Can not detect devices from USB ports

Enter the bios by pressing the delete key every 2 seconds at boot up. Open your manual to page, 2-17. Section 2.4.2 Intergrated Peripherals. Find, USB 2.0 Controller and make sure it is set to [Enabled]. Save and exit the bios. Your system will auto restart.
Your USB ports should be working after windows loads. Play it safe and check windows for software and hardware updates.

You're video cam has a name and model number on it or within its manual. Go to the manufactures web site and download the web cams driver software. Once completed just plug the web cam into an open USB port. Windows will see the cam and ask for the software drivers.
Run the software from the manufacture.

Front usb configration

Just talking from my experience, I have noticed that some boards have problems with USB ports that are connected via a cable (yours is, I presume). Like the P5GC-MX I have in my CCTV server, the front ports only allow Flashdrives and low voltage devices but it doesn't accept USB Harddisks (those using laptop harddrives).

Can you attach flashdrives or is it really dead?

How about your pin connections? was it connected properly using the cable to the board?

What type of casing are you using? I noticed some cheap casings (those especially that don't use FoxConn, have problems with their front USB ports)

Are the USB drivers for your motherboard installed correctly? If they are, you may need to enable the USB ports in your BIOS. Hit delete repeatedly while it boots up and enter the BIOS settings. Try to find something that indicates whether the USB ports on your motherboard are enabled.
