The little box kept popping up--"New Device Found" along with it's little pop sound letting me know the computer is trying to configure something. The only problem was that I hadn't plugged anything new into it. "Unable to configure device" it told me. I hit cancel. Again--same thing. Cancel. Unable. Cancel.
What's the deal here?
While rearranging things on my desk a few minutes earlier, I had accidentally dropped the end of my iPhone charger cable into my coffee cup.
