USB Hub does not show HD after cold boot
OK. Here's my situation:
Got a powered USB 7-port hub. Currently attached to it is a SB Extigy and a 2.5" harddrive in a USB case.
I haven't played with the CarPC enough to see if this is just an occasional problem or all the time but from what I've seen, it's all the time. When the computer boots:
1. The USB Hub, the harddrive, and the Extigy will be shown in the Device Manager
2. The 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon will be shown in the Tray for the harddrive and Extigy.
3. The computer will show the Speaker icon in the Tray (because of the Extigy).
My problem is: the harddrive will not show up in My Computer unless it is unplugged (drive is also power through the hub on a second connector) and plugged back in or I remove the USB and power cables from the hub. FrodoPlayer does not see the drive either (that is where all my media is stored).
Any suggestions as to how to make this work? I only have one more USB port on the motherboard. I would like as much low-end equipment to run through the hub so I can use the motherboard port for the DVD whenever I get it installed.
On a unrelated note but maybe someone will know: Why can I not run my Earthmate GPS (with Serial driver) through the hub but it works fine on the board?
PS. This is not a Hibernation problem.
