XP (SP2) not recognising Maxell USB Flash Drive 2.0

Hi,

Bought the above 2GB flash drive yesterday, however XP brings up the New Hardware Wizard when I connect. It searches for the drivers but brings up an error message saying unable to install.
It shows up in device manager as USB Disk 2.0 but not in My Computer. In driver properties in device manager it states:

This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.

However when I try and reinstall the drivers it brings up the Hardware Wizard and the cycle begins all over again.

I realise this is more of an XP related issue however if you have any advice on how I can get the flash drive recognised, I'd be grateful.

Many thanks

Patrick

Patrik it seem like USB conflicts. As XP has inbuilt USB drivers for mass storage and it should recognize your flash memo without creating problem. I think your USB driver might be currepted due installation of other software or drivers.

1). Uninstall your USB driver through device manager. and after re-boot install the drive for USB from your XP CD. this will fix your problem.

2). If step one did not fix then try to install driver from your flash memo if you have any CD from your flash memo or you can try your flash in other computer and find out if there is any driver preloaded in your flash.

Thanks

How do i use a maxell usb 360 2.0 flash drive


Before you enter a drive in the computer, install the appropriate software and drivers, so the computer does recognise the drive. The software came with the drive, or a paper with a link where you can download the software.

Bought a maxell 8gb usb flash drive. When I try to use it it comes up with message "insert disk into drive j". Any suggestions?


By trying to use it I take that to mean you go to My Computer and select the drive you believe it to be.

Try going to My Computer with the flash drive unplugged and then plug it in while watching My Computer for a new drive letter to appear. That will be the one to use.

If you select the wrong one you will get the message you are experiencing.

Hi abdul_saleem,

If you are using Windows 98 (SE) it isn't supported. Otherwise try the drive in other USB ports on the back of your computer. Install the latest Service Pack for your OS. Verify that the drive is not defective by trying it in a different computer.

Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.
