Lounge member StevenXXXX’s new system has a number of USB ports on the front and back.
The PC’s sole front-side USB 3.0 port failed to recognize two 2TB external hard drives — but the back-of-the-tower USB 3.0 ports did.
Posting in the Hardware forum, StevenXXXX wondered whether there was a difference between front and back ports. On further examination, however, he found that there’s much more going on than port location.
