  1. I just bought a kingston pen drive it seem that it having problem with my usb drive or something

    when i try to scan virus on it or copy file in or outside it will eject itself automatically

    after a while i know that that it cannot use together with my mouse(when they plug in my computer together)

    i always need to unplug my mouse in order to use my pendrive it make me crazy

    it should not be the virus problem

    my usb hub is old version type(not 2.0)

    anyone got any ideal to solve this???

    You are best to mount the pen drive directly into the computer (hopefully in a USB 2 connector).

    The USB 1 hub that you spoke of is the problem, they just don't have enough to hold the pen drive and mouse (possibly other USB devices connected to it.
    You should purchase a USB 2 powered hub.

    a PCI USB 2 hub can solve the problem????

    No you should update your USB Hub to USB2

    You could purchase an internal PCI USB2 card to a Desktop computer if you prefer
