Power Surge on Hub Port

  1. Hi when I plug in my Razr V3 cell phone to my pc, I get the "Power Surge on Hub port" message and the USB ports shut down till I unplug the phone. However, I was able to bypass this error and get my USB phone to work when a computer guru let me borrow this special USB cable that had one end that connected to the phone, but the other end had 2 USB plugs that simultaneously connected to 2 of my USB ports instead of one. I was told that this way, the power supply demands of my phone were split and shared betwen the 2 port. Now I'm trying to buy one of these special USB cables but I don't know what it's called. Would really appreciate your help.
