Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

USB plug in recognition

By B130 recognizes the 1GB Lexar flashdrive (love it), it recognizes my
Sony digital camera (love it), but I bought a Fuji S700 camera (love it) and
cannot download pictures to the B130. The CD software was installed, but
the computer will not recognize the USB. It works fine at my office. Thus, I
download the pictures at my office, place them on the Lexar and transfer them into my B130. I also purchased a SanDisk cruzer micro 1GB flashdrive which works great at the office, but isn't recognized by the B130.
I also purchased a USB bluetooth wireless device (looks like a flashdrive) so phone pictures can be transferred. Works fine at the office, not on the
B130. Help please, I'm sure there's an easy solution. I've tried down-
loading drivers, device manager items, to no avail. I'm spent. My B130
runs Windows XP with the Pentium M processor and 1GB RAM.

How do i upload from a fuji camera memory card

If your Fuji Camera uses an SD card then you can insert the SD card on the SD Card reader on the front left side of your laptop.

Otherwise, plug your camera to your PC with USB cable.

I assume your Fuji camera takes SD card and USB.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130. I bought a new hard drive and installed XP. Now my network adapter card is not recognized. I have the yellow question mark in my device manger. How can I reinstall the...

If it is the wifi card and not the ethernet you can plug in with a hard wire.
If not you are going to need to download them from a different pc, to a flash drive and install from there.
If you have a smartphone you can download it to the sd card on your droid or iphone, use the usb cable and install from there.

Memory modules must be the correct type and speed, and be within the specifications for the laptop. Just because it fits in the slot doesn't mean it will work.

The Dell inspiron B130 has 2 slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. if you tried to insert a 2GB module, it will not work.

If the module is within these parameters, remove and re-seat the memory, and try swapping the modules from one slot to the other. It may be a bad slot.

USB plug in recognition


To be honest, I am not sure if your post/query was intended for me. However, it shows up in my queue so i couldn't escape it. I will take a shot at the last part.

Sony DSC-W130 has 15MB Integrated Memory and support for Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo cards. Generally unless you install the software for the Cybershot DSC-W130, Windows XP/Vista will pick it up as a Mass Storage Device.

The Mass Storage Device emulation allows you access to pictures/video taken; copy, move, delete etc. If you can do these, then the DSC-W130 is working as designed.

However, if there pictures on the DSC-W130 but you are unable to access it, then that is a worry and a poblem. Note if you have a memory stick installed. The internal memory will be inaccessible. You will have to remove the memory stick before the internal memory initialises and is accessible

I am afraid I am not an expert on Sony DSC-W130. My response is best effort

USB ports don't recognize plug-ins

Latest BIOS and Chipset update would be very helpful to resolve the issue. Especially BIOS update contains very important fixes and enhanced functions. Latest release is 4/2/2007 dated. If yours older than this you can update. After BIOS update you can also update the chipset if issue persists. Here is the link for all drivers you need.

Good Luck
