I've tried all 6 of my USB ports (this is the Archos guy) and it doesn't
change the problem. Now I can't even get it to connect because of that
error. The USB ports work fine with any other device, including an ipod.
I'm assuming there is something wrong with either the harddrive or my
installation of it. Any other ideas anyone?

Re the original iPod poster - not sure what you mean by "designated as a
hub" .. ?
Could it be possible that those two USB ports are faulty or don't supply
enough power, perhaps? Same goes for the Archos user below.
