Asus G50vt-x5 help please..

Hey, I just upgraded my laptop from vista to windows 7 ultimate.. and I am having a few problems that maybe some of you could help me with? =3...
Well first off it doesnt recognize my flash drive.. It shows up in the "Device Manager" but it doesnt in "My Computer".. Could I be missing a driver or something?... Also It wont read disks in "My Computer" Either?.. Like wtf I thought this was supposed to be better than Vista.. but so far it just a **** load of problems... hopefully someone could help me.. or point me in the direction of someone who can.. thanks

You probably need to update your drivers. Look for chipset drivers first.

Provide your specs and we might be able to find the drivers for you.

If you need a program to help you fill in your specs, either use the one in accessories/system tools or install the one from my signature.
