Even though this thread is old now...

I had the same problem and searching on google has led me to here multiple times and all the solutions that worked for other people unfortunately did not work for me. :/
If you are in the same situation perhaps this way might help you.

I have sony viao vgn-nr430e. My problem was the driver for "Mass storage controller" was not installed after i upgraded. But you can find the driver here -

(Texas instrument seems to have taken it out from their site or something, but luckily someone uploaded it to 4shared)

After that you go to
control panel > device manager> right click on mass storage device> update the driver> select browse folder> select the folder containing the file you just downloaded.

Hopefully this works.
