Remember if the port you use is 1.0 you will run anything you plug into your hub @ 1.0, regardless of device speed. k_chupe September 29, 2009 9:55:47 AM I was actually trying to use a usb connected dvd drive , which would never be detected by the bios. I went ahead and bought a dvd drive to replace the floppy. Thnx Can't find your answer ? Ask !
