Re: Hidden USB port

glovebox - top box in there - got 'microsoft' sticker on it - 2 sockets, one's for us to plug a usb stick/media player in - the others for servicing the unit by dealer.

Re: Hidden USB port

As said its for dealer diagnostics / upgrades. I can however be used for power, I even used it as my primary port when the Microsoft one snapped off! .

Re: Hidden USB port

If its like my Sporting the second USB port is hidden behind a black plastic blanking cap next to the Windows Logo. Just get your nail under the bottom of it and it pulls off.

Re: Hidden USB port

Bought a Western Digital Passport 60GB Hard Disk, didn't work sadly, USB ports don't supply enough power. Works fine if u power it with an adpater, but looks messy having wires everywhere. Works fine with my 3rd gen ipod though.
