USB Issue

by islandporgy / February 10, 2008 10:07 AM PST

I reinstalled Windows XP because I had a hardware issue that I could not resolve.
During installation off the motherboard drivers I got a warning when I was installing USB 2 drivers.
My USB flash drive will work, but my External hard drive that works on the rest off my computers will not work. The External HD will work on all the rest off my computers but not on the computer I am working on.
Here is what the warning says.

(Nvidia USB 2.0 host Controler use the inbox driver in service pack 1 Please upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 1 and rescan for hardware change in device Manger.)
I am not to sure I understand what the above is implying

Need Help Thank You Very Much:

Have you installed Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)? If not, then go to windows update and install it.

Service Pack 2

In reply to: SP1?

Why would I have to go back to Service Pack 1. Would service pack 2 have every thing Service Pack 1 have.
This is the first time this has happened to me, installing Windows with Service Pack 2.

Help again. Thank You

oh, I didn't realize you had sp2, but from what it looks like it requires SP1. If nothing else works, you could try to uninstall sp2, and then install sp1...

if it wont work with SP2, it won't work with SP1. Try downloading updated drivers from NVidia.

I Went to Bios Update and it updated Nvidia drivers and that worked.

Thank You Very Much for your help:
