There _was_ a problem with older firmware, now fixed, which combined
with certain USB flash drives (with embedded hubs), would cause them
not to work in _one_ port on XO-1 or XO-1.5.

Having reflashed to 13.2.0 with external power supplied, that problem
should have gone.

If not, you may have a damaged USB flash drive or port.
