USB is not detected for MSR20633U Windows xp OS.

I know this sounds strange but make sure it's plugged into the right USB port. My iPod seems to have a preference as to which USB port it gets plugged into.

How do I upload pictures onto my Dell d600

If your photos are stored on a SD memory card then remove the SD memory card from the camera and insert the memory card into an USB memory card reader. Connect the USB memory card reader into the USB port of your Dell computer. The Dell wiil detect the card reader as an external storage device, you can then open the folder on the memory card that contains the photos and then copy them to your computer.

Bluetooth device not detected in device manager and not even in bios. bluetooth device shown none in bios. what can be done to solve the problem.

if the bluetooth device is not detected in the BIOS, chances are, your laptop did not ship with a bluetooth device. Try to go to and check the original system configuration to verify if your system indeed came with a bluetooth card. you can also check with dell support about it. if you have verified the card is available and it is enabled in the BIOS, try to remove and reconnect the card and if it is still not detected, you may have to get a new bluetooth card or request for warranty service/replacement if applicable.

System could not detect the pend drive

Hi viveka_sirka,

If you have the 4GB card the most likely problem is your reader is not SDHC compatible. SDHC cards are all SD cards that are 4GB and larger. If your reader is the reason then you must get a new reader to plug into your USB port that will read SDHC cards.

Cannot connect my PDA to PC


Normally for when you connect any device to pc using USB port, windows detects it. Sometime it may take time.
Few initial things you may check....

1) You must have your PDA in ON condition
2) If PDA is not getting connected on port, try connecting to other USB port (assuming that pc normally have more than one USB port)
3) Make sure the cable that you are using between PDA to PC is working properly (normally you can check this by using other cable)
4) If you have intalled some anti virus program on your pc then check the settings of same.
5) last but not least check the settings of window's firewall (part of OS)

If everything of above is fine then either USB ports of pc or of PDA might not be working.

All the best!!
