Printer gets stuck...Configuration problem? Overheating?

I broke my card reader so i'm using my usb cable to connect to the printer. I didn't have this problem when i was still using the SD card:

 

Somehow the printer head just stops moving in the middle of printing.

 

According to the report my device is not configured?

 

OSError: '[Errno 6] Device not configured' @ machineCom.pyo:_readline:483

 

I have updated cura and firmware but when i run checks on first run wizard the communication works but it doesn't read the temperature.

 

I wasn't getting any max temperature reports but could i have overheated the motors? I did use my printer a lot these past days.

 

 

What can i do?

    Try:

    1) printing with a different computer

    2) Buy a very inexpensive USB hub (to amplify the signal)

    3) Turning off all screen saver features and all power saver features in your operating system.

    4) Using a laptop (which has a more stable power supply)
