    I need a USB hub for my Macbook Pro.

    Question: When using a hub I once had, whenever I plugged certain usb things into it, the computer would say that it isn't powered enough. When I plugged it into the computer though, it worked.

    So what do I look for when looking for a USB Hub so that doesn't happen again..? Thanks!

    I have the Belkin hub pictured, but, does not see IPOD

    Hello,
    I have the powered hub in the picture, and it does not see my ipod. Printers, scanners, etc...all show up, but, not the ipod. I plug the ipod into the computer, and the mac sees the ipod just fine then. Anyone else see this?

    Which iPod? I had a 1st Gen Shuffle and a 2nd Gen Nano, and they (as well as the iPhone) charge & sync just fine through it.

    Really dumb question, but you are plugging the hub power in, right?
