I have an issue with the USB ports on my Macbook Pro. When I plug a device in, the device draws the power, but nothing else happen. This is what I know about this problem:
1- USB Prober can see the connected devices and identify them
2- VMFusion it's able to connect the device into the guest OS but nothing happens
3- If I reboot in windows all works good (no HW fault)
4- I tried to reboot in safe mode, login, reboot
5- I tried to reset SMC, nothing.
Later on I realized that apparently this issue it's related only to the composite devices, a simple USB disk work. An iPhone, iPod or Broadband Modem will not work.
Any idea ?
