    Is there more than one usb cord that can be used for the S730? I was under the impression that there was only one that's why I didn't specify. I appreciate your answer though.

You did not say what type of usb cable you needed. I get my cables on ebay or

The last time I ordered a cable for a camera, it was a USB A to mini B 5 pin.

monoprice will most likely have the cheapest prices.

    There are different types of USB connectors, you did not state which connectors you have on your cable. Not all Camera MFR's use the same cable. You only asked where you could buy one, and I answered that question. Now if you want to make sure you get the correct type of cable, I need to know that information. I sure the manufacture will sell you the cable, but at an inflated price. USB cables are cheap if you don't buy from the big box stores and the camera manufactures.

    CDW is another good place, but not the cheapest when it comes to price. But the price will still be better than other places. The last camera cable I ordered from CDW was about $7. Monoprice has them cheaper.

Why won't mu usb cord work for downloading pictures

Here is one possible solution. Some devices require that you use the USB cable that came with the device. Other USB cords won't work. This happened on a Nexus tablet I bought recently. When I tried to charge it with another USB cord, nothing happened. I had to use the exact USB cord that came with the tablet, even though both cords looked identical.

We have a Lexmark 7170 printer. We have had no issues with it up until last week when it stopped printing. When you try to print it says printing but nothing happens or else it will say Communication...

Hi there, I have a solution for you. Unplug the printer/scanner for 30min. then plug it back in again.
This will reset all functions. The usb cable was good to start with, you didn't have to replace it..
When you run a print over another print it will jam up memory in printer. Clear all print jobs and you will be good to go.

Usb cable not detected

  1. Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, connect the USB cable directly into the computer.


  2. Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
    There shouldn't be any resistance when connecting the USB cable to the device. If the cable does not easily slide into the device's port, look at the end of the connector. The shape of the connector should match the port on the device.

    Note: All USB cables will have a USB icon on one side. The side of the cable where the icon is situated is different than the other three sides.

Icon on USB Cable


Shape of the USB Connector


  1. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.

  2. Make sure the correct USB cable type is being used.

Incorrect (A to A) USB Cable


Correct (A to B) USB Cable

My computer can't detect the leapfrog tag junior.. what should i do?

I had the same problem. Sat in front of the computer for an hour trying to figure out what was wrong. In the end I unplugged the usb cord and plugged it into another usb outlet and it worked. Perhaps you could use someone else's computer? It seems that the usb connection is quite unpredictable.

Hp deskjet 3650 printer works very slowly with win 7

tion one: Check the power supply Follow these steps to check the power supply to make sure that it is functioning correctly.
  1. Turn the product so that you can access the rear side.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 1: Unplug the power cord from the back of the product
  3. Remove any devices between the product and the power outlet, such as surge suppressors or power strips.
  4. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet.
  5. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the power supply. Replace devices between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product connected directly to the wall outlet.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution two: Check the USB connection
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product. Figure 2: Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the computer.
  3. Wait five seconds.
  4. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the product and the computer, according to the following guidelines: The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Connect the small end of the USB cable to the back of the product Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer
  5. After you make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:
    • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
    • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high-quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (6 feet, 6 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
    • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the problem.
    • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
    • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.
  6. After checking the USB connection, print and time a self-test page again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the USB connection. Replace the USB cable or modify the connection to meet the preceding criteria.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution three: Check cartridge compatibility Incompatible cartridges can cause the slow printing problem. To check the cartridge compatibility for your product, go to HP SureSupply . To identify your cartridge in a language other than English, click the language link near the globe icon (c01906983.gif ) in the upper right corner of your browser. Examine the cartridges in your HP product, and then follow these steps to check which cartridges are compatible with your product. The number on the cartridge label must match the numbers listed on HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are not compatible with your HP product , replace the cartridges. You can order replacement cartridges directly from HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are compatible with your HP product , continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution four: Perform a reset A reset drains the power from the product and returns it to the same settings after restarting.
  1. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 3:
  3. Disconnect the data cable (USB or Ethernet, depending on how your product is set up) from the back of the product. USB cable Ethernet cable
  4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Figure 4: Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
  5. Wait about 30 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn on the product.
  7. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.

My olympus fe-45 won't download pictures through the usb cord. It takes pictures fine, but when I plug it into the computer, the camera screen says 'one moment' and it stays like that, and the computer...

This is not a full solution, but you might try another USB cord or a new USB 'hub' or simply another version of photo transfer. I have had good results with SanDisk's 5 in 1 ImageMate card reader and accompanying software. Used Targus but it stopped working. Went back to SanDisk. USB is wonderful but there are so many access points for things to go wrong, including the jacks in your computer. Have just fought this through with a set of headphones which had worked great for over a year and then stopped. Fixed with a new 'mini-hub' and plug-in audio controller which replaces my sound card. Now can use USB connections on front of CPU and webcam finally works as well as headphones (much better music) and photo transfer. $25 well spent. Can return new headphones I ordered.

My computer wont reconize my mp3 player

Down load the firmware on Sansa's website. I have a Sansa 250R and it wouldn't work with the new replacement usb (Griffin) cord I bought at Best Buy. So I bought a Sansa Fuze and the cord that came with it worked on the E250R. Huh? Yeah, go figure...and oh, that replacement Griffin usb cord I bought worked fine with the new Fuze. I came real close to buying a new battery for the E250R but instead invested that money in the Fuze.

USB and speakers not working.

Have you got..
  1. A USB cable from the computer connected to the USB input on the monitor? It needs that cable to supply USB outputs from the monitor. The monitor acts as a USB hub.
  2. The speakers on the monitor also require a cable from the soundcard on your computer to the sound input of the monitor.
