What is not reconized, are you talking about a drive, a Windows Internet problem, or a Windows start up feature?

Wont reconize


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Computer not reconizing camera


Make sure your camera is off before you plug it in, then turn it on. Also, you can right click in the my computer window and choose refresh. It should be there. If not, try wiggling the cable at the connections to make sure you have a good cable. Good luck.

Equipment fails after hub is used


If you need additional USB ports, the best way to go is to get a USB card that fits into the computer. That way it comes with a CD software program and can be updated. They are now USB 2 configured and work great. I have had to remove a number of USB hubs to fix other computers that have had the same problem.
Hope this info is of some help. Bud
