it was plugged into the computer normally when it came apart, just plugged it in, moved the drive out of the way, and it went. I usually avoid that usb hub since its not powered and probably not even usb 2.0. I used to use it for stuff like mice and keyboards to free up some usb ports on my laptop a while back.
every other device works fine with all the ports on the computer, and my external works on none of the 10 or so usb ports on my computer without that hub. Its almost as if the mobo noticed something wrong with the drive and blacklisted it, but that Google search got me nowhere.
