USB ports may not work for some devices until we install the driver for the device. And many USB 2.0 hard disks don't work in USB 1.1 ports.
Since there is nothing to work with in your post, try http://www.usbman.com
Basically what is happening is that my USB ports are not working. It seems to work for the printer but if I was to put anything else it it it fails to work. Could you please help me? I really need it to start working soon!
