My wife bought me for my birthday ( <img src=/S/angel.gif border=0 alt=angel width=15 height=21>) one of those new Maxtor 3000LE USB 2.0 drives. This PC has an ASUS P4B266 board that supports USB 2.0 and the new MS USB 2.0 driver (5.1.2600.0) has been installed. For all intents and purposes that I can see, the drive seems to be working well, but XP generates the message that an error occurred during installation of the device, and "One of the filter drivers installed for this device is invalid". The device manager also has the drive flagged with an "!".

In the driver section of the Device Mgr / Properties, there are three drivers listed: drvmcdb.sys; iomdsk.sys and PartMgr.sys. I'm guessing that one of these is incorrect, probably the iomdsk.sys. I'm wondering if anyone here has had any experience with this particular stuff and has any ideas.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
