When I plug something into my USB port-eg. iPod, Camera- it restarts the computer

Any Suggestions???

It maybe the item is taking too much current.

Max is 500ma

Just a thought.

Have you checked that the socket is secure and also your power lead.

I had this problem once and it turned out, in this case, that the power lead had become loose when I pulled my system case forward. If I inserted or pulled out cables or leads the system would instantly die the death.

It took a few minutes to eventually discover that the power lead was only partially inserted, but just enough to work OK if not further disturbed.
