USB problems

Can anyone tell me why I can not see my usb devices ie. hard drive and compact flash card reader in the "My Computer" folder. Both devices are connected and reported to be working by Windows device manager. The problem appears to be a software one which enables "My Computer" to see the usb devices.

Does this matter?

i.e are they actually working?

If not, then you are probably right in that it will be software caused

In most cases, this is due to incorrect installation, most usually due to the device being connected to the computer and turned on before the software has been installed

In such a case the software needs to be uninstalled and completely removed and the devices "removed" and then the installation done again, following the instructions

Check that USB is enabled in the BIOS
