Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port.

2009-01-29, 1:12 AM

When I attempt to install an external DVD/CDRW I receive the following:

Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port.

I am forced to reset.

I would guess that your external DVD is drawing too much power from the USB port, and could be one of the older units; newer units are usually more power efficient. Such device usually come with a USB cable with two USB connectors that can draw power from two USB ports simultaneously. You may be able to get such cable separately but since the two USB ports are located at extreme ends in the S10, you may want to check that the cable come with the USB connectors with sufficient length to reach both the USB ports simultaneously.

Thank you so much. I had only one of the USB cables connected.

Hi, I am a new S10e customer and tried 2 OEM CD/DVD drives connected with 2 USB cables and both have power issues and will not work.  Can you recommed any drives known to work with the s10e without exceeding power limits?  I may breakdown and get an old fashioned one that has an AC adaptor.  Thanks!  PS... the fan noise is also very loud but see thats a wide issue (after the fact of course).
