PINEBOOK USB PORTS too SHort?
#1
Team,

I'm not new to PS's laptops or FOSS.

The idea of the Pinebook is awesome, the Pinebook Pro could be a game changer for many folks.

I have had my Pine book for more than a few weeks, but scheduling, holidays and life started to crowd out some other projects so I "queued it up" and have reached the point where I want to start writing on it.

Unfortunately I spend my daily hours in a hospital with stooped amounts of WIFI security, so far I cant get the Pinebook on the guest network, which Im ok with.

After all that's why God created USB memory keys right?

Sneaker-net!

Imagine my surprise when The USB key wouldn't go in less than 1/8 of an inch. Unsurprisingly the PB wont read it.

Tried 3 different keys, same thing. This started on the RIGHT port, because of AC, but one of them is pretty slim, so I moved it left.

same issue.

2 sandisk 32GB Duo's (USB(a) on one end Micro USB on th other) and a Sandisk Cruzer Glide 16GB

nothing really notable abouyt any of them

any ideas?

Im sure I haven't pushed them in as hard as I coiuld but just didn't think much more force should be needed.

Thanks

ok, I determined to try some more "energy" and a little sense.

The keys would go in a small way. but no further. Upon close examination I couldn't see ANYTHING in the port, but when I was watching it while inserting the key I noticed a slight movement in the 'port'

so I decided to use the key to press down slightly as I went in and voila, full insertion, then when I booted both keys were found just as I wanted!

ive just never seen one o tight and slightly out of line....
