If you are seeing a USB Error message, try the following.
Restart The PC
Often enough, the cause of the USB Error is due to the USB port so shutting down the PC for at least ten (10) seconds will synchronize the power distribution to the USB ports. If that does not prove successful, move to the next step.
Replace The USB Cable
USB cables can become damaged very easily so swapping with a known good cable can let you know if the wires inside got damaged or the contacts are not making a proper connection due to debris or damages.
Replace The Power Cable
The manufacturer always recommends plugging your devices directly into the wall outlet and not a power strip as they feel it may reduce the power needed to operate the devices. If you are plugged directly into the wall outlet and the error message is still shown, try and replace the power cable or power adapter from a similar device.
