Assuming a sufficiently recent Ubuntu, you should be able to add your keyboard to /etc/udev/hwdb.d/. The required format can be cribbed from /lib/udev/hwdb.d/60-keyboard.hwdb. After adding your new mapping, you need to rebuild the hwdb.bin file: udevadm hwdb --update. The next time udev sees your second keyboard (e.g. unplug and replug), it should load ...

When you can't find the csm, the legacy, if Rufus seems too complicated and none of the other options in the answers listed here suites you, try a reset of your BIOS to "Optimized Defaults". You just have to press a key, as indicated in the Bios instructions. Mine was to press F9. As soon as I reset the BIOS, it could identify my USB in a whole different ...

The message you describe sounds like the drive was not disconnected "gracefully". Sometimes, information that is supposed to be saved to the drive is temporarily stored and then written later. When you "eject" the drive, it forces any cached information to be written, ensuring everything is complete. Also, simply removing the drive could interrupt ...

i have the same problem with my usb adsl modem on any computer i connect it to. Meaning, it's the driver that is making Windows misbehave. Try an updated driver, or even an older version if you can find it

As USB 3.0 should be able to transfer around 400 MB/s [1], it should be faster to connect both drives to the USB3. You won't exceed 2x200 MB/s with the harddrives, I am quite sure. For even coming close to this, you would have to copy one very big file to the other harddrive. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB#USB_3.0

Use an USB drive to format+install your OS. To make a bootable usb drive with Windows on it I recommended using Windows USB/DVD Download Tool: http://wudt.codeplex.com/

I am going to quote Hennes This can have several reasons: The device is not bootable. The deivce is not bootable unless it was present early. The computer does not support booting from that type.

Insert USB Disk. Launch the imageUSB program that you used to create the MemTest86 USB and select the appropriate USB Disk. (Be careful and select the correct drive!). Choose the Zero USB Disk option & Run. Drive MBR (Master Boot Record) is now Zeroed. You will need to reinsert the drive for Windows to recognize it and prompt for formatting before you ...

Other option is to obtain a USB-to-SATA interface (Cheap enough on Ebay) and boot from a desktop CDROM drive connected to this and a 5v/12v psu. That will almost always work even if flash ram boot will not.

My USB won't boot I am going to assume that this means an USB pen drive (and not a USB printer, USB scanner, USB network card....) This can have several reasons: The device is not bootable.

You need to change your boot sequence. Some laptops require you to prioritise the boot sequence. Make it in this order: Removable devices Hard Drive CD-ROM If this option can be disabled then do it

Have you tried browsing to the printer in the en.lproj folder when you install it? Also, as it is a PostSCript printer, all you really need is the PPD file. This is a text file, so you can get one from any driver, OS10, Windows or Linux. Just install it in the lproj folder and browse to it during installation.

The reason may be in bad order of loading modules. Such error may raise in case uhci_hcd is loaded before ohci_hcd.

As fixer1234 says, if you are using Windows 7/8, the driver is generic and should install itself from Windows Update. To test this, you can plug the device into a USB port that you haven't had it in before, you should see the installing device driver window appear in your taskbar. I've used several of these of different types both manufacturer supplied ...

The first one probably does not work well due to the power problem you mentioned. Using a powered case will help as you know already. Actually there are some other products which use "another" USB port purely for some additional power (say, they have two USB plugs) but I am in doubt about that - it may not be enough unlike hard disk drives. Note that ...

You can use a USB over CAT5 Extender. The link is one example. There are many available. You can then just add whatever length of CAT5 cable needed. I have used one with a USB webcam and it worked perfectly. Alternate link or search CAT5 USB extender and you will find something. AS noted, there are many models available

Yes, a hub would work. If the hub is bus-powered, it will consume some power from the USB +5V, so the downstream circuit shouldn't draw more than 100mA (conservatively). There are also USB repeater cables.

Turns out the issue was that UEFI computers don't like booting off NTFS formatted USB sticks. I recreated the disk as a FAT32 disk by running a command prompt with Administrator privileges and the typing: C:\>diskpart.exe DISKPART>list disk DISKPART>select disk 2 /* where 2 is the number of the disk to use from the list */ DISKPART>clean ...

there is no such a cable for reason. If you connect two USB hosts with such a cable, you have high chances to fry either one or both of them. Basically, if your terminal have USB OTG (host), you may connect your printer with conventional A-B cable and mini-B to female-A pass-through (look for "USB A Female to Mini USB B"). Though, as @Journeyman mentioned ...

Yes it's possible, you have to use DeviceChangeEvent instead of VolumeChangeEvent : Register-WmiEvent -Class win32_DeviceChangeEvent -SourceIdentifier deviceChange and $newEvent = Wait-Event -SourceIdentifier deviceChange Note that the SourceIdentifier is just the name of event subscription so you can keep "volumeChange" if you prefer.

You can only use up to 127 devices on a USB bus. However, the bandwidth will be saturated well before this hardware limit, devices will be horribly slow, even on USB 3.0. If you must go about this approach, connect all your high bandwidth devices (external HDD's etc) to the first level hub and low bandwidth devices (USB accessories etc) further down the ...

Check and tell us whether it shows up in Windows Disk Management. Post a screenshot. If the external does not have a drive letter, give it a drive letter. Plug it into other ports and check. Change the cable and see whether it makes a difference. Plug it into another PC and check what happens.

Many computer manufacturers do not clearly mark USB port versions. Use the Device Manager to determine if your computer has USB 1.1, 2.0, or 3.0 ports: Open the Device Manager. In the "Device Manager" window, click the + (plus sign) next to Universal Serial Bus controllers. You will see a list of the USB ports installed on your computer. If your USB ...

I had thought that a computer couldn't die if one of the USB peripherals broke Not true. The coffee probably shorted out the +5V pins in the USB stick. Just like the breaker box in your house, an electrical short can affect everything on that circuit.

Unetbootin is designed specifically for Linux distributions and will not work if you are trying to create a Live Windows USB. You can use an application called WinToUSB to achieve this. However, you will need to have access to a Windows computer to start the installation process.

I suppose you can add an init script checking for a particular USB device serial number or even a particular file on the thumb drive (is that what you call dongle?) and halting the system if the required element wasn't found.

(just updating an old question) To cover all Mac's and the technology in general, USB 3.0 adds 5 pins and unique interfaces.
