It sounds like you need to renew the driver software for the USB controller. At the moment it sounds like they don't exist as far as the PC is concerned.

I found that as long as you have the room it is better to go to the office supply store and purchase a Belkin USB 2.0 5 port PCI card this will save you time looking for all the drives. I had to do that to my old gateway all the little white plastic peaces fell out.
