I have two hard drives, one with a USB type A and one with a USB type C connector. I also have a USB type A to C cable.
Connect the hard drive with USB type C port with the USB type A port of my computer works well.
But connecting my hard drive with the USB type A connector with the Thunderbolt USB type C port of my computer using the same cable doesn't work. The hard drive doesn't power up and is not found by my computer.
Replacing the computer, cable and hard drive didn't help.
Why doesn't it work?
As it turned out, when I use a regular USB cable with an USB type A to C adapter, the USB type A drive connection works. But the two other cables that came with the hard drive and with a charger don't.
