usb ports recognized but will not function

Post by JimR44 on Mon Oct 04, 2010 2:54 pm

I have a Dell Optiplex 320, Pentium D, w/ WinXP. My usb drives (front & back) are not working. They seem to detect various storage devices ("device is ready for use"), but will not display the drive in Windows explorer (My Computer).
My usb mouse is still functioning properly. Restarting does not help. Any "quick" fixes out there?
