    Neither usb key, camera card, ipod or creative zen and external storage devices working.
    Device shows up on MY Computer but when you try to access it a message asking to format disk is displayed.
    If you try to format disk a message is displayed saying cannot format disk.
    I have tried deleting devices and reinstalling drivers and tried to repair registry but noyhing works.
    Devices will work on another machine.
    I have a Dell Dimension about 7 years old which is otherwise working just fine.
    Other devices like printer and wirless keyboard are fine
