usb DEVICE NOT RECOGNIZED

I recently had to reinstall ny windows xp OS and reinstalled all of my programs. All seemed to be fine, but now, i am having problems with USB devices. Devices which were recognized since the reinstall, are now not being recognized. Devices including an IPOD nano, a Canon EOS 20D and an external HD which all have worked, now don't. I have reinstalled the USB drivers and the software for the devices themselves and occasionally they will work but most of the time they don't. I have scanned windows for file integrity with the scn /scannow command as well as virus and adware scan and nothing comes up. Any ideas? I have even done a system restore to a time when I knew they worked and no improvement. A also have switched to different USB ports and checked the cables and connectors. I have a dell dimension 8300 with 2GB ram and 160GB hard drive.
