I have a Kingston Data Traveler 8GB USB Flash Drive which I bought 4weeks ago. Whenever I plug it in one of my usb ports, i get a message which says "USB Device Not Recognized. One of the USB Devices...


The thumb drive might have some fault.
Plug it in other OS mainly windows XP and Linux.
If still same problem persists after tried in Linux, problem is with pen drive.
You can ask for a replacement from the dealer as it has guarantee for 5years.

My webcam is not recognized i need the driver for it


You can try using the Windows Vista drivers and see if they works. As Dell does not list your machine on it's Windows 7 compatibility list that will probably be the best to try the Vista drivers.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...


I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.
