  • vhd driver or usb thumbdrive driver not load (code 38)


    i refer to the following article.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123

    it seems that windows 8 doesn't offer the Troubleshooting Wizard on the General tab.

    the culprit is shadowdefender.

    http://www.shadowdefender.com/

    the diskpt.sys initiated by shadowdefender inhibits windows 8 to load another external drive device.

    shadowdefender works fine in windows 7.
