Re: IPOD Shuffle, BartPE, PEtoUSB They are all usb2.0 and i am working my way thru them, but the reference was to usb ports, as in one and two. but I can't see where a distinction is made there. Maybe it's just not possible in XP, if xp is going to reset the usb "ports" as it loads. but that was from one of those posts that you cited. Seems like a lot of folks have the same problem. I loaded the stick partition on a usb drive and i get the same result when i try and boot that. Well, one more usb slot to test...see ya later! ..UPDATE..all usb slots tried with same results. oh well. maybe its the build, but the bartPE CD works fine...arg.
