"A USB device is currently drawing too much power"

So I just got myself a Letcool today, but when I plug it into my Mac, it gives the message:

"USB Over Current Notice

A USB device is currently drawing too much power.

The hub to which it is attached to will be deactivated."

What do I do?

Try connecting it directly to a usb port on your mac, not via a hub or anything or try using another usb cable -- generally the usb cables that come with devices like the Letcool, Dingoo, etc. are not great

I got a new cord and it works perfect... Problem solved, I suppose!
Thank you for the answer.
