USB problem

Guest

I have a digital camera, scanner, printer, internet connection and other
portable devices that I use my usb hubs for. I have 2 2.0 hubs I think but it
doesn't matter. All devices work on three wires that I rotate. Scanner &
internet, printer on it's own, and the others on the other with the mini usb
for cameras and such. now, the problem is that if I have let's say a mp3
player connected, then stop the usb and remove the mp3 player and attach the
camera, the device doesn't come up. nothing at all comes up it doesn't even
register on xp and a connection to the usb. if I instantly take that out and
put it into the mp3 player again, it will detect the mp3 player.
Also, same cords, same camera and same person along with same software have
been successful.
I have been to other peoples houses and tried it and I just simply plug one
end to the computer, one end to the camera and no problem. I don't know why,
I checked for updates from windows, updated my usb drivers, tried
uninstalling then reinstalling, nothing has worked and it has been months and
months. Other people have used it on their computers and no problem witht he
camera itself at all. no problem with teh cords at all. nothing. on my
computer, I have tried everything, I even reinstalled windows xp, nothing.
Someone has to have a answer. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Desperation for
convenience or at least understanding of why it only does that on my
computer.

Hi, not 100% clear if you have the prob with the hubs or without - but
anyway I always say dont use hubs - just get an additional USB 2 card
(or two) for your PC ($15) so all devices connect directly. This cures
many issues I have seen.

If you have a laptop (you dont say) then get a PCMCIA USB card.

Shane, I seem to have the same problem with my newly acquired iRiver MP3
player. My computer with WXP does not recognise it as an external device. I
have done everything that the iRiver tech support suggested, the local agent
has found no fault with the device but my system just will not detect it.
Your problem might throw some light on mine.
Juris.

If I were you I'd try unplugging some of your usb items and see if your
memory stick works. I had to unplug my printer for my mp3 player to be
recognized by my computer. Your problem sounds very similar to my
experience. If the memory stick works with some things unplugged you may
want to get a powered usb hub. That's what finally worked for me.
