Question about Electronics - Others
Some USB flash disks need to draw too much power for use on particular laptops, as Laptops tend to have USB ports which only have a low current draw,
the only way around this is to buy a "Powered" USB Hub (IE a USB hub with it's own plugtop power supply).
My Portable HDD is exactly the same way, and doesn't work on some laptops for this very reason.
