Have noticed this on some dells. Usually the ones in the back under the network connection should work first. fredpb December 1, 2005 8:28:12 AM Quote:Have you tried all the usb ports?

Tech support (offshore) for emachines was useless. But I removed all USB devices, put the floppy drive into the USB port next to the network connection, and it WORKED! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
