Have E Machine ET1161-05 trying to install Kodak ESP6150 computer does not find printer


While installing the printer just switch off the printer and try to install the printer driver completely, When the software will ask you to connect the printer then only switch on the printer. If this way still you are getting the same problem then connect the printer in other usb port or use different USB cable

I plugged my brand new mp3 player into the usb port of my laptop and I am getting error messages and the driver wont install


Hi sobaokokorom,

I see that your MP3 player will not work or be detected b your Laptop.

I will be more than glad to help you regarding your concern, If I may ask have your tried updadting your windows on your computer maybe, you just need to update JAVA, Flash plarer on your windows, have you also updated windows recently on your machine.

I am asking if your machine is updated since the error your mentioned is saying that it is unable to install driver, error as such is possible that it cannot install due to update reasons but if the error states that cannot install driver device not detected or a USB device connected on your machine has malfunctioned then most probably there is something wrong with you MP3 player, maybe you can try reformattgin your MP3 plater back to defaults if possible but first you need to see if your player will work on another computer before resetting it to defaults...

try updating you machine as well then check if the system will detect your MP3 player.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

My computer does not detect the usb mobile for the phone. it tell me there are no driver


Hello,
There can be many reasons for not detecting USB mobile to the computer. It can be off driver problem.Even if you have installed driver you need to look whether its capable of windows you are having. If the particular driver doesn't support your windows it shows no driver or not installed properly. So while selecting driver you should install according to the windows you are using.
Secondly you need to look whether your USB port is working or not. In other cases some phones have their own softwares to connect to PC or Laptop. So in that you need to have that mobile software installed in you Computer EX: NOKIA PC SUITE for Nokia Phones.
Make sure you look all these things carefully .
Thanks.

Device is detected, but I can't add music, because it undetects


Problem Solved: My MMP8567 screen read ''boot error shutting down''.
Everytime I plugged it in to the computer the computer would find it but then it would disappear almost immediately.
I downloaded the Updater program from Memorex but it couldn't find the player.
The directions from Memorex said ''Hold down the play button and plug in usb cable.'' Another set of Memorex directions said, ''Hold down the power button and plug in usb cable.'' Neither worked for me.
SOLUTION: I finally held down the LOCK/UNLOCK button and plugged in the usb cable. My computer found the player immediately and a software driver window popped up asking for a driver. I let windows search the internet and it found and installed the driver. The driver it was looking for was: ''player recover device class driver'' After windows confirmed it recognized my mp3 player I started up the Firmware update program and was able to update the player.
I tried to be clear and detailed. Good Luck ;-)

DRIVERS FOR IOMAGIC 250GB (WIN XP)


The I250HD35 is plug-and-play with Windows XP. That means that all of the drivers needed to run your hard drive are included in Windows.

If your computer is asking for drivers when you plug in your drive, one of two things is probably happening:

1) Windows XP doesn't know where to look for the right drivers

2) Your drive has malfunctioned

The easiest way to assess which of these is happening is to take your drive and plug it into another computer that is running Windows XP. If it is detected properly on the other machine, then your computer doesn't have the right drivers or is looking in the wrong place for them. If it doesn't, then I/O Magic will be happy to replace your drive if it is still within the warranty period

If it is detected properly on another Windows XP machine, then when it asks for drivers, make sure to point it to the WindowsINF directory. This is where the default drivers are located.

If your drive is not detected properly on the other computer, your drive is probably experiencing a hardware malfunction. Please visit the I/O Magic website at www.iomagic.com and click on Support for specific return information.

Have a nice day,
