You turn to the apple community forum or other technology related forums, start asking questions, what happen to your computer USB drive? and people (with good heart) start suggesting you need to check your computer USB ports and the power supplied (500mA) by going to device manager.

Thanks in advance." +++ The forum member "lpstenu" asked mbe to verify my .htaccess and httpd.conf file has "allowoverride" set to all.
