    Hey guys i bulit my own pc, its all finished but my USB ports wont pick anything up, (MP3 player, data pen, camcorder) everything. The only thing i can do to get them to work is plug in my devices and restart the machine, i was just woundering if anyone else has ever had this problem as it gets annoying after a while
    cheers guys

    Are you sure you've installed your USB 2.0 drivers? And are you sure the USB parts are connected firmly?

    Go into Device Manager, and under Universal Serial Bus Controllers, see if there is a listing with Enhanced Host Controller. If there is none, then your drivers are either not loaded, or you have the incorrect drivers loaded.

    Have you updated the firmware for your motherboard? Do you have the latest Intel updates installed?

    I would suggest there are only 3 possibilities.

    1. The wiring from the USB port to the motherboard is wrong somewhere. Most modern motherboards won't let you put the wrong cable on the wrong terminal, however, some cases don't have an all in one connector, but single wires - I would check that it is wired properly.

    2. You haven't loaded the Motherboard Driver disk and all its drivers.

    3. The motherboard is knackered or a USB hub, I cannot believe all of the hubs are damaged though.

    Oh yes one more could be that the USB is disabled in the bios.
