Yes, it’ll give you more ports, but no, it’ll still provide the same amount of power. That’s of course unless the hub has a separate power supply. So you’ll either overload the port when connecting too many devices or they may either charge very slowly or stop charging completely.

For security reason you cannot automatically run a script or an executable on removeable media sunch as an flash pendrive. User friendly as this may be, even Microsoft blocked this. What you can do is either hack around the USB insert messages, or if you know a valid username and password you can use a rubber ducky. The Rubberducky is an USB tool which ...

On Linux, you can try solutions of this kind : http://www.panticz.de/node/629 which are based on a tweak of udevs rules. However, it will work only on your computer, or computers you have already set up... For security purposes, you can't, AFAIK, run automatically a script located on the USB key.

Instead of unchecking Allow computer to turn off this device..., enable that option. When the computer wakes up from sleep, reset wireless adapter by turning it on again and the connection will be there instantly.

The mount point for the USB drive could be different on different machines, so you need to use a relative path. Assuming the bin directory is in root of your USB drive (/media/administrator/2FE50BF119A67FE4), the just do ln -s ./bin/www/index.html "Khan Academy" from the root of the USB. However, you still may not see what you expect in your browser ...

Absolutely. When you prepare a USB drive for an operating system install, it's not permanent. If you follow the normal formatting steps, you can wipe it completely clean and specify a totally new file system of your choice. It sounds like you didnt properly format the old Debian installation from the drive. If you're on Windows/Mac, give this utility a try: ...

I assume you meant to say that you have made a bootable Debian USB drive. And you want to know if you can delete Debian files and copy Ubuntu ones and boot up Ubuntu from that drive. This may sometimes work. In fact we're talking about two distros that use the same bootloader (GRUB). But I do not understand why you are struggling with this, when the best ...

If this happens with your USB flash drive, the way to fix it is to quick reformat the USB flash drive as FAT32 format using GParted or any other partition editor and then make the Ubuntu live USB again in the usual way.

ln -s bin/www/index.html "Khan Academy" only works if you are positioned at the right place, as it's a relative link. Are you sure you want to do that? (I suspect you want /bin/www/index.html) Check, after you made the symbolic link, where Khan Academy points to with: ls -al "Khan Academy" I'm quite sure Firefox is the same in lubuntu as on the other ...

Disable UEFI Boot and try again (enable CSM Boot). If you install Windows you may want to enable UEFI Boot after the installation.

You're booting from the partition in question, running live, and it's staying mounted the whole time (so you can run programs, etc), right? You can't format a mounted partition, and you can't un-mount it since it's essentially your system drive and always in use. If you want to format it, you can either boot from a different partition or media, or if you ...

A note to those like me who found this post a few years in the future: The 300 Mbps version (the PAU06) works just fine with the rt2800usb driver included in most standard Linux distros today.

Had a very similar issue. When I plugged in my phone through USB, the wifi would disable. This issue was that the computer was detecting the phone as a network connection. I disabled the "Disable Wireless when wired connection" and now no longer lose connection. This or checking AutoPlay options may also work for other types of usb connections causing ...

Safely Remove has never worked well, and Microsoft will probably never fix it. If the drive won't let go, just put your computer to Sleep, wait about 15 seconds till the USB drive light stops flashing, and then unplug it.

You can use Process Explorer to close handles that might be preventing you from ejecting the drive. The easiest way is to search for the assigned letter to your drive then right click and close the handle(s). Example:

Are you sure it is faulty hardware? If you go to device manager, is the device flagged? Have you checked to see if there are updated drivers or possibly BIOS updates?

this is happening either when the solder holding the USB port has broken off the mainboard copper-plated pins are corroded / tired - usually this is the case Of course, the normal solution would be to change/resolder, but if the latter is the case, there is a trick which will help you for a time. get an old male USB connector, which you would never use ...

Have you considered using Virtual Machines with a single base OS? It would make maintenance of the systems much simpler, as well as allowing you to boot multiple systems at once. You can create snapshots and backup systems very easily. You could still use your external device to accomplish this.

Most USB ports don't have serious surge protectors. If you manage somehow to feed power into the USB port you will in 999 out of a 1000 cases have fried the motherboard of the computer beyond any hope of repair. There is something you can try though: There is small change most of the laptop still works. (This will not make it fit for sale as fully working.) ...

I don't think anyone makes PCIe expansion chassis for USB 3.x, so you're looking at a US$200+ Thunderbolt PCIe expansion chassis, which is pretty expensive and bulky, plus the cost of the 802.11 card. You'd probably be much better off finding a USB dongle Wi-Fi adapter that uses a chipset supported by the driver you care about. Perhaps any from the long ...

Not directly an answer to your question but related: As far as I know Windows needs to be on the first two partitions - one small SYSTEM_RESERVED and the windows main partition.

Yes, you can use udev to write a rule which will then create a symbolic link of /dev/sdb1 to /dev/mydiskname1. To do this you need to do the following: Use udevadm to "walk" down the device tree and find the serial number of your drive. Create a udev rule which creates your symbolic link when that drive is inserted. This Page has the most concise ...

Buy some rubbing alcohol from the supermarket. Get the lowest percentage alcohol you can find - usually 70%. The other 30% is benzene, which lipstick will dissolve in. Neither are harmful to electronics and evaporate quickly. Dip a Q-tip or similar object in the alcohol and rub away the lipstick.

Mineral oil and a paint brush? Non-corosive, non-conductive, probably compatible with the ingredients (may actually be an ingredient). Won't rust anything.

A brief education on USB 2 vs 3: Think of USB as a pipe (It's actually called a "bus"....Universal Serial Bus) that can only push so much data through it per second. For USB 2, this limit is 480Mbps, or 480 Megabits per second, and for USB 3, it's 5Gbps...5 Gigabits per second. This means that across ALL USB 2 devices connected to your computer, the bus ...

USB 2.0 is USB 2.0. It won't get any faster, no matter what you connect to the other end. And it will be too slow to be really usable. Believe me, I tried that for laughs once and it was even worse than I expected. Firewire is better for speed (not by much, but at least you get consistent throughput, which USB won't do), but way more expensive than ...

I wanted to make only a comment about what my theory is about your question is, but I need 50 points to comment and I don't have that. Here is my theory.

Call me Captain Obvious but the problem is that you broke your PSU in three different ways: you bust capacitors, you replaced one of them with the wrong value, and you blew the fuse. When the fuse blew, there's a good chance you destroyed more of the electronics, since fuses take a very long time to melt compared to how long it takes electronic components ...

This has been an ongoing issue for a long time, based on web searches I have done (such as the one that led me to your question). Unfortunately, everyone has questions and nobody has answers... or at least, not anything that fixes the problem. It's only the mouse and keyboard that are affected. Other USB devices work just fine. I have to assume this is some ...

I'm a little late, but the meta-distribution Gentoo would be a great choice.

Yes, a cable could cause poor performance. And especially if it's a cheap cable, which may not really meet the USB 3 electrical specification. The other possible reason is that you may have used a different USB port on your computer from what you were using previously, when you were getting 10-minute transfer times. It's quite common for computers to have ...

This Anandtech review suggests that it does do something but probably helps more on USB 2 and small files rather than USB 3. What this suggests to me is that it is essentially a buffer or disk cache layer that can optimise the order that files are written to the device. That makes sense though. There is no way that the software can make the underlying ...

You cannot go from an eSATA connection to USB only the other way around I'm afraid. I verified this a couple of days ago on another question. You can of course get external disk housings that take both connections if you only want disks. eSATA however only supports storage, it doesn't support all of the other things that USB can do.

You cannot use an eSATA port with USB devices because it does not communicate with a USB controller. However, eSATAp (with a "p") ports exist which are capable of accepting both USB and eSATA plugs. This Wikipedia.org article may help you identify if your laptop has a combo port (see article photo)

If you are concerned about employees leaking data, you can try setting the users to Standard Users such that they are not Administrators on the computers and may not be able to install drivers needed by the USB wireless devices.

Bent pins can sometimes be bent back using needle nose pliers or tweezers or any small lever you can find that fits into the sheathing. Work slowly, but be prepared, however, the risk is high the pin will break off and the flash drive will be rendered useless. Good luck!

A possible cause of the computer taking 4 attempts to power up is a failed RAM stick. The computer cannot properly identify the broken RAM stick, so it initiates a reboot and after three times it gives up and reboots the computer without using the broken RAM stick.
