That has Storage capabilities, whether it be a jump drive, external HD, camera, ipod, etc. is recognized by XP as a DRIVE.
After plugging in the device, right click on "My Computer" (right on the drop downmenu or icon, no diff) - Click "Manage" - then "Disk Management"
You should see your device there. It may need to be initialised - right click on it for options.
Also check you USB connections in Device Manager for "splats"
If you have a USB printer, try it in every port.
I'm spooked! Running Windows XP, SP2. If I plug in my camera or mini-USB drive, the speaker makes that "ding-****" (or is it "****-ding"?) sound, but that is it. Nowhere else can you tell that the device is found. This all worked a few months ago. Not sure what happened. I've tried multiple devices, cables and different USB ports, all the same. Does not show drive or camera on My Computer.
Device manager says all is working fine. Drivers seem ok. Help?
