I have a memory which I use for cameras. Think they are called Micro memories. I plug it to my pc with an adapter that lights up. I used to plug it and if it didnt start right away I'd plug and unplug it several times till it got it. But recently Ive noticed by accident that if I just leave it there after several mins sometimes it picks up. Not from the start. I think its strange and dont know if its normal. I dont know if its a power problem on the usb or its normal for it to take its time.
Also Ive read and it has happened to me but am just confirming. Is it true that that if I use safety removal with the adapter it damages and it wont start again? I have tried that without knowing and the adapter never worked again. Ive read the only way is to just unplug it but both things is so strange to me. Back in the day when I didnt know much I just used to unplug(regular USB) it and I dont remember it giving a problem.
