View Full Version : Wonky USB ports

13th May 2006, 03:31 PM
I've got an Inspiron E1705 laptop, which has a total of 6 usb ports - 4 on the back and 2 on the side. The back 4 have no problem recognizing my usb flash drive, but the 2 side ones don't.

If I do a 'dmesg | grep usb' I get something like:

usb-storage: device found at 39
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
usb-storage: device scan complete
usb 5-6: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 39
usb 5-6: device descriptor read/64, error -110

Do I have 2 bad ports?
