It sounds like your USB ports just aren't putting out enough power for this device. Did the drive come with an external power supply? If so, does it work when you use the external power supply?

Hello here is your pc`s homepage:

First check for any drivers missing in the device manager.

You need to install itunes to communicate with the ipod and ipad:

If you have an old itunes, uninstall it and install the new.

Good luck

USB port malfunction


CHECK THE RATING ON YOUR POWER SUPPLY BECAUSE SOME LAPTOPS WILL REGISTER THE POWER CONNECTION PORT AS A USB PORT AND IF YOUR POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE IS TO HIGH FOR THE COMPUTER IT WILL REGISTER IT AS SUCH, "HUB-PORT" IS SHORT FOR MAINBOARD PORT ON SOME DELLS. UNPLUG YOUR POWER SUPPLY AND CHECK THE RATING ON IT COMPARED TO THE DELLS INPUT VOLTAGE, THE INFORMATION IS NEXT TO YOUR SERIAL NUMBERS AND LABELS ON BOTH PEICES KEEP ME POSTED... JON-T
