    Since it was "all of sudden" I guess no hardware or other changes to the system? Any new USB devices that you have added? Do you have any front port USB connectors that might be shorting on the case? Using a USB hub? What's the make and model of the MB?

    Max. current per one USB connector is 0.5 A, and every manufacturer take care on that. Follow the norton850`s replies.

    My mother board is an Asus P5B. I do now remember that I had my external hard drive plugged into my USB connectors at the front and then I was going to plug in my digital camera, which I have done before without any problem, and it seems like since then it has come up with that message. Thanks for helping me it is really appreciated.

    No I am not using a USB hub, how would I be able to tell if one of the USB ports on the front of my computer is causing a short? I am not too computer savvy so please speak to me like you're speaking to a child :eek:. Again thanks for the help

    We don`t know whish USB is bad. After damaging error is continous. Try disconnect cable inside of Your PC from front USB port to the motherboard. Look into or blow in the front USB. Also maybe is Your mouse USB, very rare error...

    I have unplugged my USB connection and the computer is working again. I plugged my external hard drive in and it is not recognizing any of the files on it, does this mean that my USB connectors are pooched?
