    I have the D-Link USB 2.0 hub and get "low power, plug your USB device into a power supply" notice when I plug my SanDisk MiniCruzer into the hub. The only way to use the MiniCruzer is to plug it directly into my Mac Mini (I need to use both USB hubs). Any help woud be greatly appreciated! Thanks! (I plan on buying an M-Audio 49e and I am expecting the same problem to occur with it, so I wish to avoid it!).

    The hub needs to be a powered hub (ie one with its own power supply).

    The USB stick is drawing enough power that the hub can't give it all that it needs.

    The Mini on the other hand, can provide enough power.

    Plug in your hub to an A/C adapter... then it will be able to give the USB stick all the power it needs.

    D-Link USB Powered Hub...worthless crap

    It cost $30 to inquire as to why the F____ the USB powered hub does not work. Mine has the same problems as does the netgear.
    None of these damn things work.
    We should have "Geek Trials" and shoot the Geeks who designed stuff we buy that does not work for Mac.
