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.

I PLUGGED MY MP3 PLAYER INTO MY LAPTOP USB PORT AND IT USED TO WORK NOW IT SAID THE USB DEVICE HAS EXCEEDED ITS POWER LIMITS OF ITS HUB PORT AND WONT WORK NOW


If you get an error message"Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB deviceinto the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive currentthat the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, youneed to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer'sUSB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

I bought a Sylvania SMPK8854B MP3 player, but when i plug it in to my computer is says that the device is malfunctioning, but i just got it. and i didn't get any cd to install the software for this and...


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.

My computer says the USB port connected to my mp3 is drawing too much power and has shut down the USB port. How do I get around this? I have a MacBook Pro.


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

Hioe it helps!

Power surge on hub port message


unplug your mp3 player immediately!! it will fry your mp3 player if you leave it plugged in!! try adjusting the player's settings and seeing if there is somewhere to switch it from '1000mah' to '500mah' or lower. try that. if it still gives the error try a different usb port.

I think you have a sort in your ipod.
I will say a bad battery will cause this.
You have to open it and see if you make it to work without the battery.

The player is drawing too much power from the USB port. You should try plugging it into another USB port, preferably one where there are no other devices drawing power.

Power sugre with m240


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.
