USB cable problem when transferring

Have an Optio T10 and lately when I plug it into USB ports of multiple laptops it seems to not only not identify the camera but also "takes out" the laptop's USB ports. Why is it disabling laptop USB, thus rendering the ability to transfer pics by USB cable useless?

Could be a bent pin maybe?
I would just go out and buy a card reader so that you can read the memory card without the cord. and then you wont have to worry about it.
the card reader cost about 20 a new cord would be more.
Hope that helps,
Caleb

Device detector screen doesn't come om when I hook up camera to PC - camera settings are correct

This can be the camera, the cable or the port (PC). Try it in another port and then if nothing a different computer. If you leave the cable plugged in then sometimes the port doesn't wake up and show a device detected or the cable gets yanked stepped on etc and is damaged. The camera itself can have its port fail.

The majority of the time just changing the port "fixes" this. The next usual suspect is the cable. The data cable is fairly cheap and available at most stores think walmart for cheap and camera store for expensive replacements. If the camera is the problem, and you will only know for sure after trying the ports and possibly a new cable you have a couple of options. It isn't that common but does happen.One is getting the camera replaced or repaired (check for any warranty) or just remove the memory card and use a card reader on your desktop or laptop to transfer. This is actually quite a bit faster than the cable anyway.

The ports on the pc can go out but that can be a driver needing to be re-installed or an actual hardware issue. If the port works with other usb devices such as a printer etc then it isn't the port. You can buy a usb port card for under $20 if it is.

Why when i plug the MP3 player (YP-T10) into the computer, the computer says 'One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognise it'?

Here are a few things you can try:
1) Plug it in to other USB ports of your PC/laptop. The port might be faulty. 2) Replace the USB cable 3) Download the latest driver from Samsung's website here:

Hi,
Try camera in another USB port of laptop and also check it with another USB cable, if still problem not solved then plug camera in any other computer to make sure that it is problem of camera.
If camera still wont work in other computer then its USB port got defective, please use memory card reader to transfer pictures in computer, take out memory card from camera, put it in memory card reader and plug it in USB port of computer.
Thanks.

USB Device Not Recognized

Hi!

Try to plug it into other USB ports. If it still does not get detected, try to get a spare USB cable. Most of the time, its the bad cable which is causing such error.

Can't upload to my laptop!

Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C111893

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.


Your Camcorder does not supports a Wireless MIC. However, you can use a MIC with your Camcorder using the available Accessories Shoe port.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No source identified, no transfer

First. reboot the computer. If you leave your computer on all the time, an occasional reboot will often clear up an unresponsive program and "sharpen the teeth" so-to-speak. If you've done this, try going directly from USB cable to the camera. If it is still unresponsive, try plugging into a DIFFERENT USB port on the computer. If you've done all of this with the same cable, try using that cable and camera on a different computer. If it is unresponsive there, you may suspect the cable as being bad. Try a different cable. If you're still having issues, suspect that the USB port in the camera has gone bad and have a reputable repair shop take a look at it.

USB Connection problem Optio S4

have you turned the camera ON after connecting the cables? Next, does this USB port on the computer work with other USB devices such as memory sticks? My O555 has a USB socket that feels really "fragile" and I fear I will damage the socket with improper insertion (alignment seems touchy). I bought an external USB card reader and am really happy with that. You don't use up battery power transferring your files. Much better solution, IMO.
