My USB port can recognize any device except for the external hard drive. Any solution?

I'm using Windows XP SP3. the USB port works properly with all devices such as flash drive, digital camera, printer, ... But when I connect the external hard drive (Kingmax KE-91 500GB) into the port, nothing happens at all, and the computer acts like there is no device connected. My external hard drive works well with my laptop, but not with my PC.
