Yes you can unless you have a conflict with another USB device. Simply try another usb port. If that does not work try a usb hub.. also remember most computers have usb port on the front of the computer as well as the back of the computer.

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in


Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

Computer is saying it has malfunctioned.


Well, it probably does have a problem if it worked on this same computer before without a problem. You could try the memory stick in the following to isolate the source:

1) try in a different USB port (to see if it is USB port related - only this port has failed - others ports will work).
2) try in a port on a different USB controller (to see if it is USB controller related - all ports on this controller will fail. Other ports on other controllers will work).
3) try in a different computer (to see if it is related to the USB stick itself ).
4) repeat the process with known good USB device such as a mouse or other storage device (this will confirm or cast doubt on the results found above).

That's about all you can do. Retire or replace the source of the problem. I hope thgis helps - good luck!

Tried different ports, different usb cables. No luck. It shows in the devices but will not print


Check for the printer requirement for operating system and maybe it is not compatible.

Correct Printer icon name. Correct usb port driver needed. Check your device manager for usb port driver if properly installed. otherwise use LPT port if there is install driver for your computer.

Doesn't work.....no laser light appears on the bottom of the mouse. Nothing happens when I hit the "connect" button.


It sounds like these is either a problem with the USB port on the motherboard or with the mouse itself.

Assuming that if a wireless mouse: the batteries are new, the device is actually turned on and the transmitter has been removed from the mouse and plugged into the the USB port and it still does not work, it should be tried on all the other USB ports of the computer. If none work, try on another computer.

This will help determine if the mouse or the computer is the problem. If the mouse does not work on other ports or on the other computer, a defective mouse is likely. If it does work in a different USB port of the original computer, the first USB port is suspect.

If it only works on a different computer, the problem my lie in the setup or BIOS page of the computer. Look for a setting for USB ports. Enable the ports if disabled, and try again. If still no luck, there is some other issue at the motherboard level. Unless fairly new and under warranty, it will probably not be worth trying to fix the problem, when a $20 USB expansion card could be purchased and installed to provide USB connectivity needed.

You could also try connecting a different USB device (if available) to test the USB port. A USB webcam, hard drive, mechanical mouse, etc. are all good choices to test the port. You should indicate or cover any ports that are found to be defective.

I hope this helped and good luck!

Computer isn't noticing USB is there. USB is not lighting up orange.


Try another USB port, to see if you have a "dead" USB port.

Try the flash-drive in a different computer, to see if the flash-drive is "dead".

Try a different USB device in the USB port on your computer, to see if _any_ device in that port can be detected.

The flip mino hd usb won't plug into most of my usb ports (And yes, I know the difference between a firewire and usb). I have tried it on four different computers with a total of 10 usb ports. it worked...


My flip mino hd USB also will not plug into my MacBook Pro.  I've tried it on 3 different machines and it will only fit into one port, and not at all easy into that port.  When I look at the USB connector on the device, there appears to be slight raised plastic ridged on the outside ends of the connector.

Music software of Samsung YH-925 20 GB MP3 can't regcognized the device


You may get the error that you're getting if there's a problem with the USB port of the computer, with the USB cable, or with the USB port of the device itself.

Try connecting the Samsung mp3 device to a different USB port of your computer. Usually, it's best to connect the device on the USB port at the back of the computer. Make sure that the USB cable is properly inserted on the USB port of the device and on the computer.

You may also try connecting the Samsung mp3 device to a different computer to isolate the problem.

Another isolation is to try connecting a different USB device on the computer, just to check if the USB ports of the computer is working properly.

Try using a different USB cable also, if you have any.

Chances are you reconnected the printer to a different USB port and your default is still set up for the other port...

Look at your printer settings and chances are it set up the printer again for the new port.

Either change your default printer or move the cable back to the original port.
