USB thumb drive problem
My brother called today and has a fairly new computer, USB 2 ports and a hub also. He has an old thumb drive (LG 1 gig) that it recognizes, as well as a printer and camera.
Now he bought a new USB 1 gig thumb drive and it does not recognize it. When you plug it in it does the weird 4 bong noise thingie, does not show up in Device Manager. He tried an old camera that has never been plugged into this computer, same thing. Seems like anything that has not ever been used on this system does not get recgonized???
The user accouint is an Admin account, rebooted, tried to reinstall drivers, no luck.
Any suggestions, other than reinstall Windows XP?
