As strange as it may seem, i have seen USB devices work one time and then be dead the next time you plug it in. I would try to connect it to another computer Or another USB plug on your current computer. If that doesn't work, You might try removing the driver for this device (if it has a driver for your MP3 player) and reinstall it. If when you connected it the first time the computer did not ask you to install a driver then the operating system already has the driver installed for your device.

Good Luck!

Hi. Sorry to hear about that but software restore will not work since the phone can no longer communicate with your computer. You need to flash your unit using special tools and cable that costs a lot if you want to do it yourself. Most service center can flash a dead phone and it is advisable that you bring your cellphone to a service center.

Synchronization


Ensure that when you reinstall the drivers you start reinstalling with phone USB not connected to computer. That is a cause for error 1316.

Try also a replacement usb cable if you have on sometimes a bad cable can give you the error.

Handspring Visor Username Deleted; How to Add on Device


To recreate your problem, I have setup the my Visor with no username, placed it in the cradle, and connected the cradle via USB port.

In this configuration, I do receive the same error message that you reported. Multiple issues can cause this error to be generated.

1. Place your Prism in the blue charging cradle. Confirm that the green charging LED is flashing or illuminated (below the power button on the Prism). If the green LED is not lit, then reposition the Prism until it is. If the green LED still doesn't illuminate then check the cradle and it's connectors for dirt and debris. Also check the copper connectors on the Prism for dirt and debris.

2. Depress the grey HotSync button on the charging cradle. The error message will appear. Press OK to clear the error display. If nothing happens when you press the grey button you need to check the copper connectors in the blue cradle and the bottom edge of the Prism for dirt and debris.

3. Check the upper right hand corner of the Prism display for the HotSync application. If any characters appear on the top line, opposite the HotSync header, then that is your username. If no characters are present, then there is no username in the PDA.

Regardless of whether there is a username in the Prism, the HotSync should still be possible. Once you successfully connect the cradle to the USB port and successfully connect to the desktop computer, a popup window will ask you to Create or Select the HotSync User.

Do you receive this popup window on the PC?

If not, your setup or connection probably has an issue.

4. Look at the Prism HotSync screen. Underneath the HotSync icon in the center of the display is a Drop Down selection. The options are
a. Direct USB/Serial
b. IR to a PC/Handheld

Since you are using the cradle, you should select option a.

Once you have confirmed this setup, you need to confirm the desktop computer setup.

5. Be sure to start the HotSync Manager Application on the desktop computer.

6. Left Click on the desktop computer HotSync Icon in the system tray, and confirm that Local USB has a checkmark beside it.

7. Depress the grey HotSync button on the charging cradle again. If the HotSync popup still does not appear on the desktop computer, left click on the HotSync icon and uncheck Local, Modem Network and Infrared and then depress the HotSync Button again.


There is a hidden method in the Prism for deleting the user name.
  • Open the Memo application on your Prism.
  • Tap New.
  • Enter the ShortCut character.
  • Enter a period '.'
  • Enter the number 5.
Whether you entered the shortcut character, period and 5 correctly or not, the characters you've entered will disappear and the memo pad will remain blank. To see if you succeeded:
  1. Depress the Grey HotSync button on the cradle
  2. Your user name appears in the upper right corner of the screen: if it's blank, then your user name has been deleted. The next time you HotSync with this device, you will be asked to create a new user name.
Note: Creating a new User name, will not affect the data stored in the Prism, other than initializing the user name.

There is a freeware application to Change the user name on the Prism, but you would need to HotSync to the desktop or beam the application from another Palm PDA to install it.

When you connect the DELL to the computer, is the USB detected? If so, open Microsoft Activesync and verify Allow USB Connections is checked.

Ku990 mobile to pc connection fail.


Yes janne_y_ang, I would have to tell you that from my own personal exprerience from using this phone has lead me to the conclusion that using BLUETHOOTH or the SOFTWARE CD are not the best or fastest ways to sync or transfer files from your computer to your phone or vise versa, so Im going to tell you the safest, fastest, and Easiest way to do it, using your USB ,but it may require you to change settings manually on your device first. Make sure you have a Memory card,
Choose settings for USB connections
1.Find "USB connection mo..."
  • Press the menu icon.
  • Press the fourth tab.
  • Press Phone settings.
  • Press Connectivity.
  • Press USB connection mo....
  • 2.Select setting
  • Press Mass storage
  • Press OK.
  • 3.Exit

    Once you've done this and have your memory in your device, Open the MY COMPUTER folder in your computer and connect your device to your computer using the USB cord, a new Icon will appear containing the folders from your device's memory card, that way you will easily be able to transfer files back and forth without the NEED of any sofware Cd's or use slow Bluethoot.

    And Welcome to the Viewty Family! Enjoy...!

    Blackberry pearl wont go past the white screen with the hour glas


    the only thing that you can do with this issue is try wiping the software clean and reinstalling fresh software. You would need the blackberry desktop manager first installed on your home computer. If you dont have the cd the program is more then likely available on your mobile providers website. Once the program is downloaded and installed follow these directions

    To perform this procedure, follow the steps below:
    1. Remove the battery from the BlackBerry device.
    2. Double-click Application Loader in BlackBerry Desktop Manager while the BlackBerry device is not connected to the computer.
    3. Click Next on the Welcome to the Application Loader Wizard screen.
    4. When the Communication Port Selection screen appears, connect the BlackBerry device.
    5. When the USB-PIN option appears, click Next. The Device Application Selection screen should appear.
    6. Re-insert the battery and allow the process to complete.

    I had the same problem > HARD RESET worked. Press and hold the TALK and END buttons, and also press the RESET button [at the bottom of the phone], all of this in the same time.
    Then release the RESET button but continue to press the TALK and END buttons, and a message will appear asking you if you really want to reset everything.

    Windows XP, Palm m130, & Outlook 2003 - Sync problem


    It sounds like the computer is noticing the USB activity (from when you hit the HotSync button) but for some reason it can't find the correct information/driver. I'd first try a soft reset (stick a paper clip or the end of your stylus may screw off to reveal a pin, in the hole at the back of your palm) Don't worry, it won't delete your info UNLESS YOU HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON (SO DON'T). Once it's booted back up, try the hotsync again. If that doesn't work, you may need to find the usb driver for your palm and reinstall it. This could just be copying a file from disc, or reloading your Palm Software. Good luck
