Did you use a different hub than the one that came with XIM?  I have a Corsair that won’t work but I would like to try this.

Some Corsair models won’t work at all (most will if set to BIOS mode), but they are all powerhogs and need more juice than the XIM USB hub can supply. I use a 9-port, 12V, Sabrent USB hub with individual port power switches. That provides more than enough overhead to run a Corsair kb, even if it has a second USB cable for power.
