    You didn't check the wiring?

    If you have a cable that fits, that says "USB" on it, and it's in the right way, would you check every single tiny cable, after spending several hours looking up which colour means what?

    No. You wouldn't.

    You shouldn't have to check the wiring these days. Non-standard wiring on USB headers used to be a problem years ago (I fried a few boards this way), but these days I'm pretty sure there's a standard for this.

    And that is why a system not even 2 years old fried my lucky 128meg USB stick just the other day in a new media reader, right? Better the 128meg than my 16gig.

    Slots I trust, pins, not so much, even if standardized, you can still be off a pin. Ever plug in an ATA cable wrong? Besides, just because it's a standard doesn't mean they stuck to it. Remember the Dell power supplies with "atx" connectors". I have even had one molex so poorly made that it went in upside down frying the drive.

    Point is, a simple 10 second test with an old mouse would have saved a lot of heartache on something long known to be problematic.
