  • How to enable USB storage in 2003

    Hi,

    I have followed the advice given in this thread, and also googled incase there is something more recent than the last post, but still unable to enable USB storage on an old domain controller I have been given for studying purposes.

    Although the plan is to remove the OS, i would like to learn from this if possible.

    The value for USB store is 3 and there are no deny permissions set. The only logon scripts within the sysvol folder are for mapped drives for users. As far as I am aware there is no third part utility I can see which is causing this to happen.

    I have also tried placing the USB stick in the DC and logging in, hoping that I could access it this way. It is domain wide and not just on the controller.

    Thanks for reading.

    I assume you have checked USB is enabled in the BIOS?

    Since this is outwith the control of the OS, no registry changes would detect / enable it.

      Tom,

      Thanks for your reply.

      Yes, the BIOS does have USB enabled; the DC detects the flash drive and issues it with a drive letter, but *access is denied* when trying to explore.

        Errr.... is the USB drive formatted NTFS on another system? If so, it's just possible that you've used permissions to deny access to it!

          Tom,

          Thanks for your reply. No, the usb flash stick is FAT based.
