Removable media (USB) issue

Hey guys, long time no see.

I'm having this annoying thingy with all the USBs I stick into my PC. Rather I stick it on the front, or back, or even into the keyboard slot, it does not want to open it! INSANE!

It does show in "Universal Serial BUS Controllers" and I tried to uninstall it, but after reboot and fresh USB Mass storage device install...nothing. Still the same..

When I click "open folder to view files", a blank explorer window pop-ups, loading for a while and then says it's empty. When I close it, in "My computer" there is no media recognized.

Then I unplug the USB, plug it back without firstly clicking "open folder to view files", it does show as recognized media in "my computer"

Hope I added enough infos, please help me out here I'm desperate!! Thanks!!

Hi,

You can try this, it might help:

Try Deleting the “Upper filters” from the following key and restart the computer to check functionality
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}

*Be cautious while deleting the Upper Filters.

Hi! Thanks for your reply.

Deleting upper filters didn't helped. Now, my Audio service is not running?

It might be a driver problem, if none of your hardware or USB hub had a defect...

I usually encounter this problem when i was using windows xp and during experimentation of running USB devices in windows 98.

You might try what i usually do, uninstall the driver using device manager and reinstall the driver back again. But be sure to have a ready installers for your drivers.

You have not mention that you reinstall your system, so I suspect that your problem is your driver.

Hope this will help...

When did this problem started? I mean this did not happened when your PC was new, right?
