    Hi
    Just tried to plug my iPhone 3GS into the USB charging cord (which has worked fine for 1.5 years), and got the attached message.
    "USB Over Current Notice: A USB device is currently drawing too much power. The hub to which it is attached to will be deactivated"
    I tried removing it from the right-hand port and putting it in the left-hand one, same message appeared.
    (Wasn't sure if this belonged here or in the iPhone forum, but figured since the error message was on the Mac, I would post here - hope it's right!)
    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks
    Xander

    Is the USB cord defect?
    Try using a wall charger and if it doesnt charge, take it to Apple Store...
