Its called a USB Hub, as far as I can tell you, it will not spike or damage your USB system...

here is one for example:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1067390694287

something like that maybe?
you plug in the one that goes from the USB of the Comp to the hub then you have 4 usb ports on the hub, it is self powered as to not draw too much power from the comp.

here is a link to an Ebay search of "USB Hub"...you can use paypal on any of them...
link us the one you decide before you purchase just to be positive

well the major difference between USB hubs is the name and whether they are 2.0 and how many ports...

to be honset I have only had expreience with a D-Link and another but to be honest I forget the name...and they both worked great...then there was a third one but it was 1.1 so I wont even go into that...lol

Read the rest of the reviews...to be honest it looks ok as long as you dont want to use the stand, one other thing is if you plan to plug "recievers" of sorts in or USB drives then you need to watch out for spacing because they may be a tight fit.

EDIT: Ive had personal exp with this one: http://www.amazon.com/D-Link-DUB-H4-.../dp/B00006B7DA

ive run 2 externals and a DVD burner on this (I think, if not, 2 externals or 1 and 1...) but anyway I like it and no probs yet.
