That is typically a general error seen on many devices.
Normally it means you are plugging in a USB device (your hard drive) and it requires more power than the USB port can put out. Many TV's and DVR's don't like USB powered hard drives, they want hard drives that plug into the wall AC outlet for their power. If your hard drive has a second USB plug, or a AC plug, you will likely have to use them in addition to just plugging the USB cord into the TV.

External Hard Drives


Most problems involving "external hard drives" have 1 thing in common: "Machine won't recognize the hardware". This has been an issue ever since they were introduced to the market. In most cases, this involves a hardware conflict amongst USB devices. To verify if this is the case:<br /> <ol> <li>Unplug all USB devices</li> <li>Reboot the computer</li> <li>Plug in the external hard drive</li></ol>The hard drive should now be detected. Once detected, you may now plug your other USB devices back in. <br /><br /><br />

Windows xp sp3 stop error message 7e usb


Why not just pull it out instead of clicking on safely remove hardware? Try it and see if it works. Sounds like your usb drive is not windows 7 compatible. Or windows 7 has some driver issue which is not uncommon.

Mine keeps saying "USB Over


The power adapter could be faulty.
If you get an error message"Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB deviceinto the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive currentthat the USB port cannot supply. In case such as this, youneed to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer'sUSB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

No Hard disk detected / boootable device


<span>When the computer/laptop cannot see a boot file/disk on either the hard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message </span>- <span>"No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press any key"</span><span><br /><br />First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk.</span><br /><span>If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.<br />Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.<br />If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.<br /><br />A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if this computer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard drive is faulty.<br /><br />To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.</span>

Usb not recognised


Hello ak1979 ...

1. You're plugging in your Transend USB flash drive to your computer's USB port (as you've done many times successfully before with this SAME flash drive)?

2. It says "windows not recognise usb drive due to malfunction"?
a. Is that EXECTLY what the error says?
b. Is "it" an error dialog (window that pops up), or an error message from your Windows Event error logs? If a dialog, are there any pertinent error message entries in your Windows Event (System) log [Start > Run > type "eventvwr.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"]?

Try a bit of deductive troubleshooting:
  1. Restart (Reboot) your system [for a fresh start, if you will].
  2. Try plugging in your USB flash drive again, but in a DIFFERENT USB port.
  3. Try plugging in ANY OTHER "known good" USB device into the same USB port(s) used thus far that failed.
NOTE: If you EVER get any indication Windows recognizes the flash drive (like no error msg, or it shows in "My Computer"), IMMEDIATELY perform a "Check Disk" on it:
  1. Start > Run... > type "cmd" (without quotes), then "OK".
  2. Type "chkdsk DRIVE_LTR: /f" (without quotes), then hit "Enter" [where DRIVE_LTR is the drive letter of your USB drive]. EXAMPLE: chkdsk E: /f
Good luck, and please post back:
  • to provide any corrections/updates/clarifications.
  • if you have any further questions.
  • to let me know how things work out.
