What Operating system do you have? If it's Windows XP with service pack 2; USB should be working OK - with OSes prior to that (I think) you need to install USB drivers (should be on the disk that came with your motherboard/computer).

If you reboot your pc and right click on "My Computer" and go to system properties (at the bottom) ,and then go into Hardware.Now click Device manager and then look at the bottom of the page to see if the usb's are enabled .

What exactly is it ?
