    So my USB flash devices aren't working

    My USB camera, printer, keyboard, mouse work fine.

    When try to sync my iphone, however, it tells me after a few minutes that "the device has timed out".

    Similarly, with my USB flash drive, i can copy/paste files for a couple minutes, until the computer can no longer detect the USB drive, and tells me that the "parameter is incorrect" for the file i'm copying.

    I've tried
    -updating my drivers
    -uninstalling my USB drivers, then allowing them to reinstall
    -ensuring that the will not be turned off to save power

    For some reason, i can't connect to windows update.
    I have about 6 gigs of media that i'd like to save on this computer so reformat is out of the question

    My computer is running
    XP Pro SP2
    intel 915g motherboard
    2 gigs of ram

    Any help would be much appreciated.
