Storage SEMC Flash Device causing problems.

I have been trying to update my Xperia SP to the most recent update, 12.0.A.2.245 however every time I try and install it using PC Companion or SUS, my computer hangs. I'm currently on Windows XP SP3.

When I have the phone plugged in and try to update the phone using Sony PC Companion, during the Preparing stage, the Found New Hardware pop up appears with 'SEMC Flash Device' on it, and my computer freezes,I am then unable to do anything and the only option is to restart the computer.

I have also tried updating my phone by holding down the volume down button and then connecting the phone to the USB cable through SUS, however the same problem occurs. The little Found New Hardware pop up appears and then my computer freezes.

I'm relatively new with all this, so I don't have a clue as to what's causing the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
