Usb Stick Not Detecting

I recently got a new pc with windows 7 home premuim 64 bit.

When i plugged in my kingston usb stick/flash drive yesterday, the installing driver message came, but after about 5 minutes it still wasn't done, so i restarted the computer. When i plug in the usb stick now, the device sound comes, but it does not show the drive. The usb ports are working as they are detecting my mouse. Is there a way i can fix this?

I also have an another question which might or might not be related to this. I am getting a random error message: "windows explorer is not responding, explorer is restarting" when i am using the computer. e.g when i create a text or office file using right click-> new, the message might come. It also took a while (30 - 45 secs) for the files to appear the first couple of times i did it. Is this normal on a new computer? Would it be better to just restore to factory settings, as i haven't copied anything to this computer as yet.

Transferring Data From Other Pc Download Via Usb Stick

New pc with win7 ultimate. Purchased outlook 2007 from microsoft and delivered via e:mail link on my other office pc that has outlook 2002 running my e: mail, downloaded direct to a new 4 gig usb stick and copied to the new win7 pc via this stick, when trying to extract the program, the process starts but very quickly windows 7 reports an error basically saying not enough memory to complete the task.

This is the first s/w package put on this pc, it remains basically the way it was delivered. Has 1t/byte raid 1 drives with 12 g/byte memory. Cant seem to be able to contact microsoft or the s/w provider (digital river) to see if the s/w packaged is faulty or corrupted.

Sandisk U3 Micro Cruzer Usb Memory Stick Problem

Everything was working fine with this thumb drive until 2 days ago. I have not added any new programs and i do not have any viruses. I am running win7 64bit home ed. It recognizes the usb drive (e:) but then when i try to run autolaunch, it seems "grayed" out and does not work. I try running it as the administrator but it doesn't work. I've tried uninstalling the sandisk software on my dell inspirion 1545 laptop and reinstalling it. Either way, troubleshooting or re-install gets the same response-not detected and incompatible. It was working! Any ideas?

Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Running Usb Wireless Broadband Stick

Can i connect my xbox 360 to my laptop running usb wireless broadband stick and play on xbox live? I was wondering if it is at all possible to connect an xbox360 direct to a laptop that uses a telstra 21 wireless broadband usb stick to connect to internet.

I really like xbox and games and i find it hard to believe that in this day and age with 90% of the world using laptops that microsoft didn't create xbox with the capacity to connect through a laptop.
I have windows vista home premium on my toshiba laptop.

Stick On Disc Labels

Are they really not a good thing? Do they add so much thickness to the disc that some players just can't handle the added thickness to make it work/play well in a car disc player or for that matter a home dvd/cd player? The labeled discs i speak of are completely without lumps/bubbles/and are perfectly centered/no overhang/etc. I do have and occasionally use lightscribe - but find they are hard to read. Overall. Are they not recommended because of the added thickness?

Ram Stick Error - Bsods

I built myself a computer about 2 months ago and it has worked perfectly up until 2 days ago! A bsod appeared with the reason being "irlq_. " So i restarted the machine. Worked fine for another little while. Then another bsod but this time with the description "memory_management". Same thing again. Restarted. Then like 30 seconds after windows booting another bsod. But this time saying "atimdag.sys" so it restarted again. This time it freezes and the screen just turns into a load of white lines!

So anyway. Took the cables and components out and reseated everything but the same thing happens! Have deleted the partition and formatted it then reinstalled the os (windows 7 rc) about 3 times now. Still having the same problem!

Have updated the drivers and flashed the bios with the latest release. Still nothing!

The funny thing is when i take out one of the 2gb sticks. It works perfectly fine! I have run memtest and windows diagnostics on both sticks on there own. And together. In every slot config you can think of! When i first ran the tests, it did freeze on me a couple times. So not sure if it found an error or not. However have run the tests many times since on both and on there own and different configs. And no errors were found!

What is annoying however is that it was working for like 2 months before this? It was just a blank machine. I had not installed anything new. Not changed/updated anything. Nothing was different! I am getting so annoyed with myself and the machine.

Nvidia Chipset Installed With 1 Stick Memory Only

I have an abit nf2s  "405 geforce 6100" onbrd video set at 256mb enable if no other mother board and i have always had to install vista 32 with 1 stick and shut down install 2nd stick boot into safe mode and msconfig it to check memory box to 1532mb of the total 2048 1gig each stick and check permanent boot box okok and restart. Then i can install the nvidia 15. 76 driver shutdown install nvidia vga card nvidia 7600gs and windows would recognize and unistall onbrd videoo and restart and i would install the driver for 7600gs card 195. ? And good to go i ran for a year and installed to sp2 worked good. I have to do the same for windows 7.

Abit is no longer around and i have the newest bios and tried different memory ran memtest for a month, and msconfig was the only thing that stopped bsod and corruption and windows update failures if it would install by turning memory down and all memory options off, but i was wondering how to do a bcedit and if this would be more correct.

Cmd
Bcdedit
Bootcfg /raw /burnmemory=512 /a /id1

I dont have it quite right for the commands, but if i new how to set this then i could remove my msconfig portion and the shares video memory part would be corrected, maybe and would i still have to install with 1 stick of memmory and then do the cmd bootcfg with the second stick from safe mode setting. Its like the shared 256mb of the on-brd video was never set correctly for shared memory with both sticks. I have always had to double this 2048-512=1532mb and i could boot into windows and not crash i even got a exchanged new brd 3 or 4 years ago same thing too.

I could never use any thing from windows disc after that need to get dvd burner to create a new repair recovery new boot disc. But it recovers just fine from windows restore point side. Just dont restore from the first 4 or 5 restore points until completely installed to the 7600gs video card.

Wireless Network Automatic Connect But Does Not Stick

Windows 7 home premium (x86) user is running as administrator. Mcafee a/v corporate is installed.
In wireless properties, connection tab, the top box is checked (connect automatically when this network is in range) and the box to "connect even if this network is not broadcasting its name (ssi)" also is checked. I have checked these boxes manually and also had the network "troubleshooter" fix the problem of not automatically connecting. As soon as the top box is checked and ok is clicked, the connection to the wireless network is made. However, on the next reboot, both boxes are unchecked and the user must connect to the network manually. What is unchecking the boxes and how can i stop this from happening?

Repartition Memory Stick / Memory Card

How to repartition a memory stick or a memory card? So, i bought an 8 gb memory card and figured i could create a couple or a few partitions on it; perhaps exfat and fat32 ones. I fired up the disk management program only to find out that the flash memory disk has the shrink/extend/delete volume controls greyed out. I did manage to shrink the volume using the disk-part command line program but couldn't use it either for creating new volumes.

Where does this seemingly ridiculous and pointless restriction stem from? I only found a couple of instructions on how to partition a memory stick using some shady third party programs.

Failed Ir Usb Cir Install Usb Card Reader Problem

I have a reasonably clean and fresh w7 pro 32 install on a fujitsu lifebook t series tablet. I recently bought an epraizer card reader to enable me to import photos from a cf.

On installing it for the first time, the driver installs failed. The driver it failed on was the ehome infrared receiver (usbcir). To the best of my knowledge, the device does not contain an ir device of any sort.

I inserted the same device in an xp machine and it worked fine. Have i:

(A) wasted my money, (b) encountered a known problem with a simple fix (do tell), or
(C) tripped over something nasty i don't want to know about (see a)?

Identify Usb 2.0 Cables / Test Usb Cable Speed

Is there a way to tell if a cable is usb 2. 0? Or better yet, is there a was to test usb tables to find their transfer rate?I have a huge supply of usb cables to go through. Some are clearly marked usb on the connector or on the wire itself. But most cables have no markings to indicate their spec. I've searched a lot and found no good and reliable way to test them. I've seen recommendations to try to use the cables to transfer large files and watch the speed. But that does not seem reliable and won't work since i have all sorts of different end connectors to test.

And i've seen some spec information such as there will not be a ferrite connector on 2. 0 cables. And 2. 0 cables won't be longer than 3m. But i am looking for something that will tell me definitively if the cables are 2. 0 spec. And better yet, what is the actual transfer speed since some cables are better than others. I would prefer some marking or physical characteristics on the cable that would tell the version. But i am open to (hopefully inexpensive) test equipment too. Some sort of terminator-like tester would be ideal.

Usb Flash Drive - Usb Device Is Not Recognized

I have tried 4 different usb flash drives from different manufacturers and my usb hard drive from western digital. Windows 7 recognizes it until i start transferring files. Then it can't find the drive. When i unplug it and plug it back in, i get a notification that the usb device is not recognized. After i restart the computer, it does the same thing all over again. I ran vista before windows 7 and never had this problem. I am very frustrated. I must have access to my flash & external drives or windows 7 is useless to me.

Plugging Usb Keyboard & Mouse Into Different Usb Ports

I have a usb keyboard and mouse. Recently, i had to relocate my computer, so the keyboard and mouse were unplugged. My question is: if i plug the keyboard and mouse back, but not into the original usb ports, will this cause windows 7 to create a new hardware profile, or any other registry changes as a result?

Usb Headset Issue To Usb Hub

I am facing a problem with the usb headset lx-3000. When i connect it onto the mobo it plays without any problem, if i connect it at any usb hub it's dead. Both mic and speakers.connecting it back to the mobo it goes on without any problem.

It even continues playing without restarting the application like in vista. Same set up was on windows windows vista home pr 32b. While now i am using windows 7 ultimate 64b after format. Same headset, same keyboard (logitech g11). Think that it's driver problem but i've installed all the latest drivers.

Usb Suspend:usb Device Not Entering Suspend

I purchased windows 7 as soon as it was available in stores. I installed it and after using it for a few days, i noticed that my usb devices weren't selectively suspending to save power like they were in the release candidate of windows 7. I left it alone 'till now. I just reinstalled windows 7, thinking it maybe some software or driver that i had installed that was causing this problem. So i didn't install any drivers or software and ran the power efficiency diagnostics report, and all of my usb devices have the error: usb suspend:usb device not entering suspend.

Can you please help me with this? If you need to know, i am using an asus m4a79 deluxe mobo.

Usb Connection

I am having trouble with a usb connection. This is what it says. One of the usb devices attache to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it this happens whenever i put in a flash-drive. Or even when i try to download pictures from my camera. I have 2 label printers and 2 printers connected to my computer. This didn't start happening until i got 1 of the  new printers. I have tried putting the flash drives on a different computer and it works just fine.

I have replaced all the cables with 2. 0. I took the computer to staples to ask them and when they connected it it was fine. So i don't know what else i can do. Only one of my label printers is a serial port, all others are usb. This is a desktop. I have tried even putting the flash-drive in the back of the computer in one of the empty ports but i get the same error. I hope i don't sound too stupid. It is driving me crazy. Can you help me?

Bsod - Usb Vulnerability

This happened to me 1 week ago. The night before my computer was working fine. Turns it on the next morning and my usb mouse and usb wireless adapter were not working. I unplugged the mouse and plugged it back in and it worked. Then did the same to my wireless adapter. As soon as i plugged it in, i had a bsod and the computer restarted in less than 1 second.

The problems arrived when i checked my hotmail and found loads of spam being sent out from it and found that it was china sending these e-mails out to random people. Few days later i looked on my computer and noticed that applications had been replaced with chinese characters and that china had gone into my computer (i looked for this in the mcaffee logs on my computer).

My computer is fully up to date with updates from microsoft and there are no registry flaws at all. Any help here with this matter? As far as i am aware there was a vulnerability for this that had supposed to have been patched up.

Problems With Usb Ports

Basically i'm having problems with the usb ports. The ones on the back of the motherboard and the connectors inside on the motherboard. Some usb devices will work great, others won't work at all.

Example: i have 2 sandisk cruzer flash drives. If i plug the 4gb in windows picks it up right away and asks what i would like to do (open folder etc. ) However, when i plug the 2gb flash drive in windows does nothing. The cruzer 2gb shows up in "devices & printers" but i can't do anything with it. I can do this with every usb port on the motherboard. Same results. The 2gb flash drive works. I've tried it on another computer.

I noticed this when i tried inserting a memory card into my card reader. "Devices & printers" knows that there is a pro-gear xm-4u card reader attached, but won't do anything with it. I borrowed 2 other card readers from work and i get the same end result. Windows shows them in "devices & printers" but i can't do anything with them.

I'm using a fresh copy of windows 7 64bit. Installed it about 8 days ago. I upgraded the bios right after windows was installed. However i assumed the usb port wouldn't be a problem so i didn't checked them before upgrading the bios.

Usb Is Recognised, But Does Not Appear In My Computer

I've searched through the forums here, and tried many of the answers people have given for this problem. I tried unchecking the 'hide empty drives in the computer folder' option. I also tried going through disk management and changing the drive letter, but this option does not even appear. The drives are marked unallocated, and the only options i have are about shrinking or spanning volumes. The drives work fine in other computers, and is recognized when it is plugged in because it gives me the 'remove safely' option.

Usb Drive, Everything Became Read-only

Why Doesnt The Usb Power Off ?

Why doesn't the usb power off in windows 7 & vista. My led is still on after i click on the remove usb icon. Vista and win 7 rc1 still say i can remove the usb but the usb is still powered. This, in my opinion, can still affect the usb. Is it possible to have the usb power down like in xp. It is not a big issue but important from the stand point of possibly losing data on the usb or other device.

Usb Shows Up As Cd Drive

I am on an hp pavilion dv7 notebook pc running the current windows 7 ops. I have my lacie drive plugged in and when i look in the device control panel i see it. Windows says it is running properly.
When i try and access it i cannot because it tells me to insert a blank cd. It thinks it is a cd player. Details of device shows it to be a disk drive. How can i change it to a usb? This is shown right below the disk drive, but how do i engage it? Simply clicking on it does not work.
