External USB Optical Disk Drive not detected.

During initial product testing it was documented that some USB External Optical Disk Drives (ODD) would not detect when connected to the USB 2.0 port of the legacy adapter.

Analysis of the issue concluded that the ODD required a higher amperage than the 1.2 Amps available via the legacy adapter.

If this issue is encountered, connect the USB device directly to the system and the drive will be detected.
