I am running Win2000 on a Toshiba Tecra 9000. I had to rebuild the complete OS several months ago. Since then, I have had off and on usability of my 2 USB ports. Now, neither of the works at all.
I recently bought an ipod. I tried connecting it up through the USB ports and I get no connectivity. What is odd is that there appears to be a connection at first - the ipod shows a connection. But after 1/2 a second or so, the connection goes aways. I have tried a USB mouse as well. Same problem.
I have looked in the Device Manager. The USB ports show as running normally. I have used the USBReady.exe utility. That shows the USB ports are working.
I am getting conflicting information and I do not know what to do. Before I spend the $ to have someone look into this, I would like to see if someone out there can help!
