I've made a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04.1 and I'm unable to detect usb drives.. no idea why.
This is the ouptup of lsusb while I have a usb drive connected.
lsusb Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04ca:3018 Lite-On Technology Corp. Bus 001 Device 004: ID 13d3:5a01 IMC Networks Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:0129 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller Bus 001 Device 002: ID 24ae:1100 Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
I have no idea how this happened or how to fix it, can anybody help? Thanks for the effort.
Both usb devices and external hard drives ( mass storage usb device) were not detected....
I have done a fresh install again , now usb devices are detected except for the external hard drive that is detected only through USB 2.0 port and not detected from the USB 3.0 port.
Earlier with the original ubuntu install I had done it was detected on the usb 3.0 port also.
I must add the fact that the usb device is in NTFS filesystem. Also the laptop is booting in UEFI mode , I have disabled legacy bios support in order to make an UEFI ubuntu install.
I have run the command
sudo /usr/sbin/update-usbids but the external hard drive is not detected through usb 3.0 only 2.0...
I have no idea what happened... now the external hdd is detected also through usb 3.0 also when I boot in uefi and legacy bios. I'll try to see if uefi secure boot is causing the problem...
Even with uefi secure boot it works.... It is a mistery to me what was the cause for the problem. Can anyone help determine the source of the problem?
Thanks for the time
