I have a few usb devices pluged in at a time, 6.

When i plug my recently bought external hard drive in at the same time as my ipod the one to be plugged in last reports a malfunction.

Can you offer any help?

Perhaps you've exceeded the total bandwidth of your USB? Are all 6 plugged into individual USB ports or are they all (or even some) attached via a hub?

Possibly exceeded the total power available for USB ports?
