connect somethibg to this hub, it states that its being connected to a
USB 1.0. But the hub is connect to a USB 2.0. Why is this happening?
Can it be corrected. Thanks

Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub. Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)
After installing the USB controller card into a PCI slot inside your computer, connect the 4 port hub to it with the supplied cable. (at the back of the computer)
Do not connect the DVD Recorder to the old usb ports. They will still work, but obviously not 2.0.
Connecting the power supply for the hub is optional, but usually a good idea.
If your computer still doesn't recognize the hub, make sure you have all of the latest windows updates and try running Add New Hardware in control panel. Also, just unplugging the hub and plugging it back in will sometimes work. Use a different port on the controller card if necessary.
As a last resort, you may need to disable the onboard usb controller through your system bios.
Do you have Windows XP and at least Service pack 2 installed.
Service Pack 2 comes bundled with the neccessary drivers for USB 2.0
In device manager under the USB heading you must have:
PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller
In the list.
im using vista too, when i had 2 hubs only one was working. but i did have the hub plugged into the other hub once i linked it directly to the pc's usb port, it worked... the problem was i wanted that port for an external hard drive, but now i just plugged that into one of the hubs!! problem fixed
