It is NOT a good idea to have your email address in a post on the web. We who answer regularly here would not abuse using it, but you're extremely unlikely to get an email message from us, and any email address found on the web could be found by the bad guys or malware and cause you trouble.

You can Edit your own posts on this web site, except possibly the first one in a Topic after at least one Response has been posted, by clicking on the notepad icon at the left of the icons at the top of the body of your posts.

The following has references to things in Windows, but similar things apply to any operating system.....

Troubleshooting USB device problems including for flash drives, external drives, memory cards.
See Response 1:

If you have a desktop computer, Note that I answered a Topic on this site recently where a guy had an external drive, which does require the full 500ma, connected to a port on the back of a desktop case - it would not work properly when a webcam was in the port next to it, but it worked fine when the webcam was unplugged. Ports on the back of a desktop case often have two ports connected to the same USB controller module that are ports one above the other - you could try connecting the cable to one of those and leaving the other un-used.

"The volume uses the ntfs file system which is not supported by your system."

What is that - an error message you're getting?

In almost all cases, whatever the operating system....

- flash drives or memory cards with a 2gb capacity or less use FAT (FAT16) partitioning
- flash drives or memory cards with more than 2gb capacity use FAT32 partitioning
- NTFS partitioning is NOT normally used with flash drives or memory cards.

- NTFS partitioning is not recommended for any drive ( hard drive or flash drive, or memory card) of 4gb capacity or less, because, relatively, it uses up more drive space than FAT32 or FAT (FAT16). partitioning.
