Re: Cannot see USB HDD

Hi Bredman Thanks for the feedback - I think that the USB Hub provides too small a current to power the USB HDD. I've just bought another caddy from Amazon for £12.50 and it works a treat 8-) If anyone else has had any issues with USB HDD's with Hubs and have found a hub that meets their needs I'd l...

Cannot see USB HDD

Hi All I've just purchased a Toshiba USB HDD from Maplin (which you can view here: http://www.maplin.co.uk/320gb-toshiba-portable-hard-drive-627758 ).
