Does anyone know how to get a USB 2.0 device to work on a USB 1.0 port in Windows XP.

I bought a Sandisk Cruzer mini 256 MB drive and Windows XP says it will function at a reduced speed but in Device Manager it just gets listed as an Unknown device with no driver.  No drivers are needed under XP though.

I know the disk works on the same computer running Windows 2000.  Any ideas?

Go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers.

LOL...  there are no drivers for it under Windows XP.  Anyways, I fixed the problem with a reinstallation of the OS.

Yes, there are drivers for it in XP. Every device must have a driver in order to operate. It just so happens that Windows XP has built-in drivers for USB mass storage devices. The generic drivers however do not always work with every single device. And your problem was more than likely caused by a corrupt or missing device driver. LOL.

Yes most likely a corrupt USBSTOR.sys file but even copying that from a working system didn't help it.  Anyways, as long as the problem is fixed, I can breathe a sigh of relief that it wasn't a waste of money.  Cheesy
