hello,
I've had years with no issues transfering pictures or videos from cameras to my xp pc from various usb devices. I even have flash drives that work perfectly on my p.c. Yesterday i bought a new video cam/camera and another flash drive usb storage device. When i plug either of these new devices (neither came with software) into my usb ports; i get a new message telling me i must install hardward in order for windows to run the new device. Well it came with no hardware? Silimiar cameras and identical flash drives have never required installation, they simply appear as devices with removable storage under "my computer". Nothing appears under my computer when the new devices are plugged in.

any suggestions? Thank you

Let it install the hardware. Assuming the devices are compatible with XP then the lack of a disk implies that XP has the drivers available to install. Assuming your OS is up to date.
