    Hello There,

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-11F laptop. It comes with 3 USB ports.
    I have an older 1GB pendrive and just recently purchased a Maxell 16GB pendrive.
    The pendrive works flawless at work, desktop pc but does not seem to work with the laptop.

    I managed to use it only once, since then the laptop USB port simply does not recognize it.
    I can tell it as the red led is not flashing and the pendrive can not be accessed.
    I tried using the supplied Toshiba USB hub, no luck either [​IMG]

    The 2 USB ports are ok as I use mouse, digital camera with it.
    So is the 16GB pendrive, it works perfectly using other machines eg desktop pcs

    Am I missing some USB drivers or whats the problem ? :eek:
    Please help as I need to be able to use the unit on the laptop too.

    Thank you! :cool:

    I'm doubting its drivers but you said something I want a little more information on.

    Was this a powered Toshiba usb hub or unpowered?

    If unpowered do you have access to a powered one?

    unpowered. its connected to the usb port then its working as a 4 port hub.

    i cant have a powered one, and what do you suggest ? do can I get the 16gb pendrive working on this laptop?
    I only managed it once after toying around with it but since then no luck.
    and I have data on it I want to copy plus I bought this one for a reason. :eek:

    i want to use this but no luck on this laptop in any of the 3 usb ports it has.
    cant understand why it works with desktop pcs and not with this new laptop.... :eek: thanks!
