    My Cube won't recognize my USB HD.
    It is formatted to NTFS so I can use large files.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    Also can this forum be changed to 'Cube'?

    Have you tried another USB drive with NTFS? Could be that there is not enough power IF its being powered over USB.

    okay here is what I found up to now. an iogear external HD that gives me tons of problems plugging it in to a normal PC. I plugged it to the side of the cube instead of the back and bam the system started to mount it. I plug it to the back of the cube and I get clicks as if its under powered. try the USB on the side instead.... let me know..

    I tried an old WD drive that has it's own PS. I'll look at the model # when I get home. I'm pretty sure I tried the side port. It is a USB 2.0 drive formatted to NTFS.

    I also tried a new WD My Passport (1.5TB) USB 3.0 drive. This one is powered through the USB connector. I tried the side port on the Cube. The blue light came on and it made noises, but didn't 'mount'. I only got a message from the cube when I unplugged it of 'Unknown USB device disconnected'. It seems to 'see' the drive in some respect. When hooked up to a computer, you can look at the USB hub properties in device manager to tell how much current it requires. (500mA) Besides my Win 7 computer, it was recognized by a router with a USB port (readyshare) and an old WD USB media player box. I have a hard time believing that it's a power issue. Has anyone seen a spec from Asus about the power delivered by the USB ports?
