    Trying to locate my answer with google search ... thought maybe the forum here could direct me quicker to the results I need .. The front of panel of my Motherboard N68C-GS FX .. has two usb 2.0 drives i nfront and 4 in the rear .. the front left drive usb port does not get seen or recognised in explorer ... but is seen when I go thru disc management instead ... If a drive that is supported with USB cable i nthe rear is een but whne connected to the front it does not ..

    must be something turned off ......
