Unrecognized usb devices

Attempted to expand one of the two usb ports on my XP desktop. (Both work.)
Connected a DVD player, a flash drive, a camera and left one port empty. None of the devices worked. The DVD player registered as an unknown device. The other ports registered as unused.

Re: unrecognized usb devices

If they work without the the expansion unit, the unit is not passing the power through. Many work this way. Some will work with external power.

Usb drive not recognised

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 installed a 4 port hub to speed up my file tranfer to a flash drive. The files transfer but not any faster then using the front usb ports. It is normal?

Yes. While the speed from the USB device to the USB hub may be faster (USB 2.0 protocol, rather than the slower USB 1.1 protocol), your hub is still connected to a USB 1.1 port on your computer.

Connected external usb drive to my computer which runs windows xp. Computer says drive is working properly, but drive does not appear on windows explorer. Also cannot assign drive letter, so cannot...

Win 2k, XP, Vista, and Win7 have a CONTROL PANEL applet called Administrative Tools - opening that there is a sub applet called Computer Management - and openint that there is another sub applet called Disk Management. In Disk Management you will usually find all of your drives (including those that don't show up in Windows Explorer). A new drive will probably be listed as drive 1 or something like that and shown as UNALLOCATED space. Right click that drive (my best advice on how to be sure its the right drive is to know the drive size .. ie 500 gb or 750 gb etc AND seeing that it is inactive) to activate it and to partition and format it.

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).

Iogear 4 port USB 2.0 HUB (Model GUH285) now working properly

I think it clearly states that the device is defective.... you need to call IOGEAR for RMA if its still under warranty

USB hub

Do you have Windows XP and at least Service pack 2 installed.
Service Pack 2 comes bundled with the neccessary drivers for USB 2.0
In device manager under the USB heading you must have:
PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller
In the list.

External Harddrive Ignorance...

I've seen this happen with hubs being connected to external hard drives before.

Do you have a free usb port on the back of your computer you can plug it into?

That should fix the problem.

When I plug a device into the hub, I can't locate it.

for usb hubs some of the port could fail any time so test all the ports to identify which one is working
