Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
When I connect the following devices to my computer, through any USB
port, they are not recognized as drives, and don't show up in Explorer.
- Digital Camera
However, the problem does not show up with the following devices - the are recognized as removable disk drives:
- External hard disk
- Oakley Sunglasses with built in flash drive and MP3 player
Neither show up as drives, but they show up in the Device Manager, under Portable Devices and both show the following message in its Properties:
"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"
With the iPhone, even though it does not show up as a drive, iTunes is able to recognize it and sync it. However, Vista Home Premium SP1's Explorer is unable to detect it.
I've reinstalled iTunes and installed and used TweakVI, but to no avail.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance
This is not unusual windows will only recognize the standard memory cards not any custom ones or inbuilt ones. For example if your device is using a SD memory stick it will show up in explorer however if you are using a device that has a copyright or custom it wont. I am surprised the digital camera is doing the same thing as thy use mmc cards which are standard and should show up.
With these devices when you connect it to a pc you would get an option on the lcd on the device that would need you to confirm connection. may be thats what you were looking for. If you have a memory card reader you can try using that as well.
Please rate if this fixed it or was helpful.
If i missed something let me know.
