But I’m not using Windows, either. I have a MacBook Pro, a Dell laptop running Linux and a desktop build-it-yourself running Linux. Even a single device (mouse or keyboard) plugged into it does not work on any platform. I can plug a 3.0 hub into these computers and the devices plugged into the hub are seen. How do I debug the problem?
‘‘However, if you still wish to use a storage device with the switch, there are two potential methods of doing so while drastically reducing the risk of data corruption’’
You-all left off a third option: throw the read-only switch.
