Question about SkyGolf SkyCaddie Handheld GPS Unit
I have a Skycaddie SG3 and when I try to connect to my laptop I receive a USB error stating that the device has not been recognized by windows. I've tried to connect this to 3 different computers with the same results
Be sure the cable that connects to the back of the SkyCaddie is plugged in correctly and that is going straight down the back of the SkyCaddie over the logo. The cable should not be coming out of the top of the device then down, that will cause the error you are getting. If this is NOT the issue or the resolution, then unfortunately, anytime a device reads USB not recognized or malfunctioned, you will need to send the device in for a repair, IT IS an internal issue.

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.
Well, Printer Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook. You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector). The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.
Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.
Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.
I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.
