Unplug your USB devices
Go to Control Panel, Hardware, Device manager.
Delete all your USB ports, then restart the computer. XP will reinstall them. Then try your USB device.

Also, try the USB in the front and back, see if it is a connection problem on either one.

Unable to open dell dimension 8250 cd-rom drive


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

You might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard


If there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a straightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive.

Hope this helps.

I have a Dell Dim 2400 and no connection with HP Deskjet 3070A.


Charles, has this combination worked previously, have you been able to print from your Dell Dimension 2400 to your HP Deskjet 3070A successfully?

If the answer to the above is Yes, then if you believe that the printer is still working correctly and you can test this with a different computer able to print to it, you should consider uninstalling and re-installing the HP software and device drivers for this printer.

If you have not printed to this printer successfully previously, have you tested the printer with a different computer and proven it is still working fine?

If the printer works fine to a different computer then providing you are using the same USB cable to connect to your Dell 2400, the problem needs to be narrowed down further.

Check that you can plus other USB devices into the port on the Dell used for the HP printer - if these work, then your USB port is good - if not, try another port if you have one.

If your USB hardware is good, then again you are left with the need to uninstall and re-install the HP software and device drivers - it may be worth trying to download the latest version of such software if available. HP tend to update their All-in-One software on a regular basis.

I have tried in vain to get the USB connection on my Westell 6100 to work. Are there some tricks to making this happen? The ethernet connection will work fine, but I cannot get the USB setup to work at...


I suggest that you use ethernet connection instead of the USB connection.

Ethernet is more stable that USB, you less likely to experience dropped connections.

Also take note that you can only use one connection at a time. You CANNOT use Ethernet on one computer, then USB on the other computer.

But if you insist to use the USB connection, you need to install the drivers. Once the usb cable is connected to the modem and computer, you will get a found new hardware wizard screen. Then you will need to insert the CD that came with the adapter to your computer.

If the found new hardware wizard did not appear, check your device manager and look if there is a USB adapter with a question mark or exclamation point. Right click on the USB adapter then click reinstall.

It should detect the drivers from the cd.

Good luck and have a great day!

I am looking to find out what I need to get my USB driver installed back to the internet. I have Dell dimension 2350 desktop. I re-done it all but didn't have any connection to the internet, so I installed...


The USB connection does not normally have anything to do with the internet. You can try updating all your drivers with a driver update program, or look for them manually on manufacturer's websites.
Does the USB device show an error in the Device Manager?

I put the usb port in the computer and it will say the computer has found new hardware and for me to install it when i do it will say hardware can't install. what do i do?


Selecting or switching automatically MTP < > MSC
Connecting the player before a media software program is installed, the player will connect as a flash drive also called removable disk in MSC mode.
There are 2 settings for connection mode in the player, MTP and MSC.
See page 36 of the manual for more information and how to set the USB mode:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MP705_MN.pdf

USB mode MTP
Install Windows Media Player 11 for MTP connection to the computer.
When needing a media player update from Microsoft see:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx


USB mode MSC
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Solution:
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

WITH SERVICE PACK 3 (WIN XP) MY 795 IS "DISCONNECTED" NO MATTER WHAT! PLEASE HELP!!


The iFP-795 is a player that has connection type UMS
(also called MSC): seeing the player as a removable disk:
Go to next site to see the connection type:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/index.asp?code=0300
and click on connection. Scroll down to see the iFP-700 series listed in the connection type UMS.
UMS = Universal Mass Storage
MSC = Mass Storage Class

With XP sp3 the computer Operating System has setup USB connections with new drivers, that support both UMS (= MSC) and MTP connections.
MTP = Media Transfer Protocol

When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine: ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Just post a comment if you need more help.

Manufacturer-spplied hardware support disk


You can go to support.dell.com and get all the drivers that originally shipped with your system. It's a bit of a pain-especially the first time around but when you do get them downloaded, burn them to a disc and store it away for future use. I was a tad dismayed the first time I found out that Dell puts all their drivers on a disc separate from the OS so it's a 2 stage process when you have to reimage but at least they do make them available. The only b**ch is when you need the network drivers to get there in the first place! In that case, you'll need a buddy's computer and internet connection to download them. I recommend a flash drive as it is easier to transport. Let me know if I can help further.
