What is correct AC adaptor for a Belkin USB Pocket Hub F5U007?
I have a Belkin USB Pocket Hub F5U007 and misplaced the AC power supply. It works fine for some devices but needs external power for others . I have several AC adaptors and one of them might be the proper one but I can't recall,so I hope someone knows what is the proper voltage/amperage to use without causing damage.

I have the same Macally hard drive enclosure and I misplaced my power supply also. I used an old IBM Thinkpad power supply. These are common and cheap. The Macally enclosure states 12V DC input, and the Thinkpad PS is rated at 16V but it works fine. The plug and polarity are correct.
First of all THe Belkin F5u237 is not a USB Drive. It is a USB Hub. If your running Windows XP it should see any device connected to the hub. If it dosen't see anything connected you may need to add the power supply to the hub.
I don't have the original power supply for my QU2RCT7 either, but most hubs use a 5v DC power adapter, typically with a 2A. (2 amp) rating. I'm using such an adapter with my QU2RCT7 and it works fine. Make sure the adapter you select is tip-positive (ie, the "+" terminal is the "tip," or center, of the connector).
When you get USB devices, some have their own power, like a plug-in hard drive, and some get their power from the host, like jump drives. My USB scanner gets power from the host, but if you plug it into a USB hub, it sucks the power from the host. Too many of those devices and the scanner fails, so they suggest you don't plug it into a hub.
Here's where the BUS and SELF switch come in. Somewhere, there is a 6v DC power supply that either came with your Belkin or is optional. If you use it, and put the switch on SELF, you don't have to worry about what you plug into the ports. If you don't care, or don't have the power supply, you can put the switch on BUS, but be aware that not all USB devices you plug into the hub will work, or a combination of two devices may not work.
The Belkin N1 Wireless USB 2.0 Network Adapter might be choosy with what motherboard it is attached to.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things stand or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
A couple of things:
1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)?
2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?;
3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0?
4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port?
Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard.
Good luck and kind regards.
what the adviser meant was your pc cannot provide enough power to the usb port to power the unit, assuming you have tried other ports and it still wont work; you will need to either purchase a pci usb 2.0 card adapter or purchase a mains powered usb hub and connect to this instead.
