: : I think you're overtaxing the USB controller that's connected to those rear ports. Those are all very demanding device ('cept the mouse of course - which should be on the hub BTW). Have you connected the other internal USB header to some external ports yet? You should. Doesn't Asus supply a cable for this?

: : : Problem:
: : : I want to use a PNY USB Reader/Writer P/N FPTS-C to transfer pictures from my Nikon Coolpix 5700 digital camera to my computer.
: : :
: : : Each time I connect the card reader or the camera to my PC with the provided (shielded) usb cable the following occurs: the system recognizes the new hardward, begins to install the required drivers and then crashes to shutdown/power save mode.

I have the following USB periferals Motorola surfboard modem/Intel video cam/UMAX 2200U scanner/connected through a Belkin USB hub and Intel Explorer mouse one of the motherboard USB ports.

: : : I have used the usb trouble shooting guide on this website but have not found a solution there. I have a second PC Intel 800Mhz pentium 3, ASUS CUSL2 mother board and Windows Me which previously had all my USB hardware installed and working. I installed all the Nikon software and the PNY Compact Flash Card Reader on my second PC and they work perfectly. The two PCs are not networked together.
