It not about Diagnosis, there is nothing 'wrong' in getting data backed 
up. Do I really need to google and paste links for clicking drives 

You are partly right in respect of power for USB1 or 2 devices but wrong 
in your perceptions.

Nobody has answered if the 'device' is USB1 or 2 (I suspect its 2) and 
what USB designation the two machines are. Historically it is a hardware 
and software combination failure of USB1 & 2 compatibility getting an 
external power lead will very likely *not* solve the readability issue.
