  • The driver for the device is faulty. When you plug in a USB device, the computer should load and then configure the device without ever requesting a device driver. If the computer prompts you for a device driver, check the information that came with the device or go to the manufacturer's website to see if a driver is available.
  • The USB port might be defective. If the USB device is connected to a defective port, the device will not work. Try plugging the device into a different port. If all the USB ports are being used, unplug a device that you know works, and then plug the problem device into the port that device was using.
    If the device is plugged into a secondary USB hub with other USB devices, unplug the device from the hub, and then plug the device directly into a port on your computer.
  • Other USB devices might be drawing too much power from the hub. The device you are trying to use might require all the available power or bandwidth that your computer can provide. If other USB devices are connected to the computer and are drawing power from it, the first device might not work. If any other devices are drawing power from the hub, try disconnecting them, and then see if your device works. If this solves the problem, you might want to obtain a USB hub with its own power supply so that you have adequate power for all devices.

    My computer will not recgonize my 640 gb/Go-My passport Elite. The USB port works with other devices.

    Did you try the disk on a different computer?
    Check the disk manager when the disk is plugged to see if the disk shows up there. Could be a partition or drive letter assignment issue.

    HP Pavilion zv6000: USB ports are inop. USB port on rear of computer works fine. USB port on left/front will power my flash drive, but the light stays on constantly. The flash drive is does NOT show up in...

    After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

    So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
    If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

    Otherwise you can also do the same.

    Type in the product no. on Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

    I hope this will help.

    My system (Sony VIAO running VISTA) will not recgonize my external harddrive (MyBook 500gb). Per the instructions it is supposed to be automatically recgonized upon startup/plugging in the usb.

    Vista operating system is built to be security conscious about what they must accept or deny.But in any case,
    1.check to make sure that the usb cable use for the connection is healthy.

    2. Test the device with a different pc or laptop to be sure the fault is not from the device.

    3.make sure that the usb port is enabled if not access your setup utility to do so

    Computer does not recgonize my hp printer, running windows vista home edition 32-bit oprerating system

    • have you installed the driver for the HP printer,if not do so.
    • is the HP printer Vista compatible, it should say in the literature that came with it .if its an older printer probably not compatible.
    • follow the installation directions fully ( plug the usb cable in when it asks for it etc).
    • use a different usb cable as it may be faulty.
    • check the usb port with another item such as a memory stick to ensure it is working or use another port.
    • remove any printers installed prior to trying to install HP printer and reboot the system.
    hope this is of help to you
