On calling up the internet using our USRobotics 56K Faxmodem USB, I get on the net. At almost the same time, however, these messages appear: (a) "USRobotics Internet Call Notification cannot find a...


I would recommend you attempt to first remove your model software from the pc, first make sure you have the cd / or other drivers for it.

when you have all that removed. Reinstall the software.

That should get rid of the error messages.

Let me know how it goes.

Thank you,

Does it matter which usb port I connect a printer cable to?


No problem as to which port you plug in, but make sure the Com port/RS-232/USB Port is enabled to detect the hardware. The device won't detect the hardware if you haven't made the changes in BIOS or port enabled in device manager (system properties>hardware). Hope this solves the query.

My USB Ports don't work. Is this just a plug and play to replace or do I need to purchase a new CPU.


is it only one or all usb ports that doesn't work. Check your device manager and see if the Usb device are still working or the computer is able to detect it. If it is, and is able to detect and display your Usb ports then they should be working alright. There has been a virus that been going on lately that cause the computer not to read device detected to the usb ports since I had this same promblem before and it wasn't a hardware issue, but a viral issue. Had to run the latest definition and then formated my laptop to factory default.

When I go into My Computer to look at my Com Ports, port 1 is not there anymore. Because of this my modem does not work.


If your modem is no longer detected you may need to reinstall the driver or in Windows-speek you will have to "Update" your driver.

Right click on "My Computer," go to "Properties," and then to "Device Manager." Here you will see a list of all items connected or supported on the computer. Go to "Modems" find your modem and "Update Driver Software." If you do not see it there either then under "Action" at the top of the Device manager screen go to "Add Legacy Hardware." Follow the prompt and install the modem!

My a4-tech camera was not working..i connect it to the USB port and its not detect


That may be not enough just to connect the camera. Sometimes it is necessary to install proper driver first (even before connecting camera to USB). You can check: http://www.a4tech.com/ennew/downloads.asp

You can check the installation of the device: connect the camera, right click on MyComputer, choose Properties, then Hardware, find your device in the list, double click it - that will show you status of the device: either it is working properly or not. If not you may need to update the driver, or even completely uninstall the device and install it again from scratch.

Of course, there is a chance that device is broken, but hopefully it is not the case.
Good luck.

Hard drive


You connected the usb had drive , and if it had an external power source it was on ???

ok right click on mycomputer
choose hardware
choose device manager
right click anything on the tree view and click scan for hardware changes.. Windows Xp should automatically detect and install it..

If you got vista, Right click computer and choose device manager,, right click anything on the tree view and click scan for hardware changes,, windows vista should install it automatically

IF THAT FAILS
verify your usb cable is good
check if your device requires an external power source and verify that it is connected..

connect it to another computer to see if it working

IF ALL THE ABOVE FAILS THE UNIT IS NO GOOD..,, you could try changing the harddrive inside it but i would have been wanting my money back or insurance since it could have been damaged while shipping..

I THINK I MAY HAVE COVERED IT ALL BUT IF I MISSED ANYTHING PLEASE POST IT AND I WILL TRY TO ASSIST
