Hey all, was hoping to get some answers :tazz:

This morning i went to buy a 4 port powered usb hub.. ( i only have 2 spare ports at the back of my PC) So i plugged it in, and it seemed to work
initially, but with only one of my USB devices which was plugged into
it: My ADSL modem.

When i unplugged the hub and replugged it back in, however, the hub
ceased to work. I got an error: "USB Device not Recognized. One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it."

Furthermore, when i try to re-connect my external USB hard-drive to
the original port at the back of my PC, i get the same error message.
However, i do not get this error message when plugging my USB printer
and ADSL modem into that same port.

Both the external harddrive and USB Hub have their own power supplies.

The hard drive was working through that port before i tried installing this hub. But now..well, it doesnt seem to like it anymore, as per that same error message. And of course the hub doesnt want to work.

Any help would be fantastic,

James
