...just looking for clues...

Plenty of Windows7 Roll Eyes users are having difficulty using their USB drives. Microsoft has no clue as to how to remedy this. Any one here had the problem and found a solution?

Haven't heard of this, but I've been using windows 7 64 bit with two seperate drives, an ntfs formatted one and a fat32 one of two seperate brands. And an external hd, which should be the same thing.

Yo Marc!
Yes, many Windows7 users work with their USB peripherals completely functional. Others cannot recognise the drive, or cannot format it, and in extreme cases the drive is rendered useless until re-formatted on another computer.

Yo Kara,
That's right. Users with an nVIDEA chipset are more likely to experience the USB problem, and it appears to have been an issue with Vista also, with slightly different symptoms.

My friend with a new Asus laptop is very concerned, because he bought it for music production (Ableton Live) and there is no reliable way to get audio files in and out of the computer... Shocked

Hi All,

Just for your information, a hotfix has been released for this issue and Mark has post a new sticky thread for it.

Therefore, let's continue the discussion there. Meanwhile, this thread will be locked.
