I recently had a problem with the NTLDR missing so i re installed window XP home service pack 2, but when the computer turned on and i tryed to connect a USB device to the computer it didn't show up so i searched the device manager and it wasn't there.
this computer is not connected to the internet, but will be tomorrow through a USB stick that i wont be able to use, i was also going to use a capture card that can only be used with USB.
i have no way of transferring files unless i move my computer back to the room it was in previously and use the modem, because my other computer does not have a RW disk drive and im guessing transferring file is going to be the easiest way to fix this problem.
So in short no USB port are being shown on the device manager and i was wondering how we could change this so that i may tamper with them :D

AMD athlon(tm)XP 1800+
1.54ghz 758 mb of ram
Microsoft XP service pack 2
home edition
....please dont make me open it again.....
