So I have finally come to realize my friends computer keeps ruining my USB devices. So far it has ruined 2 external HDD and a Mouse. I don't know what's causing it because the devices aren't completely ruined, they just don't work normally? My mouse and both my HDD were working perfectly until I plugged them into my friends computer and now they don't work. One of my External drives works in one of my USB slots but not the rest? My mouse no longer works wired, it only works with the wireless receiver that uses the same cord to connect the mouse via USB. I am so confused by what's even happenning?
The first External HDD just became "USB devices not recognized" or "Device driver didn't install properly"
Same with the second HDD external one except it works in one of my USB slots.
My mouse won't work when I connect it wired USB but I can disconnect the USB cord from the mouse and plug it into a wireless receiver and it works now?
Can anyone help explain this dilemma to me and if there are ways to fix both his computer from future damage to other USB devices, and my USB devices?
Thanks for your time,
