I tried updating my drivers
, including the RealTek one, but it does nothing. At best, the H: drive flicker back into My Computer during the update, then disappears right afterward. And then, when I go check the properties of the driver
associated to where the USB key is plugged in, it always shows up as the previous
version of the driver (something back from December 2008); i.e., not the one I just installed/updated (which is from June 2010).
As for the Microsoft Update website, it hasn't been very helpful. I couldn't find any set of USB drivers there. If you happen to have a direct link, though, that would be incredibly helpful.
As for the USB key manufacturer, they don't have any kind of driver to give with their key. At best, they have an Online Recovery tool, but since my computer can't even pick up the key itself to begin with, it's useless.
