Windows 7: cloned to SSD, now my laptop does not see USB

cloned to SSD, now my laptop does not see USB

i copied the old hard drive from a lenovo laptop onto a samsung 830 SSD

everything works great except it won't recognize USB when i plug something in (in this case, a USB backup drive).

it's strange because i hear that sound like it's in, and the light comes on the USB device, but "my computer" does not show the USB and the backup software does not show the USB

what i've done so far is go to device manager and check everything under USB, they all say they are working properly.

my knowledge level after the above = 0

I have a similar problem with a sansa mp3 player that was damaged after it got wet in a rain. It makes the sound when I plug it in but nothing appears in "my computer".
