Just got a new Lumix on Saturday and have been browsing through the manual. It states that the camera should NOT be connected to a hub, but directly to the computer. Since the USB ports on my iMac are at the back, and a hassle to access, I have a powered D-Link hub that I connect my peripherals to. Is it really a no no to connect the Lumix the same way I connect my other cameras? I did use the hub to download the first batch of test pictures from the camera and it worked fine. I will permanently connect a cable to the rear of my Mac if I have to, just seems a little strange. My new Fuji has no such restrictions. The only difference I can see id the Lumix uses a re-chargeable Lithium battery...Wonder if that's the key here?
