I mean, I certainly don't mind trying it and it wouldn't be any harder than pulling the cable to check the pins, but what's your line of thinking here? > 6) Try a slower transfer rate. Last night I bumped it down from 40MB/s to 20MB/s, disabled tagged queueing (which the adapter had enabled by default), and moved it to a different power lead.
