Hello.

I received a new Olympus camera for by birthday. I attempted to plug it into my fujitsu lifebook USB port to retrieve the pictures I had taken when I got an error message stating that my device exceeded the power supply. Now none of my usb ports work. I have nothing plugged into them now or when I plugged the camera into the port. Is there an internal surge protector of USB ports that I can reset? I have checked the device manager and it states that all the ports are working but they are not putting out any power. I tired downloading the drivers but that did not work.

Please help.

thanks,
S

It sounds like you do not have enough bus power to use that device.

This is why I think you may have not damaged anything.
Your post is kind of hard to understand, so I interpreted it the best I could. You never said if you have tried these usb ports with another peripheral, so that also makes me somewhat believe every thing in the computer may still be ok.

I know, but does he mean none of them work with the camera, or with a differ peripheral?
