Question about RCA EZ101 HD Camcorder

Open Question

EZ101 gets "unknown usb device" error.

Have XP w/SP2 fully updated. Bought unit new,has had "tlc",not a scratch on
it. Problem started about 6 mo.ago. The program would load 10% of the
vids & completely lock up. (pgm.not responding). I found the EZ101 Restore
utility,that fixed the problem,several times. Now I get the "unknown usb
device" error,& the restore utility displays "no supported devices detected".
Looked at the device instance id & get "USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\4&2769D
55C&0&2". It does the same thing on another pc,but with a different instance
ID. ????? Is there any fix ? PC does not see it as a camcorder.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,Bob.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My RCA M4208RD-B not detect the PC and need firmware updater

This link below is for the EasyRip Installer software itself.

This link is for the firmware updater for EasyRip software.

See if this helps any. It appears that there are various problems with these players & it takes some "finess" to get them working properly. Even after the above software & updates, I am still banging my head on the wall. Good luck!!!

SOURCE: RCA RT2870 USB won't allow playlists or let me skip folders

I have this same system and it looks like the USB playback is lacking this feature, of switching folders. A workaround is to use shuffle play to jump to one of the last songs in the first folder, then turn off shuffle and skip forward a few songs until you get into the next folder....and so on. Not very good, but for this price I was glad to have USB playback.
Some generic MP3 players will work in the USB port, but they play exactly the same as a USB drive. SO no real solution for this.

SOURCE: computer not recongize the rca th1602 mp3 player

The first time I tried to restore the firmware in my Pearl it would not recognize it. I had to follow all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you run the software. Basically, try taking the battery out and waiting 10 seconds or so. Run the software and read all the instructions at the bottom of the popup window. then hold the play button, plug your player in, and keep holding that button until the software recognizes it. It works.

Presario c508us unknown device on downgrade vista to xp

Downgrading to XP I take it? A Microsoft/Windows update should pick up the device if you manually initiate the update and choose "Custom" for type of update. You will see Hardware and Software updates in addition to the Critical/Security updates that are automatically installed and XP SP2 should/could pick up the device in question. You'll be provided the chance to add these additional updates before reviewing and installing them.
Good luck.
