Maxtor external drive is not recognised by my laptop.


Hi afjtranearth...

Go to Device Manager
To get to Device Manager you will:
Right click on My Computer>Properties>click the Hardware Tab>Device Manager.
After you are in Device Manager look for your MP3 player or hard drive unit.
Here you should see no "Yellow" exclamation points.
If you do they they are telling you that you have a device conflict.
If you currnetly have your unit plugged in, you may notice the "unknown device" which would be your Player or hard drive unit.
If you unit has an exclamation point by it, then you will need to click on it and delete it.
After you remove all devices with conflicts then click on refresh and search again for your MP3 player/ or hard drive unit.
The computer should install your hard drive device this time and solve your problem with connection of the MP3 player/Device.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

My dvd player used to work now it doesn't even show one is in the computer what doi Do?


Hi Maverick,

Can you get to device manager to see if your drive is installed and recognized by the system.
In windows 7/vista click start and type in 'device manager' in XP click start -> right cick on My computer and select properties and navigate to the device manger tab.

There will be a list of hardware installed in the list and you should find your drive under DVD/CD ROM drives. If there is a yellow exclamation mark - you need to update the drivers using the CD that came with the drive.

If the drive is not showing up in device manager you need to take your comp to a service center as there may be a fault with the controller.

Hi Friend,
Just remove the device with exclamation mark from device manager and restart your system. When your system restart again, automatically, it will detect the new hardware and install it properly.

Computer do not recognize kodak c703 and the transfer station is not working


Hi
I just had this problem with my D5000. I did a lot of troubleshooting to discover a Windows Code 19 error in device manager. To see whether this is your problem, go to Control Panel, select device manager. Your camera should be listed under cameras/imaging devices. If there is a yellow exclamation mark, disconnect your USB/transfer station. Using device manager uninstall the software drivers. Once uninstalled reconnect the camera and usb or transfer station. Drivers are on the camera. It should begin an automatic reinstall. When it says your hardware is successfully installed, you should be able to use the transfer station again. If not, and you got a disc with your station, then I suggest uninstalling all the software and reinstalling. Apparently in windows operating system, if the registry entry relating to that device is damaging, it will no longer recognise the device nor load the drivers. The only way to fix the registry is to uninstall the device and reinstall.
good luck

After reconfiguring my lap top's os, vista, I have no volume control installed.


Check your hardware device manager.

To access Device Manager, go to Start | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager (Device Manager is located under "Tasks" in the left hand column of the "System" menu). A list of hardware will display like the one shown below.

Hardware you expect to find is not listed If you cannot find the hardware you expect to find, it is likely the hardware is installed incorrectly. You should power down your computer and locate the physical hardware on your computer. Verify it is installed correctly, and restart your computer. Once you have restarted your computer, Windows should automatically recognize the hardware and go through an installation process. You may be asked to provide drivers during this installation.
If you verify that the hardware is installed correctly but still does not appear in Device Manager, please contact the DoIT Help Desk.
A yellow exclamation mark appears next to your hardware A yellow exclamation mark next to your hardware means the device is recognized by Windows but is not working properly. This usually indicates a driver problem. Update your drivers by following the directions below.
  1. Right-click on the hardware and choose Properties.
  2. Click on the Driver tab.
  3. Click on Update Driver....
  4. Click on Search automatically for updated driver software.
  5. Windows will automatically look for updated drivers for your hardware. If unable to find any, you will need to go the hardware manufacturer's website and download new drivers.
A red X appears next to your hardware A red X indicates that the hardware is disabled. Right-click on the hardware and click Enable. Your hardware should no longer have a red X.
If you are still having problems with hardware after you enabled it, please.

Cannot be reconized by computer, ie states no device connected


Try other USB ports on your computer. A USB port behind a PC usually has the most power output. Try a different cable if there's one available, to rule out a cable malfunction. Try another computer.  NEXT - Refresh the drivers STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager -> 1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. NOTE: The Sansa player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as: 1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode.)
See this tip posted here on this site. This might be what is going on with your player.  http://www.fixya.com/support/r3774047-solve_mp3_player_connection_problem 
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.  STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers 1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall. 2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes. A brand new Sansa player NOT recognized by the computer when plugged in: This may be caused by one of the following: 1. Minimum system requirements were not met. 2. Corrupted drivers. 3.

Operating systems supported by Sansa players: Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2

For MAC users, see Sansa player not recognized by a MAC OS Next Connect the device to the PC in MSC mode View/c200:  Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC  See List of Sansa players with instructions on enabling MSC mode
If all this has failed - Refresh the drivers
STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager 1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. SOLUTION 4 - If that didn't work, and you are running Windows Vista, verify if you have Service Pack 1 installed.   If all that does not work - Manually add the hardware driver. STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player in MTP mode STEP 2 - Manually install the device driver 1. Click Start select Control Panel then select Add Hardware. 2. Click Next to begin the Add Hardware Wizard. 3. Click Yes, I have already connected the hardware, then Next. 4. Scroll to the end of the list and select Add a new hardware device then click Next 5. Select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) then click Next 6. Select Portable Device or Windows Media Device from the list, then click Next 7. Select MTP device, then click Next. 8. Click Next to start loading the drivers. 9. Click Finish to close the wizard.
STEP 3 - Verify if the device is detected properly 1. Double-click My Computer. 2. Check if the device is showing up under Portable devices. SOLUTION 6 - Set user restrictions.
Some computers have user right restrictions that are set to disable access to new hardware. STEP 1 - Log-in as an Administrator STEP 2 - Edit restriction NOTE: Disconnect the Sansa player if connected. 1. Click Start then Run, 2. Type cmd, then the press Enter. 3.

Windows XP 'writemaster' not recognised


There were more problems and I needed a solution fairly quickly. The solution I used was to wipe the hard drive, re-install windows xp and start again. A bit drastic but the problem did not re-occur.
