The printer connection is probably a square looking plug in. The correct cable will have a different connection on each end. One for the computer the other for the printer. Cables are generally supplied with the printer. Replacements can be purchased from any computer store. If you have an ethernet connection you should be able to access the printer if you connect it to your router.

How do I put MP3 files on Kubik Evo 4gb?


The easiest way is to plug it into a PC - any Mac, Linux or Windows machine will see it as a USB flash drive. Copy the mp3 files you want to listen to into the Music folder. The trick is when you disconnect - unmount the flash drive (or eject it if using Windows) and then wait for the Evo to switch from USB connect symbol to the charging symbol. If it does not change after 5 minutes, unplug it, flip the side switch to off, then back to on and it should be OK.

I have a logitech flash drive that is not picked up by my computer when I slot it into the USB port - I went to my computer and checked under disk management but it is not even coming up under there - do I...


Hi.

USB flashdrives are usually all plug and play so you don't need any additional drivers for them.

Try plugging the flash drive into a different computer. If it works on another computer your USB slots maybe faulty.
If the flash drive is not picked up by another computer then the flash drive is probably faulty.

Sandisk cruzer 8gb suddenly not recognized when connected to my computer


1. Try the other USB slots to see it the board is ok. Most modern pcs have two slots in the front and two to four slots in the back, try them all.

2. Do you have another pc that you can plug it into? If it works on that one you may have driver problem or the board is bad on the other one.

3. Have you tried to plug other USB devices into the slot(s) to see if the port is ok?

I have the same one and have had to mess it sometimes. Have to right clicked the "Safely Remove Hardware" in the right corner of the task bar. Right click and then left click the Safely Remove Hardware. That will show you all USB devices loaded. If you see the Flash Drive, click it and when you see the next prompt to remove it wait a few seconds and then plug it back in. If that does not work, reboot and leave the Flash Drive plugged in and see if it loads when the pc fully is loaded.

4. Goto the Control Panel> System > Hardware > Device Manager. Look for your drive in the list of Disk Drives. Pick it and then pick the Action Menu and Scan for hardware changes. If the Flash Drive is working properly you should not see any errors. You should also be able to see the drive in explorer.

5. If you still do not see the Flash Drive in explorer but you do see it in Device Manager, right click it in Device Manger and unstall it and reboot and let windows search and reinstall the device drives.

Good luck and post back.

I cannot use my usb or flask drive because it is write protected


4 different ways how to eventually solve this problem:
1) Try a program Thumbscrew (http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=security/thumbscrew-software-usb-write-blocker) which switches storage devices' write protection on or off.

2) Or do the same thing manually, by go to Start > Run > type "regedit" > Ok HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies\WriteProtect
Value 1 is for "on" and 0 for "off".

3) Plug the USB hard driver in different USB slots on your computer, maybe one of them is faulty.
4) Disable the Disk Write Caching of the relevant USB hard disk drive:
  1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab.
  3. Click Device Manager.
  4. Click the plus sign (+) next to the Disk Drives branch to expand it.
  5. Right-click the drive on which you want to enable or disable disk write caching, and then click Properties.
  6. Click the Disk Properties tab.
  7. Click to select or clear the Write Cache Enabled check box as appropriate.
  8. Click OK.

Hard disk not detected sometimes


I can think of 3 possible causes to your problem:

1. Faulty cable - try replacing the cable by borrowing a working cable from a friend. If this solves the problem then you need to buy a new cable

2. Lack of power - some USB drives especially those for high capacity drives require extra power aside from that provided by USB. If you do not have a separate power leading to your drive, check if there is a separate power slot and run a cable from it to your outlet/USB slot. Just make sure that the voltage levels are correct.

3. USB Slot - some laptops' USB slots do not produce power enough to drive a hard disk. Other devices may work (e.g. keyboards, mouse) but not hard drives. Try to use another slot in your laptop. If this works, remember to use the same slot next time.

Hope this helps.

Firewire 800 cable


No such thing s a dumb question, I transfer from my Canon XL1 to my Mac IBook with firewire all the time. You have three choices: 1. Buy a cable with two different ends - one that will fit your camera (the tiny one so small it is hard to insert) and one that will fit the Mac. Your Mac should have two different types of firewire ports - the semi-round one and the square one that looks like a USB port, but isn't. The symbols are different  for firewire ports firewire and USB ports. But all firewire ports, regardless of the configuration will have the firewire symbol and all USB ports will have the USB symbol.  Either firewire symbol port will work. I have two different firewire ports on my MacBook G4 and use them both,  I keep a bunch of firewire connectors around. They usually come with outboard hard-drives in various configurations. Sold en Ebay or at computer stores Solution 2: Feed your firewire through an outboard drive that will accept the 400 firewire (many do) and then take another firewire, say an 800, from that drive into your computer. I always capture to a hard drive then edit from there. The idea of a firewire bus is that you can connect a number of drives in parallel and mount them all. Available for as little as $69.
Solution 3: Buy a firewire port card for you MacBook which slips into a slot on the side, and gives you connectivity with the 400. It also frees up your main firewire port. I bought one on Ebay for $24 that came with all the adaptors. I was pulling my hair out too until I figured out the system.

Access


It sounds like you may have a problem with either your USB port or the cable that you are using.  

Try plugging in another device into the USB port.  If that works without constant pressure, try using a different USB cable for your drive.
