Click on Start>right Click on My Computer, click on Properties. Click on the Hardware tab
Click the Device Manager button.
Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers section
Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.

Restart the computer and allow the computer to reinstall the USB controllers

Plug in the removable USB storage device
