I'm working on a computer for a friend and have found that whenever I plug in a USB storage device, ANY USB storage device (Flash Key, External Hard Drive, etc.) the system recognizes the device and assigns a drive letter as it should but when I try to access the device I get a message box the says "The disk in drive <x> is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?" (where <x> is the drive letter assigned to the device).
The USB ports on this computer work normally otherwise and all of the USB storage devices work fine on other computers.
XP is up to date and has Service Pack 3 installed. The USB ports are 1.1. All the devices I tried were 2.0.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
