Default USB Issues?! - 12-12-2008, 10:53 PM

Hey guys,
loving my mini 9 running os x 10.5.4, waiting for my 32 gig drive to arrive soon hopefully. So here is something that took me far too long to realize was a problem:

my usb ports will only recognize a device if they are present when the device is turned on. its like a parallel port, only more frustrating, because it should be a plug and play technology. the only thing i can think of was to check to make sure i wasnt missing anything in the dell bios, and every option is currently enabled with the exception of the Boot Time Diag. Screen. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone smarter than me with a fix for this?

much appreciated,

Are you running iDeneb/iAtkos or did you use Type11/Retail?

I personally did the latter and haven't seen the issue you described.

He installed with the MSI Wind install. This is a known issue with that install. Do not use the MSIWind install disk on a Mini9, it's not a Wind.

Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED
