Do you have installed the original driver???

if yess soo :

Possibilities:
1) One of your USB devices have faulted, or is causing a resource conflict (or similar)
-- Remove all USB devices, and reboot.
2) Your USB chip/ports have been damaged.
-- Find a spare HardDisk or bacjup your data and re-install Windows and see how that goes.
3) Your Power Supply Unit (PSU) isnt supplying enough power to your PC (usually caused by a Video card upgrade). Try a more powerful PSU ... 400watts should do the trick
4) Bad memory (RAM) can cause wierd problems. run memtest for an hour to make sure your memory is ok





It seems that many people are still getting the 'USB Device not Recognized' problem from time to time. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.
Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.
In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.
Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;
HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Usb
Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.
A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying .
Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.
Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;
1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)
2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.
3. USB Root Hub(s)
4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)
Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.
Hopefully some of this may be of help, let us know how you get on.

How do i connect the camera so i get live feed to my laptop. There are only USB inputs on the laptop.


You can't do this. You should attach the camera to the telescope, use the telescope focus wheels to focus after switching on Live View on the camera. You can also use the magnification 5x, 10x function.

When I connect My Samsung VP-D77i Camcorder to my Laptop I always get a message saying "cant open camera device". My Laptop does not have a fire wire port but only with USB ports. It has Windows 7 Pre


First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

Hi
Different cameras have different cords which connect to your laptop USB. You can connect to your laptop using the cord or you can also remove the memory card and insert it in the card reader to access the memory card.

Where to place 2.0 gb chip in tower to download pictures to computer


On a laptop you have a built-in card reader. But on a desktop you must have an external card attached to a USB port. If you want to download pics from the card then 1. If it is in a camera already, you attach the camera to the computer via the USB port and from My Computer access this camera and copy/paste the pics that you want. OR 2. Buy a card reader for your type of card and attach it to the computer via the USB port.

When i attach the cable to the laptop nothing


Hi..

Do you install the driver of your camera. You need to install the driver of your camera. If the driver are already installed but the same things happen try to use the other USB port of your laptop. Use also another USB cable if do you have other one.

major problem with this camer on acers, try this it works for most people, although only if it's the 225 degree rotating camera:-

open the camera software programme as if you were activating the camera, turn the camera to face the back, then back to the front again, now keep clicking the camera acivation icon until it will finally attach itself to the software again and the green light should come on.
