I just got a used gx studio, and after using it for a few minutes I keep on getting a power surge on usb port error and the gx just shuts off. I have tried different usb ports and cables. Updated usb drivers and still get same issue. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this and knows a fix or is the gx I got just a faulty one? I can use any other items on the usb ports and have never had problems.

What kind of computer do you have?
It sounds like it could possible be an under powered computer/port.

Its a Lenovo laptop. I used to own a lexicon alpha interface that broke and never had any problems with that. Also don't have any problems using any other usb devices.

Just ot eliminate something simple, if you run the newest Monkey you have green ticks?
Is there another pc you can try it on?
If it works fine on another pc, it just may be your laptop isn't supplying enough or consistent power to the USB ports.
If that is the case a powered USB hub may help, even though it is recommended not to connect to a hub
