My USB 'Whatever' will not work


This not is not for USB flash drives, microphones, mice, anything that does NOT have an install disc at the time of purchase.

Most USB issues are caused by installing a USB device BEFORE you install the driver disk.
In all cases, if there is a driver disk, insert the disk first and wait for the install program to ask for the device. Then plug it in.

If you have done the faux pas above, all the installs in the world will not fix it. You MUST remove the USB driver. Use Device Manager. In XP, this is found by right clicking my computer and selecting properties. In properties select the hardware tab and choose 'Device Manager'.

Stop here. If you have no idea what I wrote, review 'Device Manager' on the Windows Website or ask a KNOWLEDGABLE friend for help. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123.

Now, select the USB device, while it is plugged in to the USB port, and right click. Select 'Uninstall'. Remove your USB device when device manager is done.

Close Device manager and all the other windows. Start your USB install from scratch, without the USB plugged in untill the install asks or completes.
I have ALWAYS had succesfull installs with this method.

I NEED A USB DRIVER


Hi,
USB drivers will be automatically installed by your operatinf system. The thing is you need to install the driver for any device which you are going to connect via USB.

For example, if you are going to connect your printer to USB port, then you have to install the driver for your printer only and not for the USB port.

I hope this is helpful for you to understand about your problem.
Thanks

How to install anything USB & "Device not recognised"


I see a lot of people are having problems with USB. USB is a wonderful standard. However it does have a habit of getting sorta tangled up, generally in the Windows hives/registry.
I am going to show you how to go about installing ANYTHING USB.
First: NEVER EVER, plug in ya USB device before ya install the Software and Drivers.
Second: After installing software & drivers etc. REBOOT.
Third: NOW, plug in your USB device, it should be detected and automatically install the drivers, OR it will ask where they are, navigate to where the files are kept, and they will install, after it has finished, REBOOT.
NOW you should be all good, and ready to use.
Now if you get at any time, "Device not recognised" first, try another USB port, if that doesn't work, & ya keep getting the message . One thing to try is to go to device manager and TOTALLY remove/uninstall & remove drivers, from ALL USB devices from device manager. then REBOOT.
When windows restarts it will re-install the USB "Layer" all again, all new. Now you can start all again as above.

Can I Install iP2600 using USB 1.1 conectivity?


What will happen is the printer will slow down to the speed of the 1.1 USB technology. Try running the setup and see what happens. I did this in the past and I believe I did get it to work.
