Try this fix to see if it repairs your problem, Before Posting. This
solution has worked for
some people with problematic USB and General Devices:

1. Locate the file INFCACHE.1 in C:\Windows\inf

2. Right click on the INFCACHE.1 file, select Properties Security Edit,
and give your account full control.

3. Delete INFCACHE.1 (Or just to be safe, rename it to INFCACHE.1.BAK or
temporarily move to your desktop but you shouldn't need to, windows doesn't
need that file to run, and if it needs to it recreates it).

4. REBOOT

Interesting, Jonathan:
I tried your suggestion, but Vista SP1 has gotten very touchy about
changes.
Got to Windows/INF/INFCACHE.1, made a copy (INFCACHE.Copy-1, the tried to
delete the orig., but after Vista went through its security dialog boxes, it
still wouldn't let me delete the file. I then tried to rename it
INFCACHE.BAK, but the same ritual transpired...Vista said no go again.

I have the same problem, I have a Lenovo T60p and a Lenovo webcam, it was
working O.K. but suddenly after I installed Vista SP1 it didn't work anymore,
so I uninstalled SP1 but, you know what? Now it didn't works neither, I'm
totally lost, can someone give me some clue to solve this issue? I know I'm
not the only one, but is Microsoft doing something to give a solution?

Default "USB Device not Recognized"


I noticed this thread because my gf decided to dump some tea and it got
to the laptop but it works fine (googled). I cleaned it out and all and
when I got back on I got the USB Device not Recognized in slot 4, but I
only got 3 slots and I dont have anything in any of them. The only thing
I have currently connected to my laptop would be my charger, I unplugged
that and still there. I did the INFACHE thingy when changing it
completely to me, do I need to also delete or change the name of it once
I give full power to me. I only gave myself full power and once I
rebooted still messed up (no deletion or file name change). Thanks!

Well guys I don't know how to fix the problem because I got the same
problem but one thing I did figure out is, there is one program out
there that read my external hard drive even when windows vista wouldn't.
I had a 40g HD that just stopped working one day, i tried everything.
Then I stumbled across a program called Power Data Recovery. It actually
read my external HD and copied everything on it to my Computer HD. Go
get this program from a torrent site, it was so cool to get everything
back.
