USB memory stick causes WinXP screen freeze

I have cross posted this message to windows.mediacentre (which I now think
was the wrong place !)

I have WinXP Pro with sp2. When I attach my Interno 1gb memory stick
(USB2.0) I was getting a screen freeze during which I got the sanddial, but
basically nothing happened until I unplugged my memory stick. As soon as I
unplugged it all went back to normal. I upgraded to from sp1 to sp2, and now
the problem is intermittent. The pc recognises the plugging in
of my memory stick, but I can't do anything. It just freezes up with the
sanddial running forever ! I am
plugging it in via a 4 port USB2.0 hub on which there is also an exernal
HDD. Can
anyone suggest what the problem is, please ?

thanks ... Roger
