Well let's mix it up a bit more.
I just said the **** with the front USB ports and I'm just going to disconnect them and forget about them since I never had much of a need for them anyway.
Well, I stole the hub from the upstairs computer. I hooked it up to one of the USB ports on the back panel of the tower. I plugged my digital camera into each one, and each one responded just like it should.
Here's the tricky part.
When I plug in my mp3 player to the hub, I get a notification in the corner that says "This device can be faster, click here to see available ports." It shows me some unused ports that I should try plugging into or some sh*t. I don't know what it means. BUT... when I plug the mp3 player directly into a USB port in the back panel, the notification doesn't show up.
Does the notification only show up when I plug the mp3 player into the hub because, well wouldn't the hub act as a middle man? Perhaps having to transfer from mp3 player to hub to pc, it WOULD generally be a bit slower than mp3 player DIRECTLY to pc. Wouldn't it? Or would the hub make no difference?
p.s. - about my last problem with the front USB ports, I've just concluded that my cheap 16 dollar case just has crappy usb ports, because they're rather lose and none of my usb attachments stay connected too well. The usb ports on the back panel work 110% though, even if I move the plug around a bit.
