Windows 7: Windows 7 SP1 messed up 2 USB drives

Windows 7 SP1 messed up 2 USB drives

Since installing Windows 7 SP1 two of six of my internal USB 2.0 drives are messed up. When I plug a thumb drive into either of the two, I get a pop-up that says the device would work faster if plugged into a high speed USB drive. Well, they are and I had no problem prior to installing SP1. The driver versions are the same on all of them.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Seeing as SP1 is still in RC beta. I would try uninstalling it and see what happens.

How to uninstall Windows 7 SP1 RC

If you installed a Leaked Version (which I would never recommend), then you may have to reload windows.

Thanks Tepid. Since I've done a disc cleanup, I'll have to do a restore so hopefully it will correct the problem. It should because I didn't have that problem before SP1. I'll post if all is taken care of or not.

Restore all done and the two USB drives are now working as they should.

Thanks again Tepid for your sage advice.

Please start a new thread as this one has been resolved and your issue is different.

This is what we call Thread Hi-Jacking. Please, try not to do that.
