    Did your Toshiba ever accept anything else other than USB drives (like mouse, etc) in the past? Let us know. :)

Toshiba touchpad doesnt respond after 2 minutes

This issue could be a few things. 1. Make sure your driver for the mouse and keyboard are updated. 2. The mouse pad may be going bad. 3. There may be an issue with the motherboard. I would recommend checking your driver first. Then replace the mouse pad. You can also pick up a wireless mouse and plug the usb that comes with it into a usb port if you are not comfortable tearing apart your laptop.

Have you tried to uninstall it from your device manager? When you do that, scan for hardware changes, it might pick it up. Also, try moving it to a different usb port after you uninstall from device manager.

Video playback for toshiba 52xv645u

You can get some external HD Players that have TV out, but quality is not good. Can't you use a laptop with a Video out, or a USB Video Out? Or some DVD players have a USB port, I picked one up the other day for NZ25.00, It plays ALL DVD's and has a USB, so I can play movies from there. Solution or what?

My laptop cannot pick up new usb flash drives but will pick up older ones

How old is your laptop? older laptop will only support USB 1.1 and newer USB devices also will only work with the newer USB 2.0 ports!
Most newer USB 2.0 memory sticks/flash drive are USB1.1 downwards compatibe.
Bottom line: check what USB version is supported by your Laptop and your plug-in device!
Also note that your Laptop BIOS should have LEGACY USB SUPPORT ENABLED and your device, especially if a Media Player, should have its operating MODE set to mimic a FLASH DRIVE (otherwise it will be an unknown device to 'my computer' drive list).

USB drives Not working

this problem seems mostly with the usb mouse, the best solution is to plug the flash drive in one port and usb in other and restart the computer generally this always works but if it wont work then the best thing is i also did that, buy a 4-port usb hub and connect it with laptop and connect your usb mouse with this port not directly to your laptop and when you like to use your flash drive plug it in the laptop.
this is working with be perfectly and i hope it will do the same at your side.
