The first problem is explained by the error message. Your camera is consuming too much power to go through a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to a USB port on your computer, without going through a hub.
The second problem is most likely related to the card reader. You didn't specify the exact model of Belkin reader so I can't give you a definite answer, but it appears the reader is designed for SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work with devices not specifically designed to work with SDHC cards.
To sum up: If you want to use a USB port, connect directly to it without going through a hub. If you want to use a card reader, make sure the reader is SDHC-compatible. If you have additional questions, or some part of the above isn't clear, please feel free to respond to this post.
I believe any SD cards larger than 2Gb are technically SDHC cards, which are not compatible with all cameras. Kingston is a decent company so I'm guessing it's not because the card is a dud. If your camera doesn't advertise SDHC compatibility then I don't think you can get the card to work in it.
Did you try putting the card in the camera, and using the camera's "format" card option?(Make sure there is nothing on the the card-a format will delete it.)
Often times, a digital camera requires a format of the card so the proper file/directory structure can be created. If the card is empty, you have nothing to lose.
