Nice bit of kit I’ve gotta say. But when I connected my 750GB Maxtor OneTouch 4 to the either the front or rear USB port on the Live Hub, it wouldn’t detect it. Ok I thought, I’ve only just taken the Live Hub out of the box and set it up - let me just plug in my other ext. USB drive. Hey presto, no problem. Mmm… I then connected the Maxtor to my laptop and it tells me: If you want to use this drive, you need to format it first. So now all 750GB of my favorite movies on the Maxtor is gone. I know I could use some HDD data recovery software, but that’s not the point. The point is that just by plugging the Maxtor drive into the Live Hub, it got ‘wiped’.
Given that there’s no-turning-back once you plug in a drive to the Live Hub, this post is really an FYI.
