Hi friends!

I hope you are all well...

Pls, I have a computer with two 3.0 cables (3 m. long) and a "USB 3.0 Hub" powered by 5V (volts) and 3A (amps). The problem is that when I plug in the HUB and connect a USB hard drive to it, it starts to connect and disconnect continuously. A headache. I tried connecting a simple pendrive and it works fine, but of course, a pendrive uses a very small amount of power.

Could the cable be a problem ?

THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Honestly, it sounds like the USB hub isn't actually using the power from the adapter and is instead relying on bus power. Is it possible the power brick is simply bad, and unknown to you the whole hub has simply been bus powered up until this point?
