Tomtom 910 help please

Ive tried everything but throwing it in the road and running over it. It will not connect to my computer. Ive tried different usb ports ,resetting it, holding the power button . when i turn it on i get the splash screen with a picture if the tomtom and a flashing red and white x and nothing else.. when i plug it in the computer a little loading icon that says formatting pops up after about 5 to 10 min it goes away and shows a connected tomtom picture and i still cant get to do anything.

    same problem as jumpdown82. can anyone help please?

  • jumpdown82 Feb 11, 2008

    I have both and both are installed. I called tomtom and after about 20 mins got on the phone with a rep and she is mailing me a box to send my unit in for repair or replacement. Last purchase of a tomtom.

    I cannot get my computer to recognize the TomTom. I have installed, uninstalled and reinstalled TomTom Home, and have reset the TomTom several times. Mine gets stuck on the screen with the hand and the red X with a little "formatting" in the top left corner. Then it switches to the little picture of the unit, and will do nothing else.

    my tomtom reads no maps after regestering it on my computer

  • mad monkey Feb 12, 2009

    TomTom won't work in car. It just displays the dreaded white cross in a red circle. I tried to connect it via usb to my computer but the computer can't see it. Tried resetting to no effect. This is the second time this has happened. The first time was straight out of the box! For the amount of use it has had I think this is one of the worst purchases I've ever made.

My sata external usb western digital 320 gb drive only shows up as an unknown USB device. Is there any way to get my computer to recognize it. I have a laptop using windows xp. Ive tried unplugging...


First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
If your harddrive still not recognized then you need to repair your harddrive.Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa

My case logic optical mouse will not link up


Is this a wired or wireless mouse?

If this is a wired mouse, try connecting it into different USB port or different computer so that you would know if there's a problem with the USB ports or with the computer or with the mouse.

If this is wireless, try the following:

1. Replace the batteries of the mouse.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned ON.
3. Try connecting the USB wireless adapter of the mouse into different USB ports.
4. Connect also the adapter into different computer.
5. Make sure that there's no interference between the adapter and the mouse such as wireless phones, cell phones and other wireless devices.

Wireless mouse, cordless phones and cellphones are all running at 2.4Ghz frequency, so if there's a wireless device that's running on the same wireless freq, then it would interfere with the mouse that would cause the mouse not to work.

If same problem occurs after checking everything, then contact the manufacturer of the mouse for RMA (repair).

Have a great day!

Everio is not transferring videofiles to pc


Sometimes there are problems with unreliable/underpowered usb ports. To start with, make sure you are plugging directly into the computer usb port, not into a usb hub. Try a different usb port. If you are using a laptop, make sure it is running on AC power and not just battery power alone. That's the first step to troubleshoot... If it doesn't work, post more info regarding your computer type and operating system.

Music software of Samsung YH-925 20 GB MP3 can't regcognized the device


You may get the error that you're getting if there's a problem with the USB port of the computer, with the USB cable, or with the USB port of the device itself.

Try connecting the Samsung mp3 device to a different USB port of your computer. Usually, it's best to connect the device on the USB port at the back of the computer. Make sure that the USB cable is properly inserted on the USB port of the device and on the computer.

You may also try connecting the Samsung mp3 device to a different computer to isolate the problem.

Another isolation is to try connecting a different USB device on the computer, just to check if the USB ports of the computer is working properly.

Try using a different USB cable also, if you have any.

Driver for Canon EOS 400D


This camera does not require a driver on windows XP. The most common cause of USB related communication issues is the USB cord itself. Second most common cause is the USB port on the camera as they are easily damaged. You can fix the problem by buying a USB card reader instead of plugging the camera directly into your PC. If you use the camera's USB port it will eventually fail, they simply can not last through years of plugging and unplugging and the bumping around associated with use of the on board USB port. With the card reader you simply remove the memory card from the camera, plug it into the reader and then proceed to get your pictures. It is simple, reliable, and all around the best solution to this and all problems related to communicating with your camera over USB.

Installation


Could be your USB drivers for the actual port itself is giving you troubles. What you can do is this. Unplug the printer! Go to Device Manager(Right-click on my computer then click Properties, click on Hardware Tab then press Device manager Button) Look under Universal Serial Bus Controller. Is there a device with a yellow exclamation? if there is, right click on it and uninstall. Go to the top of the list the right click on your computer name and click on Scan for hardware changes! If it finds new hardware and prompts for drivers,(If asks to check online, select no, not at this time) select Install from specific location, then click next, Select the top one(Search these specific locations, and uncheck everything else)!! Next. It should go all the way through, if you get a propmt about unsigned driver click continue anyway! If it goes through try connecting your printer if not it will end in with an error, get back to me with the exact error!! Also your pc might require chipset drivers!! Get back to me with your computer specs if the above doesn't help! regards, babb
