That's a very strange problem...

I guess I would first remove all the USB devices with Safe Remove, then go into Device Manager, and update or reinstall the drivers. You could also delete the USB drivers, reboot, and let Windows rediscover them.

But I wonder if you're running an archiving program somewhere along the way which takes a directory and builds an "SFX" or self extracting file. Essentially, it compresses a folder, then creates an exe which uncompresses it. Does that sound familiar? If the USB device is not installed, do you still have these exe files? That would point to this kind of problem.

When you insert the device, windows should beep, and tell you a new device was found. Then on My Computer, it should appear (may take a minute or so). Then you should doubleclick to open the device.

If you're doing something other than that, or you have installed some kind of data compression program, your problem might be related to those actions.

If that doesn't help, please post additional information about messages you're getting.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

My pc cannot recognize my sciphone I68 dual sim via USB Cable


switch on the phone, then connect to usb. on your phone you get 3 options, choose mass storage. on your pc, open explorer, and navigate to external disks. there should be 2 new ones; the first one is the memory card, the second the internal memory of the phone.
the drivers are 'generic' so no need for a cd.
