It appears that one enclosure (the LogiLink QP0020) is forwarding the ATA commands directly to the drive, and the drive is operating in 512e mode. That means that, even though the drive physically has Advanced Format 4KB sectors, the enclosure and your OS see ye olde 512-byte sectors and so the OS lays down the partition table appropriately for that style. ...

You are basically asking for the opposite of this question: How can I remove the option to eject SATA drives from the Windows 7 tray icon? So try the opposite to the top answer there, either setting the TreatAsInternalPort value for the channel to 0, or possibly clear bit 2 of the Capabilities value for the SATA device (which may affect other drives too).

Just because the plug fits does not mean it will work. A Thunderbolt device must connect with a Thunderbolt controller. If the computer does not have Thunderbolt, then attaching a Thunderbolt device to it will not work even though the connector is the same. The opposite is true, however. If a computer has Thunderbolt, a USB device plugged into the ...

No, the serial number will be stored in the firmware of the drive, which is likely read-only and set in the factory when manufactured. It certainly wouldn't be affected by formatting the drive.

USB-VGA is going to be much more unreliable in any situation since it requires a special adapter. USB traditionally isn't even used for Video and is strictly a Data connection. I'd stick with HDMI-VGA. Even then, make sure you are aware that VGA will not carry audio and you will not have sound. You will need a separate 1/8" Phono cable (AUX cable) to carry ...

Your TV can probably only read USB mass storage devices, so the answer is NO, unless your PC can expose its disks via USB. It needs to have a USB-B or USB-OTG port to do so. This is uncommon (I have never seen it on x86 PCs) but not technically impossible. For example I own an ARM computer running Linux with an USB OTG, and it has an option to expose any ...

The Sandisk Connect might be a solution. It's a USB flash drive that has WiFi connectivity and after some searching it appears that you can transfer files over USB and WiFi. You'd still have to manually transfer the files via web browser and I have not tried this myself, so you may want to do some more research but it should solve your worry of constantly ...

What if you use the disable USB port program via Task Scheduler on user logoff and enable on user logon? Or use Microsoft' devcon command to disable/enable the specific device using Task Scheduler.

The bar-chart graphic is excellent data, just remember that you are actually working in BYTES, not BITS (which is not what most sales literature is referencing). Don't forget, even on that bar-chart, to divide by almost half-again, to get a real-world 'speed' to expect on any sizable transfer. So, If I am moving a 1mb file from my 10/100 laptop to the ...

Mostly this problem will be solved when we uninstall and reinstall the drivers in device manager. You can enable the CD rom through command.

I'm sure this isn't the answer you were expecting but if they were by default disabled in device manager, and they go back to disabled even after you've enabled them, then there probably is some sort of server enforcing that, and you enabling them might log your machine somewhere. In a lot of workplaces it is quite common to have something like active ...

Maybe try "fdisk -l"? See if its listed, if it is maybe its not mounted correctly? Make a mount directory and mount it. Can't mount? Maybe no format support, install "dosfstools" and "ntfs-3g" to support more disk formats. Install "udisks" to automount disks, if none is applicable, I'm stumped. Or you know, your flash drive is probably defective.

I don't think you should mount a LVM partition directly? Instead you should run commands like lvscan to probe for the logical volumes and mount the desire one. The reason it doesn't boot on a different machine can be missing driver in the initramfs. For example, you have an XHCI USB controller on the "Fedora machine" and an EHCI USB controller on the ...

USB sound can be lost after PC sleeps or after playing. I found the problem to be caused by a conflict between devices. I fixed the conflict by doing the following: Find 'sound' on control panel.

Not knowing how technical or detailed of an answer your looking for, I'll give a high level overview and some links. They enumerate the device (give it a number or ID on the USB bus), query it's requirements and identification, load device drivers and bring the device online to use. It's a simple process at its core. ...

Your understanding isn't correct. The USB 2.0 controller you think is "somewhere upstream" is inside your USB 3.0 controller chip. So a USB 2.0 device plugged into it is not using USB 2.0 bandwidth from some other 2.0 controller in the system. (It would not actually be possible for this to happen; the connection topology wouldn't permit it.) So you don't ...

I think yes though I don't think it's currently easy or well managed. I also have not tested this method at all. Theoretically if you had a USB stick that was large enough for both Windows and Linux (probably 8-16GB to be safe) you could put the Windows and Linux Installers on it (make sure to format it to Fat32). Start by putting Windows on it with MS's ...

Looks like the USB stick has disappeared because the partition table on the stick has become corrupted. You need to use some partition recovery tool. There are many free tools available for this purpose. Try easeus or Lazesoft.

Additionally you can try something hardware-related: Clean the pins of the USB-stick with alcohol and let it dry. Try to cool the USB-stick to +6 deg celsius (use normal fridge, avoid humidity). Try to heat the USB-stick to a kind of working temperature (but not too much heat of course). Try to use a USB-cable and/or external hub (that means little ...

Just want to share my experience. We burn a lot of bootable ISO's to flashdrives to setup anything from Windows server series to Windows 7 through 10.

On Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS, sudo service udev restart is critical: The udev documentation everywhere says that udev monitors /etc/udev/rules.d/ for changes, but this is not the case under this distro, so it needs to be restarted each time the rules are changed.

A typical USB hard drive is designed to be a dumb peripheral controlled by a USB host; it's not designed to have peripherals of its own; it's not designed to control a USB Wi-Fi dongle. A small device that acts as a standalone file server on a network is often called a "Network Attached Storage" or NAS box. The TP-Link TL-WR710n appears to be a cheap device ...

Yes, but you should use a cable to adapt it. A USB2 and USB3 header differ, as USB3 has more pins. Image courtesy of here You can get a cable similar to the following: As USB3 is backwards compatible and has a pin out compatible with USB2 devices, it's just a case of matching the correct pins on the header to the pins on the cable.

Yes. The second connector is for power only, it does not need to be a real USB port. A "standard" USB power supply works in this application, I don't see why using a Samsung Quick Charge unit would be any different. This cable will work find for a 2.5" drive, but is not compatible a 3.5" drive or any SATA device utilizing the 12v power rail. Quick Charge ...

Sounds like it might be a driver crash, I use a USB sound card with my headphones and the same thing happens to me on rare occasions.

You would need to create an external controller for such a task. My first idea would be to get an Arduino, Breadboard, and a USB hub and basically create a switch that is controlled through the Arduino. The Aruduino would need a program called Firmata loaded onto it that allows for pin control over serial (USB). Your program on the computer itself would ...

You'd have to get it onto the system ahead of time, but the Devcon tool can be used to remove drivers.

you could use something like autoIt to detect when the usb driver is removed and then uninstall the drivers. I can only give links and idea because i'm not that great at coding :/ So when the driver is removed autoit detects it, and opens the uninstall wizard for the drivers. AutoIt

I'm afraid to say it, but I would expect this to be a hardware problem, although I am intrigued as to what would cause your computer to run slower... There would be absolutely no harm in flashing new firmware or re-flashing the original firmware - as long as it is the correct firmware, can you find a reliable source? If you want to try a few simple fixes, ...

The answer is "it depends". If the USB ports share the same hardware bus then their throughput would need to be spread across the bus. Therefor, this could range from each USB port being on it's own bus to all USB ports sharing the same bus. The actual hardware configuration is determined by the manufacturer.

one easy way to get around the limitation would be to run windows in a vm and record the video from the host operating system. this way the "service" won't be able to kill apps running on the host. the question is, does the app check if it's running in a virtualized environment?
