I own a 2016 Macbook Pro, purchased new about 5 months ago. It has suddenly stopped recognizing flash drives and external hard drives which are plugged into the USB-C ports. I have tested it with 5 different flash drives and 1 external drive, all of which worked fine the last time I used them on this computer. I've confirmed that both ports still work to charge the device. I considered that maybe the problem was that my USB-C adapter cable stopped working, but I think that is unlikely since the cable has been sitting on my desk literally untouched since the last time it worked. However, since I don't know anyone else who owns a device with these annoying USB-C ports, I cannot easily test whether the adapter cable is still working or not. I've tried the simple fixes like changing the settings in finder preferences and rebooting the computer several times. When I run Windows on my Mac using bootcamp the flash drives still do not appear. I would really appreciate any insights you might have on this problem or a possible solution. Thank you.
