Question about Gigabyte GA-8I845GVM-RZ Motherboard
I have gigabyte 845 chipset motherboard with 4 usb ports. Whenever I connect one pendrive, one printer it works fine. When I connect second device either printer or pendrive it dosent recognise. I should disconncect the first device to start working. I reinstalled the xp os sp2. Still same problem is persisting.
Well, I'm assuming your speaking of a pair of ports either on the front or the back of your system. Most USB ports are paired (i.e. the ports on the front of your system are cabled into a single connector of your motherboard). What if you put the PenDrive in the front and the printer in the back? Another interesting alternative is that if you have any empty USB ports on the motherbard, use something like one of these to seperate and test your theory: http://goo.gl/K2VPu5 or http://goo.gl/VzRZMo. These are great for DIY server, NAS, or AIO where you boot off of a USB drive that otherwise would be hanging outside of the box. In your case though, this will be a test for your PenDrive in one while your printer is in another.
Of course, I cant help but wonder what we're missing here. Do you have a bad printer/USB connection or PenDrive? Is the printer drawing too much current?

Your USB ports on your computer are plug and play. If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related. The following solutions will help you identify the problem to resolve your USB port issues.
To Identify a Working USB Port
Begin troubleshooting your USB ports by checking Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
To Update the USB Port Driver
An out-of-date BIOS driver can create issues with your system recognizing the USB port.

All the usb ports works fine when one device printer or pendrive is connected. Suppose if I connect to usb 1 pendrive it works. If I connect printer to usb 2 it will not work. If I remove pendrive printer starts working in usb 2. Same thing happens in usb 3 & usb 4.

As you stated the device works in one slot but not the other , tells you there is problem with that usb port , don't use those ports , best thing to do is purchase a PCI USB card if you need more USB ports .

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
