Unuseable Serial Bus - crashes PC

  Knot2sure 16:46 26 Mar 2004

I have recently purchased a fuji A310 digital camera, but when i connected it to my PC, running XP Pro, through the USB port, it crashes.
It goes through the detection and recognises the camera, as well as thinking its a USB mass storage device and a disk drive.

Its when it detects it as a disk drive that it crashes, no warning, just switches off and reboots. I tried connecting a USB storage device and the same problem occours leading me to belive a USB driver problem. Is there anyone out there who has had this problem or knows how to fix it?

Thanx in advance

now its my turn ;-)

lol, um well a crashing usb....
mabye its conflicting with another device, as i have a graphics card, modem,usb,ide,soundcard in irq 11. this leads me to all sorts of problems. so mabye its the same for you???? also is ur usb 1.0/1.1? or is it 2.0? mabye its tryin to load device into 2.0 mode and its conflicting.

best way is to looka t all your devices in the device manager and not down anything peculiar, and its resorces.

My USB mouse works fine on the port, and there is nothing untoward in the device manager. It only seems to crash when the computer detects a 'disk drive'. i have connected to other computers with no problem, plus the camera is not recognised as a disk drive.

I have re installed the drivers with no improvement. It is a USB 1.0 port, not sure what else to try!

If you have a Soundblaster Live or Audigy, disable Disk Detector, as this prevents a USB Flashdirve from being detected

I see it has a VIA chipset so have had a look here for help which has driver for all known issues click here

Try Microsoft patch No Q322205 Worked for my camera

OK, to try to put an end to this crazyness i went out an got a USB 2 PCI card, still having the sam problem, as well as XP being very tempramental over the drivers. I removed all traces of USB hubs and tried to install the VIA ones suggested but XP always reverts back to its original generic ones, it says the install is complete and reboots, but nothing changes in device manager and the instal itself takes a split second. Also it wont detect the new USB 2.0 port as USB 2.0, just lists it as a standard USB hub.

Anyone got any ideas?
