If the computer will not recognize a certain USB device, try another one. If the problem still occurs then I would refer to the troubleshooting page here. Any other continuing problems would most likely result in the need to completely replace the port.

The cable my be damaged * Solution try other cables in the house on the computer and wall outlets if your wires work but the computer is still not reading the device it could be 3. Your computer dose not have the driver installed to read the device. *Solution find the driver online. If none of these work then there is a problem with the usb port and should be replaced
