Take the fan off and then unhook everything else that uses the USB ports. Then try hooking one thing at a time until that messages comes up. If it comes up after hooking up the USB fan then you know its drawing to much current and its time for another one, if other devices are making that message come up then it could be that the USB ports are bad. Check different devices out and see what occurs cause that will determine whether its a device problem or a motherboard problem.

This happens when anything draws over 500mA, of current, if it was working OK, before, and is working now but displays that message, or not working, well in any case it seems to have gone faulty, and somehow, is now drawing more current drain, the USB port can supply. It may have been spiked too.from all the plug/unplug especially if the safely remove hardware is not used.

I have pendrive with 32 gb. It was worked for 2 days only. Now its not recognizwd by windows. what can i do.


Considering that if the USB is fine and and working systems, here is simple solution! Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that?s it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don?t really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power. First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be ?rebooted? also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices! So, first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Remove the battery and press and hold down the Power Button of your laptop for a few seconds. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in. Hope this helps someone fix that ?USB device not recognized? Windows error!

Otherwise if the USB is faulty you may claim the warranty as the USB Pendrives are usually under 10 months warranty cover.

Downloading images


Possibly a short in the camera, cable, or the port itself. Recommend trying another port. If that doesn't help, then please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Western Digital Passport 160 GB external HD won't load.


WinXP SP2 blocks the use of the drive because it thinks it draws too much power. But there is a simple procedure to override this (from WD site):

"Problem:
Under Windows XP, an error message of "Power Surge on Hub Port" or "USB device has exceeded the power limits of it's hub port" is displayed when connecting a USB device to a USB port on a computer or Hub.

Cause:
Under some computers, USB devices are only allowed to draw a maximum of 500 milliamps (mA) per connection from the USB port on the computer system or from a USB hub. Under the Windows XP Operating System, with the release of Service Pack 2, if a device attempts to draw more than this (500 milliamps), a USB port balloon message is displayed to indicate this over current condition. When connecting a USB device that draws power from the USB bus, a very brief over current condition is sometimes detected by the OS, and the warning message is displayed.

Resolution:
This message has no affect on the functionality of the USB port. The USB hard drive should still function correctly on the USB port regardless of the error message. To prevent the USB Power Surge Alert message from displaying, please complete the following steps:
Click on Start.

Click on Control Panel.

Double-click on the System Icon.

Click on the Hardware Tab.

Click on the Device Manager button.

Click on the + next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand the selection.

Right-click and select Properties on any listing that displays USB UNIVERSAL HOST CONTROLLER.

Click on the Advanced Tab.

Check the box that says: Don't tell me about USB errors."

This works fine, and the drive works fine afterwards. I suspect it actually draws less power than they say. Maybe it has a brief power draw spike on startup, but it's running power seems less. In any case, it works fine without the Y cable. I do think it is tacky that WD doesn't give the cable for free, since my $7 Sabrent 2.5" Hard drive enclosure came with a y cable.

But most likely the drive will work fine for you. It is a lovely quiet drive, and takes up no space at all.

USB DEvice not recognized


I had a problem like this -- tried plugging the camera in to the rear USB slots not the front ones and it worked fine.

I think that it doesn't like going via a USB hub, but wants a direct connection. All of the USB ports on my computer are connected direct to the motherboard (i.e. none are on PCI cards or anything), but looking at the hardware info for the computer, it looks like the motherboard has a few "direct" USB connections, and then an on-board hub which the front ports connect to. If your computers are the same, that would explain things. I'd suggest trying each USB port one at a time (turn the camera off before plugging in, and back on when in) and see if one of them works. Wouldn't hurt to power the camera from the mains at the time too.

try running app loader again but before you connect your phone up to the computer pull the battery out, then connect the phone, then put the battery back in. A lot of times it will force the connection to get established and then you should be able to run app loader.

USB error message


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? Let us know how you get on...
