Title:

USB Flash Drive only recognized on one specific port?

Text:

Ok, here goes:  I used Dasboot to create a bootable Flashdrive with Diagnostic and repair utilities.  The installation went fine and the Flash Drive is indeed bootable and applications are functioning.  But, I noticed one slight problem.  The USB Flash Drive that I used only works if I use the same port that I used when I Partitioned and formatted the drive, if I use the other USB Port Snow wont even recognize the Flashdrive.  I have tried several PRAM resets, SMC resets, no dice.  I also tried several other USB devices on the same port that won't recognize the flashdrive and all the other devices work and are recognized, so the Port is functioning properly.  Has anyone had this experience before? How was it resolved?  I guess it is more of a nuisance that a real problem, but I would like to know why this is happening and what can I do to have the other port recognize the drive as I use the other port for a USB hub and a laptop cooler, so real-estate is a concern.  Thanks in advance for your help and I appreciate any help advice offered. I suspect it's some type of power issue, but my iphone charges and works fine on the Port in question.
