Hi all. I bought a Plugable 7 port USB 3.0 hub (USB3-HUB7-81X) a few weeks ago to replace my old (non-Plugable) one, and it worked perfectly well. Just as expected, no problems. And I’m pretty sure one of the external hard drives was being read quicker - the computer is usb 2 but the hd in question is usb 3, so maybe more power? Anyway, that’s not the problem.
I formatted my laptop today (Windows 7 Home Prem 64bit, Sony Vaio somethingorother) and reinstalled Windows. The hub is now reading/working properly with;
WD 1tb HD
Samsung 1tb M3 HD (USB 3)
Samsung Super WriteMaster dvd writer
Sandisk Cruzer 4gb
Kubik SD card reader
When I plugged in my phone (Galaxy Nexus), it kind of worked - Windows installed 2/3 of the drivers. I can’t remember if it was an Android or Samsung driver it screwed up on.
And the following devices give an “unrecognised device” in Windows error;
Behringer UCA-202 (external sound card)
Logitech K300 (wired keyboard)
Any ideas why it might be screwing up on these two? It seems like it only wants to read storage devices, devices that would show up in My Computer.
I have tried different ports etc - they all respond the same way.
For the two devices that don’t work, the blue light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off permanently.
There is obviously power to the hub, as all other connected devices are working, and they all worked with it this morning before I formatted my computer.
Any ideas??? Thanks in advance!
