That is a fair suggestion to make.  I had a lot of trouble 3-4 years ago 
with my Samsung/Android and XP (in a previous life) and found that if I 
avoided any ports on my Hub (built into the floppy drive bay) and used 
the two on the front of the box that were connected directly to the 
mother board everything was quite reliable. Yesterday I tried the rear 
USB ports after being prompted to hunt around a bit by another 
contributer, but it made no difference to the phone.  I am just 
surprised that it was working, then suddenly stopped working.  I suspect 
very strongly that I have done something that I am totally unaware of, 
but have no idea at this stage how to analyse it and find a solution. 
Given the phone works ok on my sister XUbuntu machine just fine, I know 
it can be done.

Thanks for your interest and suggestions.

Cheers, Rob
