@keren:

That error message somehow means your USB connector wasn't plugged in properly to the camera. Another thing is that windows xp doesn't have driver for your camera that's why it wasn't recognized. what's the brand of your camera though? If you just want to transfer your pix from camera to pc or vice versa, use a card reader like the guy above me said.

To view the pictures on the computer, remove the card from the battery compartment and put it in a card reader connected to your computer.

I'm assuming that you have tried a different USB socked with the same result. This has nothing to do with the software, it's a hardware fault. You can check that simply by booting from a Linux Live-Cd and see if the webcam is recognized. Most likely it has just failed.
This is unfixable, you will have to buy a new one.

Hi,

Try out all these options one by one t fix your problem:

1)just try to unplug the device and have it connected into another PC (with USB port) and let it be recognized by that PC... when it is recognized, plug it again to the original PC it was previously plugged. i know it doesn't make sense but i believe there are some electrical factors that may cause this malfunction.

Another way is... just leave it UNPLUG for half a day or a whole day, and plug it again... probably it will recognize the device itself.
2)install the mainboard drivers of USB so that it can run USB 2.0 devices..........that's it..........

3)Backup your important data in the system partiotion. Then format it and reinstall windows XP fresh copy

4)Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.

In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.

Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;

HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Usb

Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.

A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying icon_smile.png.

Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.

Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;

1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)

2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.

3. USB Root Hub(s)

4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)

Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.

Goodluck,

Setting the Date and Time manually does not influence the behaviour of the camera. However, if the camera is not 'recognized' by the computer: Check if the USB cable is properly fitted in the camera. Put the other end in a different computer USB port. The computer should see the camera as a Removeable USB Device. If the problem persists, connect the camera to another computer and see if it is recognized.

I could not find a Konica Minolta Model DG-5D camera listed on the support web pages.
I did find a "DYNAX5D/Maxxum5D" that had driver software for Windows 98/98se.
If you're using XP or later, these drivers probably won't help you though.
Can you confirm the model number?

USB Device not Recognized


The camera should have come with software which includes the correct drivers. Did you install the drivers before connecting the camera? The camera simply may not be compatible with your OS.

Lacie 250GB Hard Disk is not being recognized by PC (Windows XP)


Some PC's cannot deliver enough power to the USB devices to function properly through the USB port.
Does your Lacie hard disk have a power input connector if so conect a power adapter to it before you put it into your USB port.

Another alternative, get a powered USB hub connect it into your computer then connect the Lacie hard drive to the powered USB hub.

Try some other USB device (memory-stick, printer, camera) in the USB slot in the Vista computer, just to "prove" that Vista will recognize _any_ USB device connected to that slot.
