I have an Epson DiscProducer PP-100 which has two DVD-R drives connected to my computer with one USB 2.0 cable and conflicts with a Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB 2.0. I know this because the Kingston drive is not recognized whenever it is inserted with the discproducer is on and its USB inserted. I know the obvious solution is to eject the DiscProducer but I often need to use both products simultaneously.\

I have a Dell Optiplex GX620. The OS is Windows XP with Service Pack 3. The processor is a Pentium 4 CPU 3.40GHz; 3.39GHz and 2GB of RAM. My keyboard and mouse also have USB connections and the computer tower is plugged into a four port KVM switch.

Thanks for your help!

Just checking.

Did you try assigning other drive letters to what's working before plugging in the next drive?

I'll not write how as XP has been out for over 11 years.
