USB Mass Storage Device freezes Windows XP


Recommended Posts

Just reformatted my computer with Windows XP, it's working pretty well,  but I've run into a really annoying problem.  Whenever I plug in my iPod or external hard drive, the computer freezes almost immediately.  No blue screen, no error messages, just total freeze, major system error.  When I plug these devices in, either before or after start up, it will always freeze, usually happens faster if I'm actively reading or writing to the drive.  Couldn't even do a 3 minute file transfer earlier today because it crashes that fast.  I'm really at a loss for what to do about this, when I submitted the error report to Windows they basically said to reinstall all software, drivers, and hardware to try and find the problem.  Not helpful at all.  Anyone got any ideas?
