USB driver woes

By lpollsnoop
Jul 28, 2008
  1. Windows XP Home SP2

    My system stopped recognizing my Canon Powershot75 when I plug it into USB
    port - I tried using a card reader and the system didn't recognize that either.

    I think the USB drivers in System32/Drivers must have been corrupted and want
    to use my XP Disc to replace the System32 Drivers with those on the XP installation
    disk - but am not sure how to do it - The XP disc has the drivers in a '.cab' file.

    Can anyone give some insight?

    Many thanks

    Michael

    Have you tried uninstalling all the usb drivers and refreshing in device manager ?
