I recently fitted a 3.0 usb card which is powered from the power pack not the motherboard. I connected the power supply leads to some coming from the rear of the dvd drive power supply.
However I am now getting this message...
"POWER SURGE ..A USB IS EXCEEDING ITS POWER LIMITS".
This causes the usb ports to stop working. What have I done wrong please? Should I have picked up the power supply from somewhere else and not the plug that feeds power to the dvd drive?
Is this the one? ClickHere it seems to need 5v all to itself AFIK and as one of the commenters 'TotallydubbedHD' say "installation ..requires a MOLEX power connector, which isn't included in the package, however should be coming straight from your PSU..."
and you have it sharing the 5v with your DVD so perhaps that's the problem (Molex gives 5v max).
