My usb port do not work. It did not recognize any devise.


hello
Use Device Manager to disable and re-enable all the USB controllers. This lets the controllers recover the USB port from its unresponsive condition. The USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, try the steps in the "Workaround" section.
To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps: Click Start, and then click Run.
Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
Note You might have to scroll down the list to find this item. Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it. Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers. Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.
hope this helps

Will not work in usb 2.0 but will work in usb 1.0


Connect the Player to the USB 2.0 port on the Comptuer then open the Device Manager and expand the "universal serial bus controllers" category.
Under the serial bus controller category, check if there is any exclamation mark visible. If there is any then right click on it and select Uninstall. Restart the Computer after uninstalling the device with exclamation mark. Restarting the Computer with the player connected will make the Computer recognize the connected player.

Furthermore, check whether there is any universal serial host controllers prefixed with "Enhanced".

If there is no Enhanced universal serial host controller listed under the "serial bus controller" category then it's required to install the USB 2.0 driver.

In this case, uninstall all the devices listed under the universal serial controllers category then restart the Computer to reload them automatically.
