Bought my MacBook Pro in Nov 2010.


I have been using three different flash drives (2 x transcend - 1x4GB, 1x16GB; 1xVerbatim) quite happily until about a week ago.  Now when I plug any of the drives into the USB port closest to me, the drive either doesn't display or it does display briefly followed by a "This drive was not ejected properly" message and then it disappears.


If I plug any of the drives into the USB port furthest from me, they work fine.  ***?


I also have an externally powered USB hub that has a 1 terabyte seagate external drive plugged into it.  That seems to work no matter which USB port I plug it into.


Finally I've noticed that the memory card from my camera has gradually stopped working with the card slot in the macbook.  it's deteriorated slowly, for a while I could slide it in and out and eventually it would connect; now it doesn't work at all and I'm reduced to uploading photos via a USB cable.
