I think there is no need to replace any thing:

  • First check out if the drivers for USB hub properly installed. To check out you should go Device manager and see if there is any component with yellow mark. If yes then re-install driver it will fix your problem.

If above does not fix your problem, then let me know:
  • How you made test and come to know that USB ports or not working?
  • Which OS you are using?

Thanks

Try this fix, turn off your computer properly then unplug the computer from the wall socket, then press the power button and hold for about 3-5 seconds. Then plug your computer back in, restart the computer then wait for the boot to settle into Windows.
After doing those things plug in a USB device into the same port as you have been doing. It should work now, if it does not plug it into another port if it does not go to all of the ports and try them all if none of them work then you cable may have come loose on your board or it is a bad USB HUB on your computer it is obvious it is not the unit if it worked on another computer.
You will have to replace it or if it works on one of them then change out the bad one. Replace it! Or go and get a 4 port USB extension using just one of the USB ports. So that you will have more ports without the fix. Replace any worn parts or devices that do not work anymore. John

My mac won't recognize my wd hd anymore


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

Replacing it is expensive. However the player is bound to have some sort of usb port on it. You can buy some usb headphones for about £15 and use those.

My dynex usb hub is not working


You need to unplug the power adapter from the wall, and disconnect the usb cord from the PC/laptop for at least 30 seconds. Then plug everything back in. Apparently this model suffers from static electricity from time to time. I have this hub also and it works every time.
