See http://www.maxell.eu/FAQ2/FAQ.html

Venture USB contain two partitions - one named 'Public' and the other 'Secure'. Unfortunately we have noticed a compatibility problem between these drives and some computers running Windows Vista. In these cases only one drive is showing in 'My Computer' - usually the 'Secure' drive. As a result you are unable to access the user manuals and software which are in the 'Public' drive and cannot alter the partition sizes to allow access to the entire capacity.

Please follow the below instructions to resolve the problem:

1. Connect the USB to the computer
2. Please unzip and run the attached program
3. After completion please unplug the USB
4. Re-insert the USB to the USB port
5. You should now be able to access both drives.

Windows 7 Cannot find drivers for Maxell 4 GB USB 360


Good day

USB Flash drives use a standard windows driver. This means that the first thing to test is to see if any other USB drives works on your dell laptop. The second thing to test is to use a different USB port. This should eliminate hardware failure. I would recommend simply toing into device manager and look for the universal serial bus controllers. Listed will be all the USB drives. You can simply uninstall all the drives and restart the computer. This will force windows to reinstall the drivers.

I used this memory stick on my old PC at home and it was wrking okay. When i put it into the usb port it showed up ad removable E. Now I have upgraded my pc to a laptop it doesent recognise the stick....


I assume when you say "memory stick" that you mean a USB memory stick rather than a Sony memory stick.

You should try it in another USB port (if ther is one on your laptop). If that doesn't work, then try it in another PC - if it doesn't work in another PC either, then it is likely that the memory device is at fault, otherwise. If it works fine on another PC, then it is likely that it is the USB port on your new laptop that is at fault in some manner.

If you have another USB device you can use (anything will do - a mouse, webcam, etc), try it in the port you tried the memory stick in. If nothing happens, then in all likeleyhood, the USB port is at fault. If the other device works, then it is probably the USB memory device that is faulty.

If the device works in another PC, try reformatting it as FAT file system on that PC, and see if you can then see it in your new laptop.

Three things to try -

2 Switch the laptop off and remove the battery for 30 minutes, replace and try again.
3. Try a different memory stick

My computer cant recognize my sps


Before you plug it in,
Make sure the PSP is in USB connect mode.
Also make sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's not this is how you do it:
On the main menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Then select "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format Memory Stick" and press X.

Acer Aspire 3690-2970 Memory Upgrade


Your laptop may just not recognize and not even boot up if you exceed the memory limit. It will not harm the laptop if you give it a try with the 4gb. However, sometimes caution is a good thing. It all depends on what you are trying to do on your acer. If you haven't already, remove the old memory sticks and replace it with the 1 2gb memory stick. Work with it for a little while (this should not give you a problem). If you feel the laptop is still too slow....let me know...I will look up the compatibility with the memory and your laptop.
