And expand your USB connections in the tree.
If you have "Enhanced ............." then you have 2.0
Look for "Splats" (Yellow !!)
As for the scanner - You probably don't have the drivers installed in the whitebox, only in the Compaq
It sounds like mainly driver problems, so D Click on all items with splats to reinstall or update the drivers
Only after you have fully updated all USB drivers & installed any additional component drivers can you effectively diagnose any further
Some of my devices seem to work fine with my USB some not. My whitebox system is:
two front USB/4 back, 2.0 as far as I can tell
DLink 7 port USB hub
Windows XP SP2
2.3 GHz Celeron/1 GB memory
120 GB hard drive
Ethernet to Linksys Router and home network
System purchase new in 2003(FIC mainboard)
The system seems to be very stable at this point in time. I run Norton Utilities and other maintenance sw as well as have a firewall/pest remover/anti-virus.
Behavior - most things work fine on the USB ports, either the hub or direct connects. One digital camera will only work when direct connected(not thru the hub). I have a scanner that will only work on a 2003 Compaq Presario, but not on the whitebox on any port. Also, I have had two devices that won't work at all.
I have noticed that the USB mass storage device icon doesn't seem to be present now when I attach a flash drive. This is recent behavior and doesn't predate every USB problem.
Thank you in advance.
