Software compatibility for TV-USB U728

I have installed TV-USB U728 but the driver in the CD is not been recognized in my computer. I think it has problems or conflicts with Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit). Is there any other software compatible with this version of Windows (64.bit) in order to use my TV-USB? Or, which other solution(s) I can take?

Geniatechs Website lists Drivers for Vista 32bit but not 64bit.

I don't know enough about 64bit Vista to know wheter or not it allows you to run 32 bit drivers in compatability mode or not but seeing as its refusing to install your drivers I'm guessing not. So heres a list of possible solutions for you.

Check for existance of 3rd party drivers (Perhaps someone out the who is skilled at coding has the same device and built and released viable drivers)

Dual boot with an Operating system that is compatable with your current driver (Win XP or Vista 32bit)

Pester Geniatechs support to release 64 bit drivers (Perhaps if enough people demand it they will take notice)

Research similiar devices that have 64bit drivers (From my experience there aren't many manufacturers that are releasing devices with drivers for 64bit Windows)

Might look into Drivers for Linux/Unix (they've been developing for 64bit for a long time, and if you have Vista Ultimate, it includes code to run UNIX/Linux code natively)

Hope this helps

    Possible other solution for you.



    Vista Ultimate has "Virtual PC" available either preinstalled or installable from the disc.



    If you have a disc for a 32bit version of Windows or a linux disc you can run that in a Virtual machine so you can utilize your device.



    Hopefully this helps you

Well here is what i was looking for online but couldn't find who make's that. if i was you i would go to the website of who make that tv-usb u728 and see if they have an update for the drivers. If not you can try changing the compatibility of the program it uses not the driver you can't change that go to the program folder that you use and right click it open properties this should open a window now click on the compatibility tab check the box next to run this program in .... make sure it sayes run it in windows xp service pack 2. then hit apply and give it a try. If this doesn't work and they have no new driver's for you i'm sorry but it will not work on vista 64.

First, syncing is the transfer of data between computer software's that are designed to acquire and share with another entity. The sync function usually is embedded in the computer program. Once the computer recognizes compatible software that has several capabilities including transferring data, a USB connection capacity should be achievable. Usually devices that are designed for data transferability should be capable of acquiring a USB connection either as physical cables or wireless Bluetooth technology. The power to sync is contained in the software program. Once software that has sync capabilities is installed on the computer, any USB cable that is attached to an empty port would display a user message asking for further procedures. For example, USB connections on the computer that has media software's would display device recognizes link requiring data transfer. The solution lies in the software that is relied on for sync capabilities. Acquire Windows Media player, Real One player, or ITunes player as downloadable onto the computer to achieve compatibility.


Important Notes

USB ports are available on all computers as versatile connection links to devices that would require communications. The computers original systems are expected to recognize USB cable connection as manufacturers default. Usually, the computer is likely capable of upgrading several software programs that would least communicate with the USB. For example, the program suit installed has compatibility requirements to perform on the computer as an entity. Also, the program suit requires compatibility with USB connection for another device that would be connected to the computer. Attempt to install media transfer programs that are designed with sync features.

Cannot see HD in toshiba satalitte l40170 in booting


In some markets the L40-170 is sold without an Operating System.

I assume this is in booting off a Windows XP CD, as Vista, Win7 and Linux (Ubuntu) will recognise the HD on boot.

The L40-170 has a SATA-Hard drive with no compatible mode. WinXP will not natively recognize it.

You need to download the SATA driver from Toshiba-Europe and either:

a)Place it on a USB floppy disk and install it when the Windows installer prompts for external drivers. (This is unlikely to work unless you have a Toshiba branded device)

b) Integrate the sata drivers into a windows installation using software like nLite. (You might as well integrate all the L40-170 drivers and the XP service packs at the same time.)

Caution: Don't use software to extract the drivers off a working machine, the drivers required for windows installer are different from those required by the OS. Rather download them from Toshiba.

If you have the original 3D file manager disk, the drivers are on there. In XP, With the sewing machine unplugged from the computer, insert the disk in the cd drive and explore the disk. Copy the "drivers" folder to your desktop. Plug in the Pfaff 2140/2170 to the usb port. Windows will ask for a driver disk. browse to the drivers folder on your desktop and open it, windows will highlight the driver it needs and click "OK". This worked on my wife's 2140 upgraded to 2170 software and you must always use the same usb port, or go through this routing again.

Issue in installing OS


OK. Well the error appears because the installation process doesn't recognize your hard drive device. And from the error I suppose it is a SATA HDD. You have two options: 1. Enter Bios, look for hard drive settings and change the mode from AHCI to Compatibility 2. Put the Motherboard CD into the optical device, insert a diskette, boot from the CD and select from the menu the option that is says something like "Sata drivers" or something like this. Restart the computer, insert the Windows XP CD and press F6 when it ask you if you want to install a new hard drive. Select to install the drivers from the diskette and continue the installation as normal
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment.

I have installed the disk "dolphin 1.5" Digital Photo Frame with key chain (photo viewer V208G2 and am unable to get the thing installed. I run Windows Vista


s.wingard,

Are you sure the Dolphin Digital Photo Frame is compatible with Windows Vista? When I searched, all I saw that was supported was XP and 2000. Once drivers are installed and they do not work, it's best to uninstall the driver (in the control panel in the system hardware configurations). Delete the driver and restart the computer with the picture fram plugged into the USB. You should be asked if you want to install the drivers. You then pick the custom location for drivers and browse to your drive with CD. You should be able to find the drivers somewhere within the disk (usually contained in it respective OS Folder e.g. WINXP). Load that particular driver.

Hope this helps,
Bill

USB Device not Recognized


The camera should have come with software which includes the correct drivers. Did you install the drivers before connecting the camera? The camera simply may not be compatible with your OS.

Hi vahik_avakia,
Download the Windows 7 driver v9.6.3.1 here: www.eecrest.com/Drivers_and_Manual/150win7-driver.rar

Open the 'Drivers' folder after extracting the downloaded rar file & run setup.exe to install only the driver. Else run 'autorun.exe' from root of extracted folder to get separate options to install Blaze HDTV, Driver etc.

Hope this helped.

Driver software


The hardware has to be vista compatible and the manufacturer can provide the vista driver for that hardware. If they do not support vista for your hardware, then it is not vista compatible. Microsoft has a lot of drivers for a lot of devices, but there are more devices out there that are not ready for vista. Goto the device manufacturer and see if they have a driver for vista.
