USB Device exceeded power limit

Specs: WIN XP, 3.80Hz/ 512MB
when I plug in my USB flash disk i get an error "the usb device has exceeded the power limit of its hub port". When I check the power properties of this port the device is listed as unknown device and the power required is also unknown. The problem is that this device no longer works. it just doesn't start. not on this particular pc or any other for that matter. Pls help, can this disk be fixed or shud i just throw it away. Thanks.

Read one or both of this or this threads. They both discussed the issue of "USB Device exceeding power limits."

Couldn't work out what went on in the thread about the 40GB. MOST HDs use 5V AND 12V so they won't run on USB alone.

Dunno what's wrong here with the 2GB.

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.
