    Do USB Hubs work with dock keyboard USB port?

    IF I want to plug in an external hard drive for example, IT may need 2 USB ports..

    OR if I want to plug in 2 xbox controllers.

    Anyone tested this?

    I answered your thread on this at TFF yesterday:

    USB hubs work, however....

    It will only mount one USB drive if you hook 2 up to the port. It is possible to mount the 2nd, but it involved rooting and a bunch of terminal commands.

    If your USB drive has 2 ports, it needs the 2nd one for power. Using a hub will not increase the power output from the single port unless it is a powered (plugged into the wall) USB port.

    It may work for xbox controllers, but you will have to test it out.
