“USB Deivces Disabled: unplug the device using too much power to re-enable USB devices.” – via: Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/17

I like how MaylorTaylor formulated his question around this topic on superuser:

USB Deivces Disabled: unplug the device using too much power to re-enable USB devices.

Basically he regression tested many permutations of devices, cables, ports, rebooting, etc.

I had a similar problem, and found it hard to track down as it was intermittent. In the end it was not 1 but 2 USB cables being not completely reliable.

So the warning can use some improvement:

  • sometimes it is not a device but a cable
  • it doesn’t indicate on which USB port this happens
