What version of Windows are you using? If you happen to be using Win98 or
Win98 second edition (not Me, 2K, XP, or Vista) try one of these as a
universal USB storage device driver (there's two different ones, one is for
98 and the other for 98se):

If you're using 98lite (http://www.litepc.com/98lite.html) on your machine,
first boot in DOS mode and make a copy of explorer.exe
(c:\windows\explorer.exe). I tried that universal driver and it messed up
explorer.exe when 98lite is installed. I fixed it by installing the
universal USB driver, rebooting when it asked for it, stopping the boot
process when it rebooted by using the <F8> key, selected DOS mode, and
re-copied my backup explorer.exe over the explorer.exe that was there after
reboot. If you don't do this explorer crashes when Windows loads. This
backup/copy only works if you've installed 98lite. If you haven't installed
98lite you should have no problems.

Also, if there are firmware problems, these guys may help:
