1-try to connect another USB peripheral like USB flash or something else,if this does happen again you have some problem with your USB chip or maybe your main board or USB cabling in your laptop (some kind of short circuit),
2-if your problem still did not solve you have some short circuit or problem with your USB device and try repair or replace the device ,
3-if your problem persist and doesn't solve even with another device you must consider this note:
some USB devices needs 500ma current mode that only available in PCs and some devices and most laptop available in the market just support 100ma USB port
Solutions are in order of increasing probability of data loss AND device recovery. Screen messages are loose approximations

Yes. The problem is you don't have usb 2.0 ports on your motherboard. Its the second generation usb port. So if you want to upgrade you can buy additional hardware to upgrade this. But your motherboard has to be compatible with that additional peripheral too. As an example buses of your motherboard. So you have to check that also when you purchase. This is not a problem. The only thing is it will reduce the efficiency of your pen drive (Access time etc.). Other usb sticks you have may be usb 1.1 devices. :) If this is helpful to you, please rate this . Thanks.
It looks very straight forward. You need to install the driver software on each of the computers then run a USB cable from each computer to the USB switch. Connect these cables to the end of the USB switch that has the four sockets. Next run a USB cable from the end of the USB switch with one socket to the device you wish to control.
When you want to use the USB device from a computer you can select it by right clicking on the USB status icon in the task bar and selecting "Switch" or you can use the hotkey Ctrl+F11 for Windows or Alt+F11 for Mac.
If you find this solution useful I hope you'll rate it...unfortunately most people don't seem to find the time. People like myself are not getting paid for these solutions we're just trying to help.
Found a solution! Came here to post it, since I could not find the solution ANYWHERE on the internet...
an Xbox 360 controller or any other Xbox 360 peripheral with 95% of USB
sound cards or headsets will produce HORRIBLE sound input and output. It
sounds like a robot has swallowed and spat back out the waveforms. Even
if the 360 peripheral is removed any USB audio devices plugged in after
the fact will still sound corrupted until a fresh reboot without the
360 peripheral plugged in.
I believe that the problem is somehow linked to the "generic root hub" driver, which hasn't been updated since 2001, thanks M$.
The solution (pick one of 3):
As long as the 360 peripheral is on it's own internal virtual root
hub it will not interfere with other devices. You can force it to use
another root hub by doing ONE of the following: 1) Fill up your usb
ports with other devices till it shifts to using a secondary root hub,
then plug in the 360 peripheral. This could take up to 10 USB things,
depending on your motherboard and the maximum devices on each root hub. 2) Use an extra internal PCI-USB card for the 360 peripheral. 3) Use an extra external USB hub for the 360 peripheral.
NOTE: A reboot is usually required to clear up the driver's confusion.
