I would change USB ports and if that doesnt work make sure the drivers downloaded and were installed

What he said, some USB ports are not used to fully read everything. If you look your laptop should have about 3 USB ports. Drivers are also really important, you may have to re-download the drivers if they don't work the first time.

Call SCT support and they can fix the issue. Let them take control of your pc/laptop and they will install the missing USB app.

Windows 8 SUCKS! being a guinea pig for a company who puts out a half ass product instead of spending proper time and money on R&D and expects its customers to do their job for them for free.

Windows 8 is just like the Vista, Its so bad that talks about by the time 8.2 is released "April 2015" it will be scrapped and the new windows OS will be out, do yourself a favor Fdisk that laptop and load of Windows 7.
