Well this problem started a long time ago. But I just never got around to caring about getting it fixed, but now its getting to me.
My USB ports were perfectly fine, was able to use them and they functioned correctly.
This might or might not be related to the problem, but I know somewhere in the past, my power supply like crapped out or something, and a few of the wires fried, and there was brown burn marks on the big cable from the power supply to the motherboard. So I had to replace the power supply. Luckily my motherboard still worked and with the new power supply I was able to reformat my computer and everything was fine.
However, sometime after my power supply crapped out I just randomly decided I wanted to tyr to hook up my joystick and play some games; however, I noticed that the lights on the joystick were very dim. In addition, it wouldn't detect it properly. Thats the first sign of my problems, I connected the joystick to my other comptuer and its fine. However, my ipod connects to the computer and I'm able to load songs just fine. Sam ewith my digital camera, I can upload pictures fine.
However, my new Motorola SLVR L7 can play mp3, so I tried hooking it up to the computer, and what it does is, it will detect it, be okay for like 2-5 seconds, and then act like it was disconnected for like 2-5 seconds, and it will detect it agian.
HOWEVER, once in awhile it works. Like the first time I installed the program for the phone, it worked. And just a few mintues ago it worked again, but now it stopped.
So I really don't know what it is, are my USB ports broken? Is my power supply not strong enough? I don't know.
Any help is apprecaited.
