Hi there, which operating system is it running?

Some 'Old" flash drives require drivers.
Is your hard drive (Fat?).
If your hard drive is "fat" you might have to format your
flash drives to the fat format.

Thank you for help, my laptop has got xp home media....BIG But, firstly I must admit to going to other forums to ask the same question, one thing I didnt think of doing was going to DEVICE MANAGER in SAFE MODE,,It was a good IDEA, because their was usb network adapters doubled and doubled again for some unreason,, hopefully deleteing stuff from their will fix my problem,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I agree Firefox is very browser and not part of microsoft great

removing usb drivers without a windows disc is not wise to do :badpc: and if windows is on a partition on your drive its a bad discision :badpc:

If you delete whatever in device manager, if Windows needs the drivers, it'll reload them when you reboot.

If it doesnt, the drivers shouldnt load again.

Have you re-downloaded the chipset drivers from the manufacturers site?
