Hi,

Even though it is possible that your USB hard driveis corrupt, but

before you finally conclude, try out these few troubleshooting

steps.

First of all, it is possible that the USB port that you are using is a

USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to

power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a

USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case

you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in

an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy

a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Meanwhile, before you try out the second option, test the drive on

a friend's system, that you are sure has a very good system, with

USB 2.0 port.

If after trying out all these, the USB Drive still doesn't work, then

I'm afraid, the drive might have been bad/spoilt.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem and let me know how it

goes

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you for using Fixya

Goodluck

If the problem disappears when you move the computer back to the previous location, it's most likely something in the new location that is causing the problem. Could be a bad power outlet or some heavy duty electrical interference.

The dvd drive on dell inspirion 1525 wont open...when I go to it under computer it says please insert dics and then say failed to eject...what do we do??????????


The loading tray has a pin hole on the front door, get a fine screwdriver or needle and push it in until you hear a click the tray should pop open, pull it all the way out, look under the tray for a small black loading belt make sure it is snug tight. If the DVD driver fails to work at this point, replace the entire assembly.

Visioneer OneTouch 5820 USB for windows 7


ok guys here is the fix for vist and or windows 7 to make your scanners work
1. put your cd in the drive don't let it autorun

2. goto my computer then right click the driver that has your install disk in it

3. click open

4. then fine the drivers folder and open it

4. the file you see should be your driver for your scanner the number on this file should be the modle # of your scanner

5. right click that file then click run as adm. allow any and all pop up's

6. after the install is done restart your computer

7.after the computer reboots go back to my computer and open the driver that has you install disk and open it (do not do auto open) like for this file start32.exe and right click it then click run as adm. allow any and all pop up's (you may see something saying in any one of the steps that the driver or software u are trying to load dose not have a signature always click ok, allow, or indtall this sofe ware is old so it dose not have a signature)

8. after the install is done reboot your computer goto control panle and open it look for systems and open it goto device manager open it then look for your scanner it should not be hard to fine it's the one marked with the yellow flag

9. right that file then goto properties then click on it then goto update driver ( do not click driver update software in the same menu with properties) another menu will open up click on update driver it's just below the driver details box

10. now windows will update your driver when done restart your computer and y should be good to go

You need to look back on the driver settings for the scan options. Compare the driver options on the computer that is working fine and note any difference and correct it accordingly.

Lost instructions how do i get the pics off the camera


Ok, I looked all over for the instructions. But there aren't any. I can give you a generic method, but it will only work if you have the driver installed. I'm going to assume you do.

Turn the camera off (if it in fact has an off button).
Plug the camera into your pc.
Turn the camera back on.
Go to My Computer and look for it in the removeable drives.
If it's there, double click on the drive and drill until you find your pics.

Good Luck!
