Hey everyone.

I have had my first MacBook Pro for a few months now and love it.

I have a weird issue with one of the USB Ports though. The one next to the magnetic power adapter doesn't seem to want to run an external Hard Drive through it.

When I plug in an external hard drive it doesn't register on the Mac and I hear a faint clicking sound from the External Hard Drive. I have tried a couple of different hard drives, with the same effect.

Other devices work fine, such as my graphics table, keyboards, etc. I wonder if the port isn't supplying enough power for an external hard drive?

Is this normal? it's a bit annoying as I have a couple of external hard drives that I want to connect at the same time.


QUOTE Thanks
