I am using Windows XP Home Edition OS. I have recently upgraded my desk top PC and installed a USB 2.0 Port (4 slots). When using a Sandisk USB 2.0 512 MB Cruzer Micro Flash drive the USB 2.0 port does not recognize it even though it shows up in my bottom task bar. If I plug it into a 1.1 port I get an indication that the device would work faster if I plugged it into a 2.0 port and then proceeds to show that I have such ports installed. It works fine in the old 1.1 port. It doesn't appear to be a problem with the USB 2.0 port itself because I have a 1MB Creative Labs MP3 player (USB 2.0) with flash memory operating on that Port without any problem.

Any help in solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Regards and Happy New Year,

Hi,

Try the Sandisk Cruzer on another machine to check that it is working proprtly.

Try unplugging all other USB devices.

Personally I would think the USB flash drive may have failed.
