I have a 2018 Mini and a Sandisk flash drive. If I plug it directly into the mini and try to copy all the files off of it, it spontaneously fails and the drive’s status light keeps flashing blue at a constant pace.
If I plug it into a hub that’s plugged into the mini, no issues whatsoever.
It seems to me that the direct connect should be more reliable, not less.
Anybody have any wild theories as to why this might be the case?
