Aftyer re-installing windows xp my usb ports will not recognise a mass stoage device ie camera usb memory or external hard drive. if i start up with device connected it is ok for a while but then loses the device again. Any ideas?
Did you install any of the service packs, especially the early ones? I believe that some of the service packs contained USB updates. I'd make sure you are running SP3 and the rest of the recommended OS updates.
