Hello,

I just bought a 4 port USB hub as I only have one usb port that works on my computer. When I plug the hub in and the plug my mouse into the hub it works fine but then as soon as I add my hard drives the mouse stops working and it says it can not recognize device plugged into the usb port. My touch pad doesn't work so i need this hub to do anything. My external hard drives work when plugged directly into the computer but will not work when plugged into the hub. Please help!

You probably need a powered hub (with its own power supply).

Good Luck
