    I have a problem with my Macbook (early 2008). It suddenly stopped recognizing some USB devices.

    Here is the list of devices I tried to connect to the Macbook. YES/NO at the device name means whether it works or not:

    - my iPhone 3G - NO
    - my girlfriend's iPod Nano - NO
    - my external hard drive (WD My Book Essential 2.0) - YES
    - friend's external hard drive (WD My Passport Essential) - NO
    - friend's Nokia 5310 - NO
    - both my USB Flash Drives - YES
    - my Microsoft Habu Mouse - YES
    - my Olympus digital camera - YES

    I looked in System Profiler if the non-working devices are shown there but they are not. Any suggestions what might be the problem ?

    Note: MacBook is fully charged and I've tried both my USB ports.
