USB bandwidth

I keep getting a message saying I've run out of USB bandwidth, and to remove a device to solve the problem. Can someone explain USB bandwidth,,,,,,,,,what part of my PC controls this? Can I do anything to increase it?
TIA :)

This is merely a suspicion, Pete...

Do you have USB2 installed?

If not, you might want to install it. It has a higher bandwidth than USB1.

Naturally, the more USB devices you have connected and running, the lower each item's bandwidth will be, coz they'll all have to share it.

Disconnecting a device will increase the available bandwidth for the other devices.

You could try refreshing, that may help... (Device manager > USB) Or enable Power Management if it's been disabled...
