I have a 10-port Plugable hub, and I have had problems with it for awhile. It worked okay at first, though it seems slow. I am running Windows 7 and have three hard drives and a few other devices like a webcam and mp3 player sync cable connected to it. the problem is that a drive will randomly disappear and I find out about this when get a message prompting me to re-format the drive. I find this very alarming, to say the least!
I have looked in Device Manager, and the hub is seen, but as an unknown device. Right now I have only one hard drive connected to it, and it is not recognized at all. I unplugged the drive’s power source and plugged it back in and it was recognized for a moment, then disappeared and I got the re-format message again.
Thanks in advance,
