One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port
6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section

Try using another USB port. Does it work on another computer?

Sounds like you require new drivers for the USB sockets. Only use Acer drivers, Microsoft are not trusted to work without issue.

You can easily test this by removing the battery from the laptop, plugging it to the wall & see if it will work on or not. If it works, then the problem lies within the battery. If it did not work, the problem might be in the adapter or the laptop itself. Try using another adapter which is known to be working fine & see if the laptop will work. Beware that the adapter must be of the same type used by your laptop.
You can also try your adapter on another laptop of the same type to see if it will work.

Hmmm just found solution to the cine dash volume control problem.
You need to shut your laptop down. Remove the battery for 10 secs. Replace battery. Boot up and all should be okay.
I have tried this on mine and it worked fine. If this does not work straight away someone else said something about LaunchManager but I didn't have to do that so can't give any info on that.
