Just received the 10 port USB hub. My question is … I have the following attached:
- 3 External USB hard drives (2x250GB Iomega and 1x1TB WD My Book)
- Microsoft Natural Keyboard
- Logitech Trackball
- HTC Imagio smartphone
- Garmin nuvi 255W
I also will be attaching a Logitech c510 webcam, Casio CD Label Printer, and a Verizon Wireless USB Aircard.
Ok … the issue is (which I have seen with other USB hubs also), when I turn the computer off, the three hard drives do not power down. The two Iomega drives have a power button, but pressing them also will not shut down the power to the drives.
I disconnected the power cord from the hub, and the drives would still not power down (my other USB hub that the drives were connected to “allowed” all the drives to power down if I disconnected the AC). I then disconnected the USB cord to the hub from the computer. Still, no power down.
AND … the blue LED strip was still lit – even with the USB cord disconnected from the computer and the AC disconnected from the hub.
I really need to be able to power down these drives without having to unplug them each time I close up for the night. Any ideas?
Great product regardless. Thanks! Be well,
