I recntly aquired a usb/amp combo, and am trying to use it with my laptop. the odd thing is, it doesnt really work with my laptop. the right channel is so soft it sounds like its not there.

I tried it on a desktop, and it worked fine, until I plugged in my iphone and sansa clip to charge. again the same problem, right channel disappeared.

i would like to ask, is this a known issue? I am guessing that internally, the computer has a few actual usb slots which are hubbed into more externally. is this why this is happening? and I have a powered usb hub in the mail on the way to me, will that help things?

Thanks
