M5 StickC (Device drawing too much power error on MAC and Windows)

  • Hi,

    I just received my new
    M5StickC+ Mini IoT Development Kit with HATs.
    The first time i connected it up to my iMac if turned on and the display was active, I then disconnected the unit and installed the UIFLow and plugged the unit back in. As soon as it was connected i received an error saying the device was drawing too much power and it would not boot, either from pressing the button or being connected to any other USB power supply.
    Has this happened to anyone else, if so how did you fix it or is it because the unit itself is defective in someway as other USB C devices work fine with my iMac and windows 10 laptop
