front USB  ISSUES! front USB's not working?
« on: August 03, 2005, 09:08:58 AM »
Please help! I am stuck on an issue with a USB stick recently purchased. The stick is fine, the issue is it will only work on the 2 USB ports on back of the computer, not with the USB ports on the front. I have tried other devices, and the same thing happen, fine with back usb ports, but not with front. I downloaded a program to see if the fron ports were recognised, and this has told me they are USB 1.1, but i'm not sure if this means they are actually connected? Anyway, i cant get any device to work on the front USB ports, any suggestions?

Thanks!

The front ports may not, if they are indeed USB 1.1, deliver enough power for the USB stick to work.

Try connecting a device that does not draw a lot of power, like a mouse, to see if they are functioning properly.
