USB Hub for multiple WD My Passports

Thu Jan 23, 2014 10:57 pm

Hi,

I have some 2TB My Passport drives and a Raspberry Pi. Now I'd like to use the Pi as a fileserver with at least 4 of these disks.
I know that there's a list with compatible peripherals but I also know, that the My Passport drives won't work with some of the powered usb hubs..

And here's my question:
Is there anybody with a working setup like this? Which hub will actually work? I don't need a theoretical answer, but a recommendation by someone who actually knows which hub can handle this job ;)

Thanks :)

I currently have a similar setup running, however not with WD passports... (I'm using generic USB-Enclosures bought without disks)

One of the things I would recommend looking into is the output of the adapter that comes with the Hub (I'm using a Trust 7-port powered usb hub, which has a 2A adapter).
