HP Recommended
Example: EliteBook 850 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a new EliteBook 850 G5 and I purchased a 500GB SSD External Drive to use with it.  When I plug it into the USB C connection on the back right of the laptop, I get nothing.  No light or anything.  If I plug it into my docking station it works and if I use the older style USB port it works but nothing on the USB C port.  Any ideas as to why?

Thank you in advance.
