    I still cannot find any solution to the fact that iPhone suddenly failed to charge. When plugged into Mac notebook, this message comes up 'This device is drawing too much power. The hub to which it is attached will be deactivated'.

    When plugged to a power socket on the wall, nothing comes up and no charge takes place.

    Tried charging iPhone with friend's USB cable at work, not working either.

    Is this a hardware problem that CANNOT be fixed? Please share idea.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Iphone drawing too much current

    Happened to me just now! In fact I could not turn my iPhone 2G off last night at the cinema as it kept starting up on its own each and every time I turned it off (sliding the red slide)!. Today connecting it to my MacBook I get the "device is drawing too much power this USB port will be disactivated" message. I've tried different cables, Macs and power supplies to no avail! Anyone with ideas? URGENT!

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    You probably need a new battery. At least try to charge it with a wall charger.
