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.

Need a lot more information. I assume you're installing new hardware but need to know operating system, type of computer, and the steps you're taking. Installing most devices does not require searching for new hardware. When you shut the computer down, install the device and reboot, it should find the hardware as it enters into windows and prompt you for a driver. If it doesn't prompt you for a driver then the device is probably not working. Many of these USB devices can be ruined if you don't "Safely Remove Hardware" before unplugging them.

I can not get the invoca remote to sync to my tv


If you can't find the code for your particular model, you can perform an auto search with your remote.

If you don't have the codes for an item you are trying to use your remote with, you can perform an auto search.



Manually Turn on the device you wish to program.

On the remote, press the device key for which you are searching.

Press "Prog" button once. (two flashes)

Make sure the remote is aimed directly at the device you want to control.

Press "Auto" button (one flash)

InVoca will now search through the library for the target device code in three second intervals. Every 3 seconds the remote will prompt you by flashing the light, and the remote will test the new code by attempting to turn the device power off.

The top line of the LCD display will show the device type and the second line will show the device code number as it searches.

When the targeted device turns off, immediately press "Prog" to save the device code in memory.

After you have pressed "Prog", check the other buttons, such as CH and VOL to be sure they work. If not, repeat the above steps. When the auto search is re-started, the search for the target device will begin where it stopped.

To stop the "Auto Search" press any key except "Auto"

Hope this works for you.

Hi all, My hard disk suddenly stop working, when


Try going to the control panel and then the install new hardware. When it asks for you to search for driver don't let the system look for a driver. Go to manual setup(or install from a list). If that doesn't work, then go to the seagate website to see if they have a driver for your version of windows. If seagate has the driver, then download it, go to install hardware, run the wizard, and when it asks for you to install from a disk that came with the device, click that option and the go to the directory where you downloaded the driver and load the driver.

Im having a problem when connecting my creative zen to my computer my computer will not read it


Hello,
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Solution:
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Once the device can be reached in MSC mode it should be ready to install new firmware on the player:
1. Backup data on the player to the computer when not on the PC already.
2. Reinstall / update firmware from computer to the player: after this the device will have all the maps for writing data and it can be approached in MTP mode again, using application software like Windows Media Player 11.

USB Dazzle DCV90 stopped working


WHEN YOU ADDED NEW SOFTWARE AND NEW ITEMS TO YOUR SYSTEM IT CHANGED THE SITTINGS IN THE REGISTERS, IF YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU STARTED THE PROBLEM THAN RESTORE THE DRIVE BACK TO THAT DATE.

DELETE OLD SOFTWARE, REMOVE EQUIPMENT AND RE INSTALL AFTER REBOOTING FIRST.

GO INTO CONTROL PANEL ADD NEW DEVICE OR NEW SOFTWARE.

most likely your plantronics bluetoothdevice needs to be resynchronized with the device you are trying to connect it to. resynchronization is as easy as placing the device in discoverable mode and searching for new bluetooth devices with the object it is gonna connect to.

SEARCHING FOR YOUR CODE
If your device does not respond to the remote control after trying all codes
listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for
your code.
NOTE: Before performing a code search for a DVD player or a VCR, turn on the device and
insert the required media.
For example, to search for a code for your TV:
1. On the remote control, press TV once.
2. Press and hold SET until the LED (red light) blinks twice,
then release SET.
3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1.The LED will blink twice.
4. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate
between pressing POWER and TV. Stop when the TV turns off
(after pressing POWER). If the device does not have a Power
key, you can substitute another function, such as digits 0 ~ 9 ,
CH, or PLAY).
NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from
its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code
first.
5. To lock in the code, press and release SET.The LED will
blink twice.
6. To search for the codes of your other devices, repeat steps
1 through 5, but substitute the appropriate device key for
the device you are searching for.
