I would like to download the info on an old extermal hard drive. when plugging the iomega into my mac book pro - it says that USB devices disabled due to to much power to re-enable USB devices ... this...


Some older external hard drives required special USB cables with two plug-ins. This was not for the sake of data transfer, but because they needed more power than a single USB port could provide. Some older units even went so far as to have the laptop-type "brick" power supply since they needed so much power. This is probably what is wrong here. Your Mac Book probably doesn't have the current to handle the drive on the port and is protecting itself. Some units have one or two high-power USB ports. This may work if you have one. Otherwise, you'll need to download the drive another way.

How to display Monitor image from mac book through samsung SP-H03 pico projector?


It's not that easy. The SP-H03 accept VGA input through the D-Sub connector. Mac book does not have this output directly. So you need another piece of adapter for the MAC Book to provide VGA output. It would come out from your Mac "Display Port /orThunderbolt port".
Another way is to use a USB to VGA adapter for Mac.

Hi Gurus ..My Mac Book Pro has destroyed 3 USB memory sticks so far... physical damage that no formatting soft or hard on both MAC or PC worked. It happens as soon as I stick the drive in... I read that a...


It's possible your USB slots have a lot of dust, or could be physically damaged and is causing shorts. If three USB drives have already been damaged, your best bet is to send the mac book to apple for inspection. If your warranty is up, or you're feeling adventurous, you can open the Mac Book your self and have a look at what's going on near, around, or on the USB ports.

Power Mac G5 usb front+others does not always work does not seems to have power flowing with the USB ports. boots well, sleeps well. what can be the problem? thanks, AM


You may have more things plugged in that the computer wants to supply power to. I suggest getting a self-powered hub. I did that and those issues went away for me ... mostly. <grin>

Hi there i am trying to use a mcalla icecam on an old 12 inch silver mac book with usb 1 port. I downloaded the drivers and plugged in the camera and it just brings up coloured lines on the screen, plus...


Did you happen to get a cd with thyat icecam? if so, then you need to uninstall it, unplug it from your mac book. and using the cd driver, run the installation again and plug it back into your mac book. another thing that you might want to do is to run up manually for your mac book. sometimes the drivers for the usb ports need to be updated.

Not enough space to back up?


sure..the back ups are compressed files, usually, and though it appears to be a small file, the external drive will allocate the space that it needs. Mac's won't put a file anywhere that there is not enough room. PC's will slice it and spread it around, of course.
I recommend you off load some of those backups to DVD's and keep them for a month or so.
Or get more disk space.

Targus Travel USB 2.0 4-port Hub


sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

Is the secondary voltage required for a WD external storage book wdh1u5000n 12 volts DC?


There is no absolute answer to this, it depends on the USB ports of the computer. Normally on a dekstop it might not be required, on most laptops it would be.
But ... if there are ports available, I'd use them both all the time, reduce the risk of power problems.

No Power to new 640 My Book Drive


John, Ejected or unmounted may be the difference.  Have you added the drive?  If you only power it up occasionally for back-ups you would leave it off, but for everyday use once it is added you can just leave it on and after you power down then turn it off.  randy320sgi
