Just borrowed a USB Memory Stick (not a mini hard drive) from a mate to copy some stuff, but my system keeps asking for a driver. I thought that there was no need for a driver for these sticks, or am I wrong and I need a driver ? Checked with my mate about a driver, but he didn't have one. Any ideas ? I am using Vista Home Premium 32bit. Strange thing is, he says it works on his sons Vista PC.
Everything else I have plugged in to my USBs work ok - wireless mouse, wireless keyboard, USB modem, external hard drive, printer. It's just seems to be this stick that is being a pain. I did try the C:\Windows\System32 location as a driver to see if it would work, but, it didn't. I get this error : "USB Flash Memory Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. USB Mass Storage Device The system cannot find the file specified. If you know the manufacturere of your devices, you can visit the website and check the support section for driver software." Just for info. It's a play.com 2gb memory stick.
Hmm, it seems you are not alone, have a look through these you might find an answer - failing that, the only other advice I can offer is to sell sell that stick to someone who has XP, then get yourself one that works with your Visa. Or, maybe play.com will do an exchange for you.
