A secondary issue is that if the Passport is plugged into the USB port on the side of the Dell flat screen monitor, it is not recognized. Windows Explorer, Device Manager etc. do not show the drive. It runs continuously as indicated by touching it and seeing the small indicator light on the side of the Passport. When it is plugged into one of the USB ports on the computer itself, it is always recognized.
Puzzling? You bet. I have checked the BIOS settings, the boot sequence, you name it. I should mention that whilst I am not by any means an expert at these things, I have built computers, I have designed software for them, and know my way around resolving problems such as this. However, this one has me stumped. Any suggestions out there?
