Assuming you have tried other usb ports and had no change,remove the usb connection, then go back into device manager and select the usb controller, right click and select delete as this will erase any input driver the usb port recognises. Restart the pc and then the controller should be reinstalled automatically as it sounds as though the controller has become corrupt for some reason. Go back into device manager and check there are no exclamation marks, reconnect the drive and see if it's recognised.

SOURCE: Hard drive isn't recognized
Great advice tech8 !!! That worked for me. I was frustrated with this problem for the last month. It looks like my chief problem was that the drive letter previously being used for this HDD was assigned to a different network path. It looks like it didn't automatically give a new drive letter. Your solution worked great!

SOURCE: front usb connections
front usb jumpers on the board are usually a small cluster of 9 pins, usually found down the bottom of the motherboard, and labeled fusb, or USB_H, or something similar. the front usb connectors have 2 sets of wires (8 in total) and are black, green, white and red. if the front connector is one whole plug, just plug it onto the header the right way and it should go.. if the pins are all individual.. you will need to push them down one by one in the right order.. easiest wat to do it is plug both the black ones on the first 2 pins after the single one, then the 2 greens side by side, then the whites, and finally the reds on the very end.
