Hi BDAqua - really appreciate your help in sorting this out - forgot to ask do you think the USB port on my powerpc G4 is so weak in terms of power because of the battery on the G4 ? - do you think I ahould replace it ? thanks again for your help again - Jayas.

The Battery should not affect the USB power, but it's curious about the 2.1 Amp port on the Hub.
Personally, I don't think the old USB standard was ever meant to drive a Bus powered drive, startup draw of a Hard Drive is really hoping for a lot from 500 mA.
Even their own Power Adapters are at least 1.5 Amps!
PS. I'm very glad I could help.

Hi BDAqua - thanks for the super quick reply. I'll try the 2.1 amp port again just to double check. Read the link and you are 100 % right - thanks again for all your help - really really appreciated it - thanks Jayas.
