I went ahead and downloaded the driver and when it says connect Creative Live Cam Optia now and i plugged it but i keep getting same error on my USB port "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it".

Hi, Are you getting a "USB device not recognized" error whenever you plug in a USB mouse, keyboard, or other USB device? I love USB and have 5 ports on my computer so that I can connect my mouse, keyboard, camera, phone, and printer to it all at once!

However, last weekend, my computer stopped recognizing my USB devices! The strange thing about it was that the USB ports were not bad because all of my devices were still getting power to them. I could still charge my cell phone without a problem!

usb device not recognized

So I started with the normal fixing methods, including uninstalling the drivers for my devices and reinstalling them. That didn't work! Next I tried System Restore thinking that maybe I had installed something and it caused a conflict with the USB system drivers. That didn't work!

I read online that in order to fix this problem I should go to Device Manager and uninstall all of the devices under USB Controllers. Restarted the computer, reinstalled the USB drivers, but the problem STILL did not go away!

You may also see in Device Manager that the device shows up as an "Unknown Device".

So how did I finally fix the problem? Well, apparently it's a super simple solution! No need to edit the registry, uninstall drivers, or anything of that sort.

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.

First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.

Hope this helps someone fix that pesky "USB device not recognized" Windows error!


Have a nice day...

Hi, I have a TRUST WB-3400T 14383 and after I upgrade my OS to Win7 unfortunately this webcam is not recognized anymore by the OS. I downloaded specific driver from the TRUST support site (14383-02_02)....


please download the drivers for that webcam and it will start working some devices are pre-installed and thats the reason you don't have to install them by installing the new drivers your web cam will start working fine.

Hi I purchased an X4075 Lexmark Printer last October and just started getting a message that says it doesn't recognize my printer anymore and suggest I try many things ie: Unplug the printer, disconnect...


Pretty much you already did the basic troubleshooting steps. Most probably this is a software issue. There might be a software in your computer, like the print spooler, that got stopped/disabled somehow. Maybe the printer software got corrupted. Uninstallation then reinstallation of the printer software might help. A firewall can also block printer communications. These are just few of the causes of this sudden communication problem. But I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem and troubleshoot it and take this burden off your shoulder. Great job by the way.

MY COMPUTER IS NOT RECOGNIZING MY WEBCAB ANYMORE. I CANT FIND THE START UP DISC EITHER.


check the cables and make sure they are all still plugged in.. Especially power to the webcam. Next unplug the usb connector and reboot the machine. then plug the webcam back into the computer. If that doesnt work then try the webcam on another computer. It could have died permanently.

Hi, I have an external disk connected to an usb port. Sometimes my computer stop to recognize the connection and my external disk doesn´t works anymore, until the next reboot. What can I do to resolve...


The only other solution other than rebooting is to remove the cable from the usb port and reinsert it. Sometimes the computer will recognize the drive and it will work properly.

2 of 4 USB Ports Not Functioning


Most likely a motherboard problem, though you can try and re-do windows, best bet on getting it all to work is Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Though this might really get on your nerves having to do this multiple times, id get a new motherboard.

Doesn´t work anymore


Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?

If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.

Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.

The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?

Good luck!
