Try updating the drivers for the docking stations. Even in commonly used items such as docking stations which can be used without drivers, if you go to the manufacturer's web site and download drivers or management software, you will find it works better.

Otherwise, try somone else's laptop with those docking stations to make sure it's not your latop causing the problem. If it doesn't work for them either, the docking station is broken and there is really nothing you can do about that short of paying more than it's worth for someone to change out the USB component of the docking station.

How do i connect my camera


It depends on the camera model. Most cameras come with either a docking station you put the camera on, and connect through USB to the desktop, or have an USB port - usually a mini-USB port - on the camera body, maybe covered by a panel or patch to keep it dust-free. Sometimes the panels are colored so that they're difficult to spot - Canon 990IS's for example are on the right side, around the lanyard hook, flush with the body and must be pried open with a fingernail.

If you have neither USB port nor docking station, the only way to connect the camera is to purchase the appropriate memory reader. For example if your camera records on a SD card, you need a SD reader. They cost usually less than US$20 and are quite straightforward to use.

Have a nice day

I can't get my Compac Evo N610 to reconize my docking station usb ports what do i do?


I have a solutions that might work, please for the love of god, next time give it as much detail as possible. Navigate to Start>run type:MSCONFIG. Enable everything unless you are absolutely sure you don't need it.
Right click on My Computer, click on properties. Go to the hardware tab at the top, click on device manager to see if there is a conflict.
Try a different port.
Try the hub on a different computer.
If your hub has a power input, now would be the best time to plug it in.
Plug directly into computer.
Make sure the device is plugged in securely, same goes for the devices plugged into it.
If that port is for power only and you plugged it in thinking it would work for data, please don't ask.
Any error messages?
If your computer can boot off a flash drive, Go to bios, test the port and the hub.
