    I recently obtained two PCI USB 2.0 4/5 port cards however they seem to cause problems on the two machines on which they were installed, causing printers, scanners and Palm Cradle to cease functioning properly (even though there was not necessarily anything plugged into the new card!).

    Has anyone come across the sort of problem I have been experiencing?

    The board is a cheap one; made by InnoVision and called 'Extreme IO'. The computers in question were quite different in hardware although one runs Win98SE and the other WinME, both of which the board claims to support.

    If these are the boards that use the NEC chip, I've used a bunch of them in W98, W2K, and XP machines with no issues at all. They have coexisted in a variety of configurations and I've never seen any problems. I haven't seen that particular brand, but of the three different brands I've bought, all have used the same NEC chip.

    Many thanks for that. I'll check it out. I'm also making sure I've got the latest drivers.
