about this mac, system report, find the USB and see if it gives any error beside itHey all,
I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro, and one of the USB ports stopped working. Is there a software issue I can check for to resolve this, or do I just need to take it to the Genius Bar?
Thanks iisforiphone. I'm actually not able to locate the port on my device tree, but I'm not sure how the ports are supposed to look. I've got a setup something like this in there:im assuming you tested multiple usb devices on the port already?
You won't really see the individual ports, you'll only see the connection tree....
I'm assuming that the BRCM2070 hub might be one of the ports. If that's the case then the other port is missing. If not, I'm not sure how to identify it.
I first noticed the problem when syncing my iPhone through the cable. At first it connected the phone, then gave me an error. Now, when I attempt to connect a thumb drive, it won't recognize it until I plug it into the second port.
Well... I hadn't done it right away when I found the problem. I thought about it last night as I was going to sleep. I tried it this morning and it didn't help anything though. I got the new thumb drive to load in the slot, but when I barely tapped it, the thing disconnected.Very basic question and don't mean to insult anyones intelligence...but have you shut down and restarted your macbook to see if this resolves the issue?
