Re: USB Drive controller
You need to install sisoft sandra search google for a free download and find out if you have any USB2 ports on your pc as the hard drive will only transfer at the higher speed as apposed to the usb pen which can transfer at either speeds.
It may also be that your usb port cannot supply enough voltage to run the hard drive, so a mains powered usb hub may be the answer.

Yes, you mentioned that the said device works fine with your desktop, then it is probably not the problem with your device. You have also said that your tried formatting the os. Good.
Hope your pc, laptop and the memory device are disinfected with a good, licensed and updated antivirus.
Check, if Universal Serial Bus Controllers (corresponding to the nos. of total usb port present in the machine) are present and enabled both in the device manager and the bios as well and set to Hi-Speed if it is Full-Speed.
Well, have you tried formatting the memory stick/device? Format it and see if it works.
Next, please change the usb connectivity cable using/attached to the device and see.
Another thing while connecting an external storage device like ext-hdd. The external usb storage devices that gets connected with a usb cable, in some rare cases needs to be connected as a usb-master or usb-slave [you can see many external usb drives comes with a splitted or dual usb port connector cable, this is either for connecting two usb device or to connect as master when used as a single drive], therefore use such cable to connect and use alternated ports, and see which works.
Now, if all above fails, it then might be the problem with your external drive, i guess.
Hello benlaverick Do not plug the usb port before finishing full installation of the device . The best way to get your device running is to delete the software ( if installed , check in Control Panel \ Programs ) , disconnect usb port ,reboot , install software / driver and reconnect usb port . You should get a confirmation message of successfull installation and the device should run . Make sure you have installed a compatible driver with your OS . Best regards fanaudi
Plug it in to your usb drive. Then click on start, then my computer. It will now show you your hard drive disc drive and pen drive.
Right click on the pen drive and Rename it then it will save and everytime you plug it into a comuter it will list your name.
You have to do some steps about fixing this problem :
1: Go to Device manager by right click on my computer then manage and then device manager.
2: Go to universal serial bus controller and export it.
3: in each USB root hub right click and then properties.
4: In properties screen select power management tab and unmark on " allow the computer to turn off this device to save power ".
5: After finishing this steps in each USB root hun restart your computer and then done
is it that you are not able to boot up when the external drive is plugged in or not at all... if it is the first case then it is mostly probably because the external disc drive at first when it starts functioning it takes close to 1A of current but the allowed current for maximum current allowed to be drawn as per usb protocol through usb port is 500mA... Linux doesn't care about this over current but windows very much does....
First I would verify that USB ports are functioning properly by plugging another device into the port and verifying that it works. If it does, then you can try restarting the computer - as sometimes the computer will detect an external drive on startup. You should also make sure that the software provided by the manufacture is correctly installed.
Abhi, u don't have mention that wether can intalled directly on your system port or not? OK. First check your USB driver. If it OK then check to connect your pen drive directly on system port. If it is working well then there must be problem in your hub port or your hub might be of low speed. I think u can understand this. U only can change your hub in this case.
