Powered Hub & USB issues

I recently received my replacement Pineapple due to faulty wifi hardware (no other explanation why it wasn't working). I'm now experiencing USB issues that I hand't come across with the other Pineapple I had to return. I'm on a MK IV, 2.7.0 with my formatted USB per the directions and infusions installed.

The problem I'm experiencing is the USB drive, and also the USB hub, are recognized on the USB page, but they're not being read for some reason. I first tested this out with my Anker Astro 3 10000 mah battery. The Pineapple was plugged into the 9v plug and the HakShop usb hub was in the 5v usb plug, then my USB drive (16gb San Disk) was in the hub along with my Alfa 036H. The Pineapple recognized the hub, usb, and alfa at first, and my infusions worked and I could bring the Alfa up, but then it seemed the Pineapple stopped reading from the hub after only a minute or two. I tried to plug the usb directly into the Pineapple, but it wouldn't read it then either. If I restarted the Pineapple with the USB inserted, the Pineapple wouldn't boot up and the WPS button would blink until I took the USB out, then it would work properly. I then replaced the USB and it worked fine, but if I remove the USB at any point and reinsert it, it doesn't work.

I know this isn't a power issue because I've seen several other posts on the forums where others are using the same battery pack with the Pineapple, powered hub, and usb PLUS a Rasberry Pi. Plus my battery is fully charged.

I've also tested this while on DC power. If I remove the usb and try to plug it back into the Pineapple, it won't work. If the USB is in the Pineapple when booting, it won't boot properly until I unplug the USB. I've also tested the hub independantly with my PC. I powered the hub with the Anker and my computer recognized and read my usb with no problem.

I think this is an issue with the Pineapple's USB port. I'm really hoping I didn't get a second hardware-faulty Pineapple :( (and I 100% know & believe its not at all a HakShop issue; the hardware is all Alfa obviously and the HakShop has been absolutely great on customer support).

Would flashing to 2.7.1+ be a good resolution? I saw in the changelogs there was better USB reliablilty in the new releases. I'm just not sure why I'm now having a USB read issue when I didn't experience it with the other Pineapple.

Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank in advance!! :)

I flashed 2.7.4 and that fixed the error booting with a usb device installed, however it did not fix the issue where the USB is unrecognized when reinserted into a running Pineapple. That issue still exists and I'm not entirely sure why. Has anyone else experienced this, or a similar, issue? The Pineapple I returned didn't have a problem with removing and reinserting USBs, but this one does.

Not sure if my logs will help, but if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!

Unfortunately I haven't been able to fix this issue and no one has offered any suggestions on any of my posts for wifi problems or this power issue. I haven't been able to get the HakShop usb hub reliably working. I'm really disappointed in the Alfa hardware, which I'm attributing my issues to. I wish the hardware was half as good as the software and modules the community is developing! I think what the devs and community are contributing are amazing - it's just unfortunate the Alfa hardware isn't more reliable. This is my second Pineapple due to the first one's wifi burning out completely... I even bought two different internal antenna cables. Oh well, its a cheap router. The amazing software makes the hardware headaches worth it ;)
