Another thing to look at is windows plug'n'pray. Often when a USB
P'n'P auto-dectect goes wrong, windows installs a dummy driver. This
driver must be deleted before the device will install.
Look in Control panel -> system -> hardware -> device manager. The
dummy driver usually installs under "universal serial bus controllers"
but sometimes with a disk drive, it installs under "disk drives". It
is called "dummy device" or something like that. Simply delete that
device, plug your unit in and let it P'n'P normally.
