Plug your memory stick into the USB slot on the computer. If this is the first time that particular memory stick is being placed into the machine, it will take a few seconds to find the drivers and install it.
Once this is completed, you want to open "My Computer" and look for the Removable Device that will normally have a drive letter of (F:) for example. When you have this window open, open another window, this time with the location of the information you want save on your memory. Once this is found you can transfer them by right clicking on each of the files you want sent to the memory stick and click "send to .....and send it to the removable device. If you want to transfer files in bulk, you can simply drag the files you want into the window you already have open with the removable disk. Practice it and it will become like second nature to you.
Hope this helped...
Boot up your Toshiba laptop
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link :- http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download
There may be one or more driver files for each device, depending upon what device is installed on your IBM, download them all because only one will work with your device but you won't know which one until you install it and it works.
Then copy the drivers from the Toshiba to a USB memory stick, then remove the memory stick and boot up the IBM R52 and insert the USB memory stick into the R52's USB port. Click on the USB memory device and double click on each of the device drivers. Each driver file will then expand and copy the driver files onto the C drive under a folder called Drivers. Open this folder to view the various drivers and run the Setup file for each driver.
