My PS3 usb ports seem to work fine. All my controllers can be charged on each port, but sometimes i have problems with rockband and my usb flash drive will only be read on the second port. Is there something wrong with my ports or just how it is?

Is the controller completely charged? If it is, then try this
1) Manually turn on your PS3 using the power button on the PS3. 2) Take your USB charger for your controller and plug it into the USB port. (Do NOT turn on your controller yet!) 3) Plug the controller into the charger that is connected to the PS3 USB port. 4) Now turn on your controller using the middle "PS" button.
The lights will flash for a few seconds, and that will sync your controller to that particular PS3 system. This might help :D
Your usb port might have stopped working, but you can still use it to charge other devices like phones, mp3,etc. However, if the damaged port cannot even charge a device, there is nothing you can do apart from managing the other ports. On the other hand, if the port can still charge devices but cannot detect them, you just have to manage the other hub, and use the damaged on to charge only, okay.
I dealt with Beatles Rockband Wii on 2 systems with 2 different configurations.
Wireless Drum kit configuration. The Drum USB Transmitter has 2 additional USB ports, that allow Guitar/mic to be connected, plus there is the remaining USB port on the Wii
Wired Drum kit comes with a 4 port USB hub, connect the hub to the Wii, and connect all instruments to the USB hub.
The Wii will only allow 4 controllers connected at once. So if you have multiple Wii Motes, then you may have to disconnect all but the one used for the Mic player (Press 1 on the Wii mote to unsync or remove the batteries)
Seems that the battery is low on power, when the controller is connected to the usb port of the ps3, all leds should start flashing, this show that the battery of the controller is recharging, when done the leds go off. Note that before the leds start flashing that it can thake up an minute before it starts doing that. Keep your ps3 on to recharge the controller.
All I could say is have a person who is really smart with technology take your Ps3 aapart and check the diodes on your fuse board (green plate that has a buncha little things on it). check to see if your diodes could be burnt or possobly loose. unless you can take it apart but have troubles putting it back together i wouldent try it. have a really smart person fix it. not a scientist or some guy from a company...justi make sure they no wat they are doing. I messed up my USBs by having a short in my keyboard. it tells me to plug in my controler but It wont read my controlers. theres a 92% chance its somthing wrong with my USB ports. I hope this helps you out.
I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
