Please help!! I'm pulling out my hair!
Drives I connect via usb will not show up in My Computer anymore. I've tried my external HD, Flash drives, my ipod, and my digital camera. When I plug something in, Win XP plays the sound like normal but nothing happens. And the ipod charges
like normal. I checked in Disk Management and none of my internal HDs are even listed! My Computer still shows my 2 internal HDs C: & D: my Floppy A: and my dvd drive H:

Thanks for any help

sounds like the USB controller died, try a external card, as for the management tools, in the Computer Management WIndow look under the the Action Tab, next to the Up One Level folder icon, there is a show/hide console box, see if clicking it helps

Try uninstalling all the usb root hubs in the device manager. Then restart the pc. It will reinstall all of them and then should recognize the hardware attached to them.
