    There may be 2 sets of drivers here. One for the USB on the computer and 1 for the devices themselves. If you reinstalled XP twice, I am confident that you know how to look at the Device Manager and look at the USB (probably at the bottom of the list) and make sure those drivers are up to date. Something tells me after the install those drivers were fouled up. After that, make sure you have the drivers for you flash drive and camera installed before you connect them.

    Suggestion: mayto to do with USB 2.0 ? HIgh Speed USB. Make sure your machine is capable of supporting USB2.0 Alternatively install the driver provided with the thumb drive. It should work.

    You might want to list your machine specification, it would help to narrow down your problem. :)
