Windows 7 Flash drive/USB problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • I continually have problems with connecting anything to my computer via the USB ports.  Flash drives are particularly bad, for example if I load Excel from the flash drive, make some changes and then try and save the work back to the flash drive inevitably it won't respond and I have to save it to the hard drive.  Other items include my phone, camera and Kindle.  Sometimes they work perfectly and sometimes not at all.  It doesn't matter which USB port I use.  Any ideas what's causing this please?  Everything I use is certified suitable for Windows 7.
