I took your advice and ordered one - despite the fact that I have *no* 
idea what the hub is designed to do.  With luck, that question will be 
answered when the hub arrives.

Like your iPad, my tablet was also shipped with a charger; unlike the 
shipped USB-connector (and the purchased SD Card Reader), the charger 
works. Hopefully, the offered diagnosis (that my problems are caused by 
my aged computer) will prove to be correct. 

Thank you for the pointer.
