Spy pen not working


If you have a Spy Pen, sometimes it just appears to be either stuck with the light on, or dead and won't turn on. We wrote this report to show you some of the tricks we found to getting your it to work again.
1. Perform A Hard Reset
The majority of the time, just inserting the end of a paper clip in the opening below the status light on the back, and performing a hard reset, will get your Spy Pen working. Just bend a small paper clip end out, and insert straight into the opening. When you meet resistance, push lightly, and you can feel the reset button depressed.
Make sure it goes straight in, and not at an angle, or you could damage some of the components inside. Let go and try to turn it on.
2. Rule Out The USB Cable
If you are using a USB cable to either connect the Spy Pen to your computer, or to the 110V wall charger adapter, one day the cable will fail. If you use the USB cable because you can't connect the pen directly to the computer, try just plugging it directly into the computer.
Don't use a USB hub, as sometimes there is not enough power for the it; just connect it directly to the computers USB port. On some computers, use the USB port on the back, as front USB ports are sometimes weaker.
3. Rule Out The 110V Wall Charger
Just like the USB cable, the 110V wall charger adapter will also fail at some point; so if it does not seem to take a charge, try charging it for 3 hours in the computers USB port. If the status light is on while its charging, its getting electricity to charge the battery.
4. Put The Spy Pen Back In Video Mode
Several Spy Pens have switches to go to photo mode, or voice activation mode. If you move the switch to change modes, and you do not move it back to video mode, the computer will say it is not recognized. Try moving the switch back to the original position.
5. Erase & Reformat The Spy Pen
If the Spy Pen shows up as a removable drive on your PC, just right click on the icon and let go on "Format." Then check the "Quick Format" button, then hit OK. The drive will be erased, and reformatted. This usually takes care of any pens that make it this far.

How to fransfer data from laptop to pendrive


First turn on your computer.

Once your computer and operating system are up and running, then plug the USB pen drive into an empty USB slot on your laptop.

You may have to wait a few moments while your computer detects this device and automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it, which should take no more than 30 seconds or so.

Now just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or navigate there manually.

Look in the section titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE.

You should see your USB removable flash drive listed somewhere in that section. Just double click on its icon to open it up.

Now that the USB pen drive folder is open, you can just COPY and PASTE, or DRAG and DROP any document or file from your computer into that USB pen drive folder the same way you would transfer files to any other folder on your computer.

To copy files, just RIGHT mouse click on the file you want to copy, then select COPY from the drop down menu.

Then just RIGHT mouse click anywhere in the USB pen drive folder and select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.


Once all your files are copied, just close the USB pen drive folder.

Then click on the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Select the USB removable pen drive option and then wait for it to say that it is now safe to remove the USB pen drive.

Then just remove your USB pen drive by pulling it straight out of the computer's USB slot.

I hope that was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Mouse won't work in any usb slot on my a8jp.


Hello,

It may be the operating system has not recognized all the ports, if you operating system is now ok, go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager, and look to bottom of the list to USB Controllers.

Right click on them, and Uninstall all controllers and restart pc and see if all the ports are recognized and installed automatically.

Let me know if you need more information


Thanks

My both usb ports r not wrking n hangs when eithr card reader or pen drive is inserted bt works well when tata photon usb port or mouse port or key board port is inserted ?model- EMACHINES E275


Sounds like your laptop's USB ports are not capable of providing enough power to operate your card reader or pen drive. I suggest you buy an active USB hub (one with external power source, rather than the one which draws power from the laptop's USB port), & attach your card reader and/or pen drive to that USB hub.

The USB ports on my Toshiba A135 S2356 laptop are not working. I tried to use my printer and it says not connected. I bought a new cord but it still doesn't work. What should I do?


1. first check ur USB port using any other USB device, like pen drive, mouse, keyboard,etc.
if system detects that device, then ur USB port is OK!

2. if USB is OK, then the problem is with the 'Printer Driver' not the cord!

3. reinstall the printer driver!

4. update the driver!

5. if USB port is not working, then replace it!

if this helps, tell me.......

USB PEN DRIVE DATA TRANSFER PROBLEM , USB PORTS ARE NOT WORKING


Hi,

I assume you are inserting the pen drive and it doesn't get detected, correct?
If that is the case check the following:
1. Click "Start"
2. Click on "Run"
3. Type: powercfg.cpl
(press ENTER)

This will bring you to the power options.
4. Inside the “Power Options” on the plan that you have already selected click on the “Change Plan settings”
5. Click on “Change advanced power settings”
6. Scroll to “USB settings”
7. Open the two menus to reach “Settings”
8. Make sure the setting is “Disabled”
9. Click “Apply”
10. Click “OK”

Restart you machine and now try to use your pen drive again.

If this helps, plz come back and grade my answer J

Whenever I insert a new wireless mouse or any thumb drive into a USB port my Aspire asks for a driver. Previously the drivers for these devices installed automatically.


You probably turned it off by accident. Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware and choose "Windows Update" under "Drivers". Make sure either the first or second choice is selected.
