I just plugged in a 128mb Verbatim jump drive to my keyboards USB port. Instead of a drive letter and empty folder coming up on my display--nothing happened and the LED thats supposed to light up on the jump drive did not. Device manager shows that the jump drive showed up as a "USB Mass storage device" under the "Universal Serial Bus COntrollers" section--however it shows the jump drive with a black exclamation mark surrounded by yellow which then says:

This device cannot start (Code 10)

the MS knowledge base says I should get a service pack 1 for WIndows 2000 but I am running Windows XP Pro.
The jump drive LED lights when I plug the drive into a hot USB 4-port hub but when I click on anything in Windows then my computer reboots.

Why all the complications when this jump drive is supposed to just plug and use? I thought XP Pro was supposed to autmatically recognize this drive and make it easy to use?

maybe the jump drive is broken. your voltages going to the usb ports are sagging. cs game server -

Seems to me that Windows Update has a USB 2.0 update...have you checked?
