Anyone get the message on the PS3

"The maximum amount of power that can be supplied to usb devices has been reached. Please remove at least one device"

My son is getting it on his 80gb system.

He has the Turtle Beach Foxtrot CoD headset plugged in and that is all.

any suggestions?

Have two other systems running them also, but no problems

Gee Thanks!
No xBox fanboys in this family. shake head

Anyways, noticed that he was using a Non PS3 cable to charge his controller.
thinking that was what the problem was... after letting it sit, it seems to have solved the problem.

thanks again for responding everyone.
