Just curious:

Have any of you encountered a PC, laptop or desktop, that required drivers beyond those installed with Windows, to provide access (in Windows) to a USB drive?

Yes. For example, in order to add more USB 3.0 ports to my tower motherboard (4 years old), I have a USB PCI card installed that requires drivers that are not supplied by Microsoft.

Also, remember that the OP is using Win7, which often did not have usable native drivers (especially for Lenovo devices). I have an old ThinkPad T61p that I have updated to run Win10, and some of its old hardware bits just don't have drivers that work with Win10. (If you're curious - max memory and a SATA SSD make it barely usable with Win10.)
