    I'm having an issue where if my USB devices are plugged in when i start my computer they are fine. but if i try to plug in a thumbdrive after it's already been turned on it won't recognize it. nothing.

    Just Ran the SFC /scannow and i don't know what to make of it. any help would be appreciated. it is attach
    The Attached file has the SFC details. not sure what to make of it.

    Running
    Windows 8.1 x64
    Gygabyte: z68a-d3h-b3
    (will attach more if needed.)
