hi pc bilbo, thanks for the reply, quick update before i check your link. ive established its not the hubs, also that all tower usb 1.1 (x4) and usb 2 (x1) all work when providing connection direct to device but not through hub, both the hubs im using are mains powered, so im now looking to the tower and i guess a voltage issue rather than conection , ill check your link now. cheers

cracked it, all working......you might not believe this. i came across a huge thread ending with a sugestion of pulling the plug out / sw off at wall-followed by a 30 second button hold?
did this rebooted ......... it works.... im of to eat my hat
