    Mine works fine with a Lilliput Touchscreen, an IFree USB keybaord and mouse, and the Griffin. Only issue is that every once and a while it shows up as an unrecognized USB device. Its pretty random. Usually after the PC has been powered down without properly shutting down XP. I use hibernate mode instead of shutting the PC down and rarely have the issue.

    The quick fix is to run the Device Manager and re-install the griffin drivers. I never have to reboot when I do this. Device Manager can be more easily run by launching devmgmt.msc - just create a shortcut to the file and launch it at any time. It is located at: c:\windows\system32\devmgmt.msc

    I put a shortcut to it in my quick launch list so its easy to get to.

    I found no way to make the powermate work with any of the computers I have with an Logitech USB MX-500 mouse. Still interested in it working though but I won't give up its functionallity for the powermate though...

    Yep I have this problem with the HID driver conflicting in XP. I have a USB keyboard and the touchscreen. I'll see if connecting the keyboard in the PC's keyboard PS/2 plug will reduce or stop conflicts.
