Maxtor one touch 4 mini- not connected! The single USB cable is in the Computer USB port.So far so good. When the second USB connector-with 2 cables is inserted to another Computer’s USB Port I start getting messages: USB device not recognized, one of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned……… To sume it up: connecting on it's own the single cable is O.K. Connecting the double cable on it's own gives the message. - The point is Maxtor is not connected yet, only the cables. C
