Hi All

I have been using my faithful Ipod Click wheel for a few years now without any issues at all. I have now upgraded to an Ipod Video so gave the old faithful to my son. It was all setup and running on his PC, but now for some unknown reason we have a USB power problem.

When plugging it into his PC the PC just beeps and the keyboard and mouse lockup. If I plug it into mine PC I get a balloon message at the bottom telling me there is a power surge on the USB hub. I then get the option to reset the port.

The Ipod itself works fine. I've reset it via the menu/select method. I've put it into disc mode. Nothing seems to work. Anybody got any ideas where the problem lies?

Thanks in advance

What happens when you connect directly to PC not hub? It needs a Hi power or 2.0 usb

Hi. When I say hub I mean the internal hub of the PC. The Ipod has been fine for a while and now I plug it in to the same port I've been using and get the warning.

Does the Ipod work at this point, or do you have to reset the port for it to work, or it don't work no matter.
Also is this XP sp2
Are there any other devices running on this hub
