I’m trying to connext an older 500GB “my passport” to a raspberry pi, using a powered USB hub.
The passport won’t power up. It clicks. The led does light up.
I guess this is a power issue. My powered hub power supply is a meager 1A. It needs to power both the passport and the raspberry pi. The latter used ~750mA. I cannot figure out what are the passport requirements.
Any suggestions, ideas etc?
I’d also considered some kind of a Y cable that will power the passport, and connect data to the passport, but could not assert that such a cable exists (and I’m not into soldering).
