    My MacBook's USB that near the shift key suddenly stopped working. Other works fine. Help me fast, cause I need to have both ports work. HOW do I solve this?

    Are you under warranty? If so, give Apple a call and get it fixed

    My MacBook is over year old. I can't call Apple cuz I live in another country.

    Then you might be out of luck. It's not that unusual that the port dies, usually it's just issue with power. You can get a hub for the other port to get more ports

    It is a software issue, trust me! I've got hub but when I connect HDD and iPod hub and the devices crashes. I need an app!

    Try reinstalling OS X then, that should solve software issue but I doubt it is software related

    What other drive? External HD? Just copy the files you need to the external and wipe the HD and reinstall. Then copy the files back to the MacBook

    Try booting in "safe mode" by holding down the SHIFT key when starting the Macbook.

    You can also try to remove the battery (don't know if you have a Unibody or not) as well as remove the A/C adapter for 30 minutes or so.
