    USB ports don't recognize my usb devices

    Click image for larger version

    Whenever I try to connect my flash drive, phone or digi cams. It can't detect anything
    then I saw this in device manager, is this the culprit?
    Please give me solutions.. I can't do my project without transferring files

    Windows 8 Pro

    With none of the items giving issues connected to the USB ports , what happens if you right click and uninstall that 'unknown device' in the Device manager and re-boot your PC...does it re-appear and windows then tries to install a device driver for it?
