PC no longer recognising hardware when introduced into USB ports
I am unable to download photos from my Samsung Soul moby via either the usb cable or dongle. As soon as I introduce either into the port(s), a message at the bottom r.h.s of my screen says 'found new hardware' but then the Wizard tells me 'A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your hardware is not installed properly' appears every time.
I have uninstalled/installed PC Studio so many times, I'm giddy (and swearing!)
I've also checked the Device Manager. Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers (opened using the + to drop down the content), I have neither “Samsung mobile device” or “unknown device”.
However, in 'Other Devices', I do have a large yellow question mark alongside 'Samsung Mobile Modem.' When I right click to try and update the driver here (not knowing any better!), the Wizard searches for a few seconds (showing 'USB Composite Device'), but then very quickly/almost immediately returns the same message as before, that the data is invalid.
I've broken it haven't I...snif
(Is it too early to have a raspberry vodka I wonder?)

Assuming you can get the driver (which comes as a file, i.e. software, not hardware) how would you install it on your TV ?
According to the 'Technical Information' link on the Web page that you can access via the link I attached with my answer, your adapter is compatible with WiFi-ready Samsung TVs and AV equipment produced between 2010 and 2012. If your TV is not a WiFi-ready Samsung TV or is one produced before 2010, well....If it is a Samsung TV produced after 2012, it probably has WiFI built-in, in which case you don't need any wireless LAN adapter, Samsung or otherwise and the TV did not recognize the adapter because the USB port on the TV that you plugged the adapter in is meant to be used for other devices, e.g. flash drives or portable hard drives.
Whenever you use coaxial or phone lines make sure to use a surge protector power bar. They have a thermistor in them to blow up and protect your equipment. I'd say you have blown a diode or ic that supplies power and converts data from the usbs. It may just be one of your voltage wires from your power supply.
You need to identify the Operating System and version to make it easier for someone to look into this. You might also mention the system brand and model, mainboard make and model for non-name brand. Identify which slot the card is plugged in to.
If it is Windows, does the Hardware see the card ? (Hardware Manager is usually under Properties when you right-click on My Computer).
Check that the card (always power off and unplug the system, I had a neighbor who 'hot swapped' cards in his PC - Oh that guy!) is properly seated (pushed down) and that there is power connected to it (that is a power connector at the rear top edge, right?).
You might also try the card in another PCI slot, in case the one you have used is a problem.
If the card is not recognized, you may need to return it for a replacement. Remember that you wore a grounding strap when you installed it. (nudge nudge wink wink) You followed the installation instructions to the letter.
Does the computer recognize any other USB devices plugged in to the card? (If not, card might be bad). [mice, webcams, flash drives]
Does the drive connect to your slower USB ports (system probably tells you it is a slower port) ? If it works on another USB port, the drive is OK. It is OK to use a different PC to check this because you are checking the drive not the PC here.
The download link for the installation guide did not work for me. I did not see any drivers available for download.
The Belkin site has very specific instructions for installing this adapter in a pc with Vista. These instructions are at: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9050&aid=6112&scid=0 I would first unistall any Belkin Software that has already been installed, shut down the system completely and then restart. After you have fully restarted the system then follow the Belkin Site instructions EXACTLY. Any variation is apt to mean an unsuccessful install. Good Luck and have patience.
the easiest thing to do is to get an usb wireless adapter for about 30 bucks , connect it to your pc or laptop , set it as an access point , then just use the built in wifi on the wii , to get on the net, hopes this works , did for me
connect your phone to computer via USB cable start the Phone Tools software wait for the software to load and states that it's ready open the appropriate tab select the photos from phone by highlighting them select copy to computer
I wondered wat USB version ya had?
Is it Version One? or Two?, as USB1 is real slow... and MOST things these days need USB2 to function...
As w work around I sometimes use is an after market internal PCI USB 2 card, that gives ya USB 2 & Firewire too if ya want..
