Little warning: USB is broken: USB 2.0/3.0 doesn't work on USB 1.0 by [email protected]
Sigh, As far as I know nobody made a video about how usb 2.0/3.0 external harddisks and usb sticks can't work on usb 1.0. The manufacturers kinda implicitely/indirectly mention this but not mentioning usb 1.0 backwards compatibility. So basically this means the USB STANDARD IS BROKEN and...

craptop died with hard drive, but works with SSD by [email protected]
I had a laptop working fine one day, then next it does not boot. The drive shows up in BIOS, but a disc diagnostic on CD cannot see it. Not many SATA options in BIOS, just a choice of performance or power saving mode. I put the hard drive into a desktop, and it booted and danced with white doves in...
