Hi All

I have a fairly new X3200 (actually only a few months old) which has SBS 2008 Premium on it where all of a sudden I am unable to access any USB drives. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, disabling and then reenabling, unplugging drives removing from device manager, rebooting and plugging back in. Even read through hundreds of posts that say to remove the upper and lower filters, which I did and my server refused to reboot.... it would get to the WIndows scrolling bit and then reboot continually. I was able to boot back to the last known good configuration thank goodness, but am now at a loss as to what to do next.

Any suggestions Please?
Theresa :thumbsup:

Code 39 means that the driver itself is corrupt. Uninstalling and reinstalling will not work because it will just reload the same corrupted driver since more than likely it is the only one available. You will have to uninstall the the driver for the usb ports via device manager and re-install the new usb drivers if you can get them from IBM. They could be part of the chipset driver as well so get that if you can. Otherwise you will have to find all of the driver files from the driver tab in device manager and restore them from a backup when all of the USB ports were working.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
