Re: usb stopped working
Hello there! thanks for using Fixya.com!
I guess you already tried everything and that's bad sign. Well, I can suggest to you that check another USB cable and try it. If its still same problem, better consult your technician so that he can check it personally so that we will not do anything harm to your laptop. that's better i guess!

This program may help. Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!
Put the memory card into an USB card reader and plug it into the USB port in your computer, then run the Recuva program.
Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
Can be run from a USB thumb drive
Restores all types of files, office documents, images, video, music, email, anything.
Restores files from removable media (SmartMedia, Secure Digital, MemoryStick, Digital cameras, Floppy disks, Jazz Disks, Sony Memory Sticks, Compact Flash cards, Smart Media Cards, Secure Digital Cards, etc.)
Restores files from external ZIP drives, Firewire and USB Hard drives
If your computer does not have a CD drive then -
There are two methods. 1. Purchase or borrow an USB external CD/DVD drive connect it to the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this drive. 2. Use a different computer and copy the contents of the CD to an USB memory stick and then plug it into the mini laptop's USB port and install the software from this USB memory stick.
If you have lost the installation CD then I suggest you go to the Samsung WEB site and download the installer file for your model cell phone.
Iphones and ipod touches can be picky about connecting to the computer. If there isn't a direct usb connection to a powered port (if you go to a hub) sometimes these things won't charge. You can use a power adapter from apple that your ipod/usb cable will plug into and then you can plug it direct into the wall outlet at home... Works like a charm and is quicker than charging usb.
