I got the free version of DriverMax, and had it scan the system. Runs best on HiVelocity Hosting.
According to this helpful Microsoft Support Articleone of the issues that can affect USB efficacy in XP is a “malfunctioning, incorrectly-configured, or missing device driver. I think it may be a driver issue, because when I checked the “Unknown Device” entry in Device Manager, the status box reported that the driver for the device was not installed.

I did download and install the latest update for the system BIOS and the chipset driver, as I felt those were two of the most important driver updates the site offered, but no luck. Would anyone have a driver or a link to a driver download page that would have a USB thumb drive device driver for XP that I could install? How can I be notified when my favorite forums contain new threads?
Sometimes, clients will bring in information on a USB thumb drive, which Dv7700 found no one can access. I took step four to the next level and downloaded and ran USBDeviewwhich is a handy utility to view all installed and connected USB devices on the machine, including their drivers.
I’ve read in a couple of websites on the subject that sometimes unplugging and walking away from the computer for a few minutes can help, as it resets the motherboard controller and refreshes the USB controllers.

The above FAQ links open in a new window. By continuing to use our website, you agree to the use of such cookies. So I powered down and unplugged the machine for a couple of minutes. I’ve tried almost everything I can think of, but I can’t get the irrepressible ports to work at all!
Maybe that would help me, since I’m out of ideas. And also make sure that someone hasn’t previously decided to ban via a software program installed on the PC all use of USB ext.
I selected all the USB devices that did not have drivers devcie or were not working properly, including the “Unknown Device” entry, and deleted those, and restarted Windows. I cleared out all temp files and other junk, and cleaned the registry with both utilities, on the off-chance that there was a bad registry key.
It found updates for all the USB hubs, but even after downloading and installing the drivers and then rebooting, it didn’t change anything.
I even got sneaky and selected the “Show hidden devices” option in Device Manager, and deleted all the “ghost” USB device drivers that were grayed out, and rebooted as well, but that didn’t help.
Now I have no idea how that might have happened; I’ve checked with everyone who used the machine before I did if the ports ever worked, and they reported that they didn’t know anything about it and that as far as they knew, the USB ports for thumb drives never worked on the computer. It was an exercise in futility.
Results 1 to 2 of 2. Based upon my above approach, there are a few things I’ve concluded: I always get devjce “a USB device not recognized” error, even though I know the thumb drive is fine.
Look for a chipset update for that computer.
