    You didn't in indicate whether you just bought this or if it failed after some use. Neither did you indicate your operating system.

    If using anything newer than Win98, you don't need a driver installed BUT you should have the latest Service Pack installed.

    If XP, try running an sfc /scannow to refresh the Windows files.

    You can also try uninstalling ALL USB ports in Device Manager and rebooting to have them re-detected 'fresh'.
