I have a wireless book with windows CE 6.0 and the flash drives (USB ports) do not seem to work. I tried a Toshiba flash drive and a wireless mouse but nothing happens at all. There are two USB ports on the right side and one on the left. No matter what I plug into them, the notebook does not acknowledge them.
Take a look in Control Panel then System and Hardware>Device Manager - I think that path exists in the CE version.You should see a list of all the devices on your computer and USB Ports will be at the bottom. If they have a yellow mark beside them, they have a problem and need driver updates. Try the netbook manufacturer's website first - it's e safest place.
