I assume the ThumbDV is using an FTDI device for the USB to Serial conversion.
I’ve noticed similar issues when not plugged directly into the PC. This is compared to a Powered Hub. I’m starting to be suspect of the FTDI driver. My guess is the driver may not be forgiving of some timing issue that is made worse when connected through a hub. But that is just a wild guess.

HAH! That was it!
Connecting the ThumbDV directly to the laptop's embedded USB port works. Connecting it to a Dell laptop dock (powered) does not.
Of course, that's terribly frustrating. The point of the dock is to avoid plugging in / unplugging equipment.
Any idea how to solve this?
