first thing you want to do is make sure the correct modules are loaded
for your usb controller. to do this run:
$ lspci -vv | less -S
look for OHCI or UHCI and possibly EHCI. once that is determined, run:
# modprobe uhci_hcd
# modprobe ohci_hcd
and possibly (if you have USB 2.0)
# modprobe ehci_hcd
