    Is there such thing as a USB 3.0 mini to 2x USB 3.0 or 2.0 hub? I recently purchased a WD My Book 3.0 which only has one USB 3.0 connector in the back but I need to have two connections for it.

    This is what it looks like:

    You want to share a drive between two computers? You should have bought a NAS like QNAP or Synology.

    Or you'll need a USB switch or server. You cannot connect a single USB device to two separate computers.

    Didn't you post this same thread a couple days ago?

    Just unplug the harddrive from one machine when you need to connect it to the other. Or share out the drive. AFAIK you can't have a harddrive simultaniously connected to two computers using 1 port
