I bought a new Apple Macbook Pro a few months ago. I love it but something happened a month into owning it. My USB drives stopped working! SO ANNOYING!
Since going back to work full-time, my schedule for things like the Apple Genius Bar – well yeah, no time for that. I am leaving tomorrow for San Francisco to attend #FordTrends. I cannot wait but hello – annoyed I want a working USB. After scouring the interwebs I found this fix for Macbook Pro USB drives that have stopped working. It worked for me – I sure hope it works for you.
It’s quite high-tech (nope, not at all.) Here’s what you do, you will be resetting the PRAM
- Restart your Macbook Pro
- Before?the Apple appears, press:?Command + Option + P + R
- Try using your USB ports, crossing fingers this works for you too!
YAY! Working USB ports. I can finally unload the 5000+ photos on my iPhone!
