    I have a Macbook pro , bought in Aug 2008 , Aluminium body , running Mac OS X version 10.5.8
    I am having problems with my USB ports on both sides. Primarily the R/H/S .
    When plugging a device in , within seconds a warning comes up saying :

    Device Removal .
    " The device you removed was not properly put away ....etc "

    This happens very frequently using the right hand port and almost every time with the left hand one.

    Any ideas .

    Cheers , Jay

    Try a fresh install before you jump to any hardware conclusions.
