20 Most Recent Maxell Optical Travel Mouse With Retractable Cord - Green Questions & Answers

It may have a manufacturing defect. Have you tried it on another computer? If it works on another computer, see whether it works when connected to a different USB port on the laptop. If it does, then you may have a bad or damaged USB port on the laptop. If it works on another computer but still does not work on the laptop when connected through an alternate port, then see whether some other device will work when attached to the laptop's USB port. If neither the mouse nor the other device work when connected to a USB port, then you have a problem with the USB controller. If an alternate device does work when connected to the USB ports of the laptop, and if the mouse works when connected to another computer but does not work when connected to the laptop, then you have a software problem, and probably need to change the mouse driver in a control panel or setting in the operating system of your laptop.

It should be ready to use. You can name it. Perhaps you need to "format" the drive. Right-click the drive icon, and select "format"

No hard drive in the last 30 years needed drivers installed except for a short time when SATA hard drives first hit the market with Windows2000 and XP. I believe that is an external drive usually used for backups. You did not post your operating system, and if this is a new drive or one you have had for some time. So I will use Windows7 and assume this is a new purchase:>Try a different cable and a different USB port in case the cable or port went bad. It happens.>Plug the drive into a different computer. Is it recognized?>Go into Device Manager; is it listed?>Enter Control Panel/System & Security/Administrative Tools/Create & Format Hard Disk Partitions. Is your drive shown there? If it is, Right click on it, then click Mark Partition as Active. Does your computer see it now?If the answer is no to all the above, the drive probably failed.

see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image i have attached.
