Since Phillips is not developing any patches for the Windows Vista problem...infact they are not even selling the stereo anymore at all. There is a work around which you can use. Purchase a cable which has a headphone jack on one side and the red/white audio connectors on the other. You plug the headphone jack into the headphone port on your laptop/PC and then plug the other side into the audio ports behind the stereo. There is no decrease in quality, it sounds awesome plus you do not need to deal with the stupid software which doesn't always work anyways. Good Luck!!!

Purchase an USB blue adapter from amazon or
Depending on the version of windows, you might not have to install anything when you plug it in. Vista and 7 shouldn't have any issues installing it. If windows xp or failure to load on vista/7 you'll need to load the drivers from the CD that comes with the USB device.

Hi, I can't get my scanner conected, it was conected, turned it off ,now can't get it to work. ion PIC2pc. Thanks Nan


Be certain that you followed the step-by-step instructions (From ION Support):

1. Turn on the computer.

2. Insert the installation CD into the CDROM

drive and the installation menu will appear. *

3. When you see the installation menu, click Install Driver.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

5. When the driver installation is complete, click BlazePhoto to install the software.

6. Follow the on-screen instructions.

7. If your computer does not have DirectX 9.0 or greater or Adobe Reader, click those items to install them. (If your

computer is using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, Windows Vista, or Windows XP Professional, this is not


8. Click Exit to close the window.

Note: The first time you connect PICS 2 PC to your computer, wait a few seconds until you see a dialog box

that says "Found New Hardware" (this means the computer recognizes the PICS 2 PC). After you see this,

PICS 2 PC is ready to use.

If you followed the above instruction and still have a problem, reinstall (first, Remove from Add/Remove Programs) the software and be certain that the USB cable is snug.

If your computer is not recognizing the ION PIC2, be certain that your computer has a USB 2.0 port. Check your Device Manager to verify what USB port.

If still a problem, what error message(s) are you getting ? What operating system software (Vista, Windows 7, etc.) ?

Hope this helps.

How to connect usb conection from my data one "UT-300R2U" modem to compaq laptop.we have usb cable and driver cd but drivers are not installed in my laptop.plz give me the complete solution for this...

If you are using Windows Xp, just connect the modem using USB/LAN it will be automatically detected & software for it will be installed. Then you can just set up a connection, put in your username & password, done.
If you are using Windows Vista / Windows 7, modem in LAN mode will be installed automatically like XP, but not in USB mode. Because there's no USB driver for UT300R2U (BSNL modem) in Vista. You need to find a ZTE Remote NDIS device driver, install it & then you can connect. Hope this will fix your problem.

I cant use my USB conector in PC

you just need to find a free driver to download for the computer to be able to read the device. After the driver is downloaded and installed, it should read automatically. At least that's how it works with windows vista. IF you have XP, you might need to run the wizard after the driver is installed

you should have a driver installed on your computer so that your device will recognize the device youve plug. if still not work then your usb driver must have a problem. try to plug any usb device to your computer aside from your camcorder then see if it works. if other device is working then your usb on your system is not the problem. youll need a driver for your camcorder. if other device wont work too then your usb nor the driver got a problem. be sure to install both this time. if you need a driver for you camcorder(if you dont have) ill find one. but almost all brand new camcorders camed with a driver and appication software. if you dont have a driver for the usb then ill find too. hope that helps!

Driver Issues on Windows Vista Basic

As an adhoc solution you may try to download drivers for XP SP2, tell the driver installation applet to search for drivers from the folder you downloaded them to when it tells you this driver was not made for Vista tell it to install them anyway. It may not work but as this manufacturer is no longer in the modem biz vista is not supported by them at this time.
