I have an external USB2 hard drive and a USB2 card reader. Both of these worked fine on my system. However, I have recently formatted my HDD and, having reinstalled everything, I cannot get the two to work alongside each other. If just one at once is connected everything is fine, but with both devices connected, even though all the drives appear in My Computer, I consistently get write failures with the HDD. How can I get around this?
The reader and HDD are both connected to separate USB ports on the back of my computer - as they always have been. I can get them to work now by plugging one into my hub, but since the hub is only USB1 they can't stay like that.
I keep all the drivers for my hardware on the external drive, updating the installation files there whenever I get newer drivers. The HDD and card reader don't have their own drivers anyway, they use the Windows Mass Storage Device one...
