Hi!
I have a AmazonBasics 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub with 5V/2.5A power adapter but it doesn't work. Is there any drivers that I need to get for it?
Thanks.

no, if it doesn't work it doesn't work, buy a USB 2 hub.

Power adaptors do not need drivers. :)

Nor have I heard of drivers for USB hubs, even 3.0 ones.

Suggest you get a USB 2.0 hub.

BTW are you connecting the hub to a Zero?

There have been several reports of USB3 devices having issues with the RPi ZER0, as mahjongg stated use aMains Powered USB 2.0 Hub.
