Thumb drive only detected on rear USB outlets
Feb 18, 2012, 3:37 PM
Like the title says, I have a thumb drive that my desktop PC won't detect when I plug it into the USB outlets in the front of the box. It pops up just fine when I plug it into the back.
Other USB devices work fine with the front USB outlets. The thumb drive works fine on my laptop and on other computers.
I have tried unplugging my power source to reboot the motherboard, and this didn't fix the problem. I am running windows 7 ultimate on an HP Pavilion. Please let me know if you need any more info.
