I have a late 2011 iMac which I installed windows 7 onto. I recently had to reinstall windows and start from scratch but after doing this I'm unable to see any of my USB sticks in 'My Computer'. I have looked in the device manager and tried to use 'cmd' to assign these drives new letters but I'm unable to. Is anyone else having / had these problems and is ther a solution please,

 

Thanks a lot.

    Did you install the Windows drivers from the OSX DVD?

    Use the Windows installer disc to do a Repair Installation.

    Then I am unable to offer any more suggestions, I would also be concerned that a repair install is not available, it should be. Try your questions in a Microsoft forum in addition to here.

    Microsoft Fix-it center under Windows icon has possible fix for your USB problem. Double click the Pic to see detail. You can try a few others that might look to be related.

    Failing this, you could try reinstalling your Bootcamp 3.?, 4.?.  I do not mean reinstalling Windows; that would be, I guess, the last resort.
