Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Why does my iOmega LPHD-UP USB external HD not work with 7-Port USB hub? Is it the 500mV limitation per port or something else? Works fine if plugged directly into the laptops only USB port.


Answers :

You got it! may need to get a 'powered' usb hub. another 'wall wart!', but will probably allow use of hub to power usb hdd!
good luck!
