Ok, in W7 follow these steps to see of this works.

1) Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the open box, and then click OK.
2) Click the Hardware tab.
3) Click the Device Manager button.
4) Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5) Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
6) Restart the computer, and then reinstall the USB controllers.
7) Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.

your hardware manager will/should recognize any USB devices and install a driver for them.
