I am totally stuck on this one...
Turned on my pc, same as usual
then noticed my external hard drive (modix) and my usb flash disk were not registering.
When I go to update the drivers, I get (Code 28) - something about a function driver etc...
I have Windows Service Pack 4, I have tried to update the usb.inf, in both normal and safe modes.
when it picks up the driver, it fails to complete the installation.
This is driving me nuts. I can't do any work without it.
Anyone had this problem before? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Can you see the drives in "disk management"?

Also does "Device manager" show anything unusual or anythinag at all about your devices?

Are you using any network drives? If you have assigned a conflicting letter to a network drive share, it may render the USB drives "invisible".

 The drive will still show in disk management even if there is a conflicting drive.

 From there you can right click the drive and take the "Change deive letters and paths..." to change to a free drive letter
