The ipod is not detected in my pc but it is charging.what is the problem give me reply as early as possible


Unplug your USB cable from the hub, and plug it directly into the computer itself. That is #1 problem, ipods and iPhones don't like to work through USB hubs.

Alternatively, make sure that your charging cable is also a data cable. Some aftermarket cables for iPod and iPhone, especially those packaged with cig. lighter chargers, are charge only, and won't pass data.

If the same cable work on another computer, then you need to take a look at the USB functionality on the computer that is having issues.

That fast enough?

How To Refresh and reinstall USB Ports Of Your Computer Hello there, the other day i tried refreshing and reinstalling the USB ports on my PC, as some of my connecting devices are not recognized. I present the detailed procedure on refreshing the USB ports.
Let’s go!!

Here are the steps to refresh/reinstall/uninstalling the USB ports on the computer.

The USB port needs to be refreshed to make sure that no other device has captured the USB port of the computer. The Mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk; what ever it may be.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager Button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk...USB hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main USB devices at the rear end USB port. As they require more power to initiate.


The above steps are for XP operating system. When coming to the matter of Vista, please note the changes below:
===========================
1) Right-click Computer icon from the desktop , and then click Properties to open the System Properties window, and then select the Device Manager tab.

2) Click the Plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers/Root hub.

3) Click the USB Composite Device entry to highlight it, and then click Remove. If a screen appears to confirm the deletion, confirm the deletion.

4) Disconnect the USB cable to the all-in-one, wait a couple seconds, and then reconnect the cable. This should restart Windows device detection (Plug and Play).

5) A New Hardware found screen may appear, click next through all of the screens that appear for the Wizard to install the USB Composite Device. Click Finish once the wizard completes.

My front usb ports on my computer suddenly stopped working. I do have vista, and I swear the problem arose after an update. I can plug my ipod into them, and it charges my ipod, but it does not open...


Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore and back your computer's date to some time before you installed this update. You will then know if the update actually caused the problem.

My USB ports no longer detect devices when plugged in.


Updating, or in some cases reinstalling, the drivers for your computer's USB interface should resolve this issue.
Locate the iPod in Device Manager
  1. Connect iPod to the computer.
  2. Quit iTunes if it launches.
  3. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  4. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
  5. Double click the Computer Management shortcut.
  6. In the left column, click on Device Manager.
  7. In the right column, click the plus (+) icon next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
  8. Locate the iPod in this list. In some cases one of the entries will have "iPod" in its name. If no such entries are present, the iPod is most likely represented by "USB Mass Storage Device."
  9. Note: A red "X" appearing next to the iPod's entry in Device Manager indicates this device is disabled. To enable this device, right-click its entry in Device Manager and choose Enable from the shortcut menu.
  10. Update the USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Update Driver from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the Hardware Update Wizard that appears, select "Yes, this time only" to allow Windows to connect to the Windows Update Website. Click Next.
    3. Select "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows searches for updated drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, continue with step #4.
    4. Click Back.
    5. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next.
    6. Select "Search for the best driver in these locations."
    7. Select "Include this location in the search" and type the following in the field below: C:\Windows\INF
  11. Click Next. Windows searches this location for drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, you must reinstall the USB drivers as shown below.
  12. Note: During installation, if a message appears stating that the software you are installing "has not passed Windows Logo testing" click Continue Anyway to continue installing the drivers.
  13. Reinstall USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the resulting dialog box, click OK.
    3. In the Device Manager window, right-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and choose Scan for hardware changes from the shortcut menu.
    4. Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod. Regards...

ACER Veriton 5600GT how to turn off USB power after shutdown


Not likely.
What you have is power over USB which is good because it allows the hard drive to get enough power to run without a seperate power cord. This is also usefull for IPODS and other media that Charge through a USB. It means you can turn your computer off and still charge something.

If its an external hard drive, its meant to be removed. You can right click and disconnect it from the bottom right and then remove it safely.

You may have a port that doesnt provide power when turned off, maybe a front USB port, you could plug it in there.

There most likely isnt a way to change any jumpers unless your system board instructions specify that you can and how to. Dont go tinkering around because if you put jumpers on the wrong spot, you can blow some of the small components on the board.

This would render the USB completely useless.

If you want a permanent extar HDD for back up, just get a new IDE for the internal, There cheep these days. you can get a 250 gig IDE for under $60.00

Flash drive ports on teh fron wont work on pc


If your system is USB 1 rather than USB 2 then some flash drives will not work. Not all usb 2 flashdrives are backwards compatible. My kids flasdrives will only work on my usb2 ports & will not work at all on my wife's computer which has the older usb 1 ports.

Trouble with Kensington Pocket Mini Hub USB 2.0 and Apple iPod.


I believe the reason you have this problem is your trying to run too many USB items than your pc can handle at the same time. Since you only have 1 USB port on your pc it may not have enough power to run an iPod and your DSL at the same time.
