On every USB, short for Universal Serial Bus, there’s a metal seam on the bottom. That side almost always faces down when inserting the cable or drive.

thanks for the info. I thought i keep up well with tech but i had neither observed this nor was i aware of it.

my way till now was to always gently insert and if unsuccessful, reverse and insert
