Default Usb device not recognized

I am getting the error:

Usb device not recognized. When i insert any Mass storage (Thumb Drive, or hard drive). However, My wireless mouse and Netgear wireless card that runs both off of USB works. I have tried the following.

1. Unplugged my PC for hours as I have read worked for some people.

2. Reformated my drive to see if that works. No luck

3. Went to the device manager and unistalled the device/driver and installed again

The computer that I have is a Gateway 500x...running windows xp...I got the computer from a friend of mine and put windows xp on it that i had from my Compaq persario...It works fine, but I thought that I was missing the driver for the I went to Gateways website looked up my computer and downloaded and installed all the drivers for the computer...(maybe I am missing one the usb one though).

do i have to find the driver for it to recongize the USB device? If so where at?

Any help would be great.
