You have to have a mini usb to usb connecter. the small port on the back, the charging port acts as the usb port. unfortunatly they don't come with one.

Computer doesn't recognize garmin


Your computer uses USB Mass Storage Mode to detect your Garmin unit. If your computer does not detect your Garmin unit, you can try these troubleshooting steps:

Unplug the USB cable from the computer.
Turn the unit off and then back on again.
Plug the USB cable into your computer.
The unit either automatically goes into USB Mass Storage Mode or displays USB Mass Storage Mode as an option on the screen.

Note: If your computer still does not detect the unit, make sure that you plug the USB cable directly into the computer USB port and not the USB hub. If the cable is already plugged directly into the computer, try plugging it into a different port.

If you still experience problems, please contact Product Support.

It's on the back... its a mini-USB port, not a standard USB port. You have to use a mini-USB to USB cable.

Vu point digital film/slide converter wont work when i plug the usb plug from the scanner into the computer a brief image appears across the screen aprox 3 secs (pic of scanner itself) then goes blank. I...


if this unit came from HSN (most did) then their specs show that it needs xp .. but their video claims it works for vista as well .. actually it depends on which model you have .. the FS-C1-VP . runs only on XP and below .. model FS-C1-Vp-BX2 .. has software to run on Vista and below .. Model FC-C520-VP-Bx2..runs on anything including vista and doesnt require software .. it just looks like a Mass Stroage Device when you plug it in .. these all look like a nice little machines for slides and negitives .. you might try unplugging the device .. reload the software (if you have any) ... then reattach the unit (to a different port) .. still problems then the USB port may be going into current limit .. you can try a different USB port (maybe one at the back of the computer) or better yet use a port expander with its own power supply .. make sure you dont have other USB devices that might be drawing current from the same USB source device (ok with the expander) .. if that doesnt get it going then if it came from HSN you can call their customer service number .. 800 933 2887 ... your item number would be 320-712 ... if the port expander or other suggestions fix it then let us know ..

it sounds like the unit is just drawing more current than your USB port can supply .. that happens a lot with large USB memory sticks (8gb or more) .. they are getting very close to or even exceeding the spec on the port .. some USB ports can do it others just shut down .. the external port expander with a power supply will almost always fix that problem and they dont cost much .. they are kind of nice also because you can put the expander ports within easy reach.

I dont know how to plug the printer into the computer?


MP460 uses a USB cable if you get one (they are cheap) there should be a port on the back of your computer for it and with your printer switched on power up your computer and your computer should detect the printer. However if you have no USB port then you need either a new computer or an old printer that uses an old style port!

What is this small round hole for???


Although i have not seen your device specifically i looked it up and that unit if I am not mistaken has an option to plug a switching power adapter on it IF and only IF in case you might need it to power on additional devices. Some USB devices need more power than normal hence the adapter but any device that runs on its own power and small USB devices dont need such power then you do not need the external adapter ( Sold separately and not by the same company) Basically you are not missing anything dont worry if the unit works as it should then you are ok.

If you need further assistance just message me.

Power sugre with m240


Hi there. This message would indicate any one of the following: 1. You have a lot of USB devices plugged in to your computer, and the maximum power supply for the USB ports has been exceeded by plugging this player to your computer. It would be best if you unplugged 1 or 2 of the USB devices connected for the time being. 2. You are plugging the player on your front USB port, and may need to plug it in the rear USB port to acquire ample power supply (front USB ports do not get as much power as the rear USB port -- sad but true) 3. You are using a laptop and may need to try another USB port on that computer. Purchasing a self-powered USB hub would be ideal as it gets its power supply directly from the wall electrical socket.
