The following is a copy of a post I made recently on the Microsoft Community forum and for which, so far, I have had no reply. Hopefully someone on this forum may be able to offer some advice:
I still run an XP Pro SP3 desktop but it is not connected to the internet. I also use a Windows 7 desktop that does have an internet connection. Sometimes I use usb memory sticks to transfer files between the two computers.
Even though the memory sticks work perfectly well in the XP system, whenever I use them the Event Viewer reports an error 'RSM could not load media in Drive 0 of library USB Flash Drive USB device' or similar. I also get similar errors when I use the front panel card reader (included when new so not a later installation). Windows 7 reports no errors with the same devices.
This appears merely a nuisance rather than a problem for me because, as I have said, everything is working fine. I would be grateful for comments and advice from other forum members who may be able to offer some sort of explanation.
