Most Compaqs (in general all brands) have USB ports on both the front and rear of the case. The rear connectors are found where all the other I/O connections are located. They are flat rectangular sockets. When you want to plug in a USB device, you can plug into any open USB port. The plug will also only fit one way, so if it will not go into the connector just flip it over.

Front panel USB connectors are often hidden behind a door. Look for a swing-open or slide-down panel. On some cases the connectors may be on the top or sides.

When connecting devices such as a printer or external hard drive, you should use the rear-panel USB ports. These go directly into the system board and have the best performance. Front-panel USB connectors plug into the main board with cables. For most devices (including your SanDisk) it doesn't matter which you use, but the rear-panel ones are best for high-speed devices or moving lots of data.

You can usually find the user's guide online at the computer manufacturer's website, and that will show you where all the connector are on your system.

If this solution has been what you need, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

UPDATE VIA USB DRIVE Note The USB flash drive must use the FAT32 file system.
  1. Plug your USB flash drive into a USB port on your computer.
  2. Download the update file.
  3. Click Save to save the console update .zip file on your computer.
  4. Unzip the file. If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click the .zip file to unzip it.
  5. Copy the contents of the .zip file to the root directory of your flash drive.
  6. Unplug the USB flash drive from your computer.
  7. Plug the flash drive into a USB port on your Xbox 360 console.
  8. Restart the console.
  9. When the console restarts, the installation program starts automatically. Select Yes when you are prompted to update the new console software.

I would try this if it is having a issue connecting to the update.

If you are using a usb hub it could be the problem; try disconnecting the hub. Try to plug the pen drive into a usb port on the pc not on a hub. If the usb hub has a separate power supply make sure it is working. Hope I was of some help, Thanks for using FixYa

Code popped up 3151-0000-3080-0506-8007-2EE2 what does this mean...trying to down load game


This is a rare X-Box related error that pops up when there was a system issue with an update. The easiest way to resolve this matter is with a flash USB drive; I'm hoping you have one.

Note The USB flash drive must use the FAT32 file system.
  1. Plug your USB flash drive into a USB port on your computer.
  2. Download the update file from http://www.xbox.com/system-update-cd
  3. Click Save to save the console update .zip file on your computer.
  4. Unzip the file. If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click the .zip file to unzip it.
  5. Copy the contents of the .zip file to the root directory of your flash drive.
  6. Unplug the USB flash drive from your computer.
  7. Plug the flash drive into a USB port on your Xbox 360 console.
  8. Restart the console.
  9. When the console restarts, the installation program starts automatically. Select Yes when you are prompted to update the new console software.
Best of luck...

Sir/ma'am i have got a new laptop , but i don't have many drives....i mean i have only C- drive and i have to save everything in my desktop..... hope you solve my problem....... ty poojitha


getting a memory stick you plug into one of the USB ports might be an option--Make sure you buy one that is compatable with your filesystem/operating system.
There are two main commercial types of Usb port 1.1 and 2.0
most memory sticks these days cover both types
your pc'should recognise the Usb stick as a different drive E or F for example from there save and wait for save process to stick

I have plugged in my Crusr SabDisk 4 GB to my usb,


Check the drive by plugging it in to another computer (with known working ports) or another port that you have tested with another device. Some machines have USB ports disabled for power-savings and security so you can check that in the device manager. Ports can also fail with time.

If the drive doesn't work in another computer or a known good USB port, it's probably failed. Check your warranty and you might get a new flash drive. However, you won't be able to get the data off of it without spending money for data recovery.

I hope this helps.
