Hi, I got the 7-port USB3 hub as a Christmas present back in January. It worked well with the self-powered HDs I had in FL, but now I"m home and having some trouble with a USB-powered drive.
The small drive is a WD MyPassport USB3 USB-powered drive that’s also powerable from a USB2 port (so I know it’s undemanding :).
When I plug it in directly to my notebook’s USB3 port, it spins up and is recognized. When I plug it into the Plugable hub (plugged in with the 4A adapter), I hear it spin but it’s not recognized.
Is there something I should be doing, and/or is this is a known problem? I have a USB2 usb-powered drive but I hesitate to plug it into the hub until I check.
