Default USB mass storage devices - Please help

For some reason all of the sudden, I can not see any of my USB mass storage
devices such as a SanDisk 256mb thumb drive or a typical Zio card reader.
This is running XP Pro on an ASUS A7N8X-e. The USB ports do work as I can
use other things such as a MS Sidewinder game controller and such. Does
anyone have any ideas on what I can or should do. This is very frustrating.
I have been able to use both and more before and not sure what would have
changed recently to have caused this. Thanks very much in advance for any
input or solutions you can provide.

Follow the instructions here, to delete all traces of USB related
stuff from Device Manager, while you are booted in Safe Mode.

On the next reboot, everything should enumerate properly.

I would do the first reboot, without the SanDisk and
Zio connected. Try connecting them after you've verified
that Device Manager picked up the normal entries properly.
