I'm only starting my 3rd week with XP Pro... but I've really had my hands full trying to get anything USB to work... My Lexar Compact Flash card reader with their latest updated drivers for XP keeps setting off the "New Device Detected" wizard and then crashes the system... My USB Network bridge ain't "bridging and I gave up trying to connect my scanner right from the start!
I heard that XP & USB are not friendly... is this true?

I have had XP Pro since it first came out and have used a USB scanner, mouse, and joystick all with no problems.

I have XP pro and have had absolutely no problem with USB. I'm currently running a USB mouse, keyboard and graphics tablet. All work flawlessly.

What type of system and USB do you have?

I have a friend with a new computer with USB 2.0 and a VIA chipset on his motherboard. Only after installing the latest
VIA 2.44 USB drivers would all his USB equipment work.
(p.s. afterwards he installed SP1 of windows XP - and everything
didn't work anymore! He changed back to an older setup)
It could be something like that getting in the way.....
