The only change that happened was moving the PC to a house out of an old apartment. However, after restarting at the new location USB ports do not recognize new devices when plugged in, even though they show 'ENABLED' - NAS drives, video cams, etc. The solutions I have tried: 1.) reboot the machine; results - the same; 2.) Uninstalled the USB boot devices from Hardware Manager, rebooted and hardware was recognized and installed - results - still do not function.
Anything else, before I go out to buy PCI card replacements?

I found this on an internet search:
"If you are running Windows 7 the USB ports can be powered down using Selective Suspend.
Start > Control Panel > Power Options (if not visible change view to Large Icons at top right) > Change Plan Settings (for whatever plan you want) > Change Advanced Power Settings > Change settings that are currently unavailable > Set USB selective suspend setting to Disabled under USB settings and then click OK to save the changes.
You may have to reboot."
Definitely you can try with different enclosure, and it will work in any enclosure... But before buying a new enclosure it would be better if you try to connect the hard drive in a different computer to isolate where the issue is...
If the 1 tb is spinning up, which I assume it is, the new PC (assuming a Win 7 OS) should see it and mount a driver to be able to talk with it. I would double check all my connections at the drive and the PC, try different USB ports just in case one is dead.
Solutions are in order of increasing probability of data loss AND device recovery. Screen messages are loose approximations
A Soft Reset 1. Hold Power switch up for 5 seconds. 2. Screen displays "Goodbye". 3. Restart
B. Hard Reset 1. Hold Power Switch for 30 seconds 2. Restart
C. Recovery Mode 1. Hold Power Switch for 5 seconds to switch device Off 2. Move switch to Hold 3. Press and hold Home button 4. Connect USB cable to device 5. Screen displays "USB" in small type and "16 MB Format" shows up in My Computer 6. Copy firmware files to "16 MB Format" drive letter 7. Disconnect USB cable 8. Screen displays "Firmware update" 9. Restart device
C. Force Format (This one wipes the data partition. Make sure all needed music/pictures/video exist elsewhere)
1. Hold Power Switch for 5 seconds to switch device Off
2. Move switch to Hold
3. Press and hold top/North/up of Scroll Wheel
4. Connect USB cable to device 5. Screen displays "Format and lose data" 6. Press right/East on Scroll Wheel to confirm 7. Screen displays "Formatting" 8. Restart device
D. Manufacturing Mode (included for completeness only) 1. Hold Power Switch for 5 seconds to switch device Off
2. Move switch to Hold
3. Press and hold centre of Scroll Wheel button
4. Connect USB cable to device 5. Windows detects a new hardware device 6. ??? 7. ??? 8. ???
1. If you are connected correctly (via a USB cable), first be certain that the cable is snug on both sides (PC and Canon MP140).
2. If still a problem, remove the Canon MP140 icon from Printers and Faxes.
3. Then, disconnect the USB cable.
4. Restart your PC and log into Windows.
5. Connect the USB cable.
6. The PC should recognize the Canon MP130 and ask for a driver.
7. Install the driver.
If #6 does not happen, your USB cable could be faulty or may be a problem with USB port or your Canon. Move USB cable to a different USB port on the PC. Replace the USB cable. Try to install the Canon on a different PC to test.
You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.
Perhaps its the drivers for the USB ports. Do you have or can you borrow a serial mouse and keyboard (PS/2 style)? If not, perhaps a local computer store may have an adapter to convert your USB devices to PS/2. Look at this site to get a visual of the device I am talking about: http://sewelldirect.com/ps2tousb.asp
This will allow you to bypass the USB portion of your computer and allow you to make the necessary changes in BIOS or to see if it is indeed a driver problem.
