    Hy all

    i just bought a powerbook 12". cool thing, just great!

    i connected my usb 2.0 harddisc to the mac. everything fine. while i was importing music files into itunes the disc crashed somehow (wasn't answering anymore). whe i connect the disc to my pc it works just perfect, but the powerbok doesn't even recongnize it. the usb-slot i used is even not usable for other devices like usb-memory stick or the mouse. does anyone can help my out of this?

    thx
    matoo

    So you can't use that USB port on your PowerBook anymore for anything? If so, it sounds like the USB port died on you. I would take it to an Apple Retail Store if you have one near by and have them check it out.

    How old is it, after a while those things just die.

    You can try resetting the PRAM. I don't know if it will work, but it's worth a try.
