Photosmart 435 connection problems USB DEVICE

My camera searches for the computer connection, then an error message pops up and say usb device is not recognized. In the details it says that there are no drivers installed for this camera.

This is not true...drivers are installed and I haven't had any trouble with uploading pictures. I even reinstalled the software and drivers succesfully. The camera still is not connecting due to this error message.

Device not ready

CNET's review states that this camera connects to USB, but no mention is made of it being compatible with USB2. Theoretically it should be compatible since USB2 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible with USB 1.1. Yet I have other USB 1.1 devices which will cause "device not ready" error messages when I try to connect them to a USB2 port. Interestingly, the CNET article doesn't list Windows XP as a compatible OS. Another person posted that he received the same error message when trying to connect his camera to his 64-bit XP computer.

In any event, Largan's web site doesn't make any mention of them producing complete cameras -- only camera components. Perhaps their foray into the digital camera market was less than successful.

So, while this isn't truly a solution post, perhaps it may point you in the right direction as to possible causes of the device not ready error message.

Camera Connection

Two things:

1. The USB cable where it connects to the camera has to firmly in place otherwise it can disconnect from the computer even though it appears to be connected.

2. In the HP 635 'Set up' menu there is a section called USB configuration that has a 'computer' icon and either of these two options:
USB (Digital Camera)
USB (Disk Drive)
Set it to USB (Digital Camera). This tells your computer what sort of device is connect to it.

If you are connected correctly as above this is what happens:
1. Message: 'Establishing connection with computer'
2. Message: 'Connected to computer'.
3. images are copied to the computer.

I hope this helps.
