Nothing I plug into the hub works, mouse, printer etc. This is second USB hub purchased that doesn't work. First was non powered so told to buy this one but still no success. I am running Win 2000 so do I need a driver? If so, I unfortunately don't have the Win 2000 disc. Shall I just take it back or is their a solution?

Your problems with the Belkin 7 port are not due to the Dell computer or the XP OS. To problem solve, select on USB port and stay with it, not the 2 top ports for your keyboard and mouse.
1. Plug in the power adapter, wiggle it about, widen the prongs, change outlets at the 120 v. end.
2. Use an simple hand magnifier and peer closely at the DC input plug and be positive that the center post and the minue side piece of metal if in firm constact with the plug. If cannot insure a firm fit, sligtly bend that tiny metal piece towards center. Option 2, use another adaptor with the precise voltage as the original and the idential pin that inserts into the module.
3. Use another or new USB connector.
This list does not imply a specific order of diagnosis. Your fundamental problem is the failure to delive DC power to the Belkin hub or to capture the hub to USB port signal. In a phrase, you gotta short somewhere.not an issue with the computer or the XP operating system.
do one thing boot ur vista without usb hub then go to device manager remove your usb drivers of the hub disconnect the hub from computer, restart notebook, then connect the hub back when windows boot let vista to install the driver of that hub, after that connect your devices one by one ok let me know what happen? :-)
The hub draws it power from the computer and cannot deliver enough power for the devices connected to the hub.
Does the Belkin hub have a power socket? If so get a power adapter for it. If this isn't available then purchase a powered USB hub to use with the computer.
If you have an option to turn off USB charging for the camera try this and see if it will work then assuming that all you really want to do is transfer files. If not, then you'll need to switch the camera to a direct USB port on the computer or buy a powered USB hub.
I'm a little embarrassed to say that the fix was easy. It just took me a long time to figure out. It turns out that even though the item was brand new the USB cord included was bad. When I replaced it with one I had on another item it worked fine. Thanks for the email.
If your looking for a good quality USB hub, i would go with a Belkin.
They do cost more than most other hubs, but from the 8 years i have been at my retail store, they have had the lowest return rate of all that I have sold.
