This happens with all usb flash drive or hard drives.  USB mouse works just fine and new ones do also.  The flash drives and hard drives work on other pc's just fine.

I tried a system restore and no help

Try going into the device manager and removing all the usb hubs and controllers. Do a restart, and plug the device into the machine after the usb ports have reinstalled
