D-Link USB hub problem

Hello,

I have a HP laptop running Windows XP SP2.

I have a D-Link 7 port USB 2.0 hub that is powered from the mains. When I connect my Buffalo 250GB external hard drive (also mains powered) it shows up as an unknown device.

However, when I connect the HD to the laptop directly it works fine.

Any ideas on why this is happening?

All help would be much appreciated and thanks in advance!

:)
