"tried to insert a usb ion "

Apparently it's probably an Ion USB connected turntable.

Which model is it ??
http://www.ionaudio.com/turntables

If it came with an external power adapter, you must plug that into the turntable, or use batteries in it if you can do that, as well as plug in the USB cable to the computer.
E.g. iPTUSB comes with an external power adapter.

"but nothing happen, usb not detecting to the usb port."

The Ion turntable not being detected is an entirely different thing from the USB port not being detected.

If the USB port works with any other USB device in the operating system, such as a flash drive or a mouse, there's nothing wrong with the USB port or the generic drivers the operating system loads for the USB controllers.

"i don't have a driver of this"

You probably need to install software for the Ion turntable. If you don't have that, go to http://www.ionaudio.com
and get it.
You may need to install that software BEFORE you plug in the USB cable to the turntable.
Download installation instructions if you don't have them.

You don't need any drivers for USB 1.1 support - the generic drivers for that are built into the operating system. Your Ion turntable will work with USB 1.1support. If your NEC model supports USB 2.0 , you do need drivers for that - they are included in the main chipset drivers for the laptop model - those are probably available on the NEC web site in the software downloads for the model. All USB 2.0 controllers also support USB 1.1, so the USB ports will work even if the USB 2.0 drivers have not been installed.
If USB 2.0 drivers are already installed, you will see a listing for an Enhanced or USB 2.0 controller in Device Manager in the USB controller related listings.
.......

The USB controllers must be enabled in the laptop's bios Setup. If your model supports USB 2.0, you can usually only disable USB 2.0 support in the bios - you can't disable USB 1.1 support.

There must be USB controller related listings in Device Manager. (RIGHT click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager).

If the laptop has been dropped, or if liquid has been spilled on it, it's quite possible that none of the USB ports work.
........

The USB port you plug the Ion turntable into probably must be able to supply the full spec 500ma a USB port isable to supply. A few laptops can't supply that - in that case, you must use a USB Y cable and connect to two USB ports on the laptop.

Troubleshooting USB device problems including for flash drives, external drives, memory cards.

Tubesandwires,

Rather knowledgeable response, but is it possible that erictorz meant to say "tried to insert a usb in the usb port"?

I'm not necessarily saying that you're wrong in thinking usb "ion", but "i" and "o" are right next to each other on the keyboard, and I see no other mention of any turntable in the post.

Perhaps you're like a spellchecker program that has such an enormous word-recognition that you recognize "infarction" as a correctly spelled word (sorry, lame attempt at humor there!)
