USB headset problems with Tiger?

I just bought a Logitech 250 USB headset to use with Skype. When I plug into either USB port on my PowerBook G4, nothing happens. In system prefs>sound, it should list Logitech as an option for input and output but the headsets don't appear on the list. If I plug in other USB devices like my iSight, no problems.

I am using a PowerBook 5,2 - G4 and running 10.4.1

When I plug my headset into a USB port on a G4 tower running 10.3.9 it works just fine. Anyone know what the deal is? There is no mention on the Logitech site...and no driver downloads.

I have also run a hardware test off the boot disk and that didn't tell me anything useful with regards to the USB situation.

Is it a Tiger bug or am I on drugs?

Thanks All

I am sure one of the USB ports on the PB is normal and one is USB2. Have you tried them both. For me (PowerBook 5,2 also - 15" 1.25 GHz) the one on the left by the power plug is the USB 2 port.

OK, I have given up keeping this sig up to date. Lets just say I'm the guy that installs every latest version as soon as its available!

Thanks for that info Gargoyle.
After reading your post I tried both ports, although I am damn sure that I had checked both a couple of times...but just in case I had suffered a stroke...I tried again. Now they both work. BUT, last night before going to bed I ran Diskwarrior and Techtool Pro and restarted a couple of times. So that might have fixed the problem.

Again, thanks for your help.
