Usb on bd610 lg won't work


I don't understand this term: "choose either dvd or usb menu". Do you mean instead ""choose either dvd or cd menu? I've used many usb hard drives and I've never seen such a "menu".

I have a pixma canon MP 250 printer that is supposed to install when the usb is plugged in. It won't do anything when I turn on the printer and plug in the usb. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong!


You could try to install the correct printer driver on your PC. Go to this page, select your operating system, download and install the driver which better suits your platform.
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

I am having trouble getting windows media player


Check and make sure you are plugging it into a 2.0 usb port. If you are I would try another cable to see if maybe you have a bad usb cable. If that does not work then you can check and see if loading the driver for your player on your computer and see if that fixes the issue. Here is how you can do that:
1. Look for the icon named "Computer" or "My Computer" and right click on it and select properties, this will open a window named "System Properties".
2. In the system properties windows click on the tab named "Hardware", and Select "Device Manager".
3. On this window you will see all the devices installed on your computer, look for the device not working properly (printer, dvd rom, keyboard, camera, mp3 player, etc), if there is a bigger problem, more likely you will see a cross by it, or an alert stating there is an issue with it.
4. Right click on the device you where having problems with and select uninstall, it will give you a confirmation, press OK
5. Once the device disappeared from the list, click on the menu bar icon that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass this will cause for the system to scan for any devices not registered and will force the re installation of the device.

Doesnt show in my computer


check the usb drivers by clicking start> right click on my computer >system >hardware>device manager
(in vista just type it in the search bar)
and check the usb drivers by clicking universal serial bus controllers and check if they have an ! sign.
if they do uninstall them and click scan for hardware changes and install the usb drivers again.
If this doesn't work, uninstall then install the usb drivers using the motherboard cd.
or try it to another pc if it works.
or ask for a refund or repair(if it is in warranty it's free)

If I plug it into the laptop it makes the sound when a USB device is plugged in. It says found new hardware, then it wants to install the hardware with the Wizard all goes well until the wizard tells


It seems the Operating System does not have drivers for your new device or some portion of the drivers are corrupted. If you have the drivers cd for the USB stuff, install the drivers without attaching it to the pc ok. Attach the device when prompted or when completed. Make sure that any previous installations of the software and/or the device should be uninstalled. Good luck

Why won't this dell 4600i load any software drivers?


When you download drivers from Dell and execute the file, it normally extracts the drivers to C:\Dell\Drivers and then the folder corresponding to the hardware. If you go to My Computer and do a right click on it and select properties and a window will open with 'System Properties' on it.Select the hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. A list of all of your hardware will come up. If you click on the little cross next to DVD/CR-ROM drives and then do a right click on the drive that's not working and select update driver. Where it says can windows connect to windows update select no, not this time and then next. Then select install from a list or specific location and next. If you then select include this location and enter in the box C:\Dell\Drivers, click on next and hopefully it should find the drivers.
Sometimes the Dell download will start a utility to find the drivers from the internet for you and install them. One way or the other, this should hopefully solve your problem.

First of all not very computer savy. having trouble with my printer. (hp deskjet f 380)i'm having trouble installing. a screen pops up that says wizard deleted by user?


USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.

Problem installing driver


I first found that when I plugged my player into my computer it registered it as a MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) device and in turn never showed up as a storage device on my computer. I fixed this by going into my Control Panel -> System Icon -> Hardware Tab -> Device Manager button. Clicking on the “System Devices” tab should have “Walkman” or MTP device. Right click on it and go to properties, now before doing anything it should say “Location — —— Location 0 (Walkman)” if not try unplugging the walkman and see if the MTP device you’re looking at is removed from the list, just to make sure it’s the right device we’re looking for.
If you’ve confirmed it’s the Walkman, click on the “Driver tab” and click on “Update Driver…”. Then click on the “Install from a list or a specific location (Advanced)” option and click “Next”. Now select the “Don’t search. I will choose the driver to install.” and click next. It should now bring up 2 driver choices, one being “MTP Device” and the other “USB Mass Storage Device”. Select the USB option and select next, it will then install your walkman as a USB storage device and after that’s done. It should be a matter of unplugging and plugging the Walkman back in and it should show up on your storage options in “My Computer”"

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal
