The drive failure after cable disconnect from the drive side could be of a simple electro-mechanical nature. The micro-USB3.0 connectors are pretty mechanically weak, especially in shroud/shield mounting area, while the cable overmold is usually very stiff. Moving out the cable might happen in a bending manner, and solder bonds between the connector pins and ...

The answer depends on two factors: What is the power capability of ports on your hub. Some hubs have built-in power switches with certain pre-set limits (which are subject to manufacturing variations), some have no control or protection other that "resettable polyfuses" that may have marginal threshold. You can do some experiments with your hub by ...

These are actually a very good question(s). Yes, there is a branch of engineering that deals with protection of computing equipment from external electrostatic discharges and power surges/transients. This is not a matter of any opinion or discussion. Please take a look here link. Any PC box that comes from a reputable manufacturer goes through a set of ...

As usual, posting a question provided the spur to figure out the answer for myself. Posting the answer just in case any other Asus users come here. It turns out this is a two pass process, which is what had me stumped. First Pass (disable Secure Boot) Do not plug in the USB yet. Restart the PC. Hold F2 for UEFI. In the UEFI hit F7 or select Advanced ...

How capable are USB hubs? Their capabilities vary with manufacturers. A good (and USB Certified) USB hub would be self-powered (getting power from a wall adapter, not from the host port), will have individual port power protection/control. And will have an official USB-IF Certification logo. These hubs still sell for $40-$50. A cheap (bus powered) USB hub ...

Hopefully this question will be moved to the android site. It has nothing to do with udev. You'll need to install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) tool and boot into recovery mode. Once in recovery mode, you should be able to do a full backup: $ adb backup -apk -shared -all This should leave you a file called backup.ab which can be restored to another ...

A little confused on exactly what you are asking, since your title and question seem to be two different questions, but here goes.... For your title question "Would a 3.0 WD My passport HD overpower a powered 2.0 hub" --> I have never seen any USB 2.0 port that could not power a USB 3.0 device. The only difference would be since it is a USB 2.0 port you ...

It sounds like the DisplayLink USB device (display processor) in your dock station has died.

There is no need to suspect something or not. Everything is defined in Type-C specifications. Use the common rule of engineering: Read specifications. Yes, the main problem is with “legacy cables”, Type-A plug to Type-C in particular.

Try to debug the issue deeper. First, it sounds like the verbosity of your debug log can be higher, if you don't get any messages related to HID hang-up. Second, try to "regress" the issue. Try to use a USB 2.0 hub between your "Debian machine" and your audio and mouse devices. Try different tree configurations, say, the mouse is connected to the root port, ...

There is not enough information to resolve this question. Does the port shutdown occur with any USB device, or with only particular devices? What kind of devices they are? It sounds like an issue with USB port power management. Even if the core does not go into SUSPEND, the USB stack will continue to operate USB ports with all possible power management (PM) ...

People say different things about charging currents on mobile phones because the charge depends on particular phone charging hardware, its battery capacity, and firmware that controls all this process. And every phone is designed by different design team, and can behave differently. It depends if the phone supports so-called USB "Battery Charging" (BC) ...

May be you should check your charging socket of Android phone. Some times it happens that the charging socket only able charge but unable to transfer data. This is same problem with my Android phone. When I connect with PC it's only gets charged and not detected at all.

I would be quite beneficial if you could add few details about your phone model/make, and your host, their configurations, and operating system versions/branches. The phone can be configured as a USB mass storage class device, or as MTP (media) device, or as "PTP" device ("picture format"). While your host computer likely has the basic MSC driver, but for ...

Apparently it was a good idea to try to boot using the nomodeset option. Seems like selecting "nomodeset" in the menu does not do the job (would that be a bug ?). I saw that the menu was showing the boot option as a string that could be edited manually. Pressing "f6" and selecting "nomodeset" does not change that string. So I manually removed "quiet splash"...

If you want it to be pure Windows, I suggest using BitLocker. It is a builtin Windows functionnality, so you don't need anything else. You just need Windows 7/8 Enterprise or Ultimate, or Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise. Just right-click your USB key, and click Activate BitLocker. If you don't have Win10 Pro, you can write a Batch script that starts TC with ...

I did a bit of homework on the subject - I don't have the equipment to definitively check for safety yet but there's a handful of things I noticed with my own experiments. For most part, this issue seems to be with USB C to USB 2.0 type A cables. They misidentify themselves to certain phones - the nexuses and pixels seem to be the primary ones, and draw ...

Turns out Florian had the right idea: disabling legacy USB in the boot menu fixed the problem itself, so the keyboard and mouse now work on first boot into windows 7. That said, why they don't work with legacy USB enabled on first boot into win7, but then do work after a hard reset, is still a complete mystery.

There are paid solutions for that eg. EndProtection4 by CoSoSys. No idea how that works inside the agent installed on the device but it gives you all information on devices plugged in. You need a server side that manages the clients as this is the software that manages access to devices. Works on Macs and Linux as well.

I was able to disable "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in the Power Management properties of the USB controller. Now the two USB 3.0 ports (with the high-power indicator) both charge my phone while the laptop is in sleep mode (not "off" as I indicated in the original question)

If what you're switching between the computers is simply a keyboard and mouse, What you're most likely after is a KVM switch. Alternatively, if there are other USB devices, there are USB switches that are relatively cheap. Back to your specific case, switching USB via relays should work as is, but there are two things that I can think of that needs to be ...

Often the front USBs on a motherboard are not the same as the one's integrated in the back of the motherboard. I have an ASRock Z97 which has USB 3.0 on the back, but only 2.0 rated for the front. Check your motherboard documentation to be sure.

Use a KVM device, which allows you switch between two computers, but use the same monitor, keyboard and mouse. They can be purchased for less than $20 from sites such as amazon.

It's true that the b43 driver does not support the BCM4360 (14e4:43a0). However, Broadcom's proprietary driver does support this chipset.

If it works for you, you could modify your Kali live image ...

Simpler Method: Windows (10 at least) creates an entry in the event log when you try to eject a removable drive and you cannot because a process has a lock on it.

As you probably noticed already, cloning a disk image implies that the space on both devices is the same or otherwise the files could need to be repositioned on the device which can therefore put the kernel or its launcher at a different place than where the boot sector is actually pointing.

There is a Windows Driver out there that enables Windows to read and write to BTRFS. You might need to compile it yourself. https://github.com/maharmstone/btrfs This might be interesting if you need to do this more often. If you only do this once or twice a month, it is not worth the effort.

Disk management shows that there is a disk. You should try Photorec, just like Cybernard says. The first part of his comment - I don't know about that. If the disk is physically recognized by the OS - in disk management - you should be able to use Photorec. That would be the first thing to try now.

Your hard drive file system is lost and that’s why it is appearing in disk management as unallocated.

I've seen similar behaviour from a drive that simply did not get the power it needed: Despite my USB port being advertised as USB 3.0, it turned out that it was incapable of actually supplying the 900mA that the standard dictates.

The BIOS versions of this motherboard above 1.8 DO NOT WORK for Xeon V3 family. ASRock does not acknowledge this and support will be of no help. Downgraded BIOS version to 1.8 and have had no issue with my second board. Otherwise the USB handoff will not occur correctly.
