I read that this may be that the pins on some things aren't long enough to reach. However, I plugged a thumb drive into an extension cable into the front of the case and it didn't work. I plugged that thumb drive into the extension cable into the back of the PC, and it worked just fine, so clearly that's not the issue.
I heard that it might be that the ports on the case are only USB 1.1 - but wouldn't it still work, just at USB 1.1 speeds? I think mice and keyboards are only usb 1.1, right? btw, I have a little usb light thing, and it works just fine off the front usb ports.
Edit: My dumbphone charges off it and is recognized properly. My Zune charges off it but the PC says 'usb device not recognized'.
