I have a lenovo Ideapad 700 laptop, and the two USB ports on the right side won't recognize my pendrive, but both will work with a mouse. (Update: they also work with a wifi adapter.)

The said ports are said to be usb 3.0 compatible, while the pendrive I'm trying is usb 2.0, but this shouldn't be an issue.

The single 2.0 port on the other side will work fine.

This is what I have in the device manager:


I also tried it under Linux, and it behaves similarly, so it isn't a driver issue.

Is this behavior intentional and if it is, how do I change it? I haven't found anything related in the BIOS settings.

Thanks in advance

Hm, thanks, indeed I haven't updated in a while, however it shouldn't be driver related, as 2 different op. systems use different drivers.

But as your answer suggests, it's not how it's supposed to work then. There's a scheduled system unfuck (reinstall/update) due in april, that includes updating the bios as well in case there's newer one available.

I won't do any major updates before that, because I'd have to do them again anyway. Is there a specific setting I could try until then?
