Dodgy USB Stick Handling

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Computerflyer, Dec 29, 2007.

  1. (XP X64, all patches)

    I have a number of USB sticks that work fine and a few that work fine
    on X32 but not on X64.

    Device manager assigns a drive letter and I can operate on the USB
    using line mode in a command window
    (Isn't DOS wonderful!).

    In the GUI world the drive does not show in My Computer or anywhere
    else, except device manager as a disk, as it should.

    Event Viewer has an error 111 which MS Help indicates is a a problem
    with the device, not XP, but 32 bit versions of XP are happy with the
    device. Any idea where I might look for the disconnect between device
    management and the GUI? The problem sticks are by multiple USB
    vendors.

    Thanks :)
