Windows 7: USB Issues

USB Issues


So, it only took a week to finally get Windows 7 installed and now, the majority of my USB devices are inaccessible?? what??

The problem is, they get power and device manager reports they are working but ... they're not, they can't be accessed; for example; a USB stick that works on my laptop (running 7068) will not run on my RC1 PC.

I'm guessing this is a driver issue because they worked fine in Vista, one thing I have noticed though, whenever it comes to install related to USB e.g. My G15 Keyboard drivers, it takes forever (around 20-30 mins).

There is however 1 USB device connected that works and that is my keyboard, which is what I don't understand, why would Windows allow that device but no other?

Any ideas?
