    I can't connect my camera to my computer, because my usb port isn't working properly. When I hold the usb cord at a certain angle, it picks it up and can make the transfer, but it isn't connecting properly.

    My computer will not detect my camera (FinePix A205) any more . It used to be plug n play . I do not know what happened . It took amazing pics for a 2mp camera . Although , I always used a tripod for best results . After all , it is only 2mp . The files were small ,and for those who have dial-up,downloading was rather quick . I just wasted 2 weeks trying to get Finepix viewer to work and detect my camera . I'll never buy another FujiFilm product again ! Tomorrow morning I'm going to buy a new Kodak . If Fuji wants to make it near impossible to continue support for their past customers , I'll give another company a shot at taking my money ! They can't do any worse . I'll never get those 2 weeks back . And not to mention the stress ! Photography is supposed to be enjoyable and relaxing .

    same problem.....haiz

  • skrblr Mar 03, 2009

    I've tried this process half a dozen times:

    I connected the USB cable to the camera and the USB port on my computer. I turned on the camera (although the lens didn't swivel open like it usually does). (Sometimes I do it in reverse order: turn on the camera - and it swivels open - then plug in the USB. The same series of events follows, either way) Windows XP pops up with a message: "USB Device Not Recognized: One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message." I do so, and a box pops up. Under 'USB Root Hub', there are 8 ports. One is used by our scanner, and one, in bold, says "Unknown Device." I doubleclick it. Under 'Device Status,' it says: "No drivers are installed for this device." I then run through the whole maintain/repair/reinstall the EasyShare software, which I have on CD. It doesn't fix anything.

    I've checked the Kodak website, and while they have the manual (which I've perused in depth to no avail) and the software available for download, they have no drivers for a Kodak EasyShare C913.

    I've used the Memory Card (it says "Kodak Memory Card - 4GB - SD - HC - 2" on the front) in a USB memory card reader we have at school, and I'm able to upload all the pictures.

    It was working fine on my Mac, then I lent it to someone who plugged it into a PC and now my Mac doesn't recognize it when I plug it in. The camera turns on just like it would normally when the USB device is plugged in, and nothing happens on my computer, so I'm assuming it's a faulty connection? Not sure! Help please!

If the charging port for my zeiko 10 inch is broken,what other way can I charge

Some tablets have a charging port and a usb port. If your tablet is so equipped it should charge while connected to another computer by usb or to a usb charger.

If your tablet is only equipped with a usb port and that is broken, it will need a repair before the battery can be charged.

How do I connect the Irulu keyboard to my tablet, besides by plugging the mini usb into the port on the side? Because my tablet doesn't recognize, that it is even plugged in.

first of all, make sure that your tablet has an On the go USB port or data port if not, it can only be used to charge. If you connect our tablet to a computer usb port, and your computer recognises it, then you have a data port.

If you plug in a usb memory stick, and your computer can not read it, it does not have a USB to go port.
Also, some Cable adapters are On the Go wired, and may not work properly.
It may also be that the USB port is not providing enough power from the tablet to the keyboard. In that case, buy a split power usb cable, and plug the red (power only) into a usb charger or powered usb hub.

Charging port not working. How can I fix it

If it's a mini-USB charging port you could have damaged contacts on either your USB cable or the USB port itself. You should try another cable first hoping that it's only a damaged cable. If the new cable doesn't do it then it's probably the USB port itself. If that's the case, you probably have to take or send it in for repair.

We need a plug

The charging on the tablet depends on the model.
Most including the Kocaso 776 charge via the micro USB port, and this is a standard USB port.
So all you do is purchase a micro USB to standard USB cable and plug it into the standard USB port on the charger or a PC.

Why my computer can't detect my galaxy tab

There's several things that could be the cause here. I'm going to assume that you're plugging the tablet into the PCs USB port with the standard charging/data cable that came with your tablet.

Easy Solutions:
  1. You might have a bad cable. Try a different cable, if you have one.
  2. Your USB port might be bad - try plugging into a different USB port. If you're plugged into the front of the PC, try the ones on the back. Also try plugging a different device into the USB port that you were having trouble with - does the other device work in that port? If so, your USB port is OK.
  3. Go into the Settings app on your tablet. Select Storage and tap the menu (three dots in the upper right corner). Select USB Computer Connection from the menu. There will be two choices here: Media Device (MTP) and Camera (PTP). Try unchecking whatever one is checked and checking the other one. Unplug your tablet and plug it back into the PC.
More Challenging Solutions:
  1. You might not have the proper drivers for your PC to recognize your tablet. Samsung makes a software package for your PC to communicate with your PC called Kies. You can download Kies here: Download it and install it. Then plug your tablet into your PC and it should find it.
  2. There are other ways to transfer files between your PC and your tablet, some of them are really easy, some not so much. The easiest is the Dropbox app. Download the app from the Google Play store - it is free. Create a free account and sign in. Then on your PC go to and download their free Windows program. Install it and sign in with the same account info that you used on your tablet. This creates a shared space out on the Internet. Anything that you put in your dropbox folder will automatically get put in your dropbox folder on your PC. On your tablet you can look at what is in the dropbox folder and choose whether or not you want to copy it to your tablet. You can also upload files from your tablet to the dropbox folder (automatically putting them on your PC).
  3. Another way to transfer things between your tablet and your PC is the AirDroid app. You can download it from the Google Play store - it is free. When you use it on your tablet, it will give you a web address on your local WiFi. Go over to your PC and open a browser, go to that address and you can communicate directly with your tablet over WiFi. You can copy files, add and delete thigns, and all sorts of other functions. AirDroid is very useful.

Unable to install OS on Hard drive. Error PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable. PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM. Invalid partition table

When your computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, it tried to connect to a network-accessible "boot-server" via the Ethernet adapter.

However, if there's no cable connected to the computer's Ethernet port, you will get the "check the cable" error-message.

So, your real problem is "invalid partition table", which means that the very first record on the disk-drive is either missing or corrupt.
That first record contains the "partition table", which lists the size of the hard-drive, and the size of each partition (usually only one) on the hard-drive.

So, you'll need to buy an adapter that has a USB-plug on one end, and a connector for your "SATA" or "IDE" hard-drive at the other end.

Remove the hard-drive from your computer, attach it to the connector, and plug-in the USB connector to a USB port on another computer, and then use software to delete and then reconstruct the partition table.

Or, the hard-drive is failing, and must be replaced (maybe under warranty???).
