    Default Front USB ports won't power an external USB HD?

    I noticed this on my first build with a EX58-UD4P and dismissed it as a small hardware issue I was willing to overlook. My second build with the X58A-UD5 shows the same issue. While they're all read a thumb drive, none of my front panel USB ports (attached to the appropriate mobo headers) will recognize a small drive like a Passport or the like.

    Am I missing a setting somewhere? I believe I have all USB settings enabled in the BIOS.

    Thanks!

    Yes, both USB 1.0 and 2.0 are enabled. SATA Port0-3 Native Mode is Enabled (works at Native IDE Mode). This doesn't affect the USB ports, does it?

    How about Legacy USB Storage, or USB Storage Detect, that is what they were asking about

    No such setting or anything that looks similar in my BIOS as far as I can tell. Should I be looking somewhere else?
