Often when this happens, the drive was removed without "Safely Remove Hardware" . Try different computers (Operating Systems) and when recognized, Use the "Safely Remove Hardware" key. Then try it on your laptop.
Since it prints from your laptop and not your desktop, it sounds like it's either printer driver or the Wi-Fi connection. Does your desktop computer see/recognize the printer? If not, then it is something to do with the wireless connection on your desktop computer. If it does recognize it, then it is likely the driver (program software) on your desktop that tells is how to communicate with your printer. In that case, you should go to "device manager" by right-clicking on your computer icon or accessing it through the control panel. There should be an option to update your driver. In this case, something with your computer (such as a OS - Operating System update) may have occurred which caused the desktop software (which tells it how to work) to stop working. I hope that makes sense. Take care and good luck!
Its maybe the printer is not compatible with your computer, will to try several steps to determine a solution, 1 try another USB to see if it recognizes it, 2 download and install the driver from the printer manufacturer 3 try another USB device into the same USB port to see if it recognizes it if it does then the USB on your computer works as it should, if it does then the fault is either software or the printer compatibility. 4 follow step 2 if the problem persist then the answer is your printer is not compatible and will need to order one that works for your system.
If your driver are ok then is your computer is in same WORKGROUP like other are(If you are in LAN connection and sharing internet with other). was there any IP address in your computer before you formatted it? make it confirm and if IP was there then give back the IP to tour connection.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
The Canon is trying to connect to a wireless router or wireless access point which is connected to your computer network. Your Sprint 3g device is a wireless broadband device for Internet connection and cannot connect to the Canon using this device. You need a wireless card that connects to the wireless router or wireless access point. Otherwise you can connect to your printer using a printer cable.
Try to change the USB connection type in the camera menu. There are several types like Mass storage, Pict. bridge, and the one you need is most likely PTP. Anyway, try all of those and maybe it will work. That is the most common problem when connecting cameras to Vista based systems.
hey im the same person who just posted above. i went to WD's website, and it said unplug the hard drive from the computer, and unplug it from the power source. then plug it into the power outlet, wait for it to spin up, then plug it in via USB/Firewire, whatever. it worked for me, so hopefully it will work for you.
