Question about Sony UP DR100 Thermal Photo Printer

1 Answer

UP-DR100 cannot install port - error message "target device cannot be found"

Hi there,

i have just bought a second hand laptop on windows xp to run my sony up-dr100 printer. i use an adaptec usbxchange scsi-usb converter and the printer installs and works no problem on my other xp laptop.

however, on the newer laptop, everytime i try to install the port, i get the error message "target device cannot be found". when the printer is attached, windows finds the printer and installs it as a generic printer. this is the same on my other laptop and it works fine.

any ideas how i can get the newer laptop to install the port?

thanks

I have a question does the first lap top still use the usb cable? if not: 1) the cable is crappy  2) the printers ports my have malfunctioned
If it is: (common mistakes) 1) the second computer doesn't have drivers for the usb  - the first laptop may be running on an older service pack so it can bipass the cord. 2) you turned the computer on before the printer.

Sounds like you've downloaded the wrong driver. Make sure you download the driver that is for your operating system. If you purchased the lenovo and installed windows XP, what did it have on it when you purchased it, because all systems come with an operating system, unless you bought if from a jack leg or second hand where they wiped it.

USB Hardware Installation Problem


Try the following:

To fix the Error 13: Data is invalid problem, go to Start, Run... and type "REGEDT32.EXE" without the quotes to run the Registry Editor. Navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ENUM\PCI and you will see a number of keys of the form "VEN_xxxx", where xxxx are strings like "1102&DEV_0004&SUBSYS_00011103&REV_04".
Under each of these folders will be another folder with a long numerical name.
Open each folder and look for the "DeviceDesc" which matches the hardware you are trying to install.
HIGHLIGHT THE ENTRY "VEN_xxxx" for that device and select 'SECURITY'-'PERMISSIONS' FROM THE WINDOW TOP MENU and then tick "Allow" for "Full Control".
Close REGEDT32 and then continue with the installation of your device.
This wil lremove the Error 13: Data is invalid from your wnidows 2000 / 2K / XP system. Repeat this for each hardware device you get the Error 13: Data is invalid problem with.
