Question about Computers & Internet
I see according to the 7200's specification sheet at the Plustek website
that the 7200 is packaged with a 15V, 1.0A output power adapter.
You must be sure to connect this to the device for it to receive its required amount of power to operate its moving parts, which the USB power output of 5V, 100mA will not provide.
If the power adapter is connected to the device and you still get the same message, you'll have to test the power adapter to ensure it is still giving the correct output.
This can be done with a multimeter. If you're not sure how to use a multimeter to perform the test, I suggest you take the power adapter to a PC repair shop or electrical repair shop where a technician can test it for you.
Hope this info helps you to solve your 7200's power problem.

USB ports operate in pairs from a usb host controller. Normally these pairs of ports are side by side (ie parallel to one another along their longest side) each pair of ports can onlhy be supplied with a limited amount of current.
You can try either plugging the scanner into a port that has nothing in its adjacent pair OR
You can buy a powered USB hub that will be able to sustain the current required for your scanner
