I have a samsung i600 smartphone using windows mobile 2003.  I sync it with my desktop pc using a USB cradle and microsoft activesync.  Recently i purchased a logitech bluetook mx5000 keyboard and wireless bluetooth mouse, mx1000.  The keyboard and mouse work ok, but as soon as I put my samsung i600 in the cradle, the window that is open on the desktop, for instance, the activesync window, will start to flash on and off.  It will flash active, inactive, active, etc.  If i am in word when I connect and click on word, the word window will flash active and inactive.  If I press the connect button on the logitect bluetooth toggle, it stops for a while, then starts again until I remove the phone from the usb cradle.  I've contacted logitech and samsung, both have no idea what is going on.  One suggestion was a corrupt file in activesync that the bluetooth needed, so I reloaded active sync without a chance in what is going on.  Any ideas anyone?

Are you using a USB Hub, or are these devices plugged directly into a USB port each on your PC? I think it really means that this USB root is not providing enough power to make both devices work.

You could add a cheap USB PCI card and have extra ports...

the bluetooth logitech toggle is plugged into a usb2 hub on my dell monitor.  I have tried it directly into the computer usb2 port and the same thing happens.  The samsung cradle usb is plugged directly into the computer usb.  Plus, why does it stop for a short period after I press the connect button on the bluetooth toggle?
