    more then one usb?

    Is it possible to hook in more then one USB device at the same time to the same port? I didnt know if they made anything like that, it seems like the Wii Speak, a mic, camera etc all has to be in the same port as the ex hdd... away around this?

    Pick ME!

    I think that you could use a external multi port usb hub , they sell those in amazon
    (i have not tested this, but my usb wii remote charger is working )
    EDIT: IT works with the wii speak!!!

    I bought a belkin 7 port (# F4U018-BLK) and it works fine. It has an external power source. I bought it for my daughter to use 2 microphones at the same time.

    i couldnt find the one you were using, i tried ebay even... but i found one of their recommended on ebay for dirt cheap, so ill just use a 4 port. my biggest problem was the mics and Ethernet line adapter all at once, gets annoying, unplugging and replugging all the time.

    Ok i finally found one of their "recommended" usb hubs. However I cant get it to work. Am I suppose to load a different file or something to make it work. I plugged it into the one close to the edge, plugged in hard drive and mic, it wont mount the hard drive, unplugged the mic and it still wouldnt mount the ex hd, i used the cord that came with it and plugged it directly into the ex hd and it mounts, so it wasnt bad cords. any suggestions or area i should look?

    edit: this is exact one BELKIN F5U304 4-PORT USB HUB
    edit 2: ive been doing tons more searching, not sure if i looked up the right thing, is there a different ios i should have installed for this to work? also would it be best to install another ios to turn on the other usb port, so the ex hdd can be on its own and all the other toys can be on the other one?
    Final Edit: WOOT WOOT... GOT IT TO WORK! EX Hdd plugging into outer port (or bottom if laying). The USB Belkin hub is in the other port, has the Microphone, Ear Piece and Lan Adapter working all at once. Thanks I continued to search and tried a few different options, it works, thanks guys!!!
