Actually, the answer may lie within that thought -- I've been thinking about 
this (ain't that dangerous <G>).  There is a limit to the bandwidth a USB 
device can use.  The power supply is supposed to give it additional power 
(bandwidth) but what if the power supply went bad?  That would, perhaps, 
explain why it won't work, and why the light is red instead of green.
