Philips DVT5000 not detected on USB ports by Windows 7

Device draws power from the USB port, and responds by displaying a picture of a link between the device and the computer (on the devices tiny screen), but the computer shows no indication that the device exists. Same thing happens on my laptop and my desktop computers. Device doesn't show up in drives under device manager, or under in the folder view of my computer. I uninstalled and reinstalled the USB drivers, but to no avail. It doesn't work in any of the USB ports (or rather, Windows doesn't acknowledge that the device exists). Please help.

Compatible charging cables for phillips go gear hdd1630/17


If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

My Transcend 500GB is not working on my Dell Inspiron 1464 Windows 7 Home Basic But other USB devices like pendrive etc works fine. Also My Transcend 500 GB works fine on other machine has Windows 7...


The chances are that the portable drive is drawing more current fom the USB port then the port can supply. The current limitations on the USB ports are controlled electronically and if anything is connectedthat attempts to draw more power then the port can safely supply, the port is shut down.
You may have to use a USB power injector which you plug into the laptop and then plug the drive into that.

Computer not recognizing hard drive. Seems to be a problem with usb connection. Can I put the drive into another enclosure?


Definitely you can try with different enclosure, and it will work in any enclosure... But before buying a new enclosure it would be better if you try to connect the hard drive in a different computer to isolate where the issue is...

My laptop XP is not detecting Transcend StoreJet 25 External HD 500GB, but in desktop XP it is very well detecting and working. Pls let me know the solution for my laptop


USB devices draw electrical power through the USB cable.

Sometimes, the power-output from a USB port on a laptop is _less_ than that of a USB port on a desktop computer.

Hence, there are "Y" cables -- connect to two USB ports on your computer, and to the USB device at the other end, to draw more current.

Which manufacturer of laptop?
Which model-number?
Which Operating System?
Do other USB devices work when connected to the laptop's USB ports?

USB Problem


USB devices are allowed to pull up to 400mA for each port. Unfortunately if you have a keyboard with the handy USB ports on it and you plug in your memory stick, you still are left with 400mA for your keyboard AND USB stick COMBINED. The keyboard will draw it's power from the USB port on the computer, so unless you have a device that has it's own power source, each port on your computer can draw no more than 400mA.

My averatec series 3200 notebook cant detect my usb device


The flash disk could be faulty, especially when it draws too much power, and this will cause the USB ports to shut down and the other USB devices won't work until the faulty device is removed.

Western Digital Passport 160 GB external HD won't load.


WinXP SP2 blocks the use of the drive because it thinks it draws too much power. But there is a simple procedure to override this (from WD site):

"Problem:
Under Windows XP, an error message of "Power Surge on Hub Port" or "USB device has exceeded the power limits of it's hub port" is displayed when connecting a USB device to a USB port on a computer or Hub.

Cause:
Under some computers, USB devices are only allowed to draw a maximum of 500 milliamps (mA) per connection from the USB port on the computer system or from a USB hub. Under the Windows XP Operating System, with the release of Service Pack 2, if a device attempts to draw more than this (500 milliamps), a USB port balloon message is displayed to indicate this over current condition. When connecting a USB device that draws power from the USB bus, a very brief over current condition is sometimes detected by the OS, and the warning message is displayed.

Resolution:
This message has no affect on the functionality of the USB port. The USB hard drive should still function correctly on the USB port regardless of the error message. To prevent the USB Power Surge Alert message from displaying, please complete the following steps:
Click on Start.

Click on Control Panel.

Double-click on the System Icon.

Click on the Hardware Tab.

Click on the Device Manager button.

Click on the + next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand the selection.

Right-click and select Properties on any listing that displays USB UNIVERSAL HOST CONTROLLER.

Click on the Advanced Tab.

Check the box that says: Don't tell me about USB errors."

This works fine, and the drive works fine afterwards. I suspect it actually draws less power than they say. Maybe it has a brief power draw spike on startup, but it's running power seems less. In any case, it works fine without the Y cable. I do think it is tacky that WD doesn't give the cable for free, since my $7 Sabrent 2.5" Hard drive enclosure came with a y cable.

But most likely the drive will work fine for you. It is a lovely quiet drive, and takes up no space at all.

Use the USB ports that are on the back f the PC, not the front ones or the one on the keyboard, these are low power USB ports. You can also purchase a powered hub that supplies its own power. The maximum draw on 1 USB port is 500ma, shared across all devicesattached to that port including non powered hubs. My USB PC-cam took 450 all by itself!
