I am currently unable to access flash drives with any of my USB ports. All of the flash drives tested work properly on other computers. The drive will power on and the taskbar shows a new device has been inserted. I can access the flash drive in the disk management of the control panel. However, even when I assign a new drive letter, the drive will not show up in My Computer.

All USB ports will run peripherals such as external hard drives, printers, etc.

I have updated all drivers and system software.

Any help or advice on a course of action would be greatly appreciated

Thanks for the quick replies.

I tried disabling AVG, Ad-Aware, and Tune Up Utilities but still no luck.

I cleaned up all old USB remnants. I deleted 76 items. When I re-inserted the flash drive I got the windows message that the device was installed and ready to use. The drive showed up in USBDeview but I am still unable to access the drive. I tried to use the USBDeview functions but couldn't access the drive
