Default Removable Disk function failure on XP

My work PC using XP (latest release with all updates) is now not recognizing removable disks, i.e. cameras and mp3 players.
They connect satisfactorily, and logo at bottom right corner is visible, but drive is not shown in My Computer, and therefore not accessible.
I’ve searched this forum, and have noted many suggested conflicts, notably Real Player, which I do not have.
Add New Hardware in CP is successful in finding the device, but has no affect.
I have installed a USB fix for an old Casio camera “WinSFX32 Self Extractor for Win32” – I’ve heard these can create conflicts!

Any suggestions?
AMD Phenom II X4 965, Mobo: Biostar A880G+ c/w onboard Graphics & Sound, RAM: 8Gb DDR2, HDDs 2+2+4Tb, Monitor 24"
Using: Win10 64bit with Trend Micro TMS
