After upgrading to 14.04 from 13.10 this thing no longer sees USB sticks properly. I was able to mount one of them from shell but was a lot of effort, haven't confirmed the file copy worked yet.
Also my camera is no longer recognised. Is odd really, it usually shows a blue light when inactive, red active. Now no light at all. Tried Skype & Cheese.

Is there a (broken) bus common to those?

Fujitsu Amilo laptop.

Any suggestions?
