Since I did the weekly upgrade I lost 2 USB

Post by --phoenix--as@ »

Hello

I did my weekly upgrade and I lost 2 USB
Now just 1 USB works
Could you help me to have again my 3 USB
Small additional precision the USB ports are well powered electrically by the PC. They do not seem to be recognized by the system and the devices do not mount automatically
Best Regards

Sorry, what exactly is a weekly upgrade? That doesn't sound familiar. Do you mean that you do your updates once a week?

I'm guessing weekly updates here. Do you have high level updates enabled in Update Manager?

And you'll need to post more system info in any case, always do this, copy/paste this to the terminal and copy/paste the text output here (no screenshots please):

Code: Select all

'...they do not seem to be recognized by the system...' So for Linux they simply don't exist? The command sudo lsblk will show you the block devices that Linux knows about.

o Software simply can't damage hardware, although it can encourage defective hardware to destroy itself. I suggest that for now you ignore the whole 'upgrade' thing as a red herring... USB has been in Linux for many years.

o Do these sticks work on another computer? If not, they may have been killed by a hardware defect in the machine you are using.

o Were these sticks packed in tamper-proof blister packs? Or might they be Lying Weasel (TM) fakes?
While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named "manual".

Sure, I can guess too, but I want to know what the OP meant. Guessing doesn't tell me that.

Have you tried to run disks or Gparted, and try to format them, or simply mount them ?
