Hi,
I recently purchased a Belkin USB 2.0 7port hub for my laptop. I have a Creative Sound Blaster USB (about 2 years old) which works fine when plugged directly into my Belkin PCMIA USB 2.0 Card, but whenever I plug it into the hub it comes up with an error. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the card to no avail, but theres still two "USB Audio" icons with exclamation marks beside them in device manager. There is no power issue as the hub is self-powered. There is no resource tab in properties to check if there's a conflict. It could be my lack of processor speed, but it works fine when plugged directly into the laptop's USB or the PCMIA card. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Some USB devices will not work on a hub, some require a controller port.

It's to do with USB enumeration, unsure if this affects your USB audio card/USB hub but your description of the problem tends to fit.
