I tried 3 different usb flash drives that all work good on another pc but on mine they don't show, even in disk managment there's no sign of the flash drive

When I connect sd cards or mobiles everything is ok

Pc: Acer aspire V3-5716

how I solve this?

Have a look in device manager to see if there are any exclamation marks against the USB devices, as it looks like a driver problem

There's no exclamation marks

Stay in device manager

plug in a drive

in the Action tab select scan for new hardware and see what happens.

In action tab there is scan for hardware changes I clicked and it showed me a list of devices that I can install and there's 1 called "usb attached scsi(uas) mass storage" I should install that 1?
