Did it come with a driver disk? Did you try to change usb ports? Did you try to unplug in and plug it back in again (my Kodak Digital Camera does this sometimes)?

be sure that when you install the drivers you dont have it plugged in, sometimes this makes it not work (odd huh?) with a HP printer it can ruin the printer, how ****ed up is that? neways yes, you can have more than one device pluged in through 1 usb port, in fact you can have up to 127 devices daisy-chained on one usb port, but no more than that (why would you need 127 usb devices?) neways, yes you can, you can get a usb hub with either 4 or 8 usb ports on it for around $40 (usd)
