    What devices go to what?

    Ok, my install has a massive setup, 22 USB port and only 3 of them are free!!!! The MoBo has or will have 6 onboard USB ports. What devices should go on these ports. i know some devices will not install correctly if put on a hub. Here is a list of the devices.

    1. Joystick 1, also for thumb drives
    2. Joystick 2, also for thumb drives
    3. 7 port hub 1
    4. ELM 327
    5. Sierra Aircard
    6. SoundBlaster Live
    7. 7 port hub 2
    8. Silabs FM Radio
    9. XM Radio adapter
    10. Bluetooth dongle
    11. K-90 touchscreen
    12. Lilliput touchscreen 1
    13. Lilliput touchscreen 2
    14. Mouse Reciever for wirless mice 1,2, and 3
    15. PS3 Thumbpad 1
    16. PS3 Thumbpad 2
    17. PS3 Thumbpad 3
    18. TMPS
    19. Belkin Wifi
    20. - 22. Spare

    I do know Hub one has to go on the onboard USB. So does the SoundBlaster Live and the ELM 327 (will not install unless on a onboard port, weird). What else should be on the onboard USB ports that will run bad on a hub.... I have 6 onboard.... I have 3 onboard left. Does the XM need to be on a onboard port or can it be on the hubs?

    Both hubs are powered by the way.

    I had trouble with my touch screen when I had it and a hub both plugged into the same usb host controller. The touch screen would just randomly stop working. It worked completely fine once I switched which port the touch screen was plugged into.

    I know other people had similar problems

    Do you mean taking it off of a hub and onto a onboard port.... I did have alignment issues, but i think I had them either way..

    you know how usb ports come off the motherboard in pairs? each one of those pairs plugs into a usb host controller on the motherboard.

    With my touchscreen at least, if you plugged in the touch screen to the same usb host controller as a hub, it would just stop working randomly. I'm not sure if it would cause alignment issues, though.
