Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

Suddenly my pc re-boots when I plug my ipod into the front usb.

\015 I had prevsiously had no problems plugging my ipod 4g into the front 2.0 usb port on my pc and was able to sync music using Itunes. Then all of a sudden (I think when XP Service Pack 3 installed on my pc) now my system goes to a black screen saying that a recent change in software/hardware has been made and the system needs to shut down to protect files. \015\012\015\012If I plug the Ipod into the back usb ports the pc shuts down. If I plug my camera or phone into the front usb 2.0 port they work fine. I re-installed the drivers because at one point they weren't recognizing music cd's and that seems to have been fixed. I've clicked on properties for the USB's in device manager and they say they are working fine. \015\012\015\012Please help!\015

My front usb ports on my computer suddenly stopped working. I do have vista, and I swear the problem arose after an update.

Its not just my ipod that has stopped working in the front either. And once in a while the ports in the back stop recognizing my stuff. The mouse and the keyboard still work fine though.
