|Do other usb devices work on that usb port? I have one usb stick that I have to "wiggle" a bit so the light blinks and it's recognized. |
If the issue is with the usb ports itself then I seem to remember years ago having to go into device mgr and uninstalling the usb root hubs but not the usb host controler(s) and restarting Xp twice.
Hope this helps
