I bought a PCMCIA 4 port USB hub for my dell latitude c610 laptop, and i was under the impression that the 32 bit cardbus port was powered. Am I wrong on this? or is there a way that I can fix it?

Any info would be appreciated.

What model USB hub is it, and what are you trying to connect that needs power?

Its just some generic one i bought off of ebay, it doesn't even have a model name or number. and it needs power to use a usb flash drive. it came with a little ac adapter, but that needs to be powered by USB as well, and the onboard USB port i have is broken. Not to mention the adapter doesn't even fit. But isn't a cardbus slot supposed to be powered in the first place?
