Good day. I have a memorex ultratravel drive USB 2.0 160GB. Everytime I connect to any computer I get the message:The pc does not recognize the USB device code 43. Please let me know what i can do. thanks...


Code 43 is the death code - the pc simply cannot communicate with the attached device because the device is not working. This means that the Memorex is dead . Since the electronics board inside it cannot be repaired or replaced it means that yo must buy a new one.

You should give Test Disk a try. It's a little complicated at first but if you read the tutorial it's easy.

I have a brand new 1 gb memorex travel drive that I'm suppoed to go to memorex.com to download the drivers. It's not available onlnioe anymore and memorex is tying to send it to me via email but the file...


Windows XP and Windows Vista and Windows 7 should have "built-in" support for this Memorex device. Just connect it to a USB-port, and see if it is recognized -- it should be!

Some pc's don't recognize my travel drive


I have a USB hard drive, and I have noticed that on some systems the current Draw on the USB port is too high for systems with unpowered / Low power USB ports, and therefore it doesn't work for that system,

this issue can be bypassed by using a "powered" USB hub

Device is detected, but I can't add music, because it undetects


Problem Solved: My MMP8567 screen read ''boot error shutting down''.
Everytime I plugged it in to the computer the computer would find it but then it would disappear almost immediately.
I downloaded the Updater program from Memorex but it couldn't find the player.
The directions from Memorex said ''Hold down the play button and plug in usb cable.'' Another set of Memorex directions said, ''Hold down the power button and plug in usb cable.'' Neither worked for me.
SOLUTION: I finally held down the LOCK/UNLOCK button and plugged in the usb cable. My computer found the player immediately and a software driver window popped up asking for a driver. I let windows search the internet and it found and installed the driver. The driver it was looking for was: ''player recover device class driver'' After windows confirmed it recognized my mp3 player I started up the Firmware update program and was able to update the player.
I tried to be clear and detailed. Good Luck ;-)

I plugged my Memorex TravelDrive into my computer. It has always worked perfectly. This time I got the message that the USB device was not recognized and I can't get into my files.


THE FOLLOWING IS COURTESY OF MICROSOFT Help and Support

When you plug a USB device into a Windows XP-based computer immediately after the computer comes out of standby (S3) or hibernate (S4), the computer may not recognize the USB device. When this issue occurs, the USB device may be listed in Device Manager as an unknown device, and you may receive the following warning message:
Unrecognized device has been found.

This issue occurs because, when the computer comes out of S3 or S4, there is a five- to ten-second period when the selective suspend feature of the USB driver will interfere with detection of a new USB device connection. The time period depends on several factors. This includes the following factors:• Host controller hardware
• Attached hubs
• Attached devices
• USB driver versions
• Support for USB 2.0
• Additional system hardware or configurations that may change the timing
There may be other reasons that a USB device is not detected

Method 1
loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); After the computer comes out of S3 or S4, wait five to ten seconds before you plug the USB device into the computer or hub.

Method 2
After the computer comes out of S3 or S4, unplug the USB device, and then plug the device back into the computer or hub.

Method 3
Use the Device Manager to scan for new hardware. Follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type Devmgmt.msc, and then click OK..
2. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes. This causes Windows to recognize new devices.
3. Close Device Manager and Control Panel.

Method 4
Disable power management of the USB hub.
Note If you perform the following procedure, you may also reduce the battery life on a portable computer.
To disable power management on the USB hub, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
2. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed: a. Right-click the USB Root Hub, and then click Properties.
b. Click the Power Management tab.
c. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

Try restarting the computer with the device in. Sometimes if you clear the memory that might help (stating the machine without memory then put it back and start it again).

"USB Device Not Recognized" - any usb device


1-Make sure you are using XP SP2. You probably are but just in case....

2-Unplug all USB devices

3-Uninstall any software for the devices you just unplugged

4-Reboot into safe mode and open the device manager. Make sure to choose the show hidden devices option

Note: Follow the order of removal exactly and this MUST be done in safe mode only!

5-Remove any entries for USB peripherals like scanners and printers

6-Remove any entries for HID devices or Combp USB devices

7-Remove all USB root hub entries

8-Remove all USB host controller entries

9-Reboot to normal mode, let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive.

If this didn't work then repeat steps 1-8.
Staying in safe mode, right click in the device manager and scan for hardware changes. Let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive again.

Also when doing any of this try and get a hold of another thumb drive and try it instead of yours. Your thumb drive could be the source of the trouble. We had similar issues we tracked down to a bad batch of Memorex thumb drives.
