Some external storage devices work poorly or not at all when connected to a hub; try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer. Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management". Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System. Check the Drive's status in Device manager. This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation. Check Partition and Format. Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges Insert your removable disk into the USB port. Click Start, right click on computer and select manage. Now, click Disk Management. Check whether drive letter for the device is present. Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc). If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter. If it is, change it to unused drive letter. Hope this helps.

Connecting an Eclipse MP3 Player to a Computer


Many people have found that their computers do not recognize the Eclipse mp3 Player, even after connecting with a USB cable. I had the same problem but discovered that the problem lies with the cables themselves. I have several USB 2.0 5-position cables that fit the Eclipse USB port perfectly, but only ONE of them actually works - the cable that came with the player itself. If you've lost this cable, you may be in trouble.

Attached is a screen-grab of the type of USB plug and port involved. You don't see them around very much anymore, and I have no further advice if your player doesn't have a USB port of this shape.

Computer will not recognize mp3 player, device doesn't light up


The two most likely causes for this is either your USB port or the USB cable itself. Try plugging the device into different ports and if that doesn't work, get yourself a different USB cable. If neither of those works then your device is faulty and the only fix for that is to get it serviced by the manufacturer.

My computer does not recognize my printer


Hi,

Your problem is very common and don't worry for this. First check the USB cable or try to connect with a new cable. If it doesn't help you then check settings printer and faxes in control panel. Make the printer online from settings. You can reload the driver.

Hello,
it is a known issue that these particular drives sometimes don't get recognized by the Operating System, after coming out of Sleep, Stand By, or Hibernation.
Simply try to disconnect and reconnect the drive again in the USB port, if this doesn't work then, Disconnect it from the USB and connect it to the Firewire. if this doesn't work then, Restart the computer.
It should solve the problem.

I can't get my new MacBook to recognize and import photos.


Mac's don't need a driver to recognize the camera however they usually need a specific program for different brands of photos. You can also try opening up iPhoto as that will usually recognize the camera. If iPhoto doesn't work and you don't want to install a new program you can also get a card reader that'll connect via USB and will avoid needing any program to transfer photos.
