    It's the power draw.

    That is ambiguous.
    USB power draw or total power draw?

    I'm going to go with total power draw. Reason: Pi warns with undervoltage errors and if I add more devices, the Pi simply won't work at all. I assume that if it was a USB power draw problem, then only the USB devices would not work.

    In any case, it doesn't work, so other solutions are needed.

    The issue there is that you can in theory simply slap a bigger PSU on it
    its a total power draw issue

    Ahhhh... Now I understand.

    When I set up a Pi as some sort of server, I always get a nice big power supply. And I've had the problem with USB devices pulling too much power before.

    But, ya, I never really did the research on that. I just assumed that the Pi couldn't handle it and did an "end run" around the problem.
