Solved Windows 7 DOESN'T recognize usb

Post by gdtjr on Fri 16 Jan 2009, 7:32 am

Windows 7 DOESN'T recognize usb or atleast for me after 3 or 4 fresh clean installs and I've updated everything each time. I just can't figure why its doing this but for the fact that at times it does recognize usb's but doesn't show the folders or anything in the usb.

I have looked in the device manager and it shows that a MASS STORAGE CONTROLLER doesn't have the drivers and also serval USB MASS STORAGE DEVICES doesn't have any drivers.


I have a Toshiba A135-S4527 laptop that came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium and I did away with Vista for the fact that it was just too slow even with all the 'eye candy' gadgets off.

I don't use 7, but I want to, so I want to know this answer too.
I expect Doctor/Digital will drop by to answer since they have experienced 7.

Sooooo, I'm wondering by "DOESN'T recognize" that it means it doesn't read fat32/ntfs

Correctly giving... I don't know... for the fact that my usb's are fat32 or fat then it would have to be either it only recognizes NTFS.

UPDATE


Seems like every time after I restart my laptop it recognizes any USB key. If and when I restart then plug it in upon restart.

Any OEM computers that has a certain operating system pre-installed is originally designed to use that operating system for smooth operation.

This is because the drivers are designed with Vista in mind. When you switch operating systems, the chipset and BIOS are incompatible (especially for OEM PCs) and wont recognize all of the harware or software drivers on the computer.

Which is why I always assemble my own computers, instead of buying them off the selves. All my hardware and devices works a charm on Windows 7.

I tried looking around for your driver... unfortunately no luck. Toshiba doesn't even seem to have a drivers download page! :oops:
