    I have a laptop running XP home.I have plugged my new CD burner into the USB port and I am now getting the above message.I may be nuts,but I don't think I was getting this message 2 days ago when I first plugged the device in.
    Device manager shows the following:(no problems with devices)

    USB root hub driver M/S 7/1/2001 V 5.1.2600.0
    VIA rev5 or later USB universal host controller VIA technologies with same driver info

    USB Mass storage device(cd burner)

    Everything seems to be working fine.I am using the on board XP burning software with no problems.
    If this is something that I can easily correct,I'd like to.

    Have made no hardware or software changes after adding the burner.
    Thanks for any info.

    Does the burner require specific drivers to function properly?

    Is the burner USB v2.0?

    Are you using a powered hub or straight into the port on the PC.

    Also,
    some more system specific info would be good...

    Sexytech:Thanks for the reply.The answers are:
    Burner is a USB2 device.
    It is plugged directly into my laptop,which is a Compaq 720US.
    It did not require a special driver according to the install instructions.

    Think I found the answer on another forum.XP does not have USB 2.0 support built in.

    Just an FYI...

    The WinXP Service Pack that is due out this fall is supposed to have USB 2.0 support.
