G'day, after googling the problem, I still haven't resolved the issue. This isn't the problem where they don't just show up in the disk manager and you have to change the letter etc, it doesn't show up in the DM at all, or My Computer obviuosly. However, it will come up in Everest with the info, size, partition etc. I can plug in my bluetooth dongle, mouse/keyboard, external hard drive blah blah, and they will work without a hiccup, just not USB flash drives, and I've tried 4+ different ones in all different ports. I've re-installed the USB drives in safe mode and I'm still stumped with the same problem. Attatched is what comes up when a 1gig Lexar USB stick is in the USB port.
Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
