  1. you mean like flash drives?

    if it's a desktop it might be it's usb ports.

    One time my case's usb ports got loose on the mobo and I could only use the ports built in with my motherboard untill I fixed it.

    If not you might have to reinstall windows
  2. Try other USB ports and see if you run into the same problem.

    The older USB ports were fragile and known to break.
