Off switching USBs on MacMini


one of our PreProduction Setups, we want to base on a MacMini.

The Mini has 4 USB ports.

Which are connected:

1. Keyboard/Mouse
2. MBox 2
3. Axiom 25
4. external USB HardDisk

I can't get it working all at once.

When I plug in all 4 at least 1 isn't working anymore. So I plug in the HD, the Mbox isn't
working anymore a.s.o....

Tried different combinations, also tried an USB hub, which does the Keyboard, HD and Axiom, so
the MBox is still direct connected.

Nothing helped.

I don't think its USB power related. Maybe to much data traffic (HD, MBox, Axiom) ???

Anybody else experienced this ?
