    Is it showing up in Device Manager correctly or is there a yellow (!) showing up on ANYTHING?

    Also, is there anything showing under "Other Devices"? perhaps some form of "Mass Storage Controller"?

    Also, what happens if you boot into "Safe Mode"? does it work correctly there?

    If it does infact show up then try deleting it the reboot windows to see after it reinstalls it if it cures.
