I have a fairly new iMac with iTunes. I am trying to sync an older version iPod Classic to iTunes on my iMac.  Everytime I plug into the iPod USB port, I get a warning window that states: Because a USB device was drawing too much power from your computer, one or more of your USB devices have been disabled.


I then need to select OK.  I don't have any other USB ports connected.  And I am unable to sync the iPod.

I have all the latest and greatest updates, versions, etc.  Are the older iPods just not compatible with iMac?

Thanks to anyone who can help.
