You need to be careful using this app, but it will show you all USB devices that are or have been connected to the system.

You can uninstall/delete usb devices as needed and then plug them back in and see if they get reloaded.

I personally think this app is safer than trying to work with USB issues in Device manager though

View any installed/connected USB device on your system

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for the download file.

Thanks for trying to help! the make of my laptop is HP Pavilion dm4-1065dx entertainment notebook?
Also, I am thinking that this usb drive has something to do with the built in webcam and mic.

Could you please post an attached image of "Device Manager" with "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" opened like the one in the attached picture.

I am wondering if you are having a driver issue.
