I have WinXP in my Acer Aspire 5600 Series.
I recently revert back to my Factory Image setup.
What i noticed after a week was tha everything is working fine except the USB storage driver.
The driver of course looks fine in the device manager.
But when i put on a usb storage device i get "disk not formatted" error.
Even if i try to format it, it sais that it failed.

I have tried 3-4 different USB drives and none works.
I have tried to uninstall SP3 and still doesn't work.
I deleted this file : C:\WINDOWS\inf\infcache.1 but still don't works.

The problem is that i don't remember having problem before.

Also when i put ubuntu linux or boot with Hiren Boot CD's Mini Windows XP, then the USB works fine !

Any ideas ?
