    I am running Win7 64bit.

    So for some reason my USB ports does not read anything except my Nikon SLR - Apple Ipod and phone among other devices have all been successfully run from these ports, but as of a couple days ago - the PC fails to recognize anything except the camera.

    I am wondering if this is a firmware issue and where is the USB 2.0 firmware download?
    Also when viewed in Device Manager - none of the entries show any exclamation points or failure - I'm totally stumped.

    Unfortunately I regularly remove old restore points to save disk space - as of yesterday - I had only 1 restore to choose from, but when attempting to choose that - it would reboot the pc and when it came to the desktop - it would tell me the restore failed and nothing had been changed - said it might have been due to a antivirus program, but I disabled them and tried it again and same thing.

    I currently have the latest BIOS 1.30 & legacy USB support is enabled.

    This pc is a Toshiba C655 S5512.

    So far I have not determined the cause - I performed a clean boot via the msconfig options - doesn't appear to be software, but am totally stumped at why the Nikon is recognized by the pc and nothing else (either port).

    Now, as of 2 1/2 days ago - when I plug the Nikon into a port (doesn't matter which one), after attempting to copy files to the pc, it will cut power to the Nikon device.

    So it sounds like the ports are on their way out ugh.
