    SO, got no help on my posts on apple discussions(I frequent here, just never signed up).. reset the Pram, reset the SMC, went into the apple diagnostic tool on startup, NO issues found, also tried fixing disk permissions, I JUST wasted four hours getting Mavericks reinstalled because I figured it was my last option, still doesn't work.



    The port is detectible on the "system report" under USB. It won't detect my mouse, or my phone. The "upper" usb works fine. the one by the card reader does not. The card reader works, etc.



    I'm extremely frustrated with this, my nearest apple store is three hours away, The warranty is up (though this was new in box when I got it a week ago..) I'm not paying to have someone on the phone tell me to do what I've already done, then tell me I did it wrong and go to the apple store.



    What else can I do?? Have I missed anything?

    Below is the system report on USB's

    If you bought it brand new from an Apple Authorized reseller and you have a receipt, the warranty is valid.

    Anyway, it probably needs a new logic board if a reinstall of OSX didn't fix it.

    *edit* If you posted the same thing here that you posted on Apple, I can see how most people would have stopped reading and moved on. You've got way too much unnecessary information in your post.

    Craigslist, so no warranty. And first was shorter, then after the os reinstall, i posted this one. I should also note it was the cmd+R to avoid data loss.. Would a clean install Fix it? It had lion(?) on it when I got it and I was almost certain the USB was fully functional, as I had my mouse plugged into it.

    also, thank you

    I'd try a clean install. If it's a software problem, whatever is causing the problem may have been restored back onto the computer.

    Did you double check to make sure the original owner had already registered the serial number? If they didn't, you can enter the day you bought it as your date of purchase and it should start the 1 year warranty.

    It appears it has a valid purchase date already... ;(

    ----------

    I'm a developer(paying for the access and whatnot) (I had previously had a macbook, and I still have my old ones) would an update to Yosemite possibly fix it?

    Has the entire year already passed? If not, you can add Apple Care anytime within the first year.

    It was $725... Stupid usb is the only issue I'm having with it. :(

    my last one was a loaner from the design school I was at and was a mid-'10 15" MBP... had 8gb ram, yet my mid-'12 i5 is loads faster.. I plan to upgrade from 4gb ram to at least 8, and make my primary hard disk an SSD, and the secondary where the disc drive is.

    EDIT: the 725 was talked down from 800, which was still a steal, as from apple (refurb) it was more expensive.

    725 is a great deal. I wouldn't worry too much about the port. With SSD that machine will be a beast and if you need more ram def upgrade that too. I would upgrade your SSD first and then if you feel you need more ram, upgrade it. The SSD may very well give you the added speed even with the current 4GB of ram.

    Yeah, it was a fantastic deal. who knows, yosemite may fix it... who knows.

    Photoshop, final cut, and illustrator all seem to run and load reasonably fast, currently, but yeah, ssd is next step. :)

    Maybe? A clean install would be a better test of whether or not it's a software issue.

    Well, it was worth checking because Apple is still selling the Mid 2012 13" MBP.

    I had the same problem on a late 2011 MBP I bought, but my deal was a STEAL:

    $250 from a fellow student. Found out it had a bad front USB after I upgraded to 8GB and SSD. Sold it on eBay for $560 and bought a new one from Best Buy ($989 after student discount and sale).

    In about this Mac, it is listed as a mid 2012, so yours had a possibility of a warranty.

    I tried re-installing the OS and PRAM reset as suggested by others who had that problem, but no luck.
