Hi there. I see you are having a problem with your USB port for windows Vista. try going to your computer manufacturer website and look up your laptop series for driver downloads. What brand is the laptop? I have a IBM/lenovo ThinkPad T40 with Windows Vista on it and my USB ports work fine. Also how old is your laptop? Because it may have USB 1.0 and not 2.0. Mine is 2.0 and works fine in Vista.

My webcam is not recognized and I get a message that says that the camera is not turned on. I cannot find the device in my device manager in order to repair it and the driver. I need help! I can be...


You should first verify that the USB port can recognize a USB memory stick i.e. verify that the USB port hardware is working. If its is not, use Device Manager to reload the USB Host Adapter drivers.


If this is an external USB device (laptop or desktop) ...

the Device Manager will always locate the camera, if only as an Other Device or sometimes with the wrong driver in another device class. One possibility, if the host PC is a laptop, is check the Power Scheme. Set this to Always On, as this is supposed to (but not always..) stop Windows from turning off external interfaces (such as USB) to conserve power.

Check if the camera will appear in Device Manager on another PC. This will verify that the camera hardware is functional.

If this is a laptop built-in WebCam, it will usually appear in Device Manager under Imaging Devices. If it does not, I'd suspect that the camera hardware has a problem.

Let's assume that this is an external USB Camera. When the camera driver is loaded, the driver INF file is copied to a new file

C:\Windows\inf\oem.inf where is an arbitrary number.

When you plug in the camera, Windows PlugandPlay looks in C:\Windows\inf for the correct driver to assign to the device.

Windows can get confused about drivers, esspecially if you have attempted to reload the driver, or load a newer version.

If you do a search for all C:\Windows\inf\oem*.inf containing "Toshiba" or "WebCam" you should be able to locate one or more oem*.inf files that is the installed driver for your webcam.

Lets say this file is oem31.inf Delete this file and also oem31.pnf if its present.

This removes the last driver that was installed. Now, run Device Manager, and plug in the camera. If Device Manager can locate the camera (as an Other Device to start with), you should be able to reload the correct driver, either from the installed driver directory (if there is one) or from you camera CD.

* Download & install the Motorola USB Drivers

* Search for file 'motccgp.inf' at C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository,
mine is in a folder named motccgp.inf_x86_neutral_181385012a0af6ec

* Open motccgp.inf with MS Notepad, scroll down to:

[Motorola]
&#xUS;BMOTCCGP% = MOTCCGP, USB\VID_22B8&PID_3804

* Copy the below code:

USB\VID_22B8&PID_4061&REV_0001
USB\VID_22B8&PID_4061

* Paste the code one line below &#xUS;BMOTCCGP% = MOTCCGP, USB\VID_22B8&PID_3804.

It should look like this:

&#xUS;BMOTCCGP% = MOTCCGP, USB\VID_22B8&PID_3804
&#xUS;BMOTCCGP% = MOTCCGP, USB\VID_22B8&PID_4061&REV_0001
&#xUS;BMOTCCGP% = MOTCCGP, USB\VID_22B8&PID_4061

* Exit & save motccgp.inf

* Open Device Manager, plug in your phone’s USB, quickly double-click the ‘Unknown’ device (mine disappears in 2 seconds)

* Click ‘Update Driver’ > Click ‘Browse my computer for driver software’> Click ‘Browse’

* Locate the folder that motccgp.inf resides in at C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository, click ‘Next’, the drivers should install

* Unplug your phone’s USB and then plug it back in

Note:

To attempt another Motorola model phone or a W376g that may have a different USB\VID code, try this:

* Open Device Manager, plug in your phone’s USB, quickly double-click the ‘Unknown’ device

* Click the ‘Details’ tab, under the “Property’ heading, click the menu

* Click ‘Hardware IDs, copy or write down the USB\VID codes for your phone

* Replace the USB\VID codes in the above steps with your USB\VID codes

2. In Registry Editor, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

3. In the details pane, double-click DevicePath.

4. Add a semi-colon to end of the existing text, and then add the path to %SystemRoot%\System32. The result should be similar to: %SystemRoot%\inf;%SystemRoot%\System32

Do not remove the %SystemRoot%\inf file path from the DevicePath registry entry.

5. Click OK to save the new value, and then close Registry Editor.

6. Delete “INFCACH.1” FROM C:\Windows and C:\Windows\Inf Directories (if it exists)

If there isn’t – follow the below steps:
a) From another Vista system (copy it out of another Vista system and copy it directly into the C:\Windows\inf directory

OR

8. Open device manager, uninstall all unknown devices (right click, uninstall) so they all disappear from the list

9. Reboot the computer

Unable to access my 4 GB Transcend pen drive with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. Able to access it with Windows XP successfully but always prompting "Unable t find driver" when tried with Vista


Here are the 3 possible solutions to this problem,

SOLUTION 1 :- 
Make sure the you have the Service Pack 1 installed for you vista computer.
You can find it out by opening the run command and type "winver" (without quotes) there. If it's not showing SP1 please update Windows Vista to Service Pack 1 which includes the update to fix this problem as this was the problem when vista was launched but fixed with SP1.

If updating vista does not resolve the issue try the solution provided below:

SOLUTION 2 :- 

Manually locate the driver within the Vista operating system. 

Microsoft Windows Vista may not find any driver for the device that is plugged in the USB port because the usbstor.inf (for MSC device) or wpdmtp.inf (for MTP enabled devices) is not present inside the C:\Windows\INF folder.  

To resolve this issue, you must copy the driver files to the C:\Windows\INF folder. 

Browse to the following folder:

1. C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. 
2. Look for the folder that starts with usbstor.inf_. 
3. Copy all the files inside this folder to C:\Windows\INF. 
4. Disconnect and reconnect the device. 



If the problem still persists, try this Solution: 

SOLUTION 3 :-
Clear hidden devices and make changes to the Registry

First backup your registry by  following these steps,
1. Click Start 
2. Type regedit on the start search field, then press Enter. 
3. Click File then select Export. 
4. Under Export Range select All. 
5. Type in the desired name to be saved. 
  
STEP 2 - Remove Hidden Devices 
1. Click Start.. 
2. Type cmd on the start search field , then press Enter. 
2. Type set DEVMGR_SHOW_DETAILS=1 and press Enter. 
3. Type set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1 and press Enter. 
4. Type start devmgmt.msc and press Enter. 
5. Device Manager window will appear  
5. Click View, then select Show hidden devices. 
6. Click + to expand Imaging devices, Unknown devices, and USB devices. 
7. Verify if there are any devices and unknown devices (including grayed out devices). Uninstall. 

STEP 3 - Remove all oem*.inf files 
1. Click Start. 
2. Type cmd on the start search field and press Enter. 
3. In the command line, type in the following commands and press Enter after each command: 
  cd \windows\inf 
  ren infcache.1 *.old 
  ren oem*.inf *.old 
  del C:\windows\setupapi.log 
  exit 

STEP 4 - Remove entries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB 

Remember,if you have a USB keyboard or mouse, do not remove the VID entry for these devices, otherwise, Windows may not restart correctly. 

1. Click Start 
2. Type regedit on the start search field, then press Enter. 
3. Click on the "+" symbol beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE 
4. Navigate to \System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB. 
5. Highlight and delete all the VID_xxxx entries. 


Please note that if you have a USB keyboard or mouse, do not remove the VID entry for these devices, otherwise, Windows may not restart correctly. 
  

After this turn off your PC completely then with the PC turned off, plug the USB flash drive to a USB port and then turn on the PC. 
Now, a New Hardware Detected balloon will appear and the USB drivers will load automatically.

Please let me know if the problem persists.

Need vista driver for FD-05PUB teac usb floppy drive


You should have (if bought new) had a mini disc in with the drive. If not try the manufacturers site and download it. It's also possible by doing the add/remove hardware and pointing towards Microsoft for the driver it will install for you. Hope this helps...Tango.
