Reinstalled windows, run sw cd of mouse, driver installed, only registry not changed . usb pendrive is also not detected , in win98& xp


I would suggest looking up the drivers on the manufacturers database but if you are using '98 and XP it is not likely.
USB pen drives were not invented in 1999 when XP was used.
Good luck!

MY TRANSCEND PENDRIVE NOT WORKING


Possible solutions:

*See if the USB port is enabled in bios.


*Goto Run> Services> Plug and play > Properties(Right Click)> See if it is set 'Automatic'.

*Try disabling USB2 in your bios, restart your operative system, and if still not detected your pen drive, try making OS detect new hardware or hardware changes (to crange usb2 drivers to usb1 drivers).

*If the above steps don't work for you, it might be a driver conflict. Try installing the Transcend USB driver from the manufacturer site, and see if that works for you.(Check in Device Manager, If there is a conflict after installing the new driver : Rollback Driver).

Please let me know the feedback on this.

I want to make my pendrive bootable to install window xp on my computer


download this file unetbootin-windows-471.exe, then you must have an ISO file of your windows xp, you can install ultraiso or any iso maker available on the web, insert your xp cd then make an iso image out of your xp cd... after having iso file for win xp, insert your pen drive (at least you have 1gig free space on your pen drive) then open unetbootin-windows-471.exe, under the disk image, locate your win xp iso file using the select disk image file button,. then just chose Usb Drive , and also on the drive chose the drive of the usb (check it on my computer and check the drive letter of your pen drive) then click ok... once successful transfer of image to the pen drive, restart pc then make your pen drive to be the 1st boot device

Toshiba 2 gig pen drive trans memory will not work on windows xp. No software came with drive.


You will need to locate and intall Windows XP "Mass Storage Device" drivers provided by Microsoft. Although it's a rarity when they are not already installed along with windows. I'd guess there is a deeper problem that I can't finger due to a lack of information. Find those drivers and go from there.

Flash drive


Hi phun2008

Did your question get answered? (I'm not sure what "no thanks" was in response to.)

Your flash drives should work fine w/ Windows XP. They should be detected by the operating system as mass storage devices - plug-n-play - w/ no need for drivers installtion, etc.

You may, however, experience detection issues w/ them on systems w/ older USB hardware. If the flash drives are USB 2.0 drives, they will not be detected on systems running USB 1.1 or earlier - regardless of the OS (operating system) installed.

On the other hand, if they are USB 1.1 flash drives, they should be detected fine on both older and newer USB ports as USB 2.0 is "backward compatible".


I hope this helps.

Ibm think centre a 30


Hi,
Windows XP has Drivers within the operating system to Install and setup USB Ports.
Here Are your options to Provide A Fix.
1: )The USB Port May Be Disconnected From The motherboard.
2:) The Device you are trying to Connect ( Pen-Drive ) May be faulty And Not Recognised By The Computer.

3:) The USB Cable Or Socket May Be Faulty.

Solution:- Try Connecting the Device To An Alternative ( different ) USB Socket On The PC.

Solution:- Try Connecting a Different Device to the USB Port. i.e MP3 player Or Digital Camera et,c.

Solution:- Check that the USB Header Cables ( from Motherboard To USB Ports ) Are connected Or incorrectly Connected.

Hard drive


You connected the usb had drive , and if it had an external power source it was on ???

ok right click on mycomputer
choose hardware
choose device manager
right click anything on the tree view and click scan for hardware changes.. Windows Xp should automatically detect and install it..

If you got vista, Right click computer and choose device manager,, right click anything on the tree view and click scan for hardware changes,, windows vista should install it automatically

IF THAT FAILS
verify your usb cable is good
check if your device requires an external power source and verify that it is connected..

connect it to another computer to see if it working

IF ALL THE ABOVE FAILS THE UNIT IS NO GOOD..,, you could try changing the harddrive inside it but i would have been wanting my money back or insurance since it could have been damaged while shipping..

I THINK I MAY HAVE COVERED IT ALL BUT IF I MISSED ANYTHING PLEASE POST IT AND I WILL TRY TO ASSIST
