    Is SP2 installed ?
    Do you have all the Motherboard drivers installed
    USB flash devices usually do not need drivers in Xp (well mostly)

    Yes, SP2 is installed
    I guess I do, there is no driver missing
    No they dont. it has worked a few days a go.

    OK here's a few more !

    Go back to Device Manager
    Click on "View" (in the toolbar) then "Show Hidden Devices"
    Remove all the queried devices (ie clean them all out)

    Remove your USB flash drive

    Restart

    Insert your flash drive
