Hey guys,

I have a PC here at the moment which is able to read some USB devices, but not others. I have tried updating the appropriate driver/s, but this had produced no results. It seems that the PC can detect the USB keyboard, mouse and camera connection (even enough to be able to view and download photos off said camera), but USB flash drives and printers cannot be detected.

Do you have any idea what might be causing this issue and, more to the point, what can be done to resolve it?
