EZ201 Rca Small Wonder Camcorder

I recently purchased a small wonder camcorder and whenever I hook it up to my computer a message comes up that says USB device not recognized. I was wondering if you would be able to help me figure out why it wont work on my computer.

Re: EZ201 Rca Small Wonder Camcorder

It isn’t your computer: this camera (although it is otherwise great) has serious interface issues with computers. Mine is driving me crazy and I am in South America, so all I can do is rely on these tech forums to try to get some clues. When I connect my camera to my computer, sometimes the computer sees it and it transfer files and edits just fine. Other times it sees and transfers, but then the software wont edit (says there is an error). Other times it sees it but the computer says it doesn’t recognize the device, and the software therefore wont run to upload the files. However, if I leave it plugged in long enough, *sometimes* like an hour later, it just all of a sudden recognizes it – but sometimes it never does, all day long. Sometimes I plug it in and it doesn’t show up on any drive at all, even if I change it from one USB port to another. There is a newer laptop here running Vista that never once has been able to see the camera, and an older one running XP that sees it every single time, but suffers a power surge because it is too old and tells me to unplug the device and reset the port and not to use it there again. When I can get my computer to recognize it, I immediately run the upgrade available on the site and that usually fixes the problem for a few days – the computer can see the camera and recognize it for a few days – until it cant again! (Make sure to follow the instructions all the way through, which include disconnecting the camera from the computer and pressing the delete button on the camera after the download, and then turning the camera on again to finish the process.) The upgrade usually also fixes the software glitches (for when the computer recognizes it and I can upload videos, but not edit them, but today for example, the upgrade hasn’t fixed the glitches and I cannot edit at all. I am going to try deleting the RCA memory manager program and uploading again through the camera. One big problem I have is that I don’t have the original disk with me, so when the software goes psycho I have to download the program through the online upgrade that only will work when it interfaces with the plugged in camera – which depending on the day, may or may not be recognized by my computer, or even APPEAR on any drive. That’s where I am. Please let me know if anyone knows how to solve this.

Make sure you have the latest version of USB on your computer. I just purchased a Small Wonder EZ101 on ebay and it connects to my laptop without a problem.

RCA small wonder EZ 101 won't power up

I found that the RCA Small Wonder is very touchy when it comes to batteries. My unit went out 2x on me and I almost there it out. First time for no reason except I tried to put videos on computer. 2nd time I put rechargable batteries that I asume we're to powerful for the unit. I let it sit for a while and put regular AcDelco batteries in it and it was fine.

If the video is stored to a memory card, you can use a memory card reader. It could be that the cable between your camera and computer is bad and should be replaced.

Do you have another USB port available?
