    Are you talking about plugin usb drives? See if you can see them by going to:

    Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management.

    i have a card reader that will read 4 to 6 types of cards and it has 5 usb ports as well
    and all of them used to be there but now they are gone...fyi this is a multi boot computer
    with 3 OS 's installed if i choose a different OS they are all there...all OS 's are windows 7.
    everythig is ok in the device manager...and no they are not in disk management .so i am a
    little bit perplexed and the back of my head is starting to get bald.....
