OS is Windows XP.... I tried transferring usb ports but its still not working..
Its (the printer) still not being detected. I end up with the error message saying. "Hardware wasnt installed properly there may be problems using this device" .. The other error message is printer not responding.. Then when i let the computer detect the software it says software coudnt be found even with the installation disk...
Ok, also try another USB cable... the printer is not being recognized by the OS as a printer, it might be that the file usbprint.sys might be corrupted. Try to install the printer to another computer with the same OS and see if the OS recognizes it as a printer. Also use the same driver CD that you've used. This is just for isolation. If the printer is recognized by the computer and the drivers are installed correctly, then the problem might be the file mentioned above.

Hi there! If the E173 worked with your windows 7 then that means the E173 is working properly, try to check first if the PC specialist windows XP computer can detect the dongle if not then try to use a different USB port now if is detected but won't install try to find it in the drive go to my computer then look for the removable disk or the e173 then manually install it but if after trying different USB ports and the dongle is still not being detected then check if it is compatible with that computer or you can try to use another USB device to check if the ports are working properly.
You have to transfer them to your computer, which you can do one of two ways. You can use the usb cable to connect the camera to a usb port (windows will auto-detect your camera), or you can use a card reader to transfer your videos to the computer via the usb port (some printers these days have card readers on them, and windows will auto-detect them when you inset them with the printer on. Hope this helps.
One of the most common problems is the computer's operating system not recognizing the cable's drivers. This is most common with non-English operating systems. The quickest solution is to download the most recent driver. If the Easy Transfer Cable isn't working properly, you can try a few things to fix the problem. Make sure that you have installed the Easy Transfer Cable drivers on your old computer with the CD that is included in the cable package. If you did not do this, close Windows Easy Transfer, insert the CD that came with the Easy Transfer Cable into your old computer, and then follow the instructions on the screen. When this is complete, begin the transfer process again. USB ports might be another cause of the problem. When Windows Easy Transfer asks you to connect your computers with the Easy Transfer Cable, try plugging the cable into other USB ports on your computers. A more complex problem involves the F5U409 USB PDA Adapter (The USB/Serial Portable Adapter)not installing properly. If the driver is unzipping, but the unit is not working, you need to manually update the drivers. They should all unzip to a file called F5U109 in the C: drive of your computer. Point to this file through the Device Manager to update. Hope it helps.
You run MS Windows Update to download and install the latest OS updates. Your WD external HDD should be detected after OS update.
For non updates system, try to connect WD to the USB Port where it worked before. If you have 4 USB ports for instance, try to connect it to these ports one try at a time. Windows XP might have assigned one USB port for your device before when it was working just fine.
I had the same problem with my Canon HF S11 camcorder and found the solution was to connect the usb cable to the back usb port of my computer. Imagemixer then detected the camcorder to transfer videos. Hope this helps.
I have the same problem with the USB's not working. Suppliers say Motherboard problem. solved it by purchasing a PCMCIA to USB port. at least i now have 2 USB ports. you could probably get one with 3 ports.
