I have read a lot of post on several Forums about people haveing problems with windows finding the drivers for the newly installed devices. I thought i was having the same problem but I have found that windows is not installing the drivers for anything eventhough the drivers are on the computer. I have a 120g mator HDD installed in a generic enclosure. I had it set up with only one 120g partition so i decided to break it down into 4. when i did this using disk management and tryed to format it the new partitions it told me that the partition was not enabled and to restart and then format it. I did and i got the same error meassager (drive not enabled........). I know the drive works with xp because I partitioned it and formated before. after searching the internet for answers and finding nothing I looked at the device manager and forund nothing untill I had it show hidden devices. That is when i found that it did not install the drivers for 4 generic volumes under storage volumes. I went in and updated driver for them all and it worked. Just to see what happened I repartitioned a 128mb thumb drive and got the same and had to install the drive myself. I am going through windows tech support and they had me uninstall my usb controlers to see if that corrected the problem. It didnt I had to install the driver manually. Do any of you think this might be a flaw in sp2?
