Rear USB Ports DOA?

I just got my XBOX 360 4G.  I connected my 16G flash drive to the device, and it works fine when connected to one of the two USB ports on the front, but it is not recognized when connected to the ports on the rear.  Is this an intentional (stupid) limitation, or is my XBOX broken already?

Actually, it turns out the rear ports are recessed which prevented the USB stick from connecting properly.  Using short USB extension cable works.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
