So i've got one of the last new 8600's in existance, and xp kicks out a "Power surge on USB port" error every time I connect the 4G ipod mini to either USB port, and I'm then prompted to reset the port or close it down. Google searches have proven fruitless, with the only hint that it might be a SP2 specific problem, or that SP2 might make the power surge error really easy to trigger. It does it much more often when the battery is less than 3/4 full, but this seems obvious. XP home and pro with sp2 on desktops around the house don't cause the error, so I suspect it's not the ipod. Is this a dell hardware thing, a wierd XP glitch or something else entirely? I'm open to suggestions.
