Usb not recognizing devices

Specs: Windows XP, 3.20/ 2gigs of ram
I've never come across this issue before and i'm not sure how to resolve it...but my computer will only recognize a device (flash drive, IPOD, IPhone,) if the device is plugged in when the computer is rebooted... when I try to update my ipod it disconnects and reconnects so it can finish the update, but my computer wont recognize the device or even pick up anything at all. can anyone help me resolve this issue please?

cbkennedy.gmr, can't offer you a solution, but maybe(?) an explanation of why it happens.
At bootup, your machine detects the devices attached to be used. If you connect a new device, it goes unrecognized. There may be a way to update the list (I'd suspect there is), but sadly, I don't know it. Maybe someone else does?
