Funny thing USB's

Recently I installed a new Lexmark X5150 printer and a Umax scanner into my system.The scanner would not work, so I contacted Umax for advice. They stated that I would need a self powered Hub.I purchased the hub, connected the scanner,and all worked okay.Running short of direct USB connections, I connected the Lexmark printer to the self powered hub. This method did not work, as the printer at certain stages, caused the computer to crash, so I contacted Lexmark. Their advice, was that I had to connect direct to the computer hub, and not via the self powered USB hub.So two different pieces of kit, with different working methods.
