One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port
6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

I have a 25M Storejet transcend hard disk 640GB. The transfer rate of the hard disk is very slow. Its about 700 KB/sec. What might be the problem?


The problem is that you have connected it to a "USB 1.1" port, which is much slower than connecting it to a "USB 2.0" port. If your desktop computer has a "USB 2.0" USB port, use it.
If not, buy an add-in PCI card to add "USB 2.0" ports to your computer.

I need audio drivers for compaq presario c700.


Compaq was bought out by HP who now provides support for them. You can go to www.hp.com and click on support then select notebooks, compaq presario and then your model. Or you can try one of the following links. The first one takes you to the list of 700 Presario models. The second should go to your 700C drivers and manuals page.
Download save to desktop and install, reboot and you should have sound. Good idea to bookmark the page if you need anything else.

Operating system not found


get a win 98 boot disk. get to the bios and enable floppy drive or usb floppy boot first. insert disk and turn on the computer you should get a menu screen select start with out cdrom support when you get a command prompt type FDISK MBR. this will repair your master boot record remove disk and reboot. or the hard drive is not plugged in or you may need to reinstall the OS again. if you reinstall the OS be sur to get the info off of your drive before you do it. it will erase existing info and make it really hard to recove that data.

Can I use the PDC 700 with Windows Me?


The PDC 700 camera TWAIN driver is not 100% compatible with Windows Me because it does not support USB downloads. No new driver software is available from Polaroid -- however, a compatible TWAIN driver is available from a third-party source. The Pretec DC-800 is the functional equivalent of Polaroid's PDC 700. Pretec's DC-800 Setup Disk for Windows 95/98/ME/2000 is available for download at its online Driver Download Center. Testing done by Polaroid has shown that this driver works with the PDC 700 using the listed operating systems, including Windows Me. When accessing the camera with image editing software compatible with the computer's operating system, the camera driver appears as Digital Camera 1024X768 Driver.
