Toshiba pro laptopI recently had  a USB device that works fine in many laptops but for some reason woldn’t be picked up by a Toshiba Satellite Pro.

The LED on the device lit up and made the noise when you plug in a USB device but all software programs that I needed to use it on just didn’t recognised at all.

After weeks of going into MAPLIN asking if they have heard of this and trying many other similar devices on the laptop with no luck, a mate said have you tried a double USB cable as some USB sockets don’t give out the power needed for some devices.

double usb more powerI ordered one connected everything up and YES! It powered up and WAS recognised.

Only problem with the Toshiba is that it only came with 2 USB sockets #fail

A few moans and groans from me as a list to just say I’ve posted, as I’m stupidly busy and can’t think or focus on a decent blog post.

Moans and groans about things that bug me!

  • People that over take a lorry on a dualo carrige way half a mile before they are along side it and then sit at 57mph for 5 miles while slowly over taking it.
  • Projects that should take 2 months MAX but beyond my powers takes nearly 2 years!
  • Unplanned nights out ‘on a school night too’ and then rolling in at 6:30am
  • Puppies that think plants are toys and can be chewed
  • Not having enough hours in the day to take a few hours out to start or finish small personal projects
  • VodaFone charging £5 for using your iphone as a modem and thethering it to a laptop
  • How BP can spend billions on cleaning up an oil spill but would even think of spending that on renewable energy

Over and out – back soon.
