Hi all. The problem is as stated. I've had this monitor for awhile and it works great for video. But recently I plumbed in the USB plug (from the monitor to the case) in order to get protable usb memory sticks to work on the side ports on the monitor. It's supposed to be able to read them, but doesn't, and drivers don't seem to exist for this monitor. I'm using the HDMI connection for Video, the power plug is firmly seated. There is an open 12V DC connection open, but it is tagged with an "audio" label. Is there something I'm missing, does anyone else have this monitor where the usb's work. It's just tiring climbing under my desk everytime clients give me memory sticks, and there's already too much on my desk top. Thanks for your help.
