I am trying to connect some USB 3.0 HDD's up to a Via Labs USB 3.0 Hub. When I type 'lsusb', it only lists the hub and not the devices. If I plug in a USB 2.0 device to the hub, it can be recognized. If I plug the USB 3.0 device directly into the system, it is also recognized.
In further investigating, I typed 'lsusb -v' and found that the USB 3.0 part of the hub has an error - under where the Hub Descriptor information is supposed to be, it says "** UNRECOGNIZED: 06 30 00 00 02 00 can't get hub descriptor: Broken Pipe"
So that explains why the drive can't be recognized. My question is: Is this a Linux problem or a Via Labs problem? I am running Slackware 13.1. BTW - The same hub works fine under Windows.
Is there somewhere on the system I can make Linux recognize this properly?
Thanks and best regards,
