thankyou its now working
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
Please remember any time you use a new device try to connect it to the port at the back of the pc as the usb ports gets inbuilt motherboard power and the device simply works fine.Front panel usb dont get enough power to make an external usb drive or device work.
