I so this problem more than ones on old main bard's using front usb or hub. What rig you got mate? If it an old one, try powered hub.

im using a Sahara laptop.Any flash drive is not recognized unless it's connected when booting up.The flash drive works fine on other pc's.I get a pop up stating flash drive is not recognized.....etc.The flash drive light comes on when connected though.

Well that didnt help much mate :) , but like i said before...your USB is likely low on juice...try power USB HUB. Good chance it will work...How old your laptop?
