My computer does not recognise simpletech 250GB HDD drive when connected. The lights glow only. Earlier I had used this on my TV. Could it be that the system got corrupted


Buy an external USB hub that has an AC power adapter.
Your computer is not providing enough power to spin up the drive.
A self powered hub will provide the necessary power. 7 Port USB 2 0 HUB AC Adapter Monoprice com

Battery not recognised/not charging


Turn the computer off, unplug it, take the battery out. Then hold the power button down for 10 - 15 seconds. Plug the ac adapter back in, but do not put the battery in yet. Boot the computer, then shut it back down. Put the battery back in then boot it again. It should recognize the system now.

When i plug my camcorder in to the computer via the usb its not recognised and the on screen menu tells me to plug in an ac adapter


Some camcorders require you to have the ac adapter plugged in to keep your camcorder on so that you wont loose any data if the camera dies during the transfer to computer process. You can check the Panasonic website for up to date drivers for the operating system you are using. I hope this helps.

Adding to ubuntu desktop


it could be that power isn't sufficient on the USB connection. you might need to plug in your AC adapter.

Also this drive has both FireWire and USB ports on it.

To get it working, make sure that the AC adapter is supplying power, and that USB is connected correctly, then re-boot.

Ubuntu should recognize the drive.

Command line tools that may help are

lsusb

this shows which devices are connected via USB to your computer.

dmesg | less

will help you look for the drive's identification and recognition by the computer, providing information such as vendor strings, capacity, and device assignments.

Good luck.

Charger not recognised


Hi,

I believe this is a known problem, all you have to do is to Download and install the BIOS update on the support website support.dell.com . After installing the BIOS update and still the charger is not recognized, it only means the motherboard needs to be replaced as well as the ac adapter. If you are still covered by the warranty, call dell tech support and they will replace the motherboard and ac adapter.

Hope this helps.

AC adapter not recognised


Try charging the battery on one of the other dell's.
If the unit runs for any lengh of time, it is not the motherboard.
It could be the A/C adaptor jack on the side of the unit.

AC adapter power not enough for XP?


I use WINXP Pro and there is no problem. I can only offer the steps that I use for you to see if it makes any difference. Sometimes the sequence can be the answer.Try this twice, once with the battery in the adapter and once without the battery.
1. Power down PC.
2. Disconect camera from PC.
2. Power up PC.
2. Make sure the camera is off.
3. Remove battery from Camera.
4. Plug adapter into mains (with or without battery)
5. Plug camera into adapter.
6. Plug camera into PC with firewire.
7. Switch Camera on
