Hello experts,

My Dell XPS 8700 desktop has 10 USB ports and I have 3 USB hubs connected to 3 of the ports. Each of the hubs have 4 devices connected to them.

If I connect a new device to one of the unused ports, I get the message that I've exceeded the number of devices that can be connected and I have to remove a device in order to get rid of that message and make the new device work..

Any ideas?

Thanks for your time.
