A USB hub I was using (powered, four slots) stopped working a few days ago. It was ten years old, so I thought it just died -- if I plugged one hard drive directly into the Mac, it worked, so I figured it wasn't the USB slot, it was the hub. SoI got a new one (powered, seven slots). It worked for a couple days, and then this morning, the same thing is happening. The USB hub acts like it's not getting power, even though it's plugged in and the power strip is on. Other things plugged into the power strip are working. I can't understand where the problem is occurring. It's apparently not the hub itself, since two of them have behaved in the same way. Not the power strip. Not the Mac's USB slot. What's going on?
