Drawing to much power over usb port
\015 When i plug my camera into my mac it says that the usb device is drawing too much power and the usb port will be deactivated, so i haven't been able to move any of my photos to my comp.\015
I am having the same problem... and I have a Mac... everyone suggests getting a card reader for it instead of plugging it in directly. Inexpensive too.
Use a USB port on the back of the PC, not off a hub, or use a powered hub, It cant take more than 500mw of power per USB port, even though there are 2 ports, they may be off the same controller inside the pc. I use a powered hub and have not had that problem ever since. I had a webcam that drew 450 and no other device worked off that port.
