So, I've got this MBA, 10 months old and it got a seriouse problem!

The USB port wouldn't work... I'm running Bootcamp, but same problem in the original OS.
Tried resetting the PRAM, nothing happened.

Went to the store, asking for help. Was told to re-install it....Riiiight.. no CD and no USB

Anyway.. I'm thinking there may be something wrong with the port itself and not the software. But the port is closed (and thereby protected) at all times when I'm not using it.

When I plug my Ipod in, it starts drawing power, but it will not find any kind of external harddrive.

I just don't know, anyone got any advice?

(btw, please ignore the bad spelling and gramma, english is my 2. language)

Your English is fine. I would take the MBA back to the Apple store and let them trouble shoot it for you. The machine is still under warranty and if the USB ports are not working Apple should repair it for free.

Yeah, guess I have to... I'm just afraid they'll say it my own fault and then I'll have a bill of +100$
