Do you know for sure that your USB hub is working?
If you are not sure:
Go to the Device Manager and scroll all the way to the end and you should find a device called:
"Universal Serial Bus Controllers"
Click the Plus Sign + to the left of Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
What entries do you find there?
I am unable to initalize Nikon Coolpix 5900 on Windows ME, on a Gateway Solo laptop, 30 GB memory. THe computer does not recognize the camera and Picture project software does not, either.
I think I have tried everything, including installing system-requested drivers, disabling Norton Antivirus, and checking the Windows Updates to see if any downloads are necessary.
