    Since you've posted this in the forum for comments and suggestions for the Tech Support Guy website, I am moving this thread to the proper forum where you will be more likely to have it seen and responded to by those who may be able to help you.

    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.
