hi all, i have a desktop with the above mobo, however believe the issue of not recognising the usb flash drive is actually windows o/s (7). i have come accross this before but cant find the answer this time on the web..

It was a registry key deletion which would re-create after a re-boot.

the usb flash drive is fine, but wont be recognised by the offending pc....

Right mouse on the entry on the left and select permissions, then take ownership of it. Then tick full control

Does it show a letter in computer ? (http://forums.pcworld.com/index.php?/topic/70098-windows-7-not-recognizing-flash-drive/)

Speedy, the system wont allocate a drive letter until the device is recognised with driver and system resources....

aHH, sorted, deleted all USB controllers and hubs, rebooted, then the driver update worked....holy cow batman, ya wouldnt want to charge time on that!...
