I have Windows7 64 bit running on a DIY PC. Every year, about January or February, I refresh my machine with a new install of Windows. This year, I did it early (about two weeks ago) because I relocated my office.
I have a Thermaltake Blacx external HD doc connected via USB. On my previous setup, I could drop a hard drive in this doc, power it up, and the drive would load as a removable storage device. Now, however, on the new load of Windows (same OS I was running before I might add), Windows says "USB Device Not Recognized" when I turn on the box. I've tried various HDs and they all do the same thing. I plugged one of those HDs internally and Windows picked up on it and everything was fine.
Same happens when I plug in my cell phone, an EVO 4G, which also didn't give me any problems before.
The best I could come up with during research was to unplug the PC and reboot. Didn't work.
I just can't figure this one out. Have any of you had this issue?
