    I`m trying to take some data from a 1TB Toshiba 2.5 external HDD to another 500GB Toshiba 2.5 external HDD through a 2.0 USB hub.
    If i connect the 2 drives at the one time to the usb hub 1 of them stops working but if i disconnect 1 and connect a 32GB thumb drive i can transfer to the thumb drive with no problem.
    Why wont the 2 Toshiba HDD`s work together?
