Hi Prestoni, I had a simular problem with a printer once, turned out the printer was usb2 and at the time, the usb sockets on the PC were version 1. Although the printer should have been backward compatible it would only work properly with usb2. This might not be your problem, but just a thought.

Is that when you insert it into usb ports on the front/back or both? I have an ongoing problem with a memory stick that dumps the confuser if I use it in the fronts slots, but works OK on the back. My camera, like yours, is OK in the fronts slots.

thanx It now seems sorted, got two usbs working on back and front ones are the problem.
