    I have a USb cordless mouse, An external HD in Icybox. When I switch on the external drive my mouse stops working for at least a minute. Then it works but with the range reduced. If I connect the Icy via Firewire instead of USB the mouse will only work about an inch from the USB transmitter thingy but the Icybox drive doesnt show in My Computer. Any ideas??
