I am a prowd owner of an i7 book. Unfortunately I am having problems connecting my seagate 1TB slim harddrive . I connect the HD with the USB port in the keyboard.
After a long wait windows recognizes the HD. However, when trying to open files it freezes constantly.
Is there any solution for this probleem?
Thanks in advance!January 12, 2017 at 11:28 pm #60332

In my experience you’re better off using the usb3 cable delivered with the laptop, not only will it be much faster (the keyboard uses USB2 I thought), I also think it is better able to power the drive this way. Don’t ask me why but this is from personal experience with the tabletJanuary 13, 2017 at 5:48 am #60336

I am not sure what type of USB the Keyboard has. However connecting to the USB 3.0 port on the tablet is much faster. I am not sure this is going to resolve your issue though. File should open from either USB port.January 13, 2017 at 6:51 am #60337

Did you try using the HDD on other laptop/PC?
I always connect my 1TB seagate on the keyboard USB and never have any problem.January 16, 2017 at 2:13 pm #60506
Thank you for the replies!
Ill try with the connector cable that came with the tablet and see if that works.
I can use the HDD without any problems on other laptops..January 18, 2017 at 4:27 am #60597

If your HDD has a DC in port, try using it to add power. I don’t think power is the problem, but it’s worth a shot.January 18, 2017 at 10:28 am #60616

I just used pen drivers, they work well both on the keyboard or using the provided cable.January 24, 2017 at 6:14 pm #60869
Update: I hadn’t thought about using the connector cable but I tried.. and it works perfectly!
