Unable to access photos on computer using usb cable.I plug in usb,select computer the screen freezes with Access showing.Can you help?

You don't mention models or OSs details so I will have to be general. Some possibilities:
Firstly. Make sure that you wait a reasonable time after plugging the camera into USB, before you try and do anything on the computer. It could be that you are interrupting the connection procedures.
Secondly. Can you remove the memory card from the camera and put it into a card reader connected to the computer. This is normally the simplest and quickest method.
Thirdly. Is all the software that came with the camera still installed properly ? Re-installing this software may solve your problem.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Usb not working with data card

A common problem is forgetting to reset the USB ports after removing a device previously. Rt Click on the white tick icon (bottom right) and check all relevant USB ports have been cleared. I personally have had big problems with cheap SD cards due to bad contacts, which can be toothbrushed with Isopropyl Alcohol or similar. Another problem is that SOME older laptops/usb SD adapters have limits on the size of data cards you can use. Check manuals &/or try using a small capacity card to check.

My external hard drive is not responding its making some type of sound I wouldn't call it a click more like a hump nosie, and it wont register on my computer, the light comes on but nothing is...

This few things can be the cause

  1. the usb port that the external is connect to is not 2.0
  2. the pc port is not supplying the required amount of power to the usb external
  3. you may be using a usb extension cord instead of connecting directly to the port

  1. Make sure that you are using the supplied usb cord or a very similar one
  2. change the usb port that the external is connected to (it could be a faulty low powered usb port)
  3. remove any usb extention card that is attached (leave on the supplied one)
  4. try connecting to a friends pc and see what happens
  5. during connection to the pc make sure no other usb device is connected
  6. maybe it is time to get a new external case. should not coat more that $15.
good luck

Where do i insert memory card in my laptop

If your laptop is equipped with memory card slots, you will usually see them on the edges of the left, right or front sides of the computer.

If you have no memory card slots, buy a memory card reader similar to this one and attach it using a USB port.

Hf20 - best method for downloads of HD media,, Usb from the device is just so slow

Your device already has an USB 2.0 Hi-Speed
interface which is the fastest pc offers right now. You must make sure that your computers usb port is also a usb 2.0 some computers do mix them on one machine . The other problem is that the read speed of the internal memory of your recorder is slow. The average is about 4 megs/sec so if you do the math for a 1 gig movie you have a long wait . Your usb port can transfer 400megs/sec . So what you can try is they now make very fast SDHC cards that can transfer 30meg/sec. Your recorded does take an optional card. Try recording your movie to the new card and and then insert the card into a card readed (USB 2.0) in see if that helps. It may even work if you keep it in the video recorder and use its usb port. Hope this helps

Where can i download usb drivers for my ibm thinkcenter.

What version of Windows are you using? What happens when you plug in a USB device? Any error messages? Check your BIOS and see if the ports are enabled. If theyre not, then enable them. If youre running Windows 98 Second Edition or newer, the USB port drivers are typically built in. If all else fails, you can purchase and install a USB card. If its an older machine, get the 2 port card, otherwise, the 4 or more port card will suffice. (Some 4 or more port cards dont play nice in older machines.)

Computer doesnt register device as being plugged-in

This can be a problem with your USB capabilities in your computer.

If you are using your front USB ports, it is possible they are underpowered. Try switching to the rear USB ports.

You can also try a self-powered USB Hub to improve performance or purchase a USB 2.0 card for your system.

It could be something as simple as a bad USB cable. That would be the cheapest place to to trying the rear USB ports.
