Probably broke a solder point. Need to take in for repair, or find a friend who is an electrician.

Note: Needs to use low heat solder.

I have a diamond mp3 hooked up to me laptop but windows media does not detect it. What do I need?


Unrecognized devices often mean hat the drivers are not installed or available in Window. Try installing them if you have a CD.
There are more possible problems with unrecognized USB devices, so I suggest you have a look here if the drivers don't solve the issue.

Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manage > Universal Serial Bus Controllers > Delete or uninstall any usb root hubs. You may notice your mouse may stop working after this. Try a reboot and then windows should redetect usb devices. You may have to delete some other usb root hubs again if this does not work the first time.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.

It can be quite frustrating. I've heard that older computers are more likely to have the USB device not recognized message.

Cannot connect a hp psc 2410 printer to dell inspiron 1000 laptop


Try a powered USB hub, this will boost the power in the USB curcuit.
Also ensure that in Device Manager, USB Root HUB, Power Management tab, that the option to let windows turn off the device is unchecked.
