Usb Keyboard Or Usb Hub Not Installing

This started when we switched usb keyboards. We were using a chester creek usb keyboard without any problems. We bought a new chester creek keyboard and plugged it in, the found new hardware wizard opened and looked for a driver but was unable to find one. So we plugged the old keyboard back in and the same thing happened. So now both keyboard don't work in the usb slots. They both work fine using an usb to ps/2 adapter. Also our usb hub is now not installing either. The same thing happens, found new hardware wizard opens, but is unable to find a driver. Everything else works in the usb slots, flash drives, headphones, hard drives. Only the usb keyboards and usb hubs are not working. They show up as other devices in device manager. Both the keyboard and hub work fine on other computers. This computer is about five years old and running xp sp3 with all updates installed.

Usb Hub To Boost Signal Quality Of Usb Extension Cables

I am thinking of getting an usb hub to boost the signal quality of some usb extension cables and was just wondering, if the hub would introduce lag and how much current the psu must generate to stay within the specs. The current extension cables are 4, 5 m long and the signal is too weak to power mouse and keyboard simultaneously, sometimes. Recommendations are also welcome, as some manufacters dont bother to include the specs on their homepages. I am looking for an 4-port hub around 20 euro.

Mounting A Usb 2.0 Mass Storage Into Usb 1.0 Ehci Hub

I have two usb 1. 0 ehci hubs (with 2 channels every one)in my machine. Their speed is 12 mb/s. My os is linux fedora core 1. 0. I connected into it an usb 1. 0 mass storage, so i can mount it (via that command #mount /mnt/flash/). Recently, i connected into it an usb 2. 0 mass storage, but i can't mount it. I typed:

#Mount /mnt/flash/
Mount: you must specify the file system type. I formatted my usb mass storage to fat32, and i taped:

#Mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash/
Mount: fs type incorrect, incorrect option, incorrect superbloc in /dev/sda1, or too many file systems are mounted. In /etc/fstab, i found that line when i connect the mass storage:

/Dev/sda1/mnt/flash auto noauto, owner, kudzu 0 0

Do you think there is an incompatibility between usb 1. 0 ehci hubs && usb 2. 0 mass storage? Is there any solution(a driver to install, for example)?

Usb Root Hub Deleted, Now None Of The Usb Devices Work

My son was installing some canon software for his new canon powershot a530 camera. The computer would recognize the camera but couldn't load the drivers for some reason. He then decided he should remove some of the current usb devices using the device manager. He stated he deleted three or four items titled "usb root hub" now none of the usb devices i own work (two hp printers and a maxtor external drive). Also every time i start the computer the new hardware found wizard pops up five times. Each time the hardware is "unknown". When i look at the device manager i see a yellow "?" Next to "other devices" and five yellow "?"S intended to other devices all called "unknown device". Anyone have any ideas?

Does Usb Hub Slowing Down The Usb Port ?

Say if i install usb key (errr. , For vista's ready boost) via usb hub, does it make that port slower than if i install without usb hub. I know, i can put it on empty slot behind my pc, but i like to see it blinking when data access happen on the usb key.

Usb Hub Using A Usb Y-cable For More Power

I use a laptop that only has 3 usb ports, and i like using a corded mouse and an external hard drive that takes up the other 2 ports. Since a usb y-cable provides more power, could i use that to hook into the hub?

I want to hook one of these:

Into one of these:

Would that provide more power to the hub, without having to use the ac adapter with the hub?

I really wish someone made a simple hub like this with 2 plugs:

Usb Hub Issue

I have a usb hub that won't even power my 2. 5 ext hdd and if it has too many devices plugged in, it just won't work. Would buying a usb hub w/ a power cable like the following this rose-will fix this problem? (Any other recommendations?)

And, wouldn't data transfer be a little slower using a usb hub as opposed to directly plugging the ext hard drive into the mobo?

Powered Usb Hub

Since using the front usb ports with ich5r fried my mobo, i decided to invest in a powered hub to remove the risk of it happening again. So i went down to maplin (uk electronics store, kind of like radio shack combined with a consumer electronics store. ) And picked up a 7 power, powered, all singing all dancing hub. Nice black look, but that's besides the point. Now i've only just noticed this (with having only re-assembled my rig yesterday and only turned it off twice since then). But because the hub is externally powered, it's force feeding the computer, causing the front power led to remain on (and also the power led on my wireless keyboard receiver dongle). Now i'm no trained technician (yet anyway ) but it really shouldn't be doing this. Worst part is i can't turn back on with the hub plugged for some reason. . Frustrating. Edit: oh yeh, and i found the manufacturer's website. Not much to go on. They have one generic pdf (mine hub 40 btw) that covers the sales pitch for all their hubs, but nothing detailed .

7 Port Powered Usb Hub

I've been trying to find a good powered usb 2. 0 7 port hub. Everything i find either has some strange shape that looks, for lack of a better word, stupid or has all the ports on the front of the hub. All i'm looking for is a normal shaped hub (square box) with all ports (including power) on the back. The only thing i want on the front are indicator lights or nothing. Years ago i used to see them all the time but now they all have some or all ports on the front or are some funky shape. I need it to be powered since i'll be plugging a few items into it that obtain their power from the usb port (g15, g9, n52te, etc. ). I also have a usb mic but its usb 1. 1 and would need a hub where having a 1. 1 device plugged in won't affect the high speed of the 2. 0 devices (if they even make such a hub). I have a few other items but they are just data or have their own external power source (ups link to the pc etc. ).

Can Usb Hub Works As A Splitter ?

I got the assumption that a usb hub would work as a splitter of some sort. I purchased a hub and hooked up my external hdd to my pc and the other end to my x360. I figured i could add files and watch them on the x360 without taking the cord out and keep going back and forth. So am i wrong? Or this ain't possible?

Usb Hub Causing Pc Crash

I recently bought a berklin in desk usb hub, but when i have it connected to my pc and i reboot or power up my pc my asus p5k-premium board says oc failed hit f1 to change settings. Why is this i wonder, my oc is 100% stable and i have the latest mobo bios. I asked btarunr considering he'd prob have a good scoop on what is gong on off the top of his head, this is what he said:

"Usb hubs tend to load a single usb post beyond 500ma and brings in instability. Usb power is at the expense of the mobo's power phase. It's possible that it affects oc. Set usb as hispeed, disable any power mgmt feature in the bios for starters. " Well here are some of the auto settings that i do not know what values are safe to put in. My usb hub uses a wall outlet for some of its power, ive tried with it unplugged and it didnt fix the problem. I know my oc is orthos stable though @ 2. 8ghz 400fsb x7.

Internal Usb Splitter / Hub

I am currently looking for something that i don't know if it exists. I am looking for an internal (inside your computer case) usb hub. I am looking for one because my motherboard has 2 ports (supports 4 usb plugs) but i have 6 usb ports. 2 on my case, and 4 one a 3. 5 inch bay. So currently i have the 2 on my case plugged into one of the ports, and 2 ports from the 4 port hub plugged into the other. I am looking for something that will enable me to plug all 3 plugs into the motherboard. (One plugged directly in and then a splitter/hub for the other 2)

Does anyone have any information on this?

On my motherboard the port has 9 pins this is what it looks like. O = one pin

Xbox 360 Usb Hub

Anyway, the xbox 360:

-Usb ports, hubs, controllers-
-Supports usb keyboards. Just plug your usb keyboard to the xbox 360, and type away (be it to fill in data in the dashboard, to send messages to other players, or to use in psu, any usb keyboard will work with the xbox 360)

-Supports 4 wired controllers. You just need to use a usb hub (all the usb stuff can be connected to usb hubs, including the webcam, wireless adapter, etc)

-Only supports wireless microsoft controllers. That means we won't see wireless guitars for guitar hero ii, or any other similar stuff, other than the ms wireless products (wireless wheel, controller and communicator)

-You can keep charging your controllers with your xbox 360 turned off. Just turn off the console like you would any other time (with your controllers already connected), and after 2 or 3 seconds your controllers should light up, and the charging leds should turn up again (the console will keep making a very low "hum", despite all the leds being turned off). When the controllers are charged the console will totally shut off. -The 360 doesn't read usb hdds that are formatted for ntfs. Which is a bummer if you have hd downloads, as they can typically exceed the 4gb file size limit of fat32. [By bivith]

-You can use your wired xbox 360 controller on your windows xp pc. -Dashboard tricks-
-Supports custom dashboard background images. Go to your media blade, select pictures, select either your pc (with shared pictures via media connect) or a usb device, place the cursor over the picture you wish to put in the background, and press x (do not select the picture, you need to be on the directory screen). You cannot put different pictures in different blades however. -You can turn on the console remotely by pressing the guide button or the start button on the controller for 2 or 3 seconds. You can also turn it off remotely, by pressing the guide button for 5 seconds, where a new menu will pop up, asking you if you want to turn off the console or turn off the wireless controller. -Pressing the guide button when the notification for friend logging on appears will bring up their gamer-card, allowing you to message or invite them to your game. [By tiger_walts] this tip works with any notification pop up btw. Pressing when you win an achievement shows the achievement screen when you receive a message shows you the message, etc. -You can disable communication from anyone who is not on your friends list. It's hidden away in a live options menu accessed by clicking on the gamer-card. It can be found by clicking on your gamer-card in any of the blades that display it. Then click account management > privacy settings > communications - from there you can choose everyone / friends only / blocked. [By bravearse]

-Media streaming-
-Only supports wmv movie streaming from your pc (both in media center, and media connect), and does not support divx, mpeg, mov, xvid, avi, etc. -You can skip your custom soundtracks while playing games by pressing the skip button on the remote (both remotes work, the limited edition, and the media one), no need to go to the guide menu. [Windows mce remotes, or even a universal remote if you find the codes work as well; thanks valver]

-If you have a mac you can still stream content to your 360 (not video) using: [by vroom!]

-The 360 recognizes wmp and m3u play-list files, use these to create play-lists quicker and easier than with the 360's interface. [By tiger_walts & nickthegun] this is very handy. Create a play-list of the mp3s on your pc, put the folder with the play-list shared on the media connect, and that play-list should show up under play-lists in your music player screen. -If you're ripping music to your 360 hdd, it does support cddb lookups so you don't have to enter song titles manually. [By furbs]

-Hardware problems-
-Don't use a cheap surge protector/plug strip. It'll underfeed your xbox 360, and it might result in occasional crashes. -Don't ever move your xbox 360 with a disk inside. It might scratch the disk or damage the lens. Don't put it standing or lying down either, with a disk inside, much less while the console is turned on. -Avoid carpets and such fabrics. Lay the console on top of cold materials (a wood desk, stone floor, etc). Never on top of carpets because these will heat up the console considerably. Don't stack the xbox on top of other electronic devices. This goes to every electronic device actually. Avoid carpets and such, and stacking them up is usually not a good idea (specially hot stuff like the xbox 360, or a ps3).

Usb Root Hub Error

I have xp home on a laptop (amd 2400 i think). Today i've been receiving a windows error warning of a power surge on the usb hub. This warning continues to pop up (and block document windows) even after removing all usb devices. If i click on the error, i get a dialog box reporting that one usb device is drawing too much power through the hub, and it lists 5 usb ports with one highlighted as
The problem device. It instructs me to remove the device and click the reset button. I have three problems with this error. First, from the dialog box there's little way for me to determine which physical usb port is the problem, so i have to unplug all devices. Second, doing as instructed (disconnecting the devices and clicking reset) doesn't clear up the problem, as i immediately get another warning. Finally, and most importantly, i don't have a 5 port usb hub attached to the computer. The only usb is the three ports supplied by the manufacturer, attached to the motherboard. These ports appear to be working just fine, whether or not i disconnect and reset. The error seems to be related to a hub which i don't have. What could cause this error to pop-up despite my having no hub attached? How can i stop the error?

What's even more odd is that over the last few minutes the error has stopped despite my having done nothing about it (i no longer am getting the power surge on usb hub error).

Usb Works With Keyboard And Mouse But Won't Read Usb Stick

Hello guys, i've this problem since some time. My keyboard and mouse work properly but the system seems to fail in reading usb sticks. They do appear in my computer but when i access them it either says " f: is not accessible. Impossible to satisfy your demand because of peripheral error e/s ", or, it allows me to enter it but there are no files listed. The stick works ok in other machines and there are files on it. It also takes a long time for the system to see the stick. I did have some viruses but now the comp is clean as i ran all the programs suggested in networking&security section of this forum. Help!

How Many Mp3 Players That Could Charge From A Usb Hub ?

I work at a library and we are going to be checking out mp3 players to patrons. When they come back we will need to charge them. I was thinking about getting a usb hub and connecting it to a computer. Would there be a limit to how many mp3 players (creative zen) that could charge from a usb hub? Also, i am looking for a hub with lots of ports. 7 ports seem common but i found a 13 port one. Any larger ones out there?

Usb Root Hub Driver Problem

I got a pci usb card yesterday and installed it and all the drivers that came with it. I booted up the computer today and when it loads up, none of my usb devices are booting up. It is asking for a usb root hub driver. I have a dell dimension desktop that didnt come with any ps/2 ports, so the only thing i can use is a usb keyboard/mouse. Is there a way that i can get my usb devices to work again.

How Many Devices Can Connect To Usb Root Hub ?

How many devices can connect to a usb root hub? I think your asking how many device your usb hub can handle. If that is so, then it can handle 127 devices. Though your computer may only have 1, the controller may tell your os to have four or more to enable smoother processing from your north-bridge to your cpu.

Usb Hub For Scanners, External Hard Drives

I've had some bad luck with usb hubs in the past, but haven't used one in quite some time. I just got a new laptop and will be hooking up several usb items - scanners, external hard drives, cell phone, etc. I want something that has a power adapter as things such as the scanner and hard drives are hub-powered. I would prefer a 7-port model, as 4 will not be enough.

Can A Bad Usb Hub Damage Connected Devices ?

Can a bad, low quality, and/or inexpensive usb hub damage connected devices? Or as long as it works, then it's fine? Since it is supposed to only relay the connection and not send any signals etc. Of its own, so i was just wondering about this.

Input Stutter Caused By Monitor Usb Hub

I've been playing crysis warhead and left4dead. I have a dell 24" with built-in card reader and usb hub. I hooked the monitor usb to system usb so that i could just plugin my keyboard and mouse into it instead of the system underneath my desk. I have an apple keyboard and a razer deathadder mouse. While playing crysis, everything is fine, smooth as butter, no problems. But, in left4dead, i started noticing that my input (kb/mouse) would start to lag/stutter after playing for about 15-20 mins. Nothing else would stutter, fps never dipped, game itself never lagged. I would just get input lag/stutter for about a second. Then it would return to normal (if i moved the mouse during the stutter, the crosshair would jump to where it was supposed to be). I initially thought it may be overheating, or perhaps an unstable overclock, but it made no sense as crysis was working just fine. Then i thought it may have been a bad hdd, but i ran several test and everything was fine. I came to the conclusion that it could be the monitor's usb hub. So, i plugged the kb/mouse directly into the system, and now everything appears to be fine. No lag, no stutter. The weirdest thing about this is that the latest time that it happened, my audio also started to lag and stutter, and eventually the game crapped out. All is well now, but why would this happen as a result of a usb hub, and why in only one game? I don't understand. Anyone care to shed some light?

Usb Device Has Exceeded The Power Limits Of Its Hub Port

Okay! So, i never had a problem with this before but now i do! I got a new camera and everytime i plug it in to the usb port to download my pictures to my computer, it takes a couple tries before the program opens! And i had some stuff on my old camera that i wanted to put on, and everytime i plug it into the usb port i get this message!

"A usb device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port" what exactly does that mean? And then it tells me to unplug everything and press reset! I do, but it still does the same thing! It worked fine before so i don't know what's wrong! The camera is an olympus and my new one is a kodak! I did accidentally plug the kodak cable into the olympus, because they look the same! And it kind of fit actually! It might have caused some damage, but i don't know if that has anything to do with it or not! I even tried unplugging everything, and plugging it back in! Should i get a new usb port, or is there a different problem! Because i don't wanna waist any money if this is a simple problem that can be fixed!

Usb Card Reader Installing Problems

I am having problems installing a new usb card reader. I currently have an 8 in 1 card reader installed and connected to one of my usb 2 ports. Purchase of a new camera with a different type of memory card meant my current reader was no longer suitable. Therefore i got a 23 in 1 card reader to cover all possible options. I thought installing the new reader would be just a matter on unplugging the old reader and plugging the new one in. However although windows xp detects the new device it gets so far and then say "problem installing device it may not work properly". When you you go into control panel there is an ! Against usb mass storage device and its says "device not working properly (code 10)". If i plug the old reader back in it works fine. Do you think there is a problem with the new card reader or just a problem with the way i am installing the new reader. For example should i uninstall the old reader, then shut down xp before installing the new reader? Would this make a difference? Or is there a different fail proof installation procedure i could try? There are no other spare usb ports for me to try using instead, system windows xp sp2, pentium iii 800.

Installing Windows 7 Via Usb Flash Drive

Heres a quick, easy way to make your usb thumb / flash drive capable of installing windows 7, cutting out the need for a disc! First off, you need a 4gb or higher capacity flash drive - ill be using my 8gb freecom drive, as its the largest i own. So, to kick things off, we need to open the command line, or cmd.exe for vista users using the search feature. Then we need to start up diskpart, simply by typing "diskpart" and hitting enter: we will the need to find the discs available to be used by diskpart - to do this we type "list disk", so now we have a table of available drives - disc 0 in my case is my samsung spinpoint and disc 2 my thumb drive - you will need to figure out which is your usb drive by the size table. Next, we need to select that disc by typing "select disc #" - the hash being the number of your drive - in my case, i would enter "select disc 2". Then, after the drive is selected, we need to type "clean", diskpart will scrub the chosen drive clean for us, ready for the windows install files. However, before we learn to run we must crawl - to do this we simply type "create partition primary" - this will format the disc, making it usable for our purpose. We then enter "active", and heres the bit that requires a bit of typing. You will now need to type "format fs=fat32 quick" to format the drive as fat32, making it bootable so that we can install our os from it, our second to last step simply involves typing "assign", and then, finally, no more than 5 minutes down the line, we copy and paste all the os files - in my case, im copying all the files from my copy of windows 7 build 7068 (thanks alex ) to the drive, after setting the primary boot media to your usb drive in your bios, your all set! Advantages?

1. Faster installation times

2. No use of discs! Saves money and reusable time after time!

3. Takes no more than 5 minutes to set up, so time effective in comparison with burning a disc. 4. Silent install. No disc spinning up. No annoyance. Do it whilst your sleeping for all i care

5. Did i mention there's no cost of discs involved?!

Installing Usb Drivers For Xd / Sm Card Reader On Win 98

I recently bought an xd / sm card reader from sandisk (sddr-95). Can't get the usb driver that comes with it to install. Apparently, it doesn't work well with windows 98, which is the os i run on my pc. According to their web site, there are some patches that could make it work for win 98, but i haven't been able to get them to work. Win 98se seems to be the lowest version that is fully supported. Does anyone have any experience installing usb drivers/patches for win 98? Are there any inexpensive card readers that would work with 98, or would i have to upgrade to 98se or me?
