It's good to know that hub didn't work. Does it work in a regular Windows PC? Note there is an official recommendation to avoid USB3 hubs because of compatibility issues. Based on that wisdom, the Amazon branded USB2 hub I linked above should work fine.shugs81 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 15, 2018 5:50 pmAtolla 4 ports USB 3.0 Hub SuperSpeed Data Transmission with On Off Switch + 1 Charging Port with 15W(5V/3A) Powered Supply Adapter and 1M USB 3 Extension Cable https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01FS9Q01K/ ...

The only list of compatible hubs I could find are all old ones that you can get any more...
My thought is that any USB2 hub should work, assuming it provides sufficient power. You could also try using USB2 cables between your new hub and hard disks to see if that helps.shugs81 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 15, 2018 9:10 pmThe raid will be for data storage... Not planning media streaming or anything... May not even go to 6tb but its nice to have the option!
That hub isn't available in the UK... Which is typical... But any USB 2 hub should work?? I'll have a dig around my crap as I may have a spare...
Thanks for the tips... Should be enough to get me sorted!!
Did you have an opportunity to try using USB2 cables between the drives and the new hub?
