Try refreshing the USB's. First, remove all USB's from your sytem (unplug them).

Click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM. Click on HARDWARE, DEVICE MANAGER. Expand the heading UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. Delete all the usb items. In that same window, go to the very top level (computer name-In the picture, my computer is called LUCY), right click, and click SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. Once done, try connecting your USB devices.

I'm trying to sync an apple ipod shuffle 4th generation to my windows xp pc. The famous USB device not recognized thing pops up. What do i need to do so i can use and sync my ipod.

Shutdown Windows.
Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC power cord.
Reconnect the AC power cord.
Restart the PC.
This will eliminate many "intermittent" problems.

Now, connect some other USB device (mouse? keyboard? memory-stick?) into the USB port, to confirm that the USB port is working, at least for some USB device.

Now, connect the iPod to one of the USB ports.
If it is not recognized, connect the iPod to a different USB port.

This should work.

Try restarting the iPod and connect it again. If it doesn't recognize it try it on another PC, if it still isn't detected it is the iPod. Buying a Mac wouldn't help nor hurt the situation, it would just be an expenditure.

My transcend 2 GB pen drive is not detected in windows xp?please reply me how i solve this problem.

Try connecting your pendrive in some other computer and if not working in different machines also, then the problem is with your pen drive. If genuine transcend pen drive, then claim it under warranty to get the new one.

If working in other computers but not with your computer, then try connecting the drive to your computer via the USB ports directly available behind your computer as this may fix the issues with USB extension cables and usb spliters, if any

I hope this is helpful to you

Problem with iPod syncing up to Windows XP SP3

Hi there.

Try re-installing/updating iTunes, also, make sure that you have run Microsoft Update and have all the latest updates. With regards to your new drive, download and install the chipset drivers for your motherboard.

If you can tell me what motherboard/system you have, I can look and post the link for you.

Hope that helps.

Hi I have a 2gb, transcend usb drive jf v30, i need a usb driver for it as i have a win98 operating system, which website should i go to install it

The only way to find out is from the manufacturers website:

USB support is tough on Windows 98. It doesn't run as a plug play system.
If you can find a way a way to upgrade your computer to Windows XP, that should solve the problem.

W98SE Driver for Kingston 1.0Gb DataTraveller Flash Drive

The people at your local computer shop are wrong but, Windows 98 should at least recognize the USB thumb-drive and ask for drivers.
I would remove all the USB Controllers from within Device Manager and restart; allow Windows upon restart to reload the USB Controllers; then plug in the drive and see if Windows at least recognizes and then install drivers.
It seems only the DTI/XX, KUSBDTE/XX, and DTII/XX support Windows 98.
