    Hi,
    I've tried it the Dongle in both front USB ports. Should I be trying any at the back of the PC?

MY TRANSCEND PENDRIVE NOT WORKING


Possible solutions:

*See if the USB port is enabled in bios.


*Goto Run> Services> Plug and play > Properties(Right Click)> See if it is set 'Automatic'.

*Try disabling USB2 in your bios, restart your operative system, and if still not detected your pen drive, try making OS detect new hardware or hardware changes (to crange usb2 drivers to usb1 drivers).

*If the above steps don't work for you, it might be a driver conflict. Try installing the Transcend USB driver from the manufacturer site, and see if that works for you.(Check in Device Manager, If there is a conflict after installing the new driver : Rollback Driver).

Please let me know the feedback on this.

I need to upgrade my usb port 1.1 to 2.0


The easiest way for you to do this is to get a USB 2.0 pci card and install it into the computer. Here is one that is available for $10

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124008&cm_re=usb_2.0_pci_card-_-15-124-008-_-Product

These are fairly easy to install. It does require you to open the computer case. Remember to unplug the computer from the electricity before starting and properly ground yourself before touching any components in the case(static electricity can damage them). You should use a grounding strap that hooks to your wrist and attatches to the case or touch the case each time before touching any components. Once the case is open you will need to locate an empty PCI slot. Then use a screwdriver to remove the metal "Blank" that is covering the opening at the back of the computer. Then you can insert the new card with the USB ports facing the back of the computer and use firm but gentle pressure to insert the card into the port. Once the card is fully seated secure it with the screw you removed from the blank. Then plug the computer back in and run any installation software that came with the card if required and that is it.

3network mobile dongle wont work


Hi,
Three options:
1). Try another USB port on the PC / Laptop. I have discovered that some USB ports mess up sometimes.
2). Check if you have a firewall software on this computer (some of those that normally pops up with messages at the bottom-right of your screen saying things like 'Allow, Block, etc". If you have one of such, you may want to go into the setting and disable firewall briefly and test your Dongle again. If it now works, then Allow the Dongle in the firewall settings.
3). Uninstall the Dongle. Shutdown and restart your computer. Go to Program files and delete the folder where the program was installed. Then use the CD that came with your Dongle to do an install. Then finally connect your Dongle. Should work.

Need drivers for nikkai usb to serial converter rs232


I purchased the Nikkai USB to RS232 adapter from Maplin and could not get the device working. (Maplin staff not much help!) The lead uses the Prolific PL-2303 device but Prolific do not supply the drivers to end users.
However I found the drivers that appear to work at:

http://www.cooldrives.com/wividrforprc.html

This then recognises the lead as a COM port. So far everything seems to work OK.
(Null modem check and basic 9600 data transfer.)

I hope that helps everybody.

Installing hp pos pole display


Download the HP Pole Display Windows OPOS package (sp42198) which will install both the Windows drivers for the device and the OPOS drivers for the device.
The following is the Windows Device Manager screenshot after all the drivers are loaded for the HP USB Pole Display:

NOTE : The COM port number might be different on customer's unit.

Note: The pole display driver will automatically assign the next available virtual port in the system.


HP Pole Display Setup Software Utility

Download sp41532 - HP USB Line Display Configuration Utility from HP website.
Run the file and the Utility will come up as shown below
The COM Port would always be COM1.


mma01_0031982.jpg PoleDisplaySetup.jpg


Change the selection to the COM port listed in the Device Manager of the unit.

Click on the Welcome Message Tab and Change the Text and Click on “Write to Pole Display

Now the text should be displayed on the Pole Display.

Hi-speed USB host


this means that you do not have a USB 2 port or do not have the USB2 drivers installed correctly if it does,

check your chipset drivers and spec of laptop with manufacturers.

if you do not have usb2 you can get a USB 2 PCMCIA card to supply this functionallity.

it is possible this is a USB low power issue as this is a laptop, but check your drivers and spec first.

Kingston DTI/512 DataTraveler USB 2.0 not detected when pluugged into USB port on my HP 6910 laptop but works on other HP's and other PC's


This MAY be a problem of the age of your operating system.

For instance, all USB devices have to have the Drivers installed in a Windows 98 and earlier system (because there were no USB devices back then and therefore no drivers were available to be included in the operating system).

Your Operating System may need to have the drivers installed as well, whereas the other computers that you have tried it on may have later operating systems, with preinstalled drivers in their systems, and therefore recognise the USB device and automatically install the drivers when the unit is installed.

Did your unit come with a disk? Then try installing the drivers from that disk and see if this fixes your problem.

If it doesn't, have you tried different USB ports on your computer to see if it is just a problem with the ports?

Good luck
