Oh man. I can't help but feel horrible for the guy... I've had my fair share of complete and total losses, but generally they can be chalked up to something outside my control. To realize later he's happily (yet unknowingly) frying his drives would be... Something would get thrown at the basher residence!

You know what though? Most small USB hubs have these little jacks on them for power and most of them don't say on the hub what polarity and voltage they expect. Obviously, 5V would be a good plan, but what about the polarity?

Someone should invent "USB Protectors"
