Please help, I'm pulling out my hair here!

None of my usb drives are showing in My Computer. None of my drives are showing in Disk Management at all! (not even my internal hard drives)
I've tried my external HD, Flash drive, ipod, & my digital camera. Windows plays the normal sound when I connect them but nothing happens. None show up in my computer. The ipod charges as normal and I can print via usb.

The only things listed in My Computer are my 2 internal HDs C: & D: and my DVD drive H:

Thanks for any help.

Try to uninstall your USB hub root from device mamager and restart the computer, after reboot the computer automatically detect the USB and install it.
then try once again to plug any USB drive.
