    USB Not Recognised

    Morning,

    I have a new Fujitsu M290 which for some reason has messed up its USB settings and won't recognise any USB hard drives installed.

    I have done the old, remove all USB devices from the hardware manager and rebooted but it still doesn't work. Strangly after doing this the little MS USB Bluetooth device has shown lots of unknown devices listed with a couple of crosses on which weren't there before.

    I have tried the USB in another PC of the same model and its fine.

    Is this a reinstall do you think?

    Its a Intel chipset which won't reinstall.. when I run the installer it doesn't go into the installer and what I have read says you can't uninstall these.

    I've removed all the USB devices also after rebooting also. The driver that is used on the working pc lives on the non workign one also..

    bit weird.

    Anyone seen this before? Usually uninstalling the USB works for me but this one is a bugger.... oh and its got the latest BIOS

    Did it extract to a folder, should have inf files you can right click (unless you've tried this [not the installer]?).

    Check the registry HKLM\System\MountedDevices
    Delete all the \??\Volumexxxx entries and reboot.
    Does it start to work again?

    Hello, connect the USB drive and look in disk management, diskmgmt.msc then try and change it's auto assigned letter.
