Why is my external hard drive not detected when I connect it through an external USB hub?

I’ve tried connecting my external hard drive, which I previously thought wasn’t working anymore, to an external USB hub, and wasn’t detected. It only made this beeping noise. Then I connected the hard drive to the laptop directly, and it was detected. Am I right in thinking that when I connected it to the external USB hub, it wasn’t receiving enough power?
