USB devices not recognised under 2003/2008 server OS

I need to transfer files up to 100GB from my USB backup devices to server . But my devices are not recognized in server OS. I checked and even USB sticks 4GB/8GB are non identified at server OS. These all USB devices work OK under windows Vista and Xp.

Can I fix this?

Check in the device manager and ensure that the usb root hubs do not have a yellow exclamation mark beside them. If they do then try to delete them and re-scan them.

Also in your disk manager check to see that your usb is not trying to mount under a drive letter that has been taken up by a shared mapping.

Hope this helps

check where antivirus(like symantec endpoint) or some security policies blocking USB Mass storage devices...
also check device manger...for driver related errors
