I have an external monitor with USB ports which is connected via mini DVI cable to my laptop and additionally via usb for the hub. An external hard drive is connected to this monitor. Normally, when I connect my mac to the monitor, I first connect the mini DVI cable so the monitor switches on, as well as the USB hub within the monitor. Then I connect my USB cable. My problem is, the Harddrive is not recognised by the system. I have to unplug and replug the disk so it gets mounted.
Is there something I can do about this?
