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 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.

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.

I uninstalled the driver from my transcen jf v30 4gb pendrive. Now windows says hardware not recognized.


Hi s8vysakh6 ,

I would suggest you to try the following steps:

Step 1: Run the fixit provided in the link below.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Tips-for-solving-problems-with-USB-devices
Check if the issue is resolved

Step 2: Connect the device to a different USB port\ and also connect the USB pen drive to another computer to eliminate issues with the pen drive itself.

If the issue persists,

Step 3: Reinstall USB controllers.


First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:

1. Click "Start", type in Device Manager the Search bar and press "Enter". Click Continue if necessary.

2. In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the "Host Controller", click "Uninstall" and click "OK".

3. Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".

Then, restart your computer and Windows vista will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.

Step 4: Update the motherboard driver to the latest version.
Note: Please check with the motherboard manufacturer before installing the driver.

If the issue persists, you may want to check with USB pen manufacturer for any unknown issues.

Hope this will help !

4 gb pendrive not detect


Your computer probably requires a special driver for this large type memory stick.

MANY older computers do. If the device came with a driver disk, then try to install a driver.

OFTEN it seems that there is a point at 2GB that older and cannot read above without special software driver. This also happens with amny devices like cameras, etc.

I have a 4GB PNY SDhc card in a Targus reader which supports hc cards, but my windows vista won't read it.


It is your windows vista. Vista had trouble with that, when it first came out. Try going to your computer manufactor's website and there should be a driver for vista.

IS there a driver for the PNY 4gb USB 2.0 black (and red) memory stick?


Hi

USB memory sticks do not need a driver, it comes with windows, unless you have a really old pc with windows 98 or similiar.

Driver for flash memory card for windows vista


Here is the solution for pen drive (you are must to have got acces to
Windows XP installed drive):
- copy usbstor.inf and usbstor.sys placed in WinXP folders (Windows\INF and
Windows\system32\drivers) on the some location on your disk.
- plug in device with Vista running
- when it is not recognized place to location where you saved these two
files above
- when you vista recognize mass storage device you will get information
about inproper INF section, and the second device will be unknown in your
device manager
- try to actualize driver for unknown device and point Vista to find driver
into your c:\windowsvistadir\ [x] with subdirectories

This problem may be because u have enable some security on ur memory stick if so try this driver
