I have a Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman. It detects as a Logitech 
Cordless Receiver. My motherboard is an Asus P4S8X. It has the 
SiS648/SiS963 chipsets. I'm not using an external hub. I'm using the 
ports on my motherboard. I've tried using all 6 USB ports I have, but I 
get the same thing; detection and no input.
