Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I download pictures thru a USB hub from either the camera or a flash drive, some of the pictures have a horizontal grey film over the lower part of the picture, or the lower part of the picture is shifted horizontally. This happens with Windows Vista. On my old computer with Windows XP, the pictures download correctly. This also happens if I insert the media card into the media slot, but not if I burn the pictures to a CD on my old computer, and download the pictures from the CD on my new Vista computer.

    I have been working with HP on the problem. When I removed all the USB attached equipment, and then go to Device Manager to select the Root Hubs and then click "Uninstall", the problem went away. However, when I re-installed all the USB attached printer, scanner, and Belkin (powered) hub, the problem reappeared. I just finished doing this today, so I will remove everything again, and maybe reattach one item at a time, finishing with the hub. The problem occurs no matter which USB port I use.

    When I installed the printer alone, the problem disappeared. When I installed the printer + scanner, the problem resurfaced. I removed the scanner, and installed the printer + Belkin powered hub, and the problem disappeared again. The scanner was causing the problem, although I would have assumed it was the hub. The Belkin hub model number is F5U234, but apparently it wasn't the problem. Thanks for your help!

    try plugging the usb cable directly into the port not through the hub.

    one of the problems is that with all of those usb devices connected you are pulling a lot of power. Get a usb hub that has external power, the one you have may have a plug in for external power, if you would like to post the model I can check for you.

    That hub does have the ability to plug in an external power source.. I noticed on your posts you stated the Belkin (powered) hub. Does this hub plug into your surge protector to provide extra power? The manual for this model states that there is an adapter available but the hub itself is now discontinued. All usb hubs are powered by the usb bus in the computer but for high power items like a scanner an external boost of power is needed.

How do i download pictures from a verizon lg cellphone


There are a number of ways to do it. 1) you can use a cable that plugs into the camera and the other end of the cable plugs into the usb port of the computer. Most camera's come with this cable, if not it's a pretty common cable to purchase for less than $10.00. Once you plug it into both the camera and the computer, turn the camera on and the computer will recognize the usb camera device. You'll have to navigate to where your pictures are but that should be easy just open the folders until you find them. 2) you can buy a usb card reader than handles different types of cards. Remove the card from the camera and place it in the card reader device. Once again your computer will recognize the usb card reader and you can navigate thru the folders to find your pictures. 3) You can email them to yourself then go to the computer and open your emails and save the pictures.

Compac Evo D300v and Emachine W3650-usb do not detect devices


One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
 
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

When I plug in my Iphone computer shuts down


Make sure you've got the latest version of Itunes installed, if you have Itunes on your PC at all.

Try changing your drive letters: Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance. Make sure you are in Category View. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane. Right-click the drive, the partition and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Change. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the drive letter change.

Try the IPhone now.

I have a 320 Western Digital external drive. It works fine if I plug it directly into the computer usb drive. HOwever, I want to use it thru a hub cause it is difficult to get to the back of my computer. ...


Does your External drive have a seperate power supply? Or does it get its power through the USB port.

If it gets its power from the USB port then by adding a hub you are essentially dividing the amount of power supplied by the number of ports extended.

One possible solution that could solve that situation would be to get what is called a powered hub. Which is exactly as the name suggests. The Hub has an external power supply so that it can provide even power to all of the ports.

I hope this helps
If not please post an update and I can try to find a better solution
If you need more help please post what Model of WD ext drive you have (ie....My book, Elements, Passport etc...)

Thanks,
Dave
