    Seven port usb hub only charge phone on windows 8, no mass storage

    I had bought a new 7 port usb hub from eBay. I had connected that to my Windows 8 laptop. First it was working well. I can attach multiple pen drive on the same. I can transfer files and move data. But later on I found that it is only detecting the phone for charging. It is not allowing me to move data.

    I want some help to resolve the problem. It is a new hub which is around a month old only. And now it is only charging phone. I had seen it gets really hot while using. I hope it is not damage.

    That is because it is not getting enough power for the Turing on the pen drive. At a time use only single device on that. Do not use multiple.

    If you check the port on desktop pc then it will work faster. In laptop the usb ports have restricted power usage. And due to lack of power the pen drive does not work. The same applicable for mobile phone also.

    Try to change the ports first. If it works then you can use it or you have to find a power adapter for the usb hub. Through this power adapter the usb hub is going to get more power and it will work fast.

    The hub is damage. I am also having the same kind of problem on a 10 port usb hub that came with power adapter. This type of usb hubs are having a very short life. They hardly work for a month or two. The one that I bought is a 2 month old and it has a power adapter. The speed of usb transfer was fast when it is connected to a power source. The adapter stopped working after three weeks. Then I started using it without power. Later on the port stopped working and now I can only charge phone. Data transfer is not working.
