    I just bought a 1gb ipod shuffle and when I plug it in windows finds it and says its ready to use, I can open up the ipod removable device drive if i click on it right after windows says its ready to use then it will lock up my computer/windows explorer. this hasn’t just happened with the shuffle i also have the same problem with other usb storage devices. I'm on windows xp sp1 3.0ghz p4 with 1gig of ram i updated all the drivers for usb from intel and i'm still having the same problem.

    I would honestly reformat your system... You are not running sp2 (which is dumb) so your system is probably fucked, anyway.

    Thanks for the reply; my computer is updated with all the latest fixes just not on sp2 because I don’t like sp2. My system is not fucked it just has a problem. You might think formatting will fix any problem but your wrong as I said I have had this problem with other storage devices, and the problem goes back before my last format.

    I think you unplugging your computer and never touching anything electronic again will definitely solve your problem.

    btw, "because I don't like sp2" is a HORRIBLE reason to say insecure.

    Nevermind him...he's just a troll.

    One thing you could try to do is open device manager and delete the USB hubs (that is, the root devices). This should also remove all devices you connect through USB. Then select Action->Detect new hardware.

    I know it sounds silly, but it's basic troubleshooting at this point.

    I agree with the comments about not having SP2, but do we ever get a break from you being an asshole in every thread you post?
