Hello!

I know it sounds kind of newbie but my (Mac) computer doesn’t recognize my new flash drive, a HP V225w. I have tried with other Macs and they recognize it, but mine doesn’t. I’ve even change it to a Mac format and still the same. When I connected directly nothing appeared, but if I connected with an adapter, the following message appears:

“A USB device needs more power.

A USB device can’t draw enough power to operate properly. If the device came with a power cord, plug it into an electrical outlet. Otherwise, connect the device to a USB port on your computer.”

I don’t know what to do, can anyone help me please?

Thanks!
