What operating system are you using? Sometimes (rarely), they have to be powered by a USB hub. Let's make sure that there isn't a short on one of the stepper drivers though. Unplug the stepper motor driver shield (the red board) after unplugging everything and leaving it unplugged for at least 30 seconds. Then, with the blue board by itself, try to plug it in and see if you get the same message.

I fear you have a short on a stepper driver. This could be simply a factory defect on a driver or maybe one was shorted when configured, if you've gotten to that point.
In the course of 5 or 10 mins you can isolate the issue and we can go from there. In the steps below, make sure all power including the USB cable is disconnected for at least 60 seconds prior to removing or installing anything. 1: add just the red board with no drivers on top of the uno board. Connect the USB cable. If no message, proceed. If message pops up, stop and let us know. 2: disconnect all power and wait. Add a stepper driver to the X port. Plug cable in. If no message, proceed. If message pops up, disconnect all power and wait. Remove that stepper driver and place it apart from the others. Install a different driver. Connect the cable. If no message, proceed. If you bet a message, stop and report it to us. 3. Do the same as in step 2 with the other stepper driver ports on the red board. Ideally, one of the stepper drivers has a short and can be replaced by the spare and all is well. If not, let us know. 4. If above 3 fail, try a different USB port. If this is not successful, let us know.
I have seen another customer with a mac just have to use a USB hub when nothing else was wrong. The current draw from the USB port, although low when all is working normally, apparently may exceed what some macs set as the acceptable threshold.
thanks derek. i am now at the office and i try it on a windows 7 based pc and wallah it tries to install drivers but did not found any “windows was unable to install your unknonw device” now i will try downloading the ardunio driver.
WOOHHOOO and it successfully installed on windows pc. so now i have to bring in some USB HUB for my IOS device hope it will also work thanks again DEREK more power to you and to my ports
