Hi,

When you say you can't access to any of your USB's, you mean your USB Flash Drives?

yes...if i plug any devices into my PC's usb connections, nautilus isn't
detecting any new hardware/device.

Are you able to mount your USB drive?
For mounting try:
sudo mkdir /mnt/yourdir
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/yourdir
cd /mnt/yourdir
ls

If this does not work, try posting output of "mount" command and "dmesg" command as well.
Good luck.

Can you help with this problem?
