Make every effort to solve your doubt
+ Do you have any driver for the hub?
Our cateck Hubs are plug-and-play so there's no need for extra drivers, but we do recommend updating your USB controller’s drivers and firmware to the latest version. This ensures a smooth experience using any USB devices. To do this you should identify the brand of your USB controller then search online, or contact your PC/motherboard supplier directly.
+ Will the current requirement of my devices influence Cateck hub's performance?
For maximum performance, connected devices should not exceed the combined current of the output of hub. Otherwise, output current may become unstable or disconnect entirely. See some commonly used devices' general requirements below:
250G Hard drive – 600mA
4G Flash drive – 100mA
64G SSD – 400mA
100M Network adapter – 500mA
Keyboards and mice and other peripheral devices – 100mA (or less)
The ratings above are estimates only. Please check your specific device's ratings before connecting to the hub.
+ Devices are not being identified by my computer when connected to the USB hub
Devices are not being identified by my computer when connected to the USB hub, but they are being identified when connected directly to the computer. Why?
This problem may be the result of one of the following:
a. Insufficient power supply. Please connect the USB hub to a power source.
b. Compatibility issues between the motherboard and system. Please try refreshing the BIOS in the motherboard.
c. Incorrect insertion or unplugging. Do not unplug the device when transferring data in order to avoid damaging the chipset.
d. Improper driver installation. Under “Device Manager”, go to “Other Devices” and select “Universal Serial Bus Controllers”. If there are any yellow question or exclamation marks visible, uninstall the driver in “Device Manager”, then restart your computer. The driver will be reinstalled automatically.
