Default usb not working

None of my usb drives work with anything with removable storage. its starting to drive me nuts. the drivers are installed for whatever i try to plug in. windows recgonzies it but it never shows up in my computer. The usp ports work fine for mice, keyboards,printers, ect. are their drivers i need to install for the usb ports?

Windows xp already contains and should load any usb storage device drivers, however you can double check with the manufacturer. Did you check in disk management to see if it shows up there? type start>run>diskmgmt.msc and see if it's in there or needs to be formatted.
