    Hi everybody,

    Everytime I plug in an usb device, especially devices that use much resources like external Hard Drive or Digital TV-Card, usually I have to try 2,3 times until Windows recognize it, with some luck it can sometimes works on the first try. But even after successfully recognize my device, every 15-30 Minutes Windows notifies me that my device is unpluged and a few second later it is "automatically" pluged again. This is extremely annoying :mad:, image when you are copying data from the external Hard Drive or watching movies from the TV-Card and this thing happens --> have to start all over again :eek:

    At first, I thought it was because of lacking power for the usb-ports, so I bought a USB-Hub with dedicated power supply, but it seemed to be even worse, now my usb-mouse keep disconnecting all the time if I plug it in the USB-Hub (with power turn on), but it works normally if I plug it in the PC USB-Ports (not through the USB-Hub)

    I'm really confused, should it be a hardware problem, or even a software issue (windows) :confused:

    Thanks so much if anyone can help me (y)
