Then it sounds like a hard ware problem, especially when something just likes to work when it wants it's usually a hardware prob. also check to be sure the connections inside the laptop are secure and the usb connectors are secure.
i had an older computer about 3 years ago and 2 of the usb ports went bad, had to almost wiggle them in to get them to recognize.

My acer netbook wont boot up it says exiting NIC and something about the R0M then says no bootable divice insert boot disk but my labtop dont got a disc drive can u please help me fix it


It should have a USB socket. You will need to first of all try pressing F8 as the laptop is booting and enter the menu that allows you to recover your partition/ If it is corrupt or not available/damaged you will need to, on another PC with the same OS, make a USBdrive/flash drive bootable with your OS on it and boot from there, attempting to recover your old files.
Hope that helps but you may need a service centre/PC repairer to help you.

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.

Iomega external HDD not recognized as usb 2.0 (high-speed). PC thinks it's usb 1.1. Worked fine for more than a year.


Hello John7788,

Well this is either....

1. Software
2. Hardware (computer)
3. Hardware (HDD)

If its 1 then just simply re-install the drivers part for windows.

If its 2 then you would be better moving it to another usb socket as it may be just a fault on the single socket. If you don't have another socket then im sorry to tell you it means a trip to the repair shop or getting a new usb card to slot in to the motherboard.

If its 3...well...try the manufacturer for a repair.

Hope that helps you a little.

CANNOT GET EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE TO WORK ON LABTOP IT WANT EVEN REGISTER ON MY COMPUTER THE NAME OF THE HARDDRIVE IS IOMEGA 320GB


Is this a USB hard drive?
If so do any USB devices work?
Check Disk Manager (STart Menu - My Computer - right-click - Manage - DIsk Manager) - Can you see hard disk?
If so right cick on hard disk and set a drive letter for it in Disk Manager.

I plugged my usb cable into my camera and into my labtop but it wont put my pictures onto my labtop.


try plugging it in before you turn on the computer if this does not work goto my computer and see if it is showing up on the list if it is double click it and go from there if not then it might jsut be downloading the drivers for it so your computer knows it is there

Pleomax 6gb USB Drive No Longer Recognized by My Computers


It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.
