I am facing a problem with a Windows XP SP3 (Home Edition) and USB devices.

When I connect a USB Stick device, it is recognized but the Hardware Wizard pops up and I cannot find any drivers.

The USB sticks are working fine to other PCs.

Any solution?

Check your C:\Windows\Inf directory and check for make sure that usbstor.inf and usbstor.pnf are both there.

If they aren't there, copy them from a working installation or from your Windows media.
