When I plug in my iPod/camera/etc. into my USB port, a popup comes up with 'One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message.' In the Device Manager it shows up as 'Unknown Device'. Troubleshooting didn't work, nor did uninstalling it. My anti-virus program also shows no viruses or anything.

So what do I do? Any suggestions? I'd appreciate it! Thank you!

In addition to what killerx said at some point you could have stop an installation of the drivers for one of your devices and that could cause problems make sure your usb ports have autoplay enabled and often times that helps to solve this kind of thing
