Question about Electronics - Others
Two questions for ya:
A) When you say USB drive, do you mean an external CDROM, DVDROM, or mechanical HARD DRIVE or do you mean a FLASH DRIVE? (see below)
B) When you say "NOT WORKING" do you mean that when you plug it into ANY USB port, you get an error tone; you don't get any response; you see the drivers being loaded, but no drive appears; you see the drive appear, but no files are listed on the drive; or something else?
From these two questions, we will be much more able to help.
External devices that have mechanical moving parts, like CD and DVD drives often require external power sources in order for the drive to function. Even external hard drives can require a separate power source. This is because the small amount of electricity provided by the USB port is not enough to power the motors inside these external devices.
Another type of external storage medium is called a "Flash Drive". It is like a hard drive in so much as it stores data and appears in your explorer/Finder window like a hard drive. However, there are no moving parts, so it never requires an external power source.
