    Is there a way to check a USB port? The one on the front of my powermac g5 was working fine yesterday, but today won't recognize anything. The same devices plugged into the back port work fine. It appears to power the device plugged in, but it doesn't get recognized.

    Plug your Apple USB mouse into it and see if it works.

    Check your Apple System Profiler and see what it lists as USB ports/devices.

    Nothing is listed, even though a device is plugged in.

    Try another device. repeat system profiler check.

    I had a similiar problem with an external hard drive. Would not register, then plugged in an apple mouse to same USB port, it registered.

    My solution was a reboot, then the system recognized the external drive.
