I'm having a problem with my iBook G4 computer. The USB ports aren't responding to any devices I've tried to connect. One port stopped working first and about a month later the other one followed. Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated. Thank you.

Is it definitely a hardware problem, or could it be software? I'm lost on this one...

Run Apple's Hardware Test in Extended Mode. Let us know what you find. The Hardware Test should be on one of your iBook's install disks.

What hardware you put there?
Camera, scanner modem?
Some of them do not recognize. It is normal.
Try a memory stick for any case.
Good luck.
