Faulty USB hub

Post by jeannotalpin » Wed May 08, 2019 2:53 pm

I have just received the New Link 4 Port USB Hub - UK 5V 2A (MMP-0182), in Order ID #259244, but it doesn't seem to work as expected.

When plugged to the raspberry Pi, (3B) my USB hard drive (powered by USB) is not detected (not even by the kernel ---Raspbian distribution). I tried on my Ubuntu laptop, and the USB drive is working fine when plugged directly to the computer but again is not detected when plugged to the powered USB hub. In fact not a single USB device is detected when connected to the powered USB hub (I tried a externally powered drive, a pen drive).
I would like a refund for the USB hub and the UK/EU plug adaptor.

Could you please confirm you have used the supplied USB-B cable to connect the HUB to the Pi/Laptop.

The USB-B cable supplied plugs into the USB port next to the power port on the HUB, the square looking port.
