can anyone help me with this problem?
It started when i deleted a file from my Laptop (ntldr) by accident and i had to reload windows XP professional.

Since i have done this whenever i plug my USB memory stick into the USB port it makes a noise to show it is plugged in and the "safety remove hardware" Comes up, but does NOT show up in "My computer", and does NOT come up with the little box asking what i would like to do with it and i basically cannot open files on it.

I have tried updating the file but it says "The wizard could not find a better match for your hardware than the software you currently have installed"

I'm sure it's obvious but I'm at a complete loss as i assumed it was just needing updating?
Nadia :thumbsup: :flowers:

Use the device manager to delete the USB adapter/controller/root hub it is on (whatever shows a yellow or red warning mark) , then reboot and let Windows find it and reinstall it.
When you get to the choice of where to get the drivers untic everything except Windows Update.
