Hi folks

Anyone any idea how you find how to control devices in WinXp (all versions). the drives concerned are combined multi card reader+ floppy (floppy norm FFD lead but usb port for rest. these appear as a drive letter (g /h /f whatever)within windows but not accessable under Control panel devices (this also applies to some brands of printers) as these on one unit im looking at keep dissapearing.

Refresh USB Ports
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.
