Exactly, precisely what USB port are you plugging into? Is it in a USB hub, or straight into the computer?

What other USB devices are connected? You must have a USB keyboard and mouse, at a minimum, and you don't mention that they are not working. Anything else?

Have you tried restarting the computer? What about zapping the PRAM? Does the problem continue from a newly-created user on the computer?
