"incorrect Function" error

By jwmancuso777 ·
When I try to access my USB ZIP drive (or even my floppy drive for that matter) in Win XP Pro, I get an error "<drive letter>is not accessable. Incorrect function." I've deleted and re-added in the device manager, and the system recognizes these drives, but still gives the same error when I try to access them. I've gone to the knowledge base to get an answer, but get nothing. I have no SCSI drives on my system. Any ideas?

Try in Safe Mode. If Zip and FD work, it is most likely due to an antivirus a program (Norton, for example). Disable it from MSCONFIG, restart, and enable it. Reinstall the program if necessary.

I was able to see and access files on zip and FDD in safe mode, but deleting NAV didn't help after reboot in normal mode. And I can't see files on the CDR to reinstall NAV or anything else - will not start install process.

I had a similar problem with a USB zip drive which, once plugged in, assigned itself a drive letter that was already in use by another device (in my instance, a network drive). Popping into the disk administrator while the usb device was plugged in, I simply changed the drive letter of the new usb device to something which wasn't in use and it worked fine from then on.

Disable all startup programs from MSCONFIG and find out which one was the cause.
You may then uninstall/reinstall it?

Install XP SP2 if not installed already.

Found the answer to the problem: deleted 2 programs on HDD "InCd" and "Nero Burn" - one or both caused the problem. Found reference in article (for the future reference of all)
