windows tries to format every usb drive and some devices dont connect

Using the computer in my signature when I plug in any USB drive it says it needs to be formatted. Additionally, my sony handycam will no longer be detected and my iPhone and iPad also take forever to be detected if they detect at all.

I ran sfc /scannow and it didnt seem to do anything. I also searched and came up with nothing to help.

Hi there
looks like the USB driver has got hosed up -- try in the device manager uninstalling it and re-install again (or simply boot after uninstalling and let Windows "Find new hardware" and install it automatically).

(ensure your usb stick is fine in another computer also --these can and do go defective sometimes).

cheers

Hey Jimbo thanks for the quick reply. Here is a screenshot of my device manager. Which one should I uninstall? All of them?

Hi there
I'd start with the USB composite device and the USB mass storage device. also the 3 generic hub ones.
Disconnect any usb devices on the system first.

then if that doesn't cure the problem uninstall the ICH10 drivers -- but only do that as a last resort because these might have to be added again manually.

I wonder what the USB Virtualization driver is? Never seen that before on any system.

I agree with jimbo's advice, but if even removing the ICH10 drivers doesn't solve the problem, I'd try removing the virtualization driver as a last resort.

I'm only guessing but I have the USB Virtualization driver and the only place I can think it came from would be Microsofts Virtual PC when I attached a USB drive to the Virtual PC and to strengthen that thought the driver details list the file vpcusb.sys
