Question about Computers & Internet
If the unit was being recognized before and just recently failed, then it could possibly be a failure on the USB port of your laptop. try updating your driver(s). Depending on your OS (XP or Vista), you may need to check for any updates specifically for the USB.
Incidentally, some malwares and/or viruses have been known to cause similar types of faults so a virus scan would also be in order. You can also try an online virus scanner other than what your systen has. Additionally, try downloading a free copy of Ad-Aware and likewise run a full scan.
Other than the above, you may need to do a clean fresh re-install of the software.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
