Try this:

USB drive or flash problems? How to cleanup and remove old USB storage drivers - TechSpot Forums

That resolved my issue when I had the same problem.

EDIT: Make sure to run this bat file as an admin. Right click the bat file, run as administrator. Code used for the bat is on the website, and verified by me as being the same when editing the bat file.

5. click on Dick Management



Wait for windows to make up its mind. Ignore the top part of the middle pane, look in the bottom half. Do you see anything in there that might be your USB? If you do post a screen shot.
Um....you have a big typo in this...you put D#ck management instead of disk management lol

First, and foremost, a big LOL on the typo! That's one of the funniest typo's I've seen in awhile!!

I skimmed through the thread. I was going to suggest we start at the beginning and follow the sequence of steps that should occur till i saw your last post: USB Mass Storage driver "Access Denied"

I've seen a number of cases with that symptom recently, and in each case so far, has been malware related. Follow the links in post #2 USB not installing, not possible to uninstall code 28

Re-test with a flash drive. It only uses windows drivers so should be easiest to reinstall

It removed a bunch of junk but the flash drive still isn't working

OK. Next thing to check. Right click the device again->Properties. Select the Details tab. Use the pull down menu and look closely to see if entries for
> Class Upper Filters
> Class Lower Filters

There may or may not be items with these names. Take a close look and select each if there.
> Does it display a list of filter names?
> Select each name to see its provider
> Report name and provider of any upper/lower filter present
