First of all, confirm that your cables are functional. It's surprisingly common for a USB cable to fail at data transmission and you won't be able to tell unless you test it, so don't make assumptions. I went through 4 cables I thought were good before finding one that actually transmitted data in addition to power. Second, I don't know if this is the most ...

I have seen this on multiple occasions and have been looking for a solution for years. I think I have one now. If you actually look at the USBC sector you'll find you can decode it as a USB command block. And also that these sector cause following sectors to shift. Here's an example I have which is interesting for more than one reason, which I will explain ...

Software: USBCheck is an Android app that performs basic testing: USBCheck is an app that’s designed to help determine whether your USB Type-C cable is up to spec.

The FAQ says: USB3.Optical cables by Corning are optimized to work in hi-speed (480Mb/s) and superspeed (5.0Mb/s) systems. The cable can support lower speed USB 1.1 & 1.0 peripherals (<12Mb/s) with use of a wall-powered intermediate hub (either USB2 or USB3). So yeah, just use the hub you’d probably need anyway to provide power.

The answer unfortunately is no. The cable itself is 'dumb', its the driver and usb interface which determine communication type. You could try to downgrade the driver to a usb1.1 but I doubt you'll find a driver for that which is compatible with the usb interface hardware.

Support for USB-C charging depends mainly on the laptop and what voltages and wattages it individually supports, as well as what charger is plugged in. In order to explain this, it's important to understand USB-PD and what it offers. USB-PD is the standard that USB-C uses to allow charging on modern devices. It supports multiple voltages (5V, 9V, 15V, and ...

It is possible to install Linux on a Windows 10 UEFI/GPT system without any other media. But it's not for the novice and it's not simple. Here's a sketch of what I was able to do to get Debian Bullseye installed on my laptop that shipped with Windows 10. Choose your installation media. I recommend the Debian netinst CD, which is about 600 MB. NB it's ...

Try making a Windows 10 installation USB using the Microsoft media creation tool, though if the boot partition has been destroyed, that might not work. If using the latest MS Windows installation ISO fails, try following the instructions for obtaining a Dell Operating System Recovery Image and applying it. However, that version of Windows will be some years ...

The short answer is you cannot . USB is a host/client based connection, meaning one end of the USB connection controls the other. The ports in your computers are connected to USB host controllers. You cannot connect a host to a host.

This is an interesting problem even if it is a few years old.

One possible problem is that USB female to female adapters violate the USB spec, and by violating the spec things tend to stop working.

These are made for host to host communications, and like an ...

Some mention transfer speeds of up to 10GBps, while others claim that it's like comparing apples and oranges. It is comparing apples and oranges. USB 3.x is a communications protocol and USB-C is a port for power and data. I use "3.x" to encompass the different versions of USB from 3.0 to 3.2. USB-C is a port that may or may not carry a USB 3.x ...

For a USB-A port on a computer to comply with the USB 3.0 spec it must be able to supply at least 900 mA. For USB-C the minimum to meet the USB 3.0 spec is 1.5 amps. The maximum for USB-C is 3 amps, unless using USB-PD at 20 volts or more then it's 5 amps. Power out of a hub cannot exceed what goes in. The USB spec says a port must be able to provide 900 ...

Physically: yes, sure. Logically: yes, USB supports up to 127 devices per root hub, and each controller card will contain one or more root hubs. USB-bandwidth-wise: yes — in fact you probably don't even need multiple controller cards, you could probably just use the motherboard's builtin USB ports and a hub to fan everything in (and in fact you may not even ...

USB-C is a connector specification. USB 3.x is probably mainly a signalling specification. USB-C (formally known as USB Type-C) is a 24-pin USB connector system with a rotationally symmetrical connector. The USB Type-C Specification 1.0 was published by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) and was finalized in August 2014. It was developed at roughly the ...

I don't have any reason to suspect rsync is the culprit for this slow speed. I would suspect that the drive itself or its filesystem is the issue. In fact, a few factors hint at a possible cause. You mention it's a USB drive, and you're transferring 150GB at once. I would hazard a guess that your USB drive uses Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR). SMR drives ...

the M-M cable swaps the RX and TX pins but the F-F coupler does not. I attempted to rewire the cable so that the pin configuration would be the same as if it was the computers direct port, however that didn't work. You clearly have wrong M-M cable. In specs, there no such thing, people make all sorts of crazy cables, so you got a wrong one. More, you can't &...

The best way to wipe a drive depends on your drive (type). For example there's the sanitize and format command that are available in many (I believe) NVMe SSDs, which can be issued with nvme-cli. blkdiscard is a nice alternative as well if your drive is "Read Zero After TRIM" (it's even the case with some recent WD HDDs). This is probably the "...

So, first I realized iPhone chargers run 5V, which is the amount I needed; I plugged it into the wall with one and for the first time it booted up!

So it appears after running into this myself and finally getting some time to fight with it, that certain systems' BIOS/UEFI implementations are buggy, and if your Windows installation USB is using GPT partitions instead of MBR, the installer stupidly attempts to reconfigure the USB's EFI/System partition as the target even though it just formatted and ...

can one of those cheap USB monitors be used on a computer during BIOS config, No, that will not work. BIOS expects a directly connected monitor and can't deal with an external monitor.

Firstly, the USB version naming is super confusing. USB 3.1 gen 1 is actually exactly the same thing as USB 3.0. They have renamed "3.0" to "3.1 gen 1" when 3.1 was released. "3.2 gen 1" is also the same thing. Unless it has "gen 2" in name, it's the same port with the same speeds. Assuming that you have 3.1 gen 2 ...
