Default USB HUB and Windows XP

Is your 6-way USB hub an external one? And if it is an external one, does
your USB hub have its own power supply? Each USB port on your hub draws a
certain amount of current. But the entire USB port on your computer is only
rated for a maximum amount of current. If your hub is not self-powered (has
its own power supply) then try a USB hub that is self-powered. It sounds as
if the hub is exceeding it's rated current.

turn on the landing light just prior to touchdown.
If you don't like what you see, then turn off the landing light."
