This is strange as usualy these are quite reliable. It may have crashed.


If your computer is the problem then it will show in the below areas

If you are using Windows go to "control panel/ aministrative tasks/ computer management/ disc management. This will show if the disc is recognised on the system.

if not try :-

the same (control panel / administrative tasks/ computer management / device manager/ universal serial bus controller.

This will see if the card is working.

if not then the card may have been pulled out of your friends computer whilst still working. This may have caused a error on the card rendering in unusable.

Hopefuly your 4gb has not crashed.

Hope this helps

I just bought a new Gateway NV53 laptop but my P4350 Lexmark all in one printer does not recognize any of the USB ports.


Did you check whether the USB ports are recognizing other USB devices such as Microvault or Flash Drive? If all other USB devices are recognized except the Printer, then reinstall the USB Drivers. You can uninstall the USB drivers from the Device Manager and restart the Computer. The USB Devices are listed under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.

Usb ports not recognized


Did this suddenly start to occur? Were they working before? If so, it is very simple - shut down computer, remove the battery and unplug any power source, wait a couple of minutes and reassemble and power up. Wala! I read all kinds of complicated instructions, started with the simple, and problem solved.
