I booted the Dell Studio XPS machine from a USB drive loaded with Ubuntu 16.04. I inserted multiple USB drives (one holding the OS was already there) and two others. They mounted within seconds and Nautilus displayed their contents when the drive was clicked on.

This did not happen in Ubuntu 18.04. A drive would not come up for 4+ minutes. And would not mount multiple USB drives.

HOWEVER, something hinky did happen. When multiple drives were mounted, the USB mouse would not function. So there is something wrong with the USB subsystem in that machine.

But, 16.04 definitely worked better than 18.04.
