Hi there. This message would indicate any one of the following: 1. You have a lot of USB devices plugged in to your computer, and the maximum power supply for the USB ports has been exceeded by plugging this player to your computer. It would be best if you unplugged 1 or 2 of the USB devices connected for the time being. 2. You are plugging the player on your front USB port, and may need to plug it in the rear USB port to acquire ample power supply (front USB ports do not get as much power as the rear USB port -- sad but true) 3. You are using a laptop and may need to try another USB port on that computer. Purchasing a self-powered USB hub would be ideal as it gets its power supply directly from the wall electrical socket.

A USB device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port

Windows display this message when a USB device is short-circuited. Try another USB cord or connect the usb to the port at the back of your pc. If it does not help then the problem resides in the printer. I will not suggest to dismantle your printer as there are no user serviceable parts inside.
