As you have already stated that the port in question can run a standard optical mouse, the port seems to be working fine.
Sometimes the drivers for a USB device need to be installed for each USB port. Maybe you have installed these drivers for 3 of your 4 USB ports, but not for the one in question, result of which is the problem you face.

hi i had the same problem when trying to use memory stick have you installed the software that came with the device.
When you get that message cancel it as its not important when your device is plugged goto my computer and see if it is listed their.
If it is select it then it should be working.
If it is not listed then plug your device in the goto add hardware wizard and let the comp search for hardware devices when this has finished then scroll down the list untill you see your hardware device then select this and if you have disk tick box if not let the comp search the net for the correct software and settings.
Doing this solved the problem for me.
Let me know how you get on and if you need further assistance

I have the same problem with the USB's not working. Suppliers say Motherboard problem. solved it by purchasing a PCMCIA to USB port. at least i now have 2 USB ports. you could probably get one with 3 ports.

have you tried dong an OS re-install with another hard drive? this is one way to verify if the USB port is really bad...you need to isolate the software-caused and hardware-caused problems.
