Put a NEC USB 2.0 card with two extra USB plugs in my computer, XP. Computer found it and installed the necessary drivers and reported card was now working. Confirmed this at Device Manager, no problems. Plugged in a flash drive and this further confirmed all systems go.

Have a Lexmark Z513 printer works great through a powered hub no problem.

But printer refuses to work through the USB card. Why? Thought it might have something to do with lack of power but printer is separately powered. Any ideas would be appreciated?

some devices will not run on USB hubs or USB cards. no idea why but some devices are made only to work on onboard USB. check your printer documents, its proberly mentioned.

Thanks for that guys but my problem is the opposite. The printer will run on the hub but not on the card.

Nothing about it in printer or card documentation. Have uninstalled and reinstalled printer but when plugged into the card software can't find it so would not reinstall until it got connected back to the USB Hub.
