Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Used have XP before I upgraded to Vista. It was all fine for about 2
months until one day i wen to my computer and inserted my usb. The usb
light flashes for a sec then it gone. Like there is no power. My
computer doesn't detect a single thing. Nothing about anything
malfunctioning or anything. I right clicked on My Computer and went to
"manage". I Selected the Device Manager option and at the bottom of the
list on the right I found Universal Serial Bus Controllers. I Checked
to see if the port is listed and if it has an error. There was no
yellow question mark or exclamation point. There is nothing like that
my computer see's that everything is working and updated.Even my front
panel usb's aren't working. There doing the same thing as the back
ones, which are intergrated to the motherboard. I thought that the back
and front usb's didn't have anything to do which each other besides
connecting to the motherboards chipset. Well, I had 2 of the same
motherboards. I was using one of them in my computer and the usb ports
were working fine. I accidentally fried that motherboard and had to
switch to using my other motherboard in the same computer but the one
that wasn't fried had that usb problem. So im guessing something on my
mother is fried or something. I even tried restarting and that didn't help. Really CONFUSED. Not sure what to

Here is another option: you can see if your computer has even recognized the device by going into the computer management again, accept this time check the "disk management" instead of device manager. You should see your hard drive listed and hopefully your flash drive is there as well. If it is try right clicking on the drive and select "change drive letter..."select something like "x" and see if that helps it to appear.
I know you may not want to hear this, but If this doesn't work you may need to resort to adding a PCI card with some new ports on it.
