Usually you don't need to do anything for any Windows to recognized the USB Ports. I will say that if the for instance a flash drives is not seen that you make sure that works in another PC.
Sometimes Windows gets confused if many USB devices were used and then removed. Eventually it will stop recognizing anything that is inserted. If you know how to use the registry you can fix it but if you don't better not try it. Your other option is to re-install Windows.
As a technician I could some other things before re-installing so I will leave like that for now.

You need to go into system devices. Here you should find a list of all USB ports, and will allow you to right click (usually) to bring up a drop down menu with options and current "status" of each USB port.

Cant connect phone through usb on 1525 dell?? wont read anything when i plug it in ?!?!?!?


Did it worked before?

Test the USB ports first. Update BIOS download it from the Dell support. Try a different USB devices like flash sticks, external storage or other USB devices. If all external USB devices fails USB port might be defective. Call dell to replace motherboard.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck

My magic jack is not being read by my acer notebook


when you plug it in does anything come up? If not then go ahead and try different usb ports and see if its read by any of them. If none of your USB ports read the magic jack and you know the USB ports work cause you can hook other devices to them then that means the magic jack is bad and would need to be replaced.

If none of your usb ports are reading any devices then that means the motherboard is bad at that point.

I added a 512mb stick to my ibm t30 think pad and one port is bad


You can plug a USB hub into the working USB port on the computer. The USB hub can have several ports so you can plug in several USB devices.
I suggest you get a powered USB hub because if all the devices that you plug into this hub exceeds 500mA then your computer's USB port will stop working because it could not supply enough current.
You will not need to plug in the power adapter into the hub if the device/s do not overload the computer's USB port.

Usb port


The USB port is for updates, I am not sure how to update the television? However it is my understanding that it doesn't read MP3 or other media players, However there are several DVD players that read media devices.

Canonmax310 negates other usb ports


Local computer shop employee suggested that the USB ports on the front of the computer might be the problem rather than the printer causing havoc. I connected all devices on the back USB ports and the problem was corrected.
Thank you for the opportunity to seek help with this matter.

Usb


1.1 is the older usb connection. 2.0 is faster and is found all all new laptops and some older laptops and desktops. 2.0 just basically is a faster usb port, and can read more devices compared to the 1.1. you can still use the 1.1 usb port like a 2.0 port but like I said it wont always read or just will read slower. 2.0 is better. You could also find 2.0 usb HUBs that you can plug in to the 2.0 port and have extra ports depending on the HUB, if you choose not to use the 1.1 or 1.0.
