USB Flash Drive not detected on a Windows 2003 machine

By parimala_shankaraiah ·
1. I have installed Windows 2003 on my machine.
2. It has CMI-8738 motherboard(pretty old).
3. When I insert the USB flash drive, it is not getting detected by the Windows 2003 Operating System.

I checked that there are no free USB drivers available on the net to install for 2003 with CMI 8738.

What could be the reason?

Depends on what you mean by not detected

If it is not even appearing in device manager then it sounds like faulty hardware or the port is USB1 and the flash drive only USB2 (unlikely)

If you simply can't see it a new drive letter for it, have a look in computer manager / disk management does it appear there. Could be it trying to use a drive letter that's assigned to a network volume.

CMI-8738 is a PCI Audio Chip. You can download Siw.exe or Aida32 to find out what your Motherboard is. When you know what it is download the Drivers for it. Especially the Chipset Drivers.

Not visible in Device Manager

The USB does not appear in Device Manager itself.

Thanks for your replies. I will check the motherboard and get the drivers for these and try again.
