I have a sandisk card reader plugged into my usb port. When I insert a 1.0 card the light goes on ...on the Sandisk but nothing loads to the computer. Help.


Click on my computer. Locate the port your card is on. Double click the icon. The next window should be whats on the card. Double click the icon and it should show whats on the card. If it shows nothing, go back to my computer locate the port your card is in and left click. go to properties and it will show if there is any information on the card. Hope this helps.

I can't get my printer to work that's hooked up to my pc


Make sure that the printer icon is only one and there is no documents in queue if you double click on the icon. If there is no icon please unplug/re-plug the cable to the computer it will show an icon on your computer

Computer don't show icon for external hard drive when plugged in, but you can hear the computer reconize it when you plug it in.


right click on my computer desktop icon and select manage, you will be able to see the hard drive present in the listing and set it up, if not there is enough power to power it up but not enough to recognise the hardware, try a different usb port, it may be in a usb1.1 and it will need usb2.0 to work correctly

When we plug the camera into the macintosh it wont recognize the camera


Well after a bit of trial and error, I found a somewhat consistent solution.  Here are the steps:
1.  While the camera is off, plug the USB cable into the camera (Don't plug the other end of the USB cable into the computer yet)
2.  Turn the camera on and press the mode button
3.  Navigate to the Camera icon
4.  Plug the USB cable into the computer (the camera icon will change to the USB screen)
5.  You will notice nothing happens!
6.  Unplug the USB cable from the computer
7.  The camera screen switches back to the Camera icon
8.  Plug the USB cable back into the computer and a VTech 773 icon should show up on your desktop.
9.  When your finished copying pictures to your hard drive, drag the VTech 773 icon to the trash.
I don't know why it works but it worked 9 out of 10 times for me.
Let me know if you find a simpler solution.

Green light is on mine, but USB port shows no device. When I plug it in, I get "found new device" message, but no icon on my desktop. None of my messengers recognize it either. It does show up in cameras and scanners though...I'm so confused.

Won't show up on my computer


When you open Windows Media Player, does it show an icon of your coby mp3 player? if so, just double-click the Coby icon, and bring up the song folders that way.

Ipod always on hold


My 2 GB nano shows the lock icon no matter how many times I toggle the hold switch on and off and press the Menu/Select buttons. I've recharged and restored it any number of times with no luck. Computer recognizes it when I plug it in but once I unplug it, none of the buttons work. When it's plugged in and fully updated, it shows the languages menu. I'll be eternally grateful to anyone who can offer any assistance!
