Help!
My USB mass storage device is not being acknolwdged by the system (It wont
even light up!), yet other USB devices (webcam, scanner etc) work just fine
in the same USB ports.

As far as i know USB mass storage devices shouldnt need a driver...

I cant figure out whats going on!

It could have failed.
Did you try it on another computer?

Whilst generally true under XP, it is not universal. However, having said
that, storage devices that do need drivers are rare.
