VB 4.1.18 doesn't show USB devices in Windows Explorer

Although VB 4.1.18 shows attached Compact Flash card reader and a Western Digital HDD, neither can be seen in Windows Explorer.

Using Windows 7 64-bit with all updates applied, all default settings apart from auto update, which was set to download drivers on demand but now downloads automatically. Installed in Mac OS 10.7.4. on a Mac Pro tower.

Same operating system installed under Bootcamp has no problems mounting and giving access to USB devices in Windows Explorer.
