I understand that you don't need to "activate" USB mouse. Turn off your computer., plug in a USB port and turn your computer on. I just don't know it it is compatible with USB3.0 Just some days ago I conected a Microsoft USB mouse to my USB 3.0 port and it didn't wor so reconnected it to USB2.0. Port USB3.0 is 100% ok!

I'm trying to sync an apple ipod shuffle 4th generation to my windows xp pc. The famous USB device not recognized thing pops up. What do i need to do so i can use and sync my ipod.


Shutdown Windows.
Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC power cord.
Reconnect the AC power cord.
Restart the PC.
This will eliminate many "intermittent" problems.

Now, connect some other USB device (mouse? keyboard? memory-stick?) into the USB port, to confirm that the USB port is working, at least for some USB device.

Now, connect the iPod to one of the USB ports.
If it is not recognized, connect the iPod to a different USB port.

This should work.

Hello, i currently use a IBM desktop with IBM keyboard and mouse but i just bought a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse which i just installed into my desktop using the installation CD. They are both...


Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

My ipod touch has a usb cord pointing to a itunes symbol what do i do


It is in "recovery" mode.
  • - unplug any other USB device that's attached other than keyboard and mouse
  • - turn off ipod and attach it to your system
  • - With IPT attached press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for at least 10secs until apple logo appears
  • - hopefully windows will recognize the IPT and you try and restore again.
OR

You can download a FREE program called IBRICKR from
http://www.soft82.com/get/download/windows/ibrickr/
which will reset your ipod touch in approximately 15 secs without any messing around with Itunes and all of that. I have used it a number of times. I hope this helps and good luck.

Usb Trouble


The USB ports all share a single power source. It may be that the Ipod being added overloads the connections.

You might want to consider purchasing a USB hub, but make sure you get one with a Power Adapter to boost the current to your devices.

My keyboard and mouse dont work, if I plug in usb mouse and keyboard dont work


Go into your Bios by hitting one of your f keys when your computer starts up. Look through it and let me know if you have all of the USB support turned on. After you check that we can trouble shoot further.


Am I reading this wrong?
Are you saying that your keyboard does not work but your mouse will? Or are you saying that neither will work on USB?

Check your BIOS either way and let me know.

Do not rate this until we are finished trouble shooting.

Apple macbook will not recognize GE wireless mouse


I've got one of those. We had problems with it chewing batteries up. You might try another mouse on that computer, and try that mouse on another computer.
