Default usb problems? or something else...

so yesterday my USB printer stopped responding and i cannot figure out why, and today my usb card reader stopped showing up in explorer, as though it doesn't exist.

my ipod still works, but my other usb things have quit. device manager says there all working correctly... where do i begin?

Send a message via AIM to Mr. Switch

uninstall your USB card drivers (if they exist) and remove your USB card. than, put it back in and install the drivers and see what happens.

Try to unplug the power to your printer and then plug it back in.Sometime it helps.
