It could be the hardware (the combo of the usb drive and usb
controller) just not scaling back to usb 1.1 properly through noisy
I have had similar things happen when using the USB ports on the front
of my machine (that connect through a long wire that runs by
hard-drives and power supplies, etc to get there). Plugging directly
into the usb ports on the back of the machine helped in my situation.
Maybe it will work for you if you try a different port or skip the hub
