I cant get my usb port (closest to the shift key) to recognise anything. I had my external hard drive connected to the port and was transfering files at the time when my usb harddrive fell and became disconnected. I got the error on my screen that i was suppose to unmount the drive. My external hard drive still works fine and no corrupt files (Thank God) but my usb port doenst work at all. It powers up my external usb drive but does not show up on the desktop or in disk utility. I tried resetting the PRAM and SMC to no avail. I also did the hardware test on startup (Shift + D) with no issues what so ever on the extended test. Macbook Pro 8,1


Please help.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Running SSD instead of HDD
