Re: My System Windows Xp Cannot read Usb thumb drive
If you insert it on a USB located on motherboard there usually should not be problems, only if you forget to enable in BIOS, USB 2.0 or USB legacy support. If you have a card reader installed, please verify the pin connection required. You can find it in your motherboard manul. USB Legacy is generally required if you want to boot from some USB device and not all motherboards require that to be enabled to recognize and boot from USB devices.

Connect a USB DVD drive or use a thumb drive (USB memory stick) that is bootable with the operating system on it. Make sure that your system (in setup) is set to recognize your DVD drive or USB stick BEFORE the hard drive.
These are the system requirements for the M-Audio Fast Track USB input. Be sure that you meet these requirements, or else upgrade your system to meet them.
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS-FAST TRACK HARDWARE
OS: Windows Vista 32/64 or Windows XP (SP3) Home or Professional
CPU: Pentium 4 2.0GHz, 1 GB RAM, 1 native USB port
OS: OS X 10.4.11
CPU: G4 (native), 1 GB RAM, 1 native USB port
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS-PRO TOOLS M-POWERED ESSENTIAL HARDWARE
OS: Windows Vista 32/64 or Windows XP (SP3)
CPU: 1.8GHz multi-core (Intel or AMD), 5400RPM drive, DVD-ROM drive, 4 GB hard drive space (additional space required for loop content)
OS: OS X 10.5.5 or greater
CPU: 1.8GHz Intel multi-core, 5400RPM drive, DVD-ROM drive, 4 GB hard drive space (additional space required for loop content)
Make sure you are logged in as an administrator. I'd also try the thumb drive in a different computer just to make sure the problem isn't with the thumb drive itself. The drive could also be unformatted, or formatted with a filesystem for a different platform that can't be read by XP.
First is the light on the nexstar coming on when you plug it in, if so what colour? If not try using both USB connectors on the PC end to plug in, it's possible you're not getting enough power if the light is not on as many 2.5" hdd enclosures require 2 USB connections one for power and data and the other for additional power.
Next, if the light is on but no drive in my computer, right-click on my computer, then left-click manage, select disk management from the MCC window that pops up. If your Nexstar HDD shows up here, identify it on the bottom part of the window and report back what is said there.
If it is not there and the light is on, try a different USB port. If the light is not on or you tried the other ports and still no luck the enclosure itself may have failed.
Try moving the HDD into a new enclosure and try again. If this works, Great, if not then the HDD may be damaged and may need a pro to get your files back. If that is the case report back here with your progress and region and I will recommend an appropriate pro.
If you have the 4GB card the most likely problem is your reader is not SDHC compatible. SDHC cards are all SD cards that are 4GB and larger. If your reader is the reason then you must get a new reader to plug into your USB port that will read SDHC cards.
I sold the nano pen drive to my friend :-) i just use a kingston pen drive. I think maybe the fujitsu fmv couldn't support/read the nano pen drive "cause i've installed the driver from imation web site but it still won't detect the nano pen drive.
The Windows 98 system may have changed the drive letter of the thumb drive. In windows XP, open control panel - administrative tools. Then go into the removable drives option where you can change the drive letter. Change the thumb drive to a drive letter that does not conflict with another device on your system. Make sure your thumb drive is in the USB slot. Alternately, you can change the drive letter of the conflicting drive...
If you are using Windows 98 then you have to istalled driver for your external USB HDD.
If you are using Windows XP/Vista then the masstorage drivers for USB HDD is allready installed in your system, as it comes with the OS.
Some time due to conflict or bad contact your system might not read the USB devices:
Be sure that switch is on (if there is any switch in USB HDD).
Try to check the connection.
Try in different USB port.
Also check the USB cable is good.
If still no success try to use in another system and let me know your feed back.
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".
