Question by Jimbo: EVERY time I insert any USB item into my PC (Win XP SP2) I get a stop error (blue screen). More detail below..
I have already tried deleting the USB hubs and letting Winows redetect them, to no avail. I have also updated the video drivers. It does not seem to have made any difference. Doesn’t matter what sort of USB device is inserted: camera-flash drive-external HD-the result is the same: the computer starts to detect the USB device, and then it goes blue screen. I am at wit’s end!

Best answer:

    This is a great USB-key and has a lot of space, my only grievance is that it ships by default with FAT32… which means that u will need to format to have NTFS. I don’t criticize about the price because is definitely worth it.

    This is the first time I’ve attempted to review any Amazon dot com product.

    I purchased two of these drives on special. This brand of drive was recommended to me for the purpose I wished to use it for. I find these drives to be ruggid in their construction. They remind my wife of a travel tooth brush!

    The first thing I did was remove all Kingston Traveler software on the drive itself! I simply wished to move files from one device to another! Since I’m totally blind, I use both drives on the National Library Services new digital player. This is made available through the National Library Service talking book program for the blind and physically handicapped. The player primarily uses a special digital cartridge which has one book per cartridge. The Kingston drive is an alternative when cartridge books are not available or one downloads these books. I probably can get close to thirty books on this 4 gig drive. This depends on the length of all books which were downloaded. Needless to say, the drive works flawlessly for this purpose!

    I highly recommend this drive whether you use its software or not! Jim

    Hi, this is my third thumb drive, and, though pricey, I love the 32GB functionality, and its attractive look. I demoted it a couple stars, though, because of the cap design. Though it goes on stiffly and is unlikely to come apart in a purse or keychain (we’ll see how stiffly it attaches over time), I don’t like the fact that the cap completely disengages from the device and won’t even fit over the back like a capped pen. This means that, when in use, there’s a separate piece that must be placed away from the USB drive itself. There’s also no way to attach a chain to the cap-end of the device so the two pieces could be held together loosely. That’s a recipe for a lost cap which is disastrous in a device that cost over $70. Poor design in my opinion.

    I needed a usb drive for my Xbox 360 and I knew that they have to meet certain speed requirements. I plugged it into my console and formatted it. It ran an automatic speed test and passed. Haven’t had any problems yet! Great product!

    I’ve got no complaints so far about this little guy, it’s half the size of my other flash drives but holds a lot more data. I like the red plastic cover too, it looks cool and protects the entire flash drive, not just the USB connector.

    Try deleting the root hibs and the reinstalling the USB controller drivers from motherboard CD / manuf website before you reooot.

    Also if it reoccurs post a question with exact details of the stop error . . . that after all tells us WHAT stopped.

    looks like a hardware failure.
    if this happens for all USB ports you may consider changing the power source or the motherboard.
    if it happens for only 1 USB port, the USB socket may be mechanically damaged.

    Windows drivers are not always perfect and in any case should be the last resort. Use the drivers provided by your manufacturer via CD or on their website to reinstall the USB drivers. You can usually find the drivers for your USB hub on your motherboard’s manufacturer support site. Simply uninstalling the driver and letting windows redetect it usually does nothing at all because in most cases, Windows will simply look into it’s local cache where it had stored the previous drivers and re-install them essentially changing nothing. So in summary, download the drivers directly from the manufacturer’s website and uninstall the current drivers replacing them with the new and updated version that you have. Reboot and try to use your drive. If the problem still persists, I advise against calling Microsoft as in most cases it will only bring you pain and frustration. You would be better off calling the manufacturer of your computer or contacting a local repair shop. If they can’t help you, you could try contacting Microsoft or doing searches on the internet pertaining to your specific motherboard and any problems other people are having with the USB drives in Windows XP. Good luck and I hope this helps!

    if usb works in past on this windows but now a days its problem then please restart your computer in Safe mode and check your device manager list.
    Delete all USB drivers and ports and any thing else regarding usb.
