It may be that there is no new hardware to be found?
you could also try looking in your device manager! Give it a go!

Refresh USB ports

In device manager uninstall EVERYTHING nder the heading USB. reboot the PC XP will find and install new hardware all your USB ports will be refreshed.

Equipment should then be recogised when plugged into a port.
