Tethering stops other USB devices working!
Ok, so I've got a problem that seems fairly unique (been searching around for ages, can't find any posts with a similar problem).
When I use my Desire for tethering, it works fine, but if I plug another USB device in, the PC comes up with an error saying that "the USB device has malfunctioned". This is the same with a USB hard drive and a webcam in windows 7. In XP, plugging another device in stops the internet connection working, although the network icon remains unchanged in the system tray. Can't work out what to do, please help!!
Apologies, I forgot to add the following info:
Android Version: 2.2.2
Network: 3 (UK)
Taskiller Used?: Advanced Task Killer
[Optional]Are You rooted & which Rom: Nope
