It looks like your NetGear WNA3100 is dead out of the box. The software looks like it operating correctly (runs the installed diag, tries to detect, etc.), but the software isn't having any luck finding the hardware. The reason that the adapter is disabled in Device Management, is that the software seems to have correctly installed the driver, but Windows couldn't detect (plug & play) the device, so Windows didn't enable the device driver - Windows won't load a driver for a non-existent device. Other (remote) possibilities: (a) Wi-Fi adapter plugged into a bad USB port. - try another port. (b) there's a little corrosion on USB contacts of USB port or WNA3100. Try plugging adapter in and out of the port a few times (this shines up the contacts a bit). (c) there's a slight misalignment of contacts within the USB connector or either the laptop, or the WNA3100. Your fix may be returning the NetGear WNA3100 to the retailer for an exchange.
There are many problems that could be causing this, but this should do the trick:
1. Click the start button at the bottom left of your screen. Then, click "Control Panel".
2. In the Control Panel window that pops up, double click "Device Manager".
3. If your flash drive is not already plugged in, plug it in now.
4. There are many different things in Device Manager that you see. There should be one thing sticking out though with a Yellow Triangle, with a black Exclamation point inside it, and next to it should say Universal Serial Bus Adapter or something to that effect.
5. Right click on that, and click Uninstall. In the box that pops up, click Yes I want to uninstall.
6. Restart the computer.
7. Now plug in the USB drive, and give it a second.
8. After a minute, it should work.
Hope this helps.

There are different types of USB port. For instance my computer has two types. One with a blue connector and one with a black connector. It might be that your USB ports are not suitable for that device. You need to check the specifications of the USB ports on your computer and the specifications of the MP3 player. Continuing to use the device might cause damage to the computer.
I have the same issue. I have 4 Simpletech Signature 250GB drives. They all worked fine at first. After about six months two of them started connecting at USB 1 speeds. It occurs on 4 different computers!!! The post about it being the computer assumes is wrong. How can it work fine for six months and then suddenly change. Also it occurs on different computers. I have submitted a tech support request with simpletech and will post the results.
Hi yes the plug into the cradle if this is fine then the firmware could have become corrupt due to virus or some data getting change this can happen. The other thing you can try is remove all the software off the computer then plug the usb in and see if your computer tells you in a pop up box that new device has been found. If it says this then the chances are its software of firmware problem ok. If your computer dont give you pop up box telling you new device connected then the try another usb port to rule out the usb port being the problem or try a different device in the usb port to make sure its working fine. If your computer dont pick the palm up then the problem is more likely to be hardware related like port on palm damaged or even internal parts failing inside the palm. So just try plug it into usb port and see if your computer picks it up look under my computer and see if its listed their then let me know ok
Unplug the printer. After uninstalling the software make sure you delete the printer from Printers and Faxes!
Try plugging it up again(don't install back the software just as yet), the New device found pop up should come up! if it doesn't then it could be the USB cable / the USB ports on the PC or the USB interface on the card! If it does , put the cd in the drive and select Install Drivers automatically(if its pops up)
Also, Try using different USB ports if the new device pop up doesn't pop up!
Test the USB ports by using a regular USB device in the same port you are plugging the printer into!
A bad USB cable could be the issue but it can also be something else!
You'll need to verify that its the cable, what you can do is try it with a cable that you know is fully functional!
If you still don't get a response from the printer and everything else works(i.e. usb cable, usb ports) then it could be the USB interface on the printer! and you'll need to take it to a tech!
Hope this helps!!
