Some older external hard drives required special USB cables with two plug-ins. This was not for the sake of data transfer, but because they needed more power than a single USB port could provide. Some older units even went so far as to have the laptop-type "brick" power supply since they needed so much power. This is probably what is wrong here. Your Mac Book probably doesn't have the current to handle the drive on the port and is protecting itself. Some units have one or two high-power USB ports. This may work if you have one. Otherwise, you'll need to download the drive another way.

To my knowledge there are no video drivers to output video on a Mac USB port in the Mac OS system. There are however, devices that connect to the USB port that will give video out on Conventional (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc) connectors.e.g. http://www.newertech.com/products/viddu2dvia.phpMost projectors connect via VGA - what Projector are you using?

It's possible your USB slots have a lot of dust, or could be physically damaged and is causing shorts. If three USB drives have already been damaged, your best bet is to send the mac book to apple for inspection. If your warranty is up, or you're feeling adventurous, you can open the Mac Book your self and have a look at what's going on near, around, or on the USB ports.
