I've got a row on the front of the computer with all the slots for different types of flash memory plus a USB, and I have another pair of USB sockets on the bottom front where the headphone and mic jacks are. I'm plugging it in there as I type this message, so we'll see what happens. I originally plugged it into the back so I wouldn't accidentally knock it off and bust it, and because the owners guide showed it that way.
I have no other USB devices plugged in except the printer, it just seemed like other apps or background services were interrupting it. This new mouse and keyboard came together with a 2.4 GHz USB receiver.
It was really stuttering when I was listening to streaming radio with Winamp. I had to turn off Winamp to even be able to work with it. Now I have Winamp on again after moving it and I'm trying again. It seems like it might be better, I'll just have to keep an eye on it for a while and report back with the results.
I suppose the video cable could conceivably interfere with a receiver behind the box; the receiver was right next to the video socket.
Edit: Thanks for moving my topic to the External Hardware forum.
