I know this is a long shot posting here, but I put together a new system and I'm really stuck.

I have a Opteron 144, Gigabyte K8NNXP-940 with Windows XP SP1a. Whenever I attach a USB storage device (external USB hard drive or pen storage) I receive the error "Data is invalid" when the system tries to auto install the USB Mass Storage driver. I installed the NForce drivers and the USB 2.0 patch. Everything else seems to be working fine.

If anyone has any ideas or knows where there is a .inf file that will allow me to reinstall the USB Mass Storage driver I would really appreciate it.

thanks.

Try a new order for installing windows:-

-Windows XP
-Service Pack 1
-Critical Updates
-nForce 3 driver, graphics, sound modem etc

Dont install any specific mass storage driver, instead, after installing the nforce go to device manager, then under USB select scan for hardware changes. Then force XP to look in c: or whatever is your boot drive, so that it will use a generic driver. This method works fine on the nforce2.

Thanks voodoo3300,

Your order was actually the order that I installed in. I really don't want to have to rebuild the system just to fix this one issue. I think that the Gigabyte drivers might have set the wrong permissions in the registry. Unfortunately I don't know exactly what registry entries are used for the USB storage driver. I think that I will try to set read/write permissions for the entire registry and if that doesn't work maybe I can export registry settings from another XP box where the USB driver is working.

I don't know, it seems like a strange problem and it is frustrating.
thanks
