If you know how to use bios, have a look for a setting that enables usb this maybe unchecked, if this solution doesn't work try getting an internal usb card fitted as your onboard ones maybe damaged. Have you tried to installed the motherboard drivers for usb.

I get this error message when trying to update my daughters smart pen: 136 InitFunc_NFlashID_Error Format it,use our FAT

I was able to get one of these working that had a dead pen. I reset the pen (insert a pin in the side), and plugged it into a USB port on my computer. I then opened the smartglobe 3 software and it updated the pen. A couple times it failed to format the pen.

I had to switch the pen to another usb port and then it finally formatted and downloaded all of the info to it. It took a looooong time to update. Then it said it was updating the Clock. It then told me to disconnect the pen, but... I was wary of this because most usb devices require some kind of dismounting before you unplug something.

So instead of disconnecting the pen when it said to, I quit the smartglobe software and shut down the computer, without ever unplugging the pen. Once the computer was off I finally unplugged the pen from the usb cable. I turned off the pen and turned it back on. It then worked, (a guy came on and said something)! I think maybe there isn't a way to "eject" the pen properly, so shutting down might (big emphasis on might) allow the usb connection to disconnect successfully without corrupting the flash memory of the pen. Or I just got really lucky. Either way I'm happy! (And not about to update it again I might add).

Don't detect usb, malfunctioned, don't recognised

Did you reinstall from the Dell "System Restore" CDs that came with your computer, or from some "generic" XP CD-ROM?

Allow the web-page to "detect" your Dell "asset-key".
You'll be directed to a web-page containing downloadable "drivers" for your computer's USB-ports. Select, download, and Install those drivers.

Usb device not recognised


Is this the first time you connect your printer on that computer? This can be the USB port does not support a 2.0, or your data cable/printer cable is damage.

Hope this helps

Gateway Pen Drive .... not recognized on Windows XP

@Enquiry: It's a USB 2.0 pen drive, which might not backwards support USB 1.1 without drivers. Many computers have USB 1.1 out one end of the case (back) and USB 2.0 out another (front).

I want USB port Driver for detect

No mention of Brand of Pen Drive so I would start there first.


Also no mention of when the latest updates were done ,hmmm

Normally should auto recognise when plugged in

(should do anyway)

When you install usb drive,

and drive does not appear be present,


Assuming your using XP,

go to start

then my computer,

right click,manage,

disk management,

This will put you in the area where you can check the health and activitys of your hard drives,

If this drive was recognised in the port then it will be visable in this area,

here you can right click on the drive and update the individual drivers of each device that may have issues.

So go ahead right click and update the drivers,

click I have disk on the wizard prompt and let the wizard search for the correct drivers,

if it comes back saying please insert cd then let the wizard search the internet for the correct drivers.

If this does not fix the problem then a Factory Default Reinstall will fix this.

If the issue still remains after these steps its the motherboard replacement time.
