Re: HUB power exceeded on MP3 Player
It sounds as if you have too many USB items plugged in at the same time.
When you connect a device to a computer via USB, the device draws its power from the computer. There is only so much power the computer can supply, and if you connect too many devices it can cause problems (hence the error message).
I would suggest that you disconnect any USB items that you are not actually using. If you are unable to do this, it might be necessary to by a USB hub with it's own external power supply.

Use an USB hub to make your connection. The USB controller puts out half an amp at 5VDC. The more things you have plugged in, sucking up that little bit of power, the more likely the next thing plugged in will overload the buss. A powered USB hub will give you the power you need to work with this unit.
It look that your player is drawing too much current from your Macbook Pro: it is rather unusual nowadays but does happen even with some USB external 2.5in drives! Solutions: 1) Buy a USB Power Adapter Y cable that plugs into 2 usb ports on your Computer an thus allows double the current (shop around as they are expensive on Amazon but pretty cheap on Ebay) 2) Plug your player via a 'Powered' USB Hub that can provide higher current (from its 'own AC/DC power pack') to each USB port on the Hub
well i would invest in a hub carrier with it own power sorce 2.0 recomended this should solve your problem well i no it will just go to any com shop and ask for a 2.0 hub or internal usb ports but i must stress it needs to be 2.0 or moor
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.
