Dell 8600 hub help?

by rootbeerlove / March 13, 2008 7:45 AM PDT

Hello, I've got a dell 8600 running windows media edition. I know it's old, but it's kept working for me. All except for the USB ports. I can only get one to work. So, if I want to sync my ipod and my external hard drive, I needed a hub, so I bought one at microcenter. It's an inland USB 2.0 4 port hub. So, if I plug in just the external HD, it's fine, if I plug in just the hub, it's fine, but if I plug the HD into the hub, it goes crazy with the found new hardware wizard. I tried to run the wizard, but there's nothing for it to find. Help?
