USB 2.0 drives not recognized since the latest Windows updates

I tried 4 different USB 2.0 on 4 different and no computers drives won't recognize readers for the latest Automatic updates.

1 PC with Win 7 64-bit all service packs

2 computer laptop w / Win 7 32 bit all service packs

3 laptop w / Win 7 64-bit all service packs

4 desktop w / Win XP Pro 32 bit all service packs

All versions are professional, all devices are fully patched and recognise the mouse USB, HD', other USB devices.

3 of the flash drives are Sandisk Ultra USB 16 GB sticks, one is nine of its packaging.

1 is a 8 GB generic to Symantec given as a promo, but it is brand new.

All these discs worked in these devices before the last major thrust of update.

There is no splat / exclamations in the Device Manager.

If all the USB controllers are removed and reinstalled, it does not address the issue.

Difficulty of MS it detects no problem.

USB 1.0 drives work!

None of these devices are equipped with USB 3.0 ports


Hi Laurence,.

Please keep us updated on the status of the issue and apologize for the lack of communication.

As you mentioned that this problem occurred after installing Windows updates, then I would suggest you to restore your computer to a restore point that was created before the date and time when you started to notice the problem.

To do this, please follow the steps from the following link:

Restore system files and settings

Note: When you use the system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

After restoring the system, try to manually install the Windows updates (try to install one by one) to identify what update caused this problem.

To do this, please follow the steps from the following link:

Install Windows updates in Windows 7

Hope this information helps.

Please reply with the results, in order to help you solve the problem.

Thank you

    Since the latest Windows Updates (13 sep 2012) it doesn't work anymore...

    When I turn off the firewall of Windows on the FS01, it works.

    Can I get a SMB = OK on the Multi functional.

    When I turn on the WIndows firewall, I get a SMB = NG on the multifuntional

    I checked the rules and everthing about file and printer sharing is allowed...

    Can someone please think about what to do?
    Because really don't want to go with Windows Firewall disabled.

    The Endpoint Protection 2010 Anti Virus is installed on the FS01, but given that disabling the Windows Firewall works, I don't think that the Anti Virus has nothing to do with it.

    Update: I tried two other servers 2008 R2 (with also the Windows Firewall on) and it works! So there's something wrong with this one server... But as far as I can see, the firewall has all the file and open sharing of printers of things... And when I connect with the Canon Scan on a PC user I can browse places very well.

  • After you have installed the latest Windows updates, my Bluetooth stopped working

    I installed the last set of updates to the window and it caused my Bluetooth to stop working.  Reinstalled drivers from the dell website and it still does not work. Fact a restore point and devices have started working again. Updates were the only changes. No other programs or updates installed.

    Are you set for Important updates only (which is recommended)?  If not, was an updated device driver?  It is best not to let Windows Update process device drivers.

    Is your system error free?

    Event Viewer reports

    1. normally, when an error occurs on your computer looking in Event Viewer should be your starting point to find a solution. More related system errors are recorded and get an exact copy of the relevant report is important. Unfortunately, is not easy to understand reports and most of the users computer need help with their interpretation. I have to say later interpretation.

    2 Event Viewer includes three main newspapers of Windows. Here's the Application, security, and system. For purposes of troubleshooting system is by far the most important.

    3. to access the system log, select Start, Control Panel, administrative tools, Event Viewer, in the list on the left of the window select Windows and the system logs. Place the cursor on the system, right click and select filter current log. Check the front of the error and click OK and see you only reports errors. Click the Date and time column header to sort. You may need to click a second time to see the last report above.

    4. a tip for posting copies of error reports! Run Event Viewer and double-click the error you want to copy. Click the copy button to place a copy in the Clipboard and close Event Viewer. Now start your message and paste it into the body of the message. Make sure that it is the first dough right out of the event viewer.

    5. He cautioned against three types of reports, information, and reports errors. In most situations, it is the error reports that offer the best information but sometimes WARNING reports provide useful clues.

    6. all reports have stamps date and hour and when troubleshooting, it is important to focus on the latest reports. Reports of studies from the point when the computer is started, and then check if a similar report appeared in the previous session. If errors do not repeat investigation as to why they happen is wasted effort.

    7. in the individual reports the most important information is the event ID and Source such as these help when looking for help on the internet. The description is just as important and copy the exact text to use as search criteria greatly helps achieve better results when using Google. Not paraphrase descriptions when other people asking for help.

    I imagine the inconvenience that you are experiencing and will certainly help you in the right direction to solve the problem. However, I would be grateful if you could answer a few questions to refine the question in order to provide you with better assistance.

    3. What is the number of KB of the update, after which the internet disconnects?

    [To view your history of update:]

    [ b. press or click on see your update history.]

    The question could arise if the specific update makes changes in the Windows network properties and the update package has been damaged. Other important reasons include the firewall from the security software, third-party software conflicts etc.

  • USB drive not recognized on the A30-151 in XP

    After a clean install of Windows XP Pro on a Satellite A30 151, a USB device remains in the category 'Other' (after installation of the graphics and audio drivers, modem) for which no driver seems to be available on the drivers CD. At this point, the category "USB" contains four entries, two standard "Universal Host Controllers" and two "OpenHost' controllers, with the default drivers.
    I suspect that the missing device can be a USB 2.0 "PCI controller host improved USB" from another manufacturer, but Toshiba does not offer a driver for XP for it then it should be supported by the OS (?).
    Any suggestions as to what can be and what drivers need?

    It turns out that XP does support USB 2.0 according to the SP1, it seems a pre - SP1 version of XP Pro leads the native Windows drivers is not available. For anyone in a similar situation, it seems as if a) upgrade to SP1 or b) install the hotfix Q312370)

    for the English version should throw a lot of download sites) followed by the autodetection of the native Windows drivers should do the trick. However, the following SP1 problem may come into play

    in this case, the "NEC PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller B1" driver required original can be found by searching for "USB driver" for "Windows 2000" for the Satellite A30 Toshiba driver download page.

  • CD/DVD-ROM not recognized since the installation of Vista, without errors

    Installed Vista and lost CD rom? CD works can be heard during the execution but system will not find CDROM? Deleted upper and filters low but still will not find CD ROM?


    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and

    One of the drives has failed on my RAID 1 configuration, so I bought a non-certified dell, Seagate Barracuda 500 GB drive (other readers were 250 GB).

    I turned off the machine and swapped the failed drive with a new one (cable connections)

    When I boot in Sas (SAS 6 ir) controller, it shows that the disk is missing.

    I turned off the server and changed the cables from the primary to the new disk, to see if it would make a difference. None. Watch again ' driving status: missing.

    Hello director87

    Go to the RAID properties > manage table > manage Hot Spare disks. You should see a list of all drives that detects the controller. Your RAID 1 drives will be listed as primary and secondary. The new drive should not be anything in the area of the 'State of the drive. Use the arrows to select the new disk and keys to assign it as a spare drive + /. After you assign it as a spare drive it should start to rebuild.

    If you don't see the drive in the list, then check the screen of the SAS topology. If you see in the SAS topology then use CTL D to shoot to the top of the additional options. Let me know if it will allow you to do something to the reader in this screen. If you don't see in SAS topology then it does not appear that the controller is able to communicate properly with this player.

    On 19 December 2015 the following has been installed on my computer: 1) 2015 update security-006 version 1.0.  (2) Itunes version 12.3.2. (According to the App Store update page; this one was installed twice).

    Computer has begun to install updates automatically while I was working on a track. I chose to not not to allow the computer to restart and led updates to continue at a later date.  I finished work, off the Mac til the next morning.  When I tried to work, suddenly LPX operates now that it has a weight of 1000 live births by dragging it down.  CPU and HD m remain lit all the way to the top and take a long time to calm down.  Sound level meters don't update in real-time and data audio and midi will be properly synchronized.  I hear a blurry/airy sound on the left stereo channel (it looks like warp any) during audio playback as well. Tried rebooting, shutdown/restart etc... Disk utility says no problem detected.

    Try to set up another admin user account to see if the same problem persists. If back to my Mac is enabled in system preferences, the guest account will not work. The intention is to see if it is specific to an account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.

    Isolate a problem by using a different user account

    If the problem is still there, try to start safe mode using your usual account.  Disconnect all devices except those necessary for the test. Shut down the computer and then put it up after a 10 second wait. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the SHIFT key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear. Startup is considerably slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a check for directory and disables all start-up and connection, among other things. When you restart normally, the initial restart may be slower than normal. If the system is operating normally, there may be 3rd party applications that pose a problem. Try to delete/disable the third-party applications after a reboot using the UN-Installer. For each disable/remove, you need to restart if you do them all at once.
