The right driver is important, don' t just rely on the Microsoft driver that might automatically be used. CHeck for a specific driver on the site on the manufacturer.

Not recognice by usb hard


A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.

The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.


Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.


If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.


Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).

The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.


If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.

Ensure that the data cable is working properly.


Try another USB cable if you have one available.

Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.

Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.


Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.

If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.


If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.


Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."


For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."


Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."


If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.


The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.

If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.


Hope this helps

I have loaded USB 2.0 Driver but System could not detect that USB 2.0 Port when I connect USB 2.0 device to all six USB Port. I am having DG31PR Motherboard. I checked in BIOS setup. High speed port enable...


You have not mention what Operating system is on your PC.

For Windows OS XP, you just have to install at least XP Service Pack 2 or higher... and the USB 2.0 ports will function. For Vista & Win 7 OS, the USB 2.0 drivers is in the Operating System when you install Windows.

Hope it helps.

System is not detecting


To determine if your system is detecting the USB drive or not
Windows XP Right click "My Computer" >> Properties >> Hardware Tab >> Device Manager
Windows Vista/7 Right click "Computer" >> Properties >> Device Manager
If your USB drive is not detected at all either the drive is bad or the usb port is bad, I would try another USB port to rule out the issue being a port
If you see a ? or ! then your operating system had trouble installing a driver for it uninstalling and reinstalling the driver should resolve the issue
Please comment if you need further assistance or clarification
Thanks

The flash drive purchased doesnot work when pjugged into the usb port on my desk top but it work on my lap top? How do I get it to work on my desk top


Hello claponte

FIRST, THE HARDWARE SIDE:
If you just purchased your flash drive, then it is using the USB 2.0 (high speed) standard. Prior to that were USB version 1.1 and, before that, USB 1.0 standards.

USB 2.0 devices will still work when plugged into USB 1.1 ports - just at a reduced speed)

However, computers w/ USB 1.0 ports cannot properly detect USB 2.0 devices. On those computers, you'd need to install a USB 2.0 expansion card in order to add USB 2.0 functionality to the computer.

SECOND, THE SOFTWARE (DRIVERS) SIDE:
On the software side, USB devices are "plug-and-play" on Windows XP & Vista systems. This means they do not require special drivers or installation for them to work properly. The drivers needed for them to operate are already built into the operating system.

However on operating systems prior to Windows XP (Windows ME, Windows 98SE, Windows 98...) drivers are needed for USB devices to be detected properly.

These are two possible reasons why your flash drives don't work on your desktop computer.
(01) The computer is an older one using USB 1.0 technology
(02) The operating system is pre-Windows XP

Another possibility is (if your computer USB ports are at least 1.1 standard and your operating system is at least Windows XP) there is an issue w/ the USB ports on your desktop computer. This could be a hardware or a software issue still.

Please, let us know if that's the case and we'll help you to trouble-shoot the issue.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you

Sync Manager Problme with Vista with LG CU500


The problem is a driver issue. It is strictly a LG/Verizon problem, and not Windows. What you should is hook up your phone your computer LG USB cable and using the Music Essentials CD-ROM.

Install the latest version of BitPim where  you can find at http://www.bitpim.org/ . 
"I hooked up my phone to my computer via the USB cable, and opened BitPim. Much to my dismay, bitpim did not find the COM for the LG Modem".

However, Vista popped up the window in the taskbar telling me that new hardware was detected but could not be installed. I went to Start > Search > Device Manager
Once the Device Manager is opened up, you should see an unknown hardware profile for the USB cable/phone. In my case, Vista seemed to recognize the fact that it was a LG USB Modem, but didn't have the driver. Anyway, right click on the unknown driver and select "update driver software." Surprisingly, Vista will tell you it found a driver. Unfortunately, when when you go to install the driver 2 new unknown drivers will appear.

To fix the 2 unknown drivers, all you have to do is insert the VCAST Music Essentials disk into your disk drive, and point Windows in the direction of the files for the drivers on the VCast Music Essentials CD (in my case, the D: drive).

Windows finished the install, and from their BitPim recognized the cable on COM5.
That should work.
