Question about Sabrent (USB-UF6) (USBUF6) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

No device recognition!

I installed the USB-UF6 into my Dell 4400 pc, 1.89 mhz, with windows xp home. Winows identified the controller card and the ports, but when I plug in a USB device (thumb drive etc.), there is no recognition in any of the external ports. Windows shows the USB driver to be (5.1.2600.2180) and the fire wire port driver as (5.1.2535.0) Also, the windows version is 2002 with service pack 2. Please respond with a solution. Thanks, Bill

Dell Optiplex GX620 will not recognize firewire controller card

1394 drivers should be native to XP, you may be able to correct this by running an SFC scan

Take out the IEEE1394 card
Insert your Windows CD (if you do not have it order a backup from dell)
Exit out of 'install screen'
click Start
click Run
type 'sfc /scannow'
press enter
you should see a progress bar, when finished restart the computer

this compared critical windows files on harddrive vs CD, and replaces missing and corrupt files

PCI adapter did not install

I don't know how you could have installed the drivers BEFORE you installed the hardware... Shut down and UNPLUG the system; REMOVE the new PCI card, then hook up the power and boot the system back to the Desktop. Check the Device Manager to be sure you're not showing any problems; if everything seems back to normal, shut down and unplug the system a second time, then install the PCI card again, restore power, and prepare to reboot the system. Be SURE that ALL of the PCI cards are fully seated in the slots, and that the main power cable (from the PSU) is fully seated in the connector; IOW, check the system just to be sure that nothing has come loose while you've been working inside the case. Next, boot the system again; Windows SHOULD detect the new PCI card during bootup, though it might NOT request drivers, if they are already embedded within XP itself... Once you get back to the Desktop, open the Device Manager and check to be sure that the new card has been detected and properly installed. If you see any question marks, error messages, or exclamation marks, take detailed notes, and post that information here, so we can help you troubleshoot the problem... Good luck; I can only give you general advice about this, because you didn't provide any specific details about your new hardware, but with a little luck, you'll get everything working without any more heartburn...

Machine locks up

install the vendor specifig driver for the PCMCIA. because windows XP sp2 is also able to detect the device and when you push the device online it is detecting and there is some other device which has got same IRQ and that is conflict with this and stop. see any error that is generated in event viwer * run>type "eventvwr" and enter * see the application/system try to detect your error log and see what microsoft says about it. otherwise post the error report Thanks Arun

I have found you a Manual if that is of any help? All I can think of is a faulty cable? Also sometime just changing the PCI slot will help?

Did i just get ripped off?

Did you install the latest drivers for this device? Download and install the latest dell drivers and firware for the cardbus controller. Make sure you are using dell drivers, not microsoft from windows update.
