What are you trying to use on these ports and does it draw power?

Hmmm... Did you spill anything on it ever? do any repairs recently? Drop it? anything else notable?

I'm gonna agree with Mayer's diagnosis: on these computers devices that require shadow power from the USB port (if they have an optional dedicated power outlet that is not being utilized) the USB port on the left side (the same side as the magsafe adapter) is probably the one that is going to work.

In the unlikely case that it not a shadow power issue, a faulty USB cable MIGHT explain it, but my money's on USB power.

Got some confirming and some contradictory information related to your diagnosis, which I appreciate and hadn't considered.

Confirming info: A USB mouse does work through the right port while the drives requiring shadow power does not.

Contradictory: Two different hard drives, each of which requires shadow power, work on the right USB port of my partners identical MacBook Pro, while it does not work on mine. Same with two different flash drives. Nothing else is plugged in and drawing power from any other port on either machine.

Seems the right USB port is simply providing no power, though I would expect the mouse that does work to require at lease some small amount of power, which would suggest it is providing some power to the mouse.

Any more thoughts???

Kenoli: seems strange they would work on another system, unless they are identical outside and have different internal components? I remember reading specifically in user manuals for Rane Serato and Protools Mbox audio processors that they only support the left USB port on the A1260 MBP. However, it seems that your partner's machine is performing above expected behavior while yours is behaving as expected.

So you're saying that the right USB port is not designed to power devices like hard drives and the port on my partner's machine is a fluke?

Is there any reset similar to resetting the pram or power module that might reset something my machine so it behaves like my partners?

The likely explanation is that the join on your USB port is damaged at the board.., if that's true only re-soldering the joint (IMnsHO not a DIY solution - requires special tools, solder, skills) or replacing the board will fix the problem

Thanks. I presumed something like this. It's not the end of the world and certainly not the cost of a new logic board.
