USB port

I tried plugging my new Canoscan Lide 400 into a usb 2.0 mini-hub & it won’t work. Do I need a usb 3.0 connection?

Greetings,

USB devices do not always work correctly when plugged into a hub (powered or unpowered).  Plug the device directly into a USB port on the motherboard or case for best results.

I wouldn’t be using a mini-hub if I had enough ports available. That is why I asked the question about a 2.0 versus a 3.0 Usb. Thanks!

Greetings,

The USB connection is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, but the device may not be detected or function as expected when its connected to a hub.
