On Windows 2000, XP, and Vista, you can get to Device Manager by right clicking on your desktop's "My Computer" (or "Computer" for Vista) and select "Properties". Then click the "Hardware" tab. Then click the "Device Manager" button (Vista may be slightly different).

As for why they are recognized on your friend's laptop but not yours, it's going to depend on what operating systems both are running and what the brand/models of the camera and scanner are. If there are drivers required to run the camera and scanner, try uninstalling and reinstalling them.

Please download first the most recent device drivers for your Plustek Opticfilm 7200 scanner from Plustek's website.
Log-on as an administrator to your Windows system, if your aren't already.
Delete the installed SilverFast software and then install the downloaded drivers.
Please reboot your system now, again logging on as admin. You want to download the latest version of SilverFast for your scanner http://www.silverfast.com from website and install it, too.
After another reboot, please check if your scanner is displayed in both, device manager (from control panel "system" > "hardware") and control panel (under "scanner and cameras").

If if was working properly in the past, the problem is usually due to the device (your scanner, fax or camera) has somehow come unplugged from it's USB connector and Windows no longer "sees" the device. Try powering OFF the unit, unplug your USB cable from it. then power OFF your computer. Now, power ON your computer, log into Windows. Next, plug your scanner/fax/camera into an available USB port. WATCH to see if Windows detects the device. IF it does, attempt to scan an item... it should start the Scan/Fax wizard.
IF it does NOT recognize the unit or start the wizard, I would look to remove the device from Device Manager and try again.

Computer do not recognize kodak c703 and the transfer station is not working


Hi
I just had this problem with my D5000. I did a lot of troubleshooting to discover a Windows Code 19 error in device manager. To see whether this is your problem, go to Control Panel, select device manager. Your camera should be listed under cameras/imaging devices. If there is a yellow exclamation mark, disconnect your USB/transfer station. Using device manager uninstall the software drivers. Once uninstalled reconnect the camera and usb or transfer station. Drivers are on the camera. It should begin an automatic reinstall. When it says your hardware is successfully installed, you should be able to use the transfer station again. If not, and you got a disc with your station, then I suggest uninstalling all the software and reinstalling. Apparently in windows operating system, if the registry entry relating to that device is damaging, it will no longer recognise the device nor load the drivers. The only way to fix the registry is to uninstall the device and reinstall.
good luck

Windows vista pc does not recognise my canon 350d?


Go to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and see if any of the USB connections has an exclamation mark next to it. If so, select it and delete it. Close the dialog box. Now plug in your USB again and see if it automatically recognises the device (camera). Of course, you have to turn on the camera after connecting the USB (I've met people who have been stumped for days before realising that the camera has to be switched on in the first place)

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

Trying to erase a light with a scanner


There is no real place where scanners come up except when they are plugged in. Once plugged in they should come up in device manager which you can access by right clicking My Computer select Manage Computer and you will see the Device Manager. Once selected you will see all the hardware devices connected to your computer. Under Scanners should be the scanner wich you can then right click and choose uninstall.
To connect a scanner simply plug it in and use the CD it came with to install the driver and software which should pick up the device and add it. The scanner software itself is what picks up the scanners and alows you to use there functionality.
What is it your trying to do re-install, add, remove a scanner. Is it the software thats playing up or the scanner itself?

Windows will recognise the camera as a storage device without any drivers or installation disks being installed...just plug it in, turn on the camera and wait till windows recognises it...it will then appear in My Computer as a new driver (E:,F:.G: etc etc).

Right click "My Computer" and choose properties.

Click on "Hardware" from the tabs up the top, then the "Device Manager" button

Click on your computer name (top of the tree list) and you will notice a new button apear up the stop (scan for new hardware)...click on that and then follow the prompts that come up (Found Hardware Wizard)..


Also you can go to

http://www.vivitar.com/support.php and search for your camera and grab whatever software came that was with the camera
