If the drive came with a dual-port USB cable, use both ports - if not, use an external power supply or a powered USB hub for it.Â Notebook USB ports often will not power a hard drive from a single tap. Â
Use a powered USB hub, a dual-port USB cable, or the external power supply that most drives have connectors for. В
Nope, I have a dual USB port Dell Inspiron 600m, the bottom port still works, just the top doesn't. Moreover, I go into the USB settings and they are consistent saying they have 10% system reserved power.
Make sure the external enclosure has a dual USB port cable (you must use BOTH ports at the notebook end). If it doesn't, you'll need a powered hub. Chances are that if you're using just one USB port, the power to the drive is not sufficient to operate it.

The drive is likely not receiving enough power from the USB port.Â If it came with a dual-port connector, connect both USB ports. Otherwise, attach an external power supply to the drive or use a powered USB hub. Â
Most notebooks won't power a hard drive from a single USB port - you will need a dual-port cable or a powered USB hub. В
Is this a 3.5" or a 2.5" drive? If it's a 2.5" drive, does it have an external power supply or a dual-USB cable? One USB port may not power the drive. You will likely need either a power adapter, a dual-tap cable or a powered USB 2.0 hub.

If the drive isn't self-powered (i.e., doesn't have its own AC adapter), be sure you use a powered USB hub, or a dual-tap USB cable.Â A single USB port very often won't power an external drive on its own. Â
