Default Vista problem ( lol ) USB device not shown in My Computer

I have a client whos running 32 bit windows vista and for some reason when she plug a usb storage device it loads and finds drivers , but doesn't show it in my computer( cannot access any of the files on the disk)

when i look in the device manager there is a yellow "!" on the flash drive

the usb ports are working because we plugged the mouse into them and it works fine

any suggestions on what to try next?
Thanks guys and gals
