Problem with Air & USB 3.0 hub
Hi all -
I'm a new Macbook Air owner and needed a USB 3 hub for all my stuff.
I bought one of these:
...which seemed best rated and reviewed and such. It works just fine except that it won't recognize my external HD (which is in a usb 3 enclosure). Everything else gets picked up. The drive shows up just fine plugged directly into the Mac.
Is there anything I can do to make this work or should I be shopping for another hub? If so, which do you recommend?

"This hub was used on the USB 3.0 port of a new MacBook Pro. It had a sporadic (defective) connection on Port-1. This port usually did not work, although on a rare occasion it did connect for a time, before dropping out and unmounting the drive with an error message. This presented the potential for file/data corruption."
Try other ports and best, return it and try another brand.
Lots of Apple,Sony and other gadgets.

Issues with USB 3 drives in general seem to be pretty common with these first lot of Macs that support it. Iíve all sorts of trouble trying to get either my MacBook Air or MacBook Pro Retina to mount my USB 3 drive with any regularity.

Same Hub, same problem
After my problems, Uspeed sent me —they proposed it— a brand new Hub : the responsible was the USB 3 cable. They just were great.
I also just received this Hub from Amazon, for my MacBook Air bought on november 2012, and it just doesn't work. I plugged several devices on it, on the following ports :
Then I changed ports : here are the results.
The first 3 ports seem to work badly, at least with USB 3 devices and on a MBA. Hope it helps.
