I have 4 usb sockets on rear and two front. I've never used these up to last week. I plugged in an image card reader which is supposed to get power from the usb port. the led indicator light on the reader didn't light up. I tried all 6 slots... nothing! The card reader is working, it works in a friends pc. In Device Manager all usb properties seem ok and 'device working ok' reports are evident. Could these slots be dead or what?
The real Problem:
I have a new digital camera and would like to connect it to a front slot.... nothing happens when I do this. I've installed the drivers that came with the camera... the camera doesn't show up in My Computer nor is it listed in the scanner/camera list in Control Panel.... I've not a clue what the hell is happening here so if somebody could point me in the right direction I will be ecstatic!
Apologies if I'm in the wrong area.... I looked for cameras under Hardware.... not there.
Thnx in advance
