Make sure your USB port are being inable in CMOS setup utility.
Goto CMOS/BIOS SETUP UTILITY , by pressing F2 or DEL button.
Enable the use of USB in your system like USB MOUSE, KEYBOARD and etc.

Hello Tewabech,
Have you tried different USB ports? Does the drive require a seperate power source?

I need to down load pic of my camra


Was there are cable came w. camera? Usually a mini usb cable... don't have to be the original cable as long as they are the same type of connectors. Connect the camera to pc w. cable and power up the camera.. that should start up Microsoft picture import or external storage. If it opens MS picture import follow the direction on the pop up window. If exteranl storage, open folder to view files, then select and copy paste to your pc. If all your pictures are saved on memory card, you could just pop the memory card out of camera and insert to mem. card reader in your pc or laptop and copy and paste or move them. this won't do anything or pictures save on cameras built in memory.

New keyboard needs to entered into computer


Hello,

No for sure not.

Standard keyboards don't need drivers or things like that, they are auto recognized by system. Sometimes some fucntions like smart touches or additional keys may not works but keyboard itself must.

Are you sure you put it into correct PS2 port (the purple one, NOT the green one)?

Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

Cheers,
Mike

Won't do anything after computer recognizes it.


you need to go to the administrative tools/storage and ensure that the drive is partitioned properly for the operating system to see it, once partitioned you will need to format the drive.

USB Ports don't recognize typical thumb drive, mass storage devices


I'm not completely sure, but this may be a result of faulty drivers.
Try googling the brand name and the word: "Driver"; along with any other details about the device. (Model No. et cetera.)

CD/DVD thinks there's no disk in.


- mass storage device in = SD card.

- The DVD/CD can't recognize any type of disk inserted: Replace the CD-DVD unit, it is with problem.

Computer will not recognize the Seagate FreeAgent Pro 500 GB


If the hard drive is new and still unformatted, you will need to format it. Confirm that it is recognized in disk management (start>control panel>administrative tools>computer management) Go to the list on the left and expand "storage." Then click disk management. You should see your drives listed. Find your seagate 500GB drive, right click on it and then click format. It will take awhile for a 500 GB drive but once it is done, the drive should be usable.

WARNING: this will delete any files on the drive, meaning that if it is not new and you have files on it already, then they will be deleted.

I ve just bought a lacie desktop hard disk 500gb and its not doing anything


New hard drives are "Raw" and have to be formated for any Operating system to recognize it. If the Hard drive is installed I would suggest, if you have a Win98 cd, boot from that, select with cd rom support, at the prompt type in fdisk, Fdisk will display all fixed disks present, select your new HD and configure it, with large disk support, etc.

If you don't have a win98cd download GParted live cd and burn on cd. and boot with that it will display all hard drives and you can select your new HD and format it to fat 32 or ntfs or linux ext partitions/swap files.
