USB Flash mem stick error Tags: Flash Media USB Flash USB Storage Last response: May 30, 2008 3:39 PM in Storage Share mclaughlin97 May 24, 2008 1:03:54 PM Hi Guys New to this site and really looking for some help. I have purchased two new USB mem sticks from Play.com and unable to get them to be recognised on my PC. They will work on other PC and laptop. When I put into USB port New hard ware wizard runs, looks for driver then fails with following error messages: An error occurred during the installation of the device. The data is invalid. Am some what confused as I can use my Cosair Flash Voyager and Sony stick which I have used for a long while. It is just any new ones give the same error as above. Any ideas please Kind Regards David More about : usb flash mem stick error chuckt May 24, 2008 4:31:35 PM What operating system are you running? Have you checked the device manager under control panel? If there are any question marks in there, you might want to right click on them. mclaughlin97 May 25, 2008 9:54:42 AM Hi I am using XP SP3.
