My Plantronics C420-M is not recognized

How To Fix Error Code 43 Windows has stopped this device because it has...

If Windows Device Manager is giving a code 43, this means the hardware is reporting something wrong when trying to connect. I'd do the following (and also check the attatched link for reference ;-) )

  • Unplugging the headset, restarting the computer, then plugging the headset back in.
  • Make sure the USB connector on your headset (and the USB port you're putting it in) is undamaged, and not dirty.
  • Try connecting the headset to another USB port, and another computer to see if you're able to reproduce the issue there (if not- it may just be the USB port(s) on your computer that you're plugging the headset into that's failing.
If all else fails, it may be time to purchase a new headset ;-)

My mac won't recognize my wd hd anymore

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

Zen V Plus not charging and not recognized by windows

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

USB ports don't recognize plug-ins

Latest BIOS and Chipset update would be very helpful to resolve the issue. Especially BIOS update contains very important fixes and enhanced functions. Latest release is 4/2/2007 dated. If yours older than this you can update. After BIOS update you can also update the chipset if issue persists. Here is the link for all drivers you need.

Good Luck

MyBook Fell Over, Now Not Showing As A Drive Letter

Well if your drive is 6 months old you might have a warranty of 1 year. You can make an online RMA request and tell them the drive doesn't work anymore. You don't have to say you dropped it. Just say it's heavily used and you can almost not live without.

But on the other hand if you tell the truth and want it fixed they can be reasonable and repair it for free. From my work and my private experience with WD they have good service. We sent alot of hdd's as RMA. For them is also good commercial if you tell other people about their service.

good luck. Just try to make a RMA. Nice drive by the way.
