My USB will not recognize any of my USB flash drives , I have a PNY 8gb, a sandisk 2GB, and others none are seen any longer, the problem arose about a week ago, on a HP Media Center PC with win7.
If I plug in my Bluetooth adapter it works fine, like wise my usb webcam, only the mass storage devices seem to be affected and I have no idea why.
I read where win7 was having problems with this and when I went to MS website I found "a fix" but that did not work.
When I plug in the usb device you hear a sound, but if I go to "My Computer the drive is not found, on occasion when I plug in the device it pops up installing drivers , but that always fails.
This hold true for both front and read usb slots.
Any ideas?

BTW all the usb flash drives work in another computer just not this one

Have you check your BIOS settings for any Legacy device enabling, Plug and play or USB 1.0/USB 2.0? Do you have any system scanners that may be intrusive on any connecting devices? What protection softwares and computer model is it?
