Dell XPS 9550 USB external hard drive not detected

  • Hi,

    I run Arch Linux up to date with latest bios.

    When I plug this hard drive to another desktop arch linux it's working.

    It seems that the laptop can't power enough to detect the disk. The disk is spinning.

    Here is the model of the enclosure: 

    ICY BOX IB-273STU3

    thanks for help

  • I think I found the problem... If the usb cable is to long, it's not working. With a little one, it's working ...
