Hello, I have a MSI K8MM3 motherboard, it allows me to connect powered usb devices ( camera, external hard drive etc ) but will not connect or show pendrives that work on other computers. Keyboard stops working when pen drive fitted, then works again a few seconds after pen / flash drive withdrawn
All drivers are bang up to date as of today, no change.
xp home, SP2
amd 2100 *2 processor
1g ram
no conflicts in device manager.
Many thanks for any time.

First thought off the top of my head would be USB 2.0 vs. USB 1.1 compatibility - how old are the pen drives in relation to other USB devices you've connected to the machine?

What operating systems are your other computers running? You could also be looking at a FAT vs. NTFS file system issue - I'm not 100% sure, but I think XP won't read flash drives with the FAT file system.

Just my 2¢.

Hello, thanks for prompt reply.
Drives work on other PC and are usb 2, both are quite new, much newer than a digi cam that works ok in the same drive.
thanks
