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.
