Customer Question
I have a year or...
I have a year or so old Mac Book Pro and an Apple DVD/CD player. Recently the player causes a message to come up on the Mac saying that the USB connection is being shut down by excessive power drain. Or something similar to that. What could be wrong here, with a practically new player?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
