"The data is invalid"

  s99Raj 17:55 06 Aug 2008

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
and setting various Permissions to Full Control (though some are greyed out) but this hasn't worked.

Can anyone help with a solution please?

Yes, thank you for that DieSse; I should have said that was onething I'd already tried too, and didn't work.
