sudo udevadm monitor in USB 2.0

gives no output, but power is in it, because I can charge phone via it

EDIT:

On Linux Mint 17.2 (the same machine) all of USB ports are working! Is there any way to "port" those settings ,or whatever is affecting it, to Ubuntu?

There are multiple probable causes for this behaviour. What first comes to mind is that the USB current exceeds it's maximum. This causes the USB controller to reset and so the drive doesn't work. The mouse receiver uses less power so it works. You probably need to connect the drive using a powered USB hub, or connect it to the USB 3.0 hub.

A less likely cause is that this particular drive causes the USB hub to reset on ATA probing (not power related). There have been bug reports about this some time ago. But since you describe that the drive works on another USB port I don't think this scenario is very likely in your situation.

  • Funny thing is, that it was working on Windows, but I'm not going back to it... that's why I'm trying to make it work. Beside HDDs I've tried USB pen drives with the same results (not connecting). – RiddleMeThis Jun 8 '15 at 5:11
