Re: Shouldn't be a problem

Thanks for the reply. There's lots of useful information in your comment and the links. I can't say I understand some of the other posts in this thread, but I did look at the system report as suggested. For my USB devices I found the following:

  • OWC USB 3.0 750 GB, 7200 rpm - 900 ma available, 0 ma required (even when backing up)
  • Toshiba USB 2.0 750 GB 5400 rpm - 500 ma available, 2 ma required (even when backing up)
