Is XP up before DRIVER ACTIVE?

Maybe you can try this.

Plan A:
(1) Disconnect usb K&M
(2) Restart machine
(3) Reconnect usb K&M, this may make XP automatically find correct drive for them.
(4) Restart machine to see any good.

If not, plan B:
(1) Disconnect usb K&M
(2) Switch off power to your usb hub
(3) Restart machine
(4) Reconnect usb K&M
(5) Switch on power of usb hub
(6) See what happen

If not Plan C, try different usb port.

I had a similar problem, solve by plan B.

Still not working, Plan D: get supplier to sort out.

For most usb devices, the drive software need to be installed before connecting devices.
