    I am running Win 7 Ultimate with an Asus P5E mb. The system recognizes all usb devices plugged in during boot up but will not recognize new devices which are plugged in after boot up. I have the latest bios update for this mb. This is really frustrating as I can not plug in usb devices without having to reboot.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

    I have seen that happen with external hard drives, but not other type devices. Have you checked your bios settings for USB devices to see if there is an option you might change, like allowing Legacy devices or not?

    Does it make any difference as to which port the devices are plugged into?

    Have you tried each device without others already plugged in?
