This is a strange problem and I was wondering if anyone has come across it or better still found a cure!
I frequently transfer data, photos and videos via an ext hdd from my office PC to the Lenovo E540 at home. I noticed that when I plug the ext hdd via usb (doesn.t matter if I use usb 3.0 port or 2.0 port), my recently added files do not show on the Lenovo. It says the disk needs to be scanned and after scanning and repair, it may not may not show the files. I thought maybe the old ext hdd is corrupt (Toshiba) or faulty. SO I bought a new Samsung ext hdd. Same problem.
Could it be a problem cos the Lenovo USB ports are live? Or need more power? I tried adjusting the power to USB via Power Mgt but no dice. Tried going to device manager - but nothing available to adjust there.
So any insight into this problem would be most helpful.
