Did you happen to get a cd with thyat icecam? if so, then you need to uninstall it, unplug it from your mac book. and using the cd driver, run the installation again and plug it back into your mac book. another thing that you might want to do is to run up manually for your mac book. sometimes the drivers for the usb ports need to be updated.

I would like to download the info on an old extermal hard drive. when plugging the iomega into my mac book pro - it says that USB devices disabled due to to much power to re-enable USB devices ... this...

Some older external hard drives required special USB cables with two plug-ins. This was not for the sake of data transfer, but because they needed more power than a single USB port could provide. Some older units even went so far as to have the laptop-type "brick" power supply since they needed so much power. This is probably what is wrong here. Your Mac Book probably doesn't have the current to handle the drive on the port and is protecting itself. Some units have one or two high-power USB ports. This may work if you have one. Otherwise, you'll need to download the drive another way.

I use to just plug in my nikon coolpix L610 to my computer ,now it wont work.Whats going on?

hi,
did you try to plug it into another port than the defective one?
sometimes windows loose the control of one port and by changing it recognizes again on new port....
you may also have hardware drivers problems, take a look at the hardware properties to see if there is not a small yellow triangle on some hardware, it can be the source of the problem, search for updated drivers and restart.
or go to nikon's site, search for last driver for your model, and install it, this must solve the problem...
cheers,
mich
