My computer is a four or five year old Dell laptop running XP, SP2.
As it's so old, it has the old slower USB.
To fix this, I have a cardbus to bring it up to USB 2.
My laptop is also running a wireless internet card.
The crux of the problem is, when the wireless card is plugged in with the USB 2 card with my ipod into it I get a power surge.
I tried to remedy this problem by getting a wire, which goes from an old USB port to the USB 2 card to give it extra power. However, this has done nothing.
If you could give me some advice to remedy this problem, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much,
