Question about 2wire PC Port Phoneline HomePNA 10Mbps USB Adapter

PC no longer recognising hardware when introduced into USB ports

Hi guys...

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?)

any help gratefully appreciated

Sounds to me like you need to install just the driver.

firstly uninstall PC Studio.
then visit
http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/download/supportDown.do?group=mobilephones&type=mobilephones&subtype=slide&model_nm=SGH-U900&disp_nm=SGH-U900&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=SW&vType=R&prd_ia_cd=01011800

the last link is just the usb driver for the phone. download it and install.

then reinstall PC studio.

also incase I have missed something the link ablove also gives you acces to different versions of PC studio XP or Vista.

My pc doesnt recognise my phone


If your pc want to recognise your phone, you need to install motorola pc suite in your system. That will be available in the CD that you got with mobile. If you are not having you can download from internet freely from motorola web site. After installing connect your phone to pc through usb cable and open pc suite phone will get recognise.

Hope you will succeed....

Did you receive a disc and if you did not. Simply go to the page of the manufacturer and down load the driver, then the Plug and play should recognize it..

Cannot be recognised on my USB ports


The CD supplied does not have drivers on it. This is a flash player so your PC should recognise it automaticaly.

If this is not happening, please try installing an MTP Porting Kit via the microsoft.com website.

Wont connect from lg pc suite


Happened to me a few times. Try restarting your computer but leaving it plugged in so your computer already recognises what it is.

If you plug it in your computer takes 10 minutes or so figuring out what it is and whether you need to download anything additional for it to work. If you restart your computer by the time you click LG PC Suite it will have already recognised what it is and will work. If your computer has wireless settings you could try connection through bluetooth!

I recently dropped Music and photo's onto a SanDisk micro SD card. All was fine, but the next morning, my Samsung Soul was not recognising the memory card. Nor was my home pc able to read the card either....


There are some people out there with "retrievers". I believe that its a hardware that retrieves data from broken hardware. Ask the locals around.
