Found the answer. very simple actually....

First is to ensure that the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR start value is 3.

If you are an administrator on the machine, ensure C:\windows\system32\drivers have SYSTEM user access especially USBSTOR.SYS.

If you don't have usbstor.inf in that directory or anywhere in c:\windows, go download from the web.

Go to Device Manager an uninstall the " ? " which was a result of the failed driver installation.

Plug-in the device, then when asked where to search, point to c:\windows\system32\drivers...

You saved my month, Martiniko!

Hello!
Thank you very much for your post. I had the problem of not recognising the USB storage device since 1 and a half year. Our system administrators, company service experts could not resove it. Now I got it resolved by downloading usbstor.inf and granting administrator privileges to usbstor.sys. Thanks a lot once again.....

Had a similar problem only my mass storage device worked on one computer and had an error on another. Finally checked the BIOS. There is a setting "enable keyboard/storage device" --make sure that is enabled. Thats all it took for me.

All Windoze from 2000 onward have built-in support for all USB mass storage devices. If the flash drive doesn't get recognized, unplug it and plug it in a different port. Often that fixes this problem. Don't give up too soon, sometimes it takes awhile for it to find it. With USB hard disks, you have to go to Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management and give it a drive letter.

1*First try your device on some other system. There may be chance that it is problem with your system. Like problem in OS, system port.

2*Unplug and plug can also fix this problem. sometime, the cable is not properly attached.

3*Start -->> Run -->> type devmgmt.msc -->>OK -->> Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
Right-click the USB Root Hub, and then click Properties.
Click the Power Management tab.
Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

To Matriniko:

So many thanks!!! In fact, my PC has just "lost a way" to USB drivers of all kinds. After I have read your post, aAll the problems were solved in a few minutes: I've just deleted everything that did not work properly, then when Wizard asked me for a way to .inf files (in English version it should be something like "Explore the following location") I have browsed to the C:\Windows\inf directory, and then whenever the following Wizards asked me same questions, I gave the same answer. Everything, including the USB flash, have then been installed and works as it should.

Many thanks again for the hint!!!

If you would like to format it, in XP, you have to download by searching the HPusbformat tool : SP27608.exe, install it, and go through its menu, to format the 32 or 128gb in FAT32. I use it and work well. If move the 32 or 128gr from to one xp to another 7 or vista, it should go back to the firs same problem loosing data or hosting its data.
Still is having problem -data traveler 200- ask kingston for more, if she answer, please informed me.
