    usb not working

  • DboyTech Wiz Dec 04, 2008

    the asus a8n-vm: was given this board with the knowledge that the USB ports supplied power yet lacked functionality as valid IO ports. what a waste. have done my research all across this google'd web of ours and have since to find a solution.

    i installed a pci slot usb card which does work (be it inly 2 ports and i have no hub so....) showing the connected devices under the device manager properties with the respected current rating/draw.

    btw, this mobo has awesome download thru-put speeds uncanny of any board i've ever seen, sometimes up to 2000kb/s a second from my ISP newserver when they really only allow 250kb/s.

    can'y really overclock on this thing but its better than a P4 anyday

    I used to be able to use the onboard USB ports but then suddenly they stopped working, i have a PCI USB card and they are working fine.

    My motherboard is ASUS K8N-VM

    I have A8N-VM CSM and have no working USB ports.
    The CMOS/BIOS settings are not the problem.
    The problem seems to be well documented by many users complaining at the ASUS website.
    I was using WinXP SP2 then reinstalled Vista on fresh hard drive.
    Although Device Manager shows functioning USB they do not work.
    Disappointed that ASUS has not addressed the problem.
    Which makes me reluctant to purchase a replacement ASUS board.
    Will probably switch brands.

    I saw a post that said put the CMOS battery in backwards for 30 seconds then reboot and set CMOS to default settings.
    Saw another that said turn off USB 2.0 support.
    None of this produced results.
    As IT manager for medium sized company I have had to diagnose
    lots of problems, this one appears to be hardware.
    Plain and simple.

I cant open my sd/mmc card reader and writer.


Some SD and MMC have a security feature in them. If so you will need the disk that came along with it. After you install it then that's the time you can fully utilize your SD/MMC. SD means Secure Data / MMC means Multi Media Card.
If your card reader is not appearing in the My Computer then check if it is detected in the Windows device manager. Go to START > CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER. Usually it is under the category of Disk Adapters or Human Interface Device. If it's not present then unplug and plug the device back in. Or try a different USB port to see if that will work. If it doesn't then most likely the reader is defective. But if it is detected and still not able to read the SD/MMC and the SD is being read by a different computer then the issue could be that the SD is not compatible with the reader.

Driver cannot detect this device


Hi,

Does the computer detect the fingerprint reader at all? If it shows up in 'device manager' with a yellow exclamation mark then you have a driver issue. In this case try reinstalling your fingerprint reader driver software. If your device is not being detected at all, try reinstalling your usb drivers from within 'device manager' then plugging your fingerprint reader in once again. If this doesn't solve your problem, you will need to have the reader tested as it is most likely faulty.


Best wishes,

Multimedia card slot not working


If the card slot is not working the fault is either the driver being missing or the card reader is damaged .. If you know it works ... just go to the support site and download the driver for it and install it ..
If the card reader was not a standard on this desktop , there is a possibility the driver is not on the hp site.. and you have to see what model is the card reader and what make and go to their support site ... (the card reader's manufacturer site )
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3254035#N152
If it seams that it has no driver fr the card reader i suggest to install the driver for the chip set .. maybe the card reader is not see cause it does not have all drivers for buses..
another way to install teh driver is to go to device manager by click right on computer folder ..and in there select properties / hardware /device manager ..
In the list look to see the card reader .. if it isn't present click right on computer in the list ..and select scan for hardware changes..
It will scan and show all devices connected and with no driver..
If you are running windows 7 or vista you can try to select the reader when it appears in the list ..click right on ir and select update driver ..and let the windows look for a driver on line .. or select one in the list ..But the best will be to locate the exact driver and install it .
Also if all seam OK but the reader still would not work open it and check the connections on the board.. This card reader is plugged on a usb port in the board .. and it may have an issue with the connecter ..Or try to install the usb 2.0 driver cause if this is a 2.0 usb device ..it may be not seen by the windows without this driver ..

Sandisk is not being recognized on my computer


SOLUTION 1 - Verify if minimum system requirement is met.
SanDisk card readers support Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4.

For MAC users, see
Troubleshooting USB device on MAC



SOLUTION 2 - Verify the reader's status under Device Manager.

STEP 1 - Connect the reader to the PC

NOTE: It is recommended that you plug your card reader to the back USB port on your PC to ensure that there is enough power from the USB port for the card reader to be detected properly.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer.
2. Select Manage.
3. On the left pane, click Device Manager.

NOTE: The card reader will appear in two places: Disk Drives and Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage. If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) next to the device, try to refresh the drivers.

STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.

STEP 4 - Verify if the reader is detected
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Look for the card reader under Devices with removable storage.


SOLUTION 3 - Try other USB ports.
A yellow exclamation point (!) under Device Manager usually means that the device is not receiving enough power. If the reader is not receiving ample amount of power from the USB port, it may not function properly.


SOLUTION 4 - Change the drive letters

NOTE: The SDDR-89 reader should show 4 drive letters under My Computer.

Computer won't recognize my nikon coolpix 4600


You need to give some additional information. What OS are you using? USB, with all newer OS's is native and you shouldn't have to have any special drivers or software to get the camera detected by the computer. Simply plug it in and go to "My Computer" and it should be seen. If this is not the case, start with the physical connections first. Check the USB cable between the two. if a 2nd cable does the same thing, check a different device with the same cable and connection port on the computer. If the port works, and it recognizes another device, you have to look at the camera. If it doesn't recognize the 2nd device, look at the port on the computer. If ANOTHER port doesn't work, go into the Hardware device manager and ensure that USB ports have not been disabled. If it's the camera, chances are the port has died. If this is the case and you don't want to trade the camera in, try getting a $30 card reader and place the data card into the reader to ensure that the card isn't the issue. The reader will ensure that you can transfer the images and will also save some wear and tear on your camera.

USB ports work at 1.1; s/b 2.0


Your computer is functioning correctly.
The USB ports on your laptop are USB1 ports its pard of the hardware.
Your PCMCIA USB 2 card runs at USB 2 speed and therefore when you connect a USB 2 device to this port you will not get this USB message.

Lancard


Hi,
I am not clear whether your card is lost or lancard is not getting detected by computer

>>If it is lost then you can connect your computer by USB Cable by installing the drivers for the USB if the USB is not getting detected.

>>If your computer is not able to detect the Lan Card.

1)Check the computer in safe mode with networking by pressing the F8 or any Function key whether the card is showing in Device manager or not

>> Steps for Device manager:
Click start> Click run> Type devmgmt.msc> check under network adapters or in other devices

2) Check whether the Card is properly plugged in the Mother Board of the computer

3) If it is then check the Lan Card by plugging it into another slot
