First of all, why dont you tell us which filesystem those USB drives (maybe HDDs) use? If they are formatted for NTFS filesystem, the USB-C hub it's not at fault.

Google Chromecast with Google TV supports FAT32 filesystem only, at this moment, so, in order to be recognised by the Chromecast with Google TV device, the storage devices must be formatted in FAT32 filesystem, thus limiting the maximum usable file size to 4 GB.
