Re: usb device needs more power

Hey @bmmm

Thanks for the post.

The suggestions in this Support article may help: Why does my Roku® streaming device not recognize my external USB drive? Try giving it a shot!

Keep us posted if there's any difference after.

All the best,
Kariza

@bmmm 

You didnt mention your Roku model # and firmware version: Settings/System/About

If its a Roku TV and you are plugging a device into one of its USB ports for power, try powering it with an external USB AC adapter instead of the TV's USB ports.

Re: usb device needs more power

get a small inexpensive power strip.  USB ports do not have enough power many times

sorry.  I may have misunderstood your post.  If you are not using the USB port my suggestion is worthless
