Hi,
Three questions that will resolve the issue:
1. Did the printer work? Was it working till the end when you unplugged it?
2. Hopefully you have tried the same devices in other ports and they are working. Else the device maybe faulty.
3. Is the device manager showing any components without drivers?

If the above three points are ok, you may have the seldom case of USB short circuit. USB has power lines. They normally dont short so easy - but things happen.

I would say - ignore the ports. Buy a cheap new hub and use it in one of the working ports. That is your best and cheapest solution.

Computer no longer recognizes my scanner


If you are using a multi port USB adapter that allows you to plug many devices into one USB port it may interfere with the scanner. Try uninstalling your Epson driver then download the newest one from the Epson website. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=88368&prodoid=63070478&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=All&x=27&y=14

Install the newest driver first then plug your scanner into a single USB port on the computer instead of the multi port.

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks

Printer doesn't work


The answer is probably down to the usb port, they don't always like change, because you are trying to swap hardware in same port, they tend to want to stay with one or the other peice of hardware. If you have'nt got another spare USB port, which i assume you have'nt, invest in a 2 or 4 port USB hub(But make sure it's powered by a AC power lead and not just a usb powered hub, because some hardware will not be recognised e.g I Pods), this connects into your usb port and gives you 2 or 4 port more to use, and you won't need drivers for it. They are inexpensive and you simply plug it in. I think this will solve it for you

S75 & Mem Stick Reader Help


I had the same concern a month ago when I bought my USB Stick reader. As you mentioned, the manual says there is no guarantee... I don't have a USB hub but I do use the USB port that I connect the USB Stick reader for other things. No problem. In fact I did not even have to use the supplied CD that came with the reader to install the driver for it. As soon as I pluged the reader to the USB port. Windows ME (yes I'm running WindowsME) found the device and install the built-in driver itself. Why don't you just wait until you get your camera and try it out first. Good luck.
