I use a USB hub with my laptop, which has only two USB 1.0 ports. Until recently, I had a hub into which I had two USB plugs from a Seagate external 40 GB hard drive, a scanner, a printer, and an external floppy drive. I noticed the laptop suddenly didn't recognize the external drive. I got a new, a4-port USB hub. The backup drive worked briefly, until I released it and plugged it into different ports, because of the length of the cords of the other items. The external hard drive began to flash and make loud clicking noises, but it's NOT recognized by the laptop. Any ideas as to the problem?
