    Hi guys
    I have a number of systems with the same issue. Whenever ONE USB device is plugged in, the system reads it fine.
    If I plug a second device in, the system "freezes". This happens with ANY combination of different USB devices. I can still move the mouse, and the keyboard is still responsive, but anything I click on takes forever to respond. As soon as I UNplug either one of the devices, the system seems to recover and functions normally. I have an Intel D945GCNL motherboard in the systems, and the devices I have been working with are: 2 Kingston 8GB flash drives, 2 Maxtor 1TB External Harddrives, and a generic card reader. As I said, ANY combination of those devices causes the problem. I have not been able to find anything on the Web that closely describes the problem I'm having....so I could sure use some help. The OS we're using is Windows XP SP3 and has all the current updates applied. I have scanned for viruses and Malware and cleaned whatever was found....but no change. I have also updated as many drivers as I could find on the Intel website for the 945GCNL MB.
    At this point, I absolutely baffled !
    Thanks in advance guys for ANY help you can give me.
