Can i use powered usb hub

I am having a problem with one of my usb ports on my laptop , it is very iffy and keeps disconnecting .
I connect my ns7 ii in the other usb which is ok
I have all my music on a external solid state hard drive , can i plug both the hard drive and the ns7 ii into a good quality usb powered hub????
