Hello G2G Members :D I have a problem with my USB Drives. They always fail to connect to my computer, receiving the Device Failed To Connect Sound (Vista). I have done some tests on the ports I use to connect the Flash Drives, and the ports are working correctly. Can you please help me?

~Thank you.

Sounds like those drives are faulty, or more specifically the interface circuit board inside the drive enclosures is faulty. Especially since you've tested the same usb ports with other devices & they work okay. Can you try the problem drives on another computer? If they still won't connect on another PC it's almost certainly the drive's internal interfaces (circuit board) are faulty.
