You should be able to just splice the wires together if your asking what i'm thinking. the port your talking about is the smaller port typically found for use of printers and cameras?
If that is the case you should be able to attach the two and i would try to find a diagram layout for you.
I look forward to your post

Printer not talking to desk top.


Please check usb cable first, make sure that it is ok. Then check usb port,move the usb cable to other port. Then check if usb cable and port are ok, try to connect other printer or device by using that usb cable and port. If works well means the usb port on printer got a problem. But if still not work the problem could be on usb cable or usb port on computer.
If you are sure that both the printer and computer are ok, try to reinstall the printer driver. Good luck!.

Trying to connect HP Laserjet 2100 (works fine with XP) to Pavilion dv7 with Win7 64 bit Professional. I downloaded the PCL5 driver from HP but it will not print. I am using a Manhattan parallel to USB...


Did you download the Win 7 64 bit drivers for this printer. If not i suggest try downloading the drivers from the following link

Check the USB connection
The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Check the back of your product and the back of your computer to make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely.
After you make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:

  • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
  • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (3 feet, 3 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
  • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the cause of the problem.
  • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
  • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.

I got a GR-DVL820u digital video camera. I wanted to transfer the videos to the PC and burn the CDs. I was supplied with only A/V cable but not the firewire cable which will connect the camera with my PC....


Firewire DV and USB are two different type of cable. This camera offers both, but the USB connection is only used to transfer still photos, not video. Most PCs don't have a socket for a Firewire DV connection, but you can install a Firewire add-on board in one of the PC bus slots. Then you need a Firewire cable with a small connector on the camera end and a bigger connector on the PC end.

You can download a manual from

this link

and also order cables, but they should be available in any camera shop.

How can i charge my battery with USB cable? i have problem with baterry or with baterry's port, i dont know exactly, please help me, thnxx


Because your question is NOT so accurate and clear, I will bring out to you the following scenario:

1- In case you have a problem in the electrical wired cable itself that hold the transfered power to charge the laptop battery then you can't do anything except buying another electrical charger.

2- In case you have a problem with the laptop battery, you can simply remove that battery and straightly connect the electrical wired cable to the slot power of laptop.

3- You recommended charging your batter with the USB cable, which is impossible due to the following reasons:
a) USB cables assemblies are used in the transmission of data across networks in case they are network
b) Cable assemblies are collections of wires or cables banded into a single unit with connectors on at least one end.
c) USB connectors are used with universal serial bus (USB) ports. They can be used to connect USB products together, or to connect USB wires and peripherals to other standard port types.
d) The cable assembly may be used for various computer applications like connecting mice, keyboards, printers, modems or other peripheral devices.

The concept of the above description is that you need a cable that transfer to you a specific voltage from a generated magnetic chain to the receiving destination.

Therefore, USB cable have a huge difference in the capacity of the Electricity cable, where USB cables are for data transfer, and Electrical Cables are for Electric Power Voltage (EPV) Transfer.

I know that you haven't ask for all of this, but the main idea of my explanation is to clarify on why there's NO USB cable that can charge your battery, and those that are charging your phone are doing that through the very low voltage that comes from the vibration of chain magnetic into the USB cable transfered from a higher voltage i.e. Computer, Socket Power, etc...

Video transfer


If you're using a Windows Vista Operating System it'snot possible to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB connection. The videos from the tape camcorders cannot be transferred to Windows Vista Operating System as there is no USB Streaming ooption available on the Windows Vista Operating System. The Camcorder uses the USB Streaming function to transfer the videos to the Computer. You may wish to purchase a i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer in order to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.
or
There is an update for driver on the Sony website to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB cable.
http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/downloads/downloads.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-HC42E&f=usbdrven_vista

You may also try installing the driver update for the Camcorder. The i.LINK cable gives a better video transfer qulaity than the USB transfer. The i.LINK cable used to connect the Camcorder to the computer depends on the number of pins available on the i.LINK/FIREWIRE port on the Computer. The i.LINK port on the Computer is a D shaped port which is labelled as i, DV, IEEE1394 and Firewire.

Can´t install my photosmart C3180 on my Windows XP


Hi,

Hope this helps. Be sure the USB port at BIOS setting are enable. And also, you have to update the USB device or uninstall the unknown error (it may contain missing USB driver). Restart the computer and place your motherboard CD installer in the CDROM browse the folder where the USB driver is located. You have to resolve first this error before proceeding to next possible steps. Another way of installing printer or any USB devices; Dettached first the USB cable connecting to PC or laptop, Install the driver (CD installer) when prompt to connect the USB cable connect the cables and turn the printer on, browse manually where the file being looked and is located.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
