Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I purchased a Targus USB 4-Port hub for use with my iMac 24" computer (new), using iMac OS 10.5.2. There is a power input connector on the hub, but no mention of power requirements on the package Please describe need for power if any -- am assuming it may be needed for Mac portables? And source for power supply if power is needed. Thanks, John Brougher 214-368-7242, email johnbdal@att.net

INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT
If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

Targus 4-Port not working


First off hubs don't support a lot of power hungry devices so you should be able to buy an optional power adapter for the hub on targus' site.
Second if your computer doesn't have any usb 3 ports then the hub will only operate at usb 2 speeds.

Your probably overloading the hub. Buy the power adapter.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO PUT THE USB CONNECTOR


If you only have one USB connector then you can purchase an USB hub which may have 4 or more ports (I suggest you get a powered USB hub). Then plug the hub into the computer's USB port and you now have several USB ports.

Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-port Hub


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).

One day the Belkin 7 port hub works the next day it doesn't


Your problems with the Belkin 7 port are not due to the Dell computer or the XP OS. To problem solve, select on USB port and stay with it, not the 2 top ports for your keyboard and mouse. 1. Plug in the power adapter, wiggle it about, widen the prongs, change outlets at the 120 v. end. 2. Use an simple hand magnifier and peer closely at the DC input plug and be positive that the center post and the minue side piece of metal if in firm constact with the plug. If cannot insure a firm fit, sligtly bend that tiny metal piece towards center. Option 2, use another adaptor with the precise voltage as the original and the idential pin that inserts into the module. 3. Use another or new USB connector.
This list does not imply a specific order of diagnosis. Your fundamental problem is the failure to delive DC power to the Belkin hub or to capture the hub to USB port signal. In a phrase, you gotta short somewhere.not an issue with the computer or the XP operating system. Bill Miller

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)

Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with Notebook Light


Hello,

I'm sorry to tell you your hub cannot be fixed. I have one just like it and have taken these things apart and repaired simple factory errors as loose wires and the such.

You should get yourself another Targus brand USB hub. They are good and quite reliable

Regards,
Worldvet.
