    This could be because the computer is turning off power to the USB port... Are you using XP or Vista?

    Go to Start > Control Panel. If you are in Category view, click on Performance and Maintenance and then Administrative Tools. If you are in classic mode click on Administrative Tools. Then choose computer management. This brings up a two pane dialog box. On left find and click on Device Manager. Next on the left at the bottom of the list it should say universal serial bus controllers. Double click on that to expand it. At the bottom is USB Root Hub. Right click and choose Properties. This opens another box. Click on the tab that says power management. Uncheck the box that says allow the computer to turn off power to it.

    There should only be one USB Root Hub.
