Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

Exceeding power in usb port

\015 Im trying to download music to a mp3. I cant even get one thing in because it automatically pops up and error and i cant get anything to it. I have a dell pc.\015

Answers :

Make sure the MP3 player is full charged and try the following to isolate the problem.

1. leave the MP3 player connected for an hour or so before downloading.
2. Try another USB port.

If problem still persists, your MP3 player may be the problem.
You will have to disconnect some usb items first.
\015\012If you have a HUB then disconnect that and same if you have a usb printer.
\015\012That should let you then copy.
\015\012USB ports can only supply so much current and too many devices without thier own power will overload it just as you are seeing.
