    thank you, thank you, thank you! it's a Sony DSC-S750 if that helps at all.

    Depending on your camera, you may need a disc to run the drives. Did your camera come with any paperwork, or discs?

Okay, put your disc in, and when the little box comes up saying that it recognizes new hardware, try to click on that and go from there. If that does not work, let me know and I will find another solution for you.

    Alright, I'm going to go on a hunt now and try and figure this out for you.

  • Mandee Jan 11, 2009

    Alright, let's see. If you're trying to upload pictures from your camera. There are a few options.

    As far as dowloading the pictures to your PC:
    1. Get a card
    reader - from eBay: they are ridiculously inexpensive. Just check which
    card your camera uses and ensure the reader you buy covers this one or
    get a multi-reader. This way you never need to connect your camera to
    the PC - simply put the card into the reader!
    2. Download "Picasa" from Google at
    you put the card into the reader inform Picasa and it will place all
    that is on the card to your hard drive in "My Pictures". Done!
    Picasa also offers within the program simple editing and printing options.
    It will also burn slide shows for you.

    If your USB is working with other peripherals, there's nothing wrong with your comp, return to where you bought the camera, tell them the problem and they will have to fix it.

    I also found another explanation, which better suits, I believe.

    So how did I finally fix the problem? Well, apparently
    it’s a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall
    drivers, or anything of that sort.
    Yes that’s it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your
    computer because modern computers don’t really turn off when you press
    the power button as the motherboard still gets power.

    First to explain, the motherboard is where all of
    hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports.
    Sometimes the motherboard needs to be “rebooted” also because something
    can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small
    microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB
    ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

    So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or
    pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let
    it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.

    Hope this helps someone fix that pesky “USB device not recognized” Windows error!

    So try unplugging your computer completely and waiting 30 seconds, plug it back in and start it up - try installing once again!!

I can no longer HotSynch. The computer screen message says "UBS Device not recognized. One of the UZBS devices connected to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance...

The first thing to try is to reinstall the Palm desktop. After you have it reinstalled then try to resync it. I had the same thing happen to me. This is what I did and it worked fine after that. Palm no longer offers service for your model. You would have to find service from a 3rd party vendor if you choose to take it a step further. If you are considering getting a new one take a look at the palm TX. It is fantastic. Can get on the web from it too. Best wishes.....I wish I could be more help.

Pc doesnt see ipaq h6315

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

USB device not recognized or has malfunctioned on hotsync

Last week, windoze started barking the same complaint at me. A hard reset (of my Tungsten E) solved the problem. Caution: A hard reset (keep the power button pressed while performing a normal reset. Only release power button, when Palm logo screen appears. The press up-key) delete ALL data (even the identity, i.e. hotsync ID) from your palm - so be sure to have a recent backup!
