I'm having a rather odd problem with a new card reader. Here's the system info along with the hardware info:
Card Reader: SanDisk ImageMate 12 in 1 (USB 2.0 backwards compatible with 1.1 per Sandisk)
System Internals: FoxConn P9657MA (Duel Core motherboard with 8 USB hubs), Dual hard drives, internal DVD ROM, NvIdia 8600 PCIexpress, and Floppy powered with an Enermax Liberty DXX 500
External peripherals: Logitec Wireless keyboard / mouse USB receiver, External IEEE 1394 CD Burner
Both the card reader and the keyboard / mouse receiver are plugged into Separate USB 2.0 roots hubs per the motherboard schematic and Windows Device Manager.
The Keyboard / mouse root hub indicates only 1 device attached to it drawing 98 mA out of an available 500 mA
The Card reader hub indicates only 1 device attached to it drawing 500 mA out of an available 500 mA
Everything looks fine except for the following:
1) If the card reader is plugged in when the system boots up it hangs the boot.
2) If the card reader is plugged in after boot it isn't detected unless I go into the device manager and manually scan for hardware changes. Then everything works fine.
It sounds like a registry problem but this is the only device that isn't being auto detected when it's plugged in.
I haven't pulled the system out of the desk yet to check the line voltages to confirm the USB port in question has adequate voltage but I'd be floored if an Enermax 500 isn't suppling enough voltage on the 5V rail. I've tried swapping out which ports the keyboard / mouse receiver and card reader are plugged into without any success.
