I thought NTMAPHLP was for firewire not USB...
Anyways, there is an update available from Micros~1 that just might help
you. It is actually a firewire update, but it includes an update to
NTMAPHLP. The article is here, and although it doesn't list your problem
at all, it gives a link to the update package:
This update is aimed towards 98SE, who knows what the diffs are in ME with
this...if you would like to be able to undo it later just make an XCOPY /S
of your /WINDOWS directory prior to starting windows (boot to DOS)
Did the drive come with a driver or any software that you installed?
BTW, this isn't really a alt.comp.hardware type of problem.
