Powered Pi/usb hub insertion

Greetings all,

With my Raspberry Pi B v2 powered up. When I plug in a none powered usb hub (Either with keyboard and mouse plugged into the hub or not), it will reboot. Wondering if this mostly likely a power issue, or a firmware issue?

That is a common issue with USB devices that draw moderate to high power at insert. Plug it in before you start your RasPi and it should be ok.

It seems best to use a quality Mains Powered Hub, which does not backfeed like cheaper ones have a habit of doing..
