Harry was right; the Mini--unlike some of my earlier Macs--doesn't put enough current into 1 USB port , which is why the caddy had a Y cable. But between a 16-GB USB stick, a wireless-mouse tranceiver, and a keyboard, there was only 1 port free. Fortunately, I don't really need both the 16-GB and the hard disk simultaneously. And my Apple keyboard with 2 underpowered USB ports (which might have worked with the mouse?) got recycled the other day when too much ink wore off the plastic crossbar sheets and killed too many keys.

Anyhow, all better now, and thanks for all the advice!
