Wifi USB

Hi, I'm having problems connecting to the internet with my wifi USB dongle on my PC. It's saying something about a flash card ? The dongle is made by Netgear. It's works on my other PC no problem. The computer is running on XP as my other is running Windows Vista, could this be the problem ? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

RE: Wifi USB

can only hazard a guess that you need the correct drivers for your version of windows to be able to read the memory chip on the dongle
try downloading newer software from
