Question about Computers & Internet
Try installing this driver: http://www.usb-drivers.com/drivers/244/244086.htm
Then this driver: http://download.microsoft.com/download/d/5/d/d5dc65b3-fda4-454f-813d-ae4ca2638c87/WindowsXP-KB822603-x86-ENU.exe
If that doesn't work, try installing the following driver from Dell's website: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=85297
You'll find more drivers located here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid and here: http://www.usb-drivers.com/companies/294.htm
You may also need to check usb settings in BIOS (use F2 on boot)
If you're having this problem only with a thumbdrive, try:
1. right-click My Computer, select Manage
2. Expand Storage
3. Expand Disk Management
4. in the gray area on the lower right side you should see yourthumbdrive listed. Right-click on it and select Change Drive Letter andPaths.
5. Hit the Change button
6. Use the drop menu and change your thumbdrive's drive letter to a different one.
You may need to set View to Show Hidden Devices for the above.

A long way around it you might try finding a quick linux livecd and boot your system from that and see if the linux will recognize and use your usb ports. this test will let you know wether your usb ports are broken, or possibly your os installation has some glitch and is refusing to use your ports.
the other way around it is just saying that the usb doesn't work
another option is checking to see if in the bios usb is turned on or off which can happen sometimes.
and there is also the obvious uninstall the hardware and download the usb driver from the website and reinstall the hardware directing it to the driver you downloaded and see if that works..
there are a few options for you anyways :D
