Unable to load Drivers

Hi Everybody,
I wonder if anyone has encountered this problem before?
I'm trying to upgrade a pal's PC for him so that he can get USB2 for use with his digital camera.
The MoBo is an Abit KR7A-133R with two discs running in Raid 0 and I've tried two PCI boards from different manufacturers which state that they are specifically for addin USB2 facilities to a USB1.1 system. Try as I might I can't get all the drivers needed to install.Windows XP pro reports new hardware etc and one of the two drivers installs and the next tries to but I then get a warning saying something like " cannot install this hardware- the data is invalid". Any ideas? Cheers Jaz

Have you SP2 installed.?

If not you will need it for USB2.

This error appears to be due to a protection problem in the Windows registry and can occur with a variety of drivers (sound cards and SCSI drivers have been reported). To fix this problem, go to Start, Run... and type "regedit" without the quotes to run the Registry Editor. Navigate to


and you will see a number of keys of the form "VEN_xxxx", where xxxx are strings like "1102&DEV_0004&SUBSYS_00011103&REV_04". Under each of these folders will be another folder with a long numerical name. Open each folder and look for the "DeviceDesc" which matches the hardware you are trying to install. Right Click on the "VEN_xxxx" for that device and select 'Permissions' and then tick "Allow" for "Full Control". Close Regedit and then continue with the installation of your device.
I cannot guarantee it works for everyone, but although I swear by it after swearing at it(XP), it should help you if you ever had casual problem.
