Troubleshooting
Device Not Working
• Make sure that the device is fully inserted into the correct port on the
docking station.
• Plug the device into a different port on the docking station. If it still doesn’t
work, test the device by connecting it directly to your computer.
• Verify that you ran the Setup or Install program for the device.
• Make sure that the device appears in Device Manager. For more information refer to “Verifying Devices are Installed”
• Disconnect all devices from the docking station and reconnect them, one
at a time. Check that each device works before plugging in the next one.
• Each USB port is equipped with over-current protection. Should a USB
device draw more current than the USB port can supply, the port will shut
down. To re-enable the port, unplug the device and go to Device Manager
or to the message in the system tray and choose the Reset option. You
can then plug the device back into the USB port. If a shut down reoccurs,
check the power requirements of the device.
Product Limitations
Some devices may halt temporarily when a high data transfer is occurring.
For example, your mouse may respond slowly while a graphic print job is
printing or while you are experiencing heavy network traffic. We recommend
the following guidelines:
• Do not transfer data to or from multiple high-speed devices, such as a
digital camera or scanner, at the same time.
• If speed degradation does occur, close other programs that use a USB
device to improve device performance.
