    Did you have all peripherals disconnected & the AC power disconeted when you took the battery out?

     

    What to do if your computer won't recognize a FireWire or USB device...

     

    If the issue persists, try these steps:

     

       1. Shut down the computer.

       2. Disconnect all devices and all other cables, except the keyboard and mouse cable(s).

       3. Disconnect the computer from the power outlet and wait for 3 to 5 minutes.

       4. Plug the computer back in and turn it on.

       5. Reconnect the device(s) (one at a time if there is more than one) and test. Test with each port if you have more than one.
