Connection Through Hub

Hi, I have a Computer that does not have Fire-Wire Ports so I purchased a Hub that could provide both USB and F/Wire Ports and connected the S/Card to it. However, when installing the Driver there's a point where the system searches for the device and it does not continue, assumably because it is not finding it. Is it a problem to run this connection through a hub instead of direct connection to the computer.

The hub is most likely the problem.

A lot of hardware doesn't like to be used with a hub (webcams, ipods, etc)

My best advice is use a PCI firewire card.

Nothing happens when plugged in to my laptop

This could be a number of things, lets go over the most likely.
-It is possible if you have an older laptop that you have USB 1.1 ports instead of the needed USB 2.0 port required to provide the device power. (If it has a separate "optional" power supply, use it.) Or all of the USB 2.0 ports are being used. Try unplugging all of your USB devices except for the interface and try it in different ports.
-If this isn't a problem and you have free and powered USB 2.0 ports then the next most likely culprit is bad drivers. Try uninstalling the drivers for the device (if you've installed them) and downloading the newest drivers from the M-Audio web-site and installing those.
Great choice of gear, I use quite a bit of M-Audio equipment myself and it's good quality for a good price...
Hope this helps. Thank you.

My two right hand usb ports are not working!

Three questions that will resolve the issue:
1. Did the printer work? Was it working till the end when you unplugged it?
2. Hopefully you have tried the same devices in other ports and they are working. Else the device maybe faulty.
3. Is the device manager showing any components without drivers?

If the above three points are ok, you may have the seldom case of USB short circuit. USB has power lines. They normally dont short so easy - but things happen.

I would say - ignore the ports. Buy a cheap new hub and use it in one of the working ports. That is your best and cheapest solution.

hi, you can replace the cd drive. or see if you can download the program you want(if available) or try a powered usb hub, it may give the flash drive the power needed. also check and see if a newer driver for the usb controller on your computer is available. i hope this helps, good luck.

US-122 does not want to change bitrate. He reproduces all sounds as 48000 24bit

Try to downgrade to SP 1 or SP 1a and make sure that there isnothing else connected to the USB port that the US 122 is using. As it needs the entire 500 ma from that USB port to work fine. You can find this settings in device manager, right click on each USB Hub until you find the one where the US 122 is connected. If there is an additinal item other than the US 122 connected to this hub, disconnected it or move the US 122 to a different USB port

Poor/fragile connection

Yes, it sounds like the ports may be coming loose, I would attempt to return, if out of warranty, find someone that can solder well, i've replaced ports on external hard drives, not fun.
