Try this, it doesn't sound as it it should work but I tried it and it does.

Turn off the computer and unplug it.
While unplugged hold in the power switch for 10-15 seconds

Now restart and plug in the ipod

My usb ports stopped working . i can;t download music to my ipod. i've tried all 6 of the usb ports with same resukts


Have you tried a different cable? If the cable is custom, sorry you will need to buy a new one to try it.
Plug in another USB device. Is this OK?
Do you use a USB Mouse? Try all the ports.
iPod cables are easily damaged. Ipod docks can be broken by force, twisting or dropping. Insert the iPod into the dock at the correct angle, gently.
Take care to insert the iPod cable straight, right side up. Do not drop the iPod with the cable inserted.
A foreign object like lint, dirt, paper or hair may be stuck in the connector. NEVER clean the connector with a metal object. Use a toothpick, carefully.

Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore and back your computer's date to some time before you installed this update. You will then know if the update actually caused the problem.

I have seen USB ports fried like this, by USB devices. It can render them usesless.

What you can try, is go to the Device Manager, and uninstall the USB ports there. Then go up to Scan for hardware changes. That should automatically reinstall the drivers, in case they got hosed.

If that still does not work, they may be dead. I have seen it where even a device light works, which means there is power on the USB port, but the communications part does not work.

In a desktop PC, you can get an add in PCI card, and route the ports to the front, that is a possible fix for you.

My USB ports no longer detect devices when plugged in.


Updating, or in some cases reinstalling, the drivers for your computer's USB interface should resolve this issue.
Locate the iPod in Device Manager
  1. Connect iPod to the computer.
  2. Quit iTunes if it launches.
  3. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  4. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
  5. Double click the Computer Management shortcut.
  6. In the left column, click on Device Manager.
  7. In the right column, click the plus (+) icon next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
  8. Locate the iPod in this list. In some cases one of the entries will have "iPod" in its name. If no such entries are present, the iPod is most likely represented by "USB Mass Storage Device."
  9. Note: A red "X" appearing next to the iPod's entry in Device Manager indicates this device is disabled. To enable this device, right-click its entry in Device Manager and choose Enable from the shortcut menu.
  10. Update the USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Update Driver from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the Hardware Update Wizard that appears, select "Yes, this time only" to allow Windows to connect to the Windows Update Website. Click Next.
    3. Select "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows searches for updated drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, continue with step #4.
    4. Click Back.
    5. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next.
    6. Select "Search for the best driver in these locations."
    7. Select "Include this location in the search" and type the following in the field below: C:\Windows\INF
  11. Click Next. Windows searches this location for drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, you must reinstall the USB drivers as shown below.
  12. Note: During installation, if a message appears stating that the software you are installing "has not passed Windows Logo testing" click Continue Anyway to continue installing the drivers.
  13. Reinstall USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the resulting dialog box, click OK.
    3. In the Device Manager window, right-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and choose Scan for hardware changes from the shortcut menu.
    4. Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod. Regards...

Flash drive ports on teh fron wont work on pc


If your system is USB 1 rather than USB 2 then some flash drives will not work. Not all usb 2 flashdrives are backwards compatible. My kids flasdrives will only work on my usb2 ports & will not work at all on my wife's computer which has the older usb 1 ports.
