Pls help on this if it has any sloution.

There's a copy of the 3 files you need. Thanks. As you said in your first post, at one point, I had to uninstall all the drivers with question marks, and painfully go through every one again individually to re-install it. Now, based on this posting, I restored the usb*.inf files (and some usb drivers to the folder C:\Windows\System32\Drivers) and now everything works perfectly.

Is this the way it should be? I've spent months on and off looking for a solution to this, now fixed by copying these two files! - Thanks🙂 June 7, 2014 at 3:50 pm Reply Ramis Ohhhhhh Yeah… I did find C:\i386.I found Drivers and a number of other items, but no USBSTOR.SY. After copying usbstor.inf from my colleague's computer and putting it back to c:\windows\inf, everthing works great.

Here you are 3 years later still saving people from going nuts over this issue. check my blog I get strange results sometimes if I just jump to the latest service pack. I've had my new computer almost a year now with this problem and it was the only one in the office of over 200 computers that did this. Tried that -searches for driver in system 32 and then gives the following error : The Data is invalid.

Grif thanks for your confidence and your help. Make sure USBSTOR.INF is stillthere!

Thanks for all the help. It can only be run from Windows, in normal mode. by Cursorcowboy / February 22, 2006 8:15 PM PST In reply to: ''USBSTOR.SYS'' Isn't it C:\(eye)386.

In the middle of the process it stopped.

If the hard drive tests show NO problems what-so-ever with the hard drive, then it is safe to proceed with more work to rectify the problem with the Windows system. AustrAlienGoogle is my friend. Eventually I gave her my iPod as a present and she has the same problems when plugging it in. reply *bow down* thank you SOOO comment - January 27, 2009 - 8:10pm *bow down* thank you SOOO much, this fix worked just fine, just pointing it at the INF folder
