Yesterday, I finally received my new 15" MacBook Pro. I was a backer of the hyperdrive on Kickstarter, and it had been lying around waiting for the computer to match. Upon testing, I noticed that when I plug the unit in on the left hand side, it's not registering at all. The light doesn't come on, and a USB-drive connected to it doesn't do anything. This happens regardless of whether I enter it with the light facing towards me or away from me. On the right hand side, there is no problem at all.
I noticed that when entering the unit on the right, I can hear a small click when it snaps into place, while this is absent on the left. Connecting other devices on the left, though (like the charger, or a Belkin USB-C to ethernet adapter, works fine.
Any ideas on what might cause this?
