PC not recognizing HUB even though it is powered up and plugged into the PC.

I purchased a new 7 port high performance HUB for my new computer. I have plugged the device into an outlet, it powers up. I have plugged a few external hard drives into the HUB and plugged the HUB into my computer. I have went to File Explorer. My new computer is not recognizing the HUB or any of the drives? Suggestions?
