memory sticks should be fine on this, there are things like mp3 players that charge through USB that wont charge on hubs that are not powered.
The front ones should be powered though. If the stuff is broken and you just got it, call the case mfg. and get them to send you a replacement for the whole front panel
it might be just the connector, but it might be the whole usb port ?
