usb hubs

I have a Lynksys compact 4 port hub which appears to be incompatible with Epson Perfection 3170 photo scanner. What hub do I need to work with this scanner and with Epson PictureMate 100?

Hub will need to be power to run a scanner, as Pamy says plug the scanner irct to a USB port on the motherboard, keepthe hub for light power users such as mice.

You will find that some components can get very temperamental with certain type of hubs, and it may pay to experiment a little. Self-powered hubs are advisable with some scanners and printers. But the best method is a straight connection to the pc usb connect socket.

I run my scanner + a mouse from a hub with no problem but it has it's own power supply.You may well have a problem if your Hub is not powered.
