computer troubles :(

Ok guys I need some kind of computer expert or something, I'm having some USB problems. See I got this new camera and ever since I plugged it in, two of my ports haven't been working. They work when you plug in a mouse, but they won't work if you plug in anything else (i.e. external hard drive, ipod, camera). It can't be a driver problem because these are plug and play devices and I have Windows XP. My stuff all worked last night until I plugged in that camera.

The hardware works because during start up the computer detects the devices, but while in Windows it doesn't work. Anybody know what it might be?

Re: computer troubles :(

double check the device manager and make sure you don't have drivers installed that conflict on the ports you're using....

Re: computer troubles :(

i would uninstall the usb's in device manager, restart the machine, and let xp detect them again. make sure you have the recent MS updates. restart the machine after updating through them all. make sure your devices work. once they do, install the camera usb drivers BEFORE PLUGGING THAT CAMERA IN! plugging the camera in should be the very last step! good luck.
