    Earlier today I inserted my flash drive into a computer at school. Nothing happened. I tried it in other computers, including my home computer (worked last night), to no avail. Possibility a wiring mistake inside the computer. If the cables connecting the front USB ports were switched it's toast.

    I have the same problem with a this device. I have Windows XP Home Edition with everything necessary to allow something like this pathetic, small piece of equipment we call a Lexar 2GB JumpDrive FireFly.

    I guess I should have thought about buying it from a different retailer than Wal-Mart. Other than that all it gives me is this stupid "can not recognize" or "usb devices attached have malfunctioned".

    What in the hell? If anyone can help, please help me. I have tons of work on this little piece of **** and I need to have a miracle happen.

This may be due to several reasons, some solutions are:
1.Changing the drive letter of the USB drive in Disk Manager

Check system manufacturer = motherboard manufaturer and system model is the model of your motherboard. If not correct
go to the manufaturers website to look for a bios update.

3.Clean the jumper of the USB power in the motherboard. Release it and reconnect it.

Try with these solutions, i am not sure the result of these solutions.

SOURCE: my laptop does not recognize usb flash drives

Some USB flash disks need to draw too much power for use on particular laptops,  as Laptops tend to have USB ports which only have a low current draw,

the only way around this is to buy a "Powered" USB Hub (IE a USB hub with it's own plugtop power supply).

My Portable HDD is exactly the same way, and doesn't work on some laptops for this very reason.

How do I setup my wireless mouse and keyboard

Need more information but normally you would hook up the infrared device or usb device to the laptop. Then you would make sure that the keyboard and mouse has new batteries in it. At that point windows should recognize the mouse and keyboard. You may have to push on the connect buttons on the keyboad or mouse to get the laptop to recognize them.
Other then that its not really hard. Just time consuming if it doesn't take right away. Most of the time you don't need software installed unless the manual tells you to install them because windows will recognize them.

Not recognized by my laptop

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you. Your computer is not recognizing your Archos Vision A14VG Digital Media Player? The computer should be able to recognize it because your digital media player is compatible with the three major operating systems: Windows, Mac and Linux. Maybe a Firmware or driver update will help.
  1. First, make sure your laptop has USB 2.0 hi-speed ports installed on it (If you are not sure if these are installed on your laptop, check your laptop's user manual).
  2. Connect your Archos to your laptop.
  3. On your laptop, go into Device Manager and expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers group. Double click each device in that group until you find your digital media player.
  4. Update the driver.
  5. If it doesn't need an update, click try uninstalling the driver then reinstall it again.
If the computer still doesn't recognize your device, Try these websites to see if the device may need a firmware or driver update from there. but with with with oduyB-Sw

If your computer is still not recognizing it, try connecting your device to a desktop PC. If the desktop PC recognizes your device, then the problem is coming from the USB ports on your laptop. They may not have the amount of power needed for the device to connect to your laptop. If the PC desktop doesn't recognize the device, then the problem is that one of the drivers in the Archos is defective (not working anymore). Once that happens, the only way the device can work again is if the defective driver gets replaced. If your warranty for the product is still in effect, send the product back to its manufactuer and have them look at it. I hope this is just a driver updating issue. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Have a good day evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this.

Booted up my computer this am and the red light remains on and it does not appear that the system recognizes the external drive. The red light remains steady...I don't thhink the drive is running. How...

it is a known issue that these particular drives sometimes don't get recognized by the Operating System, after coming out of Sleep, Stand By, or Hibernation.
Simply try to disconnect and reconnect the drive again in the USB port, if this doesn't work then, Disconnect it from the USB and connect it to the Firewire. if this doesn't work then, Restart the computer.
It should solve the problem.

I can't get my new MacBook to recognize and import photos.

Mac's don't need a driver to recognize the camera however they usually need a specific program for different brands of photos. You can also try opening up iPhoto as that will usually recognize the camera. If iPhoto doesn't work and you don't want to install a new program you can also get a card reader that'll connect via USB and will avoid needing any program to transfer photos.

VAIO desktop does not recognize Sandisk flash drive

Most probably you have a drive letter conflict? If so, right click "My computer" choose "Manage" and locate "Disk management" - here, in the middle lower panel, you should be able to find your usb-memory stick, right click it and assign it a drive letter that you're sure is not in use.

USB Memory Key not Recognized on Desktop running Windows Vista

check the formats of the keys. if they are NTFS they might not be recognized by earlier Windows versions. What version of windows does the laptop computer use? It may be as simple as using the correct formatting (FAT or FAT32) on the USB memory key.
