Are multiple USB ports meant for attaching specific types of external devices?
Want to know the importance of multiple USB ports on your Laptop or PC? Confused where to connect the external devices among the multiple ports? Check out this Ask Experts thread to know more.
Most laptops nowadays have more than one USB port. Mine has 2 ports on the left side and one on the right side. I would like to know if certain external devices should be put in specific ports, like a pen drive and external hard drive on the left side and a camera should be plugged in the right side. Also, a service engineer had once told me that if I attach the card reading device in a particular port, then each time after that I should put it in that slot only. Why is this so?
