Thread: External Hard Drive Issue

Here's a dual-power USB cable which has, on one end, a USB 3.0 port, and on the other end, a USB 2 plug and a USB 3 plug. The two plugs are each on a 30cm wire, so you can go an additional 30cm from the hard drive's USB cable.
You could probably get a USB-to-AC adapter that plugs in the wall, and plug the USB 2 plug into it, adding in plenty of power to the USB 3 connection.
Microsoft USB view -- what a worthless display -- shows what the power should be, not what it actually is.

I think it was last year that I contacted Logitech for a security firmware update for a wireless mouse and they emailed me a link for it - perhaps Seagate may do the same if it's going to affect their sales when word gets out about this.
