my usb ports are not working at all, i have upgraded my motherboard drivers,IWILL XA100,and the usb is ENabled in the bios. I am running windows98,that is an upgrade from windows95,so it is NOT 98SE,i have tried uninstalling,and installing the device 4-5 times and when i connect the usb cable to the computer and open the device it says it is not connected. the device manager is showing both files   ali pci to usb open host controller&usb root hub, and both are working correctly,it says! my kids and i use this computer to play games and i would like to use my digital camera on it also ,but no devices work,they all say not connected, I know that the devices work because they work fine on my other computer. I know that this is an older machine but every thing else seems to work very good eccept for this usb issue. thanks Greg.

In Win98, you need to install specific USB drivers for each device, or it will not be recognized.  Use the drivers that came with the devices.  Not exactly plug and play.
