Root on usb not working (No USB power)

I want to have root on my usb drive so i followed the tutorial from JetsonHackNano. My problem is that the jetson nano can not find my usb drive at startup. In fact the led of the usb drive is off, there is no power on the usb port.
Does anybody have a solution?

Thank you in advance

Have you tried other USB drives?
What tutorial are you referring to?
At least dump some log here, please.

Drives take more power than the average device, so I also suggest trying a lower power device (such as an optical mouse you can see the light on or a keyboard) and see if that shows up. Always monitor “dmesg --follow” while plugging it in so you can see any log messages and report what shows up.
