I recently purchased this USB hub for use with my raspberry pi. However I've been having issues with it and my external hard drive. 

When I plug the drive in everything appears to be okay. The LED on the Hub lights to inform me that the system has recognized the device, the disk spins up, and the light on the drive itself turns on. However it never shows up in /dev/dev. 

When I check the log it appears that it has tried to mount, but always fails with something like "Cannot support over 500mA." My hub should be supplying about 900mA. Is this more likely a hardware or a software problem? Is there any way to force it? Thank you ahead of time for your help.

  • Is this more likely a hardware or a software problem?
  • Is there any way to force it?

EditEdit: I think this is a problem with the Hub. The RPi recognizes it, but to no avail. Here's my dmesg output.
