Trouble with Kensington Pocket Mini Hub USB 2.0 and Apple iPod.

My computer is an older LG model that only has one USB port and it is located in the back of the computer. I have been using it to run our DSL and flash storge disk with no problem Until I bought a 80 gb iPod. At first the iPod wouldn't work with the multi-port and one day I tried it again and it operated with no problem. But the next day it wouldn't work with that same port so I tried another one and it worked ok. but then it did the same thing. I've used every port with the same results. It seems to hve corupted the ports so that it want support the iPod. I can use it to charge with but not go into iTnues online. In order to access iTunes I have to safely remove my DSL and use the USB port by itself. What do I need to do?

I believe the reason you have this problem is your trying to run too many USB items than your pc can handle at the same time. Since you only have 1 USB port on your pc it may not have enough power to run an iPod and your DSL at the same time.

I have 4 usb ports 1.0 I am not able to download

The port in the PC needs to be USB 2.0 standard.

A quick analogy. Think of a tap with 1/2" outlet, and you connect an adapter and a 1" hose to it. It will work, but you will not get more water just because you attached a thicker hose; the original outlet has to have higher diameter to give you more water.

If all your USB ports are 1.0 version, the only option is to purchase an USB 2.0 PCI card mounted inside the computer - this will give you 2 or 4 (depending on card model) USB 2.0 outlets.

Please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

Flash drive ports on teh fron wont work on pc

If your system is USB 1 rather than USB 2 then some flash drives will not work. Not all usb 2 flashdrives are backwards compatible. My kids flasdrives will only work on my usb2 ports & will not work at all on my wife's computer which has the older usb 1 ports.

I just purchased an HP desktop computer and I do not know where to locate an area on the tower where I can plug in my Apple IPOD connector

Ur iPOd has a Usb (universal serial bus) conecter. These are practically standard for all periphals now, depending on the make of your PC you may not have USB. Most computers made this century do, but if you don't, you can buy a USB port to plug into your PC (im assuming its AGP as if you have no USB you must have an older PC ) for around $20 - for four ports.
Otherwise look in your ipodd case it has a Quic start guide.

Usb port

Have you tried syncing on more than one computer and get the same error msg as a result?

Could very possibly be a bad hard drive in your ipod.

Or, your iTunes is having trouble locating the music your trying to add to it. Try adding music manually, buy using drag and drop. See ifyou still get the same error. Let me know.
