Ports do just die.

See the hardware is not broken via other OS.

See the bios settings are ok.

Clear any formatting from the thumb drives.

Try out different isos from different time periods. They will contain different kernels and other applications.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google

Do not think it is a hardware issue. I use a usb mouse and that is working fine. I booted into Win 10 (dual boot system) and the os sees the usb thumb drives just fine
