Hi phun2008

Did your question get answered? (I'm not sure what "no thanks" was in response to.)

Your flash drives should work fine w/ Windows XP. They should be detected by the operating system as mass storage devices - plug-n-play - w/ no need for drivers installtion, etc.

You may, however, experience detection issues w/ them on systems w/ older USB hardware. If the flash drives are USB 2.0 drives, they will not be detected on systems running USB 1.1 or earlier - regardless of the OS (operating system) installed.

On the other hand, if they are USB 1.1 flash drives, they should be detected fine on both older and newer USB ports as USB 2.0 is "backward compatible".


I hope this helps.

    Actually, that wasn't entirely correct (regarding USB 2.0 devices on a USB 1.1 interface).



    In most cases, your USB 2.0 device will be detected fine on a USB 1.1 port. You'll just be notified that the device could run faster on a high speed USB port rather than the one it's been detected on.



    It is on the USB 1.0 ports that you will definetly encounter problems when trying to connect USB 2.0 devices.



    My apologies for any confusion.

How to Recover Windows XP Password with Password Reset Disk?


Windows XP not only allows you to set a strong password to protect your computer, but also enables you to create a password reset disk to recover Windows XP password. So if you forgot Windows XP password, it is no need for you to reinstall computer. However, Windows XP has been released for several years and used by majority PC users, but there are still some PC users do not know how to create a password reset disk. Here I will show you how to create and use Windows XP password reset disk to help you to perform Windows XP password recovery.

To create a Windows XP password reset disk, you need to prepare a USB flash drive in advance before you follow the steps to create a password reset disk on Windows XP.

Step 1: Click Start button to select Control Panel.

Step 2: Click User Account on the following Windows screen.

Step 3: Select the User Account you want to create password reset disk for.

Step 4: Click Prevent a forgotten password.

Step 5: The Windows Password reset wizard will come up, Click Next.

Step 6: Insert your USB drive in computer. The next box will say Create a Password Reset Disk and ask you to insert your blank formatted disk in your floppy drive. Click the Next button.

Step 7: Enter your password at the Current User Account Password Box and click Next.

Step 8: Windows XP will create the password reset disk. When the progress indicator shows 100% complete, click Next.

Step 9: Click Finish when the forgotten password wizard box prompts you to do so.

When the Windows XP password reset disk is created, a file named userkey.psw will appear on your USB flash drive. You only need to create a disk for your Windows XP login password once. No matter how many times you change your password, this disk will always allow you to create a new one. Please remember to keep it in a safe location. And when you forget your password, you can use this USB flash drive to recover Windows XP password. Below are the Windows XP password recovery steps.

Step 1: Start your computer to enter the Windows XP log on screen.

Step 2: Type an incorrect password in the Password box, and then press Enter.

Step 3: In the following Logon Failed dialog box, click use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts.

Step 4: On the Welcome to the Password Reset Wizard page, click Next.

Step 5: Insert the password reset disk, and then click Next.

Step 6: On the Reset the User Account Password page, type a new password twice.

Step 7: In the Type a new password hint box, type a hint, click Next, then click Finish.

Now your Windows XP password has been reset. You can log on your computer with the new password. And if forget to create a password reset disk, you can still perform Windows XP password recovery with Windows password recovery software like Windows Login Recovery. It can help you recover Windows XP password by burning a bootable CD / DVD or USB flash drive. In addition to perform Windows XP Password recovery, it can also help you recover Windows administrator password, standard user password on Windows 7 / Vista / Server 2008 / 2003, etc.
