Plugged my dig camera cable into usb port last eve and got the above msg. I then took the operation to my Dell pc which it always worked on, (the cable), and it did not work there either. My question is, has this power surge thing blasted my panasonic cable so that it no longer works? If the cable is damaged and I replace it, and I buy one of those powered usb hubs, will I be able to download my pictures to my pc? Would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.

That message means the camera caused too much power to be drawn from the usb port when you connected it.

Yes it could be a cable that has gone bad, try another one. If you get the same results, I suspect the camera is malfunctioning.

Yes, a couple of usb flash drives, mp3 players all work on the same usb connections, I take them in and out as needed. The camera usb was plugged into the back connection and when I hooked up the camera to it, I got the msg. I moved it to the front ones and got the same msg. I used this cable 2 weeks ago w/o a problem. Since it doesn't work on the other Dell, I suspect the cable has been damaged by this surge. I can't imagine what caused that usb surge since it always worked fine and there was nothing going on to cause it. Weather, etc. Thanks.

For those few users here that do not have a card reader installed on their pc, the solution is to buy an external card reader. Simplest and cheapest route - at least it was for me. Forget the cable - $25 from Panasonic (with shipping). $12 for card reader from Staples. Now I can get to my picts once again. So solved...
