Epson Scanner won't work on USB hub

By Skip Bisconer ·
I have installed an Epson 1650 on my desktop and trying to use it on a USB hub and it causes my computer to go blue with a memory dump message. It works ok hooked directly to my computer USB port. I really wanted to use this scanner between two computers and now I have to pull one out from under the desk to plug in the back each time I want to scan from a different computer.

Any suggestions out there?

Epson Scanner won't work on USB hub

If the Hub is not powered, either add the transformer to power the hub, or get a powered hub.

Other options:
Shorter and/or better quality USB cables.

Install a front panel USB connector on one or both PCs.
You can find these that fit eithera 3 1/2" or 5 1/4" bay.
They either connect to the internal USB ports (if the MB has them) or connect through an adapter to the rear panel USB ports.

Could you post the error message and the specification of the USE hub(if possible)?

Thanks
