Imation atom usb driver vista

I have an imation atom usb stick 4Gb and vista can't install the drivers for it.
After trying many times the closest I got is this error message

"Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device

Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.

The system cannot find the file specified."

What can I do?

Thank you.

I need driver for imation apollo external HDD, where could i find free driver for this?


External Hard Drives generally do not need drivers. If the hard drive came with 2 usbs, then plug them both in. Your drive maay require more power to work properly. Again you may need two USB port to power it as 1 single USB does not carry that much power with it.

Sir ! when i atteched pendrive from usb port in hp530 laptop give error usb unreconizable


This can happen if the proper driver for this device is not installed or that the USB stick is damaged. If proper driver is not installed go to control panel-hardware-device manager & locate the device and update/reinstall the driver. If it still does not work plug your USB stick on any other computer & if it works then format it once & try again on your laptop.

Im assuming its a new machine and when you first booted Vista failed. When you boot up, press the F10 key. This will take you to a menu to start your Acer machine from the begining. It takes a while for the first complete boot. I hope this answers your question. If not, post back and we'll diagnose your problem again. Best of luck!

You do not need any drivers in windows for these drives if you are using XP/Vista. These are generic volumes. Try deleting any mention of the driver in device manager and let windows install it automatically. This sounds a lot more that your pen drive is dead. Time for a new one. Can you borrow a friends and plug it in to test the USB port is ok?
