Extreme Portable 1TB works on some things - but not on my Dells

I bought the SSD mainly to archive my Dell XPS desktop and my new Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 laptop. However neither of those recognise the drive.

If I plug the SSD into my ancient Acer Aspire it works great. Also works just fine with my Samsung S10 phone.

I read somewhere that maybe the Dell USB ports weren’t providing enough power for the SSD and the advice was to get a powered USB extender, which I did. Still didn’t work.

I also have 256GB Sandisk USB stick, that works in every port on all machines, so they aren’t faulty presumably.

Any ideas what is going wrong please? :slightly_smiling_face:

Have found solution. Could see drive in Disk Management and decided to assign a drive letter to it - now shows up in ‘This PC’ and fully useable. :grinning:
