we have a very unique problem going on on my husbands computer. Before I post this problem- i do want to say that he is a technician of many years and knows his way around a box quite well..
however, in all his years- he has never seen anything quite like this:
running a xp system with NTFS the following has occured
All Sata disk drives and USB card reader drives as well as any insterted USB devices are all coming up in the Device Manager as Unknown ?
The devices are all named properly under the unknown field yet are not in thier prospective places. The sata drives are working properly but NO USB device will operate despite the fact that in the device manager they are recognized as what they are.
Any Ideas ???
