Default Power Surge with FZ-20

I recently started not being able to download pic's to my computer. I get a pop up that says " Power surge on hub port".If I click on it, it says " A USB device has exceeded the power limits of it's hub port". At first, if I kept messing with it I could eventually get it to down load. Now it won't do anything. I even tried switching port's. Heck, I even re-formatted my whole computer. Do these usb cable's go bad. Or do I have a bigger problem. Thank's.

Is this one of the USB ports inside the computer, or one of those external hubs plugged in to the computer by a cable?

The computer and camera were bought new in 2004. It's worked fine until recently.

Do you know if the ports on your computer are USB 2.0, or 1.1?

It boils down to one of three things, the PC, the camera or the cable. You've formatted the PC so that should rule out problems there, the next thing I would try would be a new cable, they can short out inside. After this I would try downloading the pictures using the new cable onto a different PC, if you still have the problem it is the camera.
