Toshiba USB Drives Not Working

by on February 7, 2008

Q: I have a Toshiba Satellite running Windows XP Media Center Edition and I have four USB Ports but I seem to only be able to use one at a time. Regardless of which port I use it is always listed as the E:\ drive. I have tried using the “map network drive” function, but I’m not trying to map a network (and don’t have one set up), I just want to be able to use multiple USB ports at the same time. How might I set that up?

A: I have found numerous issues with USB ports on the Toshiba Satellite laptops. All of them seem to point to the BIOS driver. I have included a direct link to the BIOS updates. The only thing you need to do is select the model of the laptop and it will list the BIOS drivers when you follow the link.

Download the driver and install. It appears that a BIOS version 1.90 has fixed all previous cases of this exact issue. If you need further assistance please let me know.
