I have an Acer Aspire T310-H96K desktop with XP Home on it. I have formattedthe HD and installed all drivers successfully. However, certain USB devices do not work whilst others do. A HP printer and BT Modem work fine but not a new digital camera or optical mouse.
When I plug them in I get the error message "An error occurred during the installation of this device. The data is invalid."
I've tried going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ ENUM\PCI and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ ENUM\USB and setting various Permissions to Full Control (though some are greyed out) but this hasn't worked.
