Specs: Windows XP, 3 GHz / 759 MB
I just installed WinXp Pro Sp3 on this computer. I have added the necessary drivers for the Chipsets.

The computer has 4 usb ports on the back of the computer and one in the front along with a multil card reader.

The problem is none of the port will show the content that is on the flash drive.
The drive shows up in the Window explorer but none of content on the drive will show up.

I have uninstalled and re-installed all the drivers needed for the usb ports. But none of these has change the problem. Using instruction supplied by MS for this type of problem.

These same ports will work properly with usb mouse and keyboards. Also I have tried working different usb flash drives, however none of them show the content of any of the drives.

Any idea of what to do next?

Your problem is very common.
If you plug the flash drive into a port it can work properly with, it probably won't read properly on ANY computer. Usually the problem is easily fixed.

Respone # 2 is referring to a hard drive .
My problem is with a flash/thumb drive 1 Gb not a hard drive.

So I do not think #2 does not apply, the power requirements of a flash drive minuimal.

Thanks for the reply

That response 2 is about a pen drive = flash drive.
Only the last part of it mentions a hard drive but the point of that is something may work in a port on the back if the case if there is no device in the port above or below it.

See the first link referred to in that response 2. That has extensive info.The last link in that info when you go there explains how your data probably got damaged

I referred you to that response 2 because it has a specific link - the second one - to the programs you can use to repair the data damage - that applies to flash drives, memory cards, and hard drives..

Why am I using links to previous info ?

I got tired of typing the same info over and over again about the same problems.
