Sorry for the delay. The hotel wireless connection took a dive. If the camera works OK and it is just a message then go to Control Panel>Device Manager>Universal Serial Bus Controllers>USB Enhanced Host Controller>right click to select properties>Advanced and then check the box that says "Do not tell me about usb errors". That will stop the error messages which only mean that the camera is drawing slightly more than 500mA which is a USB 2.0 feature that you can disable to revert to USB 1.1 but not necessary if the camera works. Each of the Host Controllers has a check box like that. The USB Root Hubs below that have similar checkboxes to Reset if you ever get a message that the Root Hub needs to be reset just for your own info. This is a common annoyance and is probably more due to the USB cable quality than the camera actually drawing more power. Feel free to repost if you have any other concerns. Steve Medley
Hi, are you using a USB hub or attaching directly to the computer USB port?
If you are using a USB hub, which is then connected to your computer ... you either need to
Plug the camera directly in to the computer so that the computer supplies the USB with more power to the camera.
If the USB hub has a power plug/adapter, use it so the USB hub gets more power to handle the task.
Buy a different USB hub that has a power adapter so enough juice can be supplied to the tasks that USB is asking to do.
Some USBs on the computer aren't giving enough power, you may have a bad USB port, try another one.
Use a Card Reader, which is much faster to download pictures than from the camera.
Reason: some times, the USB task is asking for a lot more power than is being supplied through the current USB path. You have to either add power through an adapter or plug directly in to a power source (like the computer directly, or a reader that doesn't require as much power to operate it).
Have you connected any other USB devices to your PC? The USB ports can only supply a small amount of power and some devices especially USB connected hard drives consume more power than it can provide so they usually have an external power supply. Remove any other USB devices & try again. Did you have your camera connected before with a power adapter? Are you camera batteries fully charged?
