It is more like an inside electronic problem like;loose connections/failure in circuit board, make sure your power supply/source is earthed or earth the pc independently.Earth the pc thru a copper wire to a grounded metal object thru the screws and bolts at the back of your casing.

Does it matter which usb port I connect a printer cable to?


No problem as to which port you plug in, but make sure the Com port/RS-232/USB Port is enabled to detect the hardware. The device won't detect the hardware if you haven't made the changes in BIOS or port enabled in device manager (system properties>hardware). Hope this solves the query.

Need high speed usb driver


Unfortunately, being that you are using USB 1.1 ports, the high speed 2.0 devices cannot be used. They look the same, but are different hardwares. Even if you hook up a USB 2.0 hub to the USB 1.1 port, you are still stuck with USB 1.1 speed.

Sorry to break the bad news. Let me know if there are any more questions regarding this issue.

Comstar USB Drive disconnect and reconnects Plugged into usb port on Xp service pack 2


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.

Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

Usb ports


This can only mean on thing that the USB port on your computer is not properly working, what you can do here first is to run the setup CD for your motherboard so all the software including the driver for the USB port will be reinstall, if after that still not working the USB port of the computer is already bad...

When connecting any usb device to my computer the found new hardware wizard flashes on and off and gets no further.My computer is a Dell dimension running windows xp.


Unplug your USB devices
Go to Control Panel, Hardware, Device manager.
Delete all your USB ports, then restart the computer. XP will reinstall them. Then try your USB device.

Also, try the USB in the front and back, see if it is a connection problem on either one.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini- not connected! The single USB cable is in the Computer USB port.So far so good. When the second USB connector-with 2 cables is inserted to another Computer’s USB Port I start...


Quite strange.. I would suggest that maybe one of the usb ports is faulty.. Or ofcourse, one of the cables.. Or the usb port has been mis-wired inside the pc. That has been done before. Anyway, do you have access to 2 usb drives.. I mean micro/thumb drives? I'd test each port by itself first, to see if they operate correctly, then if they do, use the two usb drives in the two usb ports at the same time, to test read & write.. I guess there are other things you could try, like going to control panel, system, hardware, device manager & checking on the status of the usb ports. That may tell you something worthwhile. Whatever you do, test each port with the one single cable. Yer, this is a strange fault. Let me know how you go. Rgds,

With a modem or any hardware pluged into the usb port works ok from 5 - 10 munuets, then cuts out?


Try a different USB port. If it is the only one you have and it is going bad you may need to add a USB add on card in one of you empty pci slots, if you have one.
