Hello I have used up all available USB portsin my Desk Top and I want to plug in a cable for my laptop to transfer data. I think I need a 'daisy hub' but I am not sure of the correct definition. Could some one advise me please and are there different types of daisy hubs. Do you get what you pay for or are they all similar. Any comments will be very useful Thank you gel
A powered USB hub usually consists of four USB sockets with a USB plug to connect to one existing socket.
You can therefore use it as four seperate connections. The idea of using a powered hub, is to provide enough power via a special mains adapter to enanable it to handle the extra current required, as power from USB sockets themselves is resticted to about 500 ma
Hello Thanks for your help. I am preparing the ground for delivery of a laptop(my first) which will be delivered this week. I am hoping ,if it is possible, to transefer data from my desk top to the laptop and visa versa.How I do it I am sure will be a request for info from this furum on another day (when I am coversant with the workings of the Lap top. But I have presumed that I shall need a USB port and hence my query regarding a USB hub. Spare slots in mother boards 'spuds' frightens me some what and 'reconfiguring my Bios' is a little unnerving'Stuartli' but I expect I will survive with help of the forum. Thank you very much
