Cannot uninstall generic drive from device manager

    In trying to download photos from my FUJI camera via USB2, I did not get
    the small window that usually presents options upon turning the camera on,
    on what to do, eg. use Explorer, use Windows Media Player, etc. Upon
    investigation I found that in Device manager under STORAGE VOLUMES, there
    was a yellow exclamation point on the Generic Volume for FUJIFILM USB
    DRIVEUNIT USB.

    I then used the trouble shooting instructions and got to the point it says
    to uninstall the driver. When I do that the Confirm Device Removal small
    window comes up, I click OK a small hour glass appears and then nothing
    happens. After a good 5 minutes the top of the small window heading says
    "CONFIRM DEVICE REMOVAL (NOT RESPONDING).

    I'd appreciate help on what to do next.

    I am running on Windows XP pro.

    TIA

    With pcs,the USB controllers would be a MB issue,try downloading the
    chipset installation utility for youre MB chipset,get this from the mfg
    (intel,
    amd,etc).If the problem still exist,in device mgr,expand the hardware tree
    for the problem device,R.click,properties,update driver,choose advanced
    option,chk the box "dont search i'll choose",in new window,uncheck the
    box "show compatable hardware",in list select new driver.Also,plugging
    in to another USB port may get other options.
