On some computers the USB device: Ipod, Jumpdrive, flash drive, mp3 player, external harddrive, external dvd, external cd or mass storage device does not show up in my computer nor windows explorer. In my previous entry, I gave a possible usb drive not showing up workaround. In this entry, I will give you a possible solution that worked for me. I now have the USB devices displayed in My Computer and Windows Explorer again. INTERESTING NOTE: This USB problem seems to show up the most on Windows XP Professional. Here is what you want to do to fix the USB problem :
- go to c:windowssystem32drivers
- find one or all of these files: secdrv.sys, sptd.sys and sptdXXXX.sys (XXX is a number)
- rename or delete these files
- reboot your machine
- re-insert your USB device
This should get your USB going again in My Computer. Olan Butler Kansas City Computer Repair
