I ask because when I was preparing to put data on a 4GB one using a Dell
windows computer the other day it did something similar ... then I
realized (found that the optical mouse also on that hub did not work
anymore) that the current draw had burned out the power in the hub (in
Dell monitor hub).

That sounds like a poorly designed hub - the port that is drawing
too much is supposed to shut down, and leave the rest of the ports

Come to think of it, I did not power cycle the hub after the problem started (IIRC it does have power going into it external to USB connection).

I just rebooted the computer and when I realized that the mouse was just momentarily flashing when it was pluged back into that hub, I moved the mouse to directly plug into the computer and started waiting for the two sansa's to charge using the external charger.

the weird thing at the time was that the keyboard continued to work in that hub, while the mouse and sansa would not.

Thanks for the thought about it shutting down for self protection ... perhaps I can just power cycle it and get it working for the mouse _and_ keyboard again.
