Depends which operating system you have,

here are a couple of things you can do if you on windows, does the light on the USB drive come up? Try another USB port, you may be able to need to format.. if thats the case let me know and i will help you through it.

u may want to try the pen drive on another computer to see if it works.

Hope it helps

    Hey mate, like the guy said before u may need drivers for it to work.

    On the other hand i pretty sure one of the computers you have tried must be windows XP, so it may be a problem with the memory stick itself.

    please can u confirm which operating systems you have tried.

How do I connect the Irulu keyboard to my tablet, besides by plugging the mini usb into the port on the side? Because my tablet doesn't recognize, that it is even plugged in.

first of all, make sure that your tablet has an On the go USB port or data port if not, it can only be used to charge. If you connect our tablet to a computer usb port, and your computer recognises it, then you have a data port.

If you plug in a usb memory stick, and your computer can not read it, it does not have a USB to go port.
Also, some Cable adapters are On the Go wired, and may not work properly.
It may also be that the USB port is not providing enough power from the tablet to the keyboard. In that case, buy a split power usb cable, and plug the red (power only) into a usb charger or powered usb hub.

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??

1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

Sony memory stick pro 128mb has docs on it I need. when i plug it in to laptop, it either doesn't register or says USB device not recognised. help!!!

I'm assuming the docs are important. What I would try to do is buy an external reader which cnnects via USB and hope that it is the port on the computer that is not working.
Sony MRW62E/S1/181: an external memory card reader/writer that can address 17 different memory card formats. It sports a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface and draws its power directly from the USB connection. The MRW62E/S1/181 can be connected to both Macintosh and Windows computers. Cost is around $30.

Need pictures off memory card

More than likely this is not a memory stick problem, but a computer problem. Have you used this port before for other uses? sometime a port will get sloppy( for lack of a better word) and you may have to tilt or hold the card with your hand, so that the computer will pick it up. Try that.
Hooe it helps.

Problem with USB Flash

It is possible the memory stick is faulty. Are you using xp or vista? If so it should be recognised instantly. I bought one the same a couple of weeks ago, and it recognised it instantly, and I'm using xp.

Try it on another computer if possible, even where you purchased it. Just tell them you think it's faulty. If it works on that computer then you have a problem with either your usb ports or you have a virus.

* Make sure you have inserted a memory stick, and enable the usb connection via settings=>usb connection

* Check the usb cable, or simply find another one to try if it works.

* If there is a memory stick inside the psp and the psp can recognize it, then you most probably have a problem with your cable or usb port.

* if there is a memory stick inside the psp and the psp cannot recognize it, as well as the computer, then you are most likely to have a failure with your memory card.

There are too many possibilities, maybe you can give me details straightaway, so more people can help you.
