Use any USB cord available at electronics stores that has a male on one end and a female on the other, obviously of the correct length.

I would suggest you going to radio shack and see if they have a cable for it. If they dont try looking on ebay , or look around on google for stores near your location for the cable. Or another suggestion would be go to best buy and ask them.

SOURCE: Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2

Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)

SOURCE: my Targus keeps disconnecting what is connected to

This USB hub is not powered by an AC adapter. Therefore, some devices that need more power will not work well on it. You don't mention what it is you are pluggin into it, but I suspect this may be your problem. Devices like webcams pull way too much to be on a hub without AC.

Did I solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

SOURCE: Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-port Hub

Some external USB hard drives, typically 3.5" drives, draw more power than a singlee USB port can provide through one port (the standard is max 5v, 500mA per port). Usually the drive will ship with a USB cable with 2 USB male connectors on one end, with one colored red. This is for you to plug into a second USB port to draw up to an additional 500mA power through the cable to help spin up your external hard drive.

Most USB hubs I have seen draw a maximum of 2A or less and the allow this to be drawn upon by the ports at up to 500mA per port. But a 7-port hub will not be able to provide full power to more than 4 ports, which is normally OK because few devices pull the full 500mA. Sometimes just reducing the number of items on that USB hub to 3 or 4 will solve your issue. And you cal also use a hub with its own power source to help meet the current demand for all 7 ports.

My brother and I have the AWE01us1 chill hub. Initially it worked fine. We have a wireless microsoft mouse and USB adapter is connected to 1 of the 4 USB ports. Occasionally the mouse stops working...


When I typed AWE01us1 chill hub in my search engine I came up with Targus as the manufacturer of the chill hup not the laptop. Before buying products I would read customer rates and comments on the products. My public library has a free link to consumer reports, or Amazon.com has product ratings.

I'm also getting mixed info regarding the mouse, is the mouse wireless, stopped working, and you somehow overrode the wireless with a USB cable and that stopped working. I'm assuming the mouse worked fine before the installation of the chill hub. If you read the reviews on Amazon, I'm seeing other types of USB problems. Try returning the chill hub and purchasing another brand. You may have to call customer support for the laptop. Let me know if this was helpful.

Can I connect my HP PSC1510 to my BT Homehub v1?


yes, you can. I have my printer connect to my hub and my desktop and I can print from my laptop wirelessly.
You will need your all in one connected via a printer or USB cable to a computer AND also connected to your hub. Then, go to the computer that is connected through a cable to the all in one. Your all in one should have some way to configure its IP address. I have my printer configured as 192.168.1.4 and it's plugged into the 4th port of my hub. Check if this works.

sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

Just want to upload my pictures to my computer!


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea
