    Hi

    My PowerBook with OSX10.5.8 does not recognize an USB device (a footswitch for transcribing).
    I tried:
    - Connecting the device to another PowerBook (it worked)
    - Finding the device in the System Profiler (it doesn't show up, and neither does my external keyboard or my USB stick I plugged in for testing that. I'm not 100% sure I'm looking in the right place, though)
    - restarting the laptop with the device already plugged in

    Any ideas what I might be looking at?

    Ah, and I also tried if the ports work fine, they do work with other USB devices.
