if it's a new device than your right, a box should pop up saying that windows is installing the new device. however, if the device has already been used on the computer, than a diolouge box may not pop up. this box won't pop up if "always do the selected actoin" is checked below the list of options.

insert whatever it is your putting in and go to "my computer" you'll see the USB device listed and you can acess it there.

Also, try a different USB port on the computer. The one you are trying might be dead.

what's the OS? if it's not 2000 or above, it would probabby not work all that well with USB.
if it is 2000 or above, is plug and play enabled in services.msc?

Duh! I forgot about that.

If it is Win 95 or 98, you'll have to download the drivers for the device befoer it will be reccognized.
