Previously Working Usb Device Problem


Just got a new lenovo t410 with windows 7 pro. Inserted a ms wheel mouse optical usb and a ms natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 in the usb ports and it worked fine. I got tired of constantly removing and inserting the usb devices when i wanted to take my laptop with me so i got a usb hub (powered). I connected the two devices to the hub and the hub to my laptop. None of the devices worked. So i connected the mouse and keyboard directly to the laptop and they no longer work nor are they recognized as devices attached to the laptop. I tried uninstalling the generic hub through device manager, but everytime i reboot, the generic hub comes back.

As a test, i tried connecting another mouse to my laptop and windows finds it without any issues. I only have the issue with the previously working ms keyboard and mouse. Any thoughts on correcting this issue?

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Device Malfunctioned Error Code - 43 - Usb Device Not Recognized

I purchased a new computer with windows 7.initially my ipod worked fine with this computer. It still charges the ipod but nothing else. In addition it will not work on my old computer.

1. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled itunes.

2. I reset the device losing all of my music.

3. I have gone to device manager and the ipod shows up as unkown device. I have stopped the device driver and rebooted.

4. I have tried to have attached to my old computer update and i receive the exact same error and usb not recognized message.

5. Other devices work fine on the usb hub, in addition i have tried the other usb hub.

All of the above measures have failed. This all started when i was having problems updating my music to the ipod, and i chose the restore function on the summary page of the itunes software, with the device attached, and recognized. Since then nothing? Initially when the device was attached after the restore option was chosen, i got need to attach to a 2. 0 usb  high speed hub, error message? It is a 2. 0 usb high speed device. I have reviewed other questions in this forum, on apples forums, all with the same results, nothing.

Usb Hub Displaying As Device In Device Manager

Pretty much all my device connected to my usb hub used to show in device manager as separate devices. However, they now only show under the name "kevin o'connor" (the name of my zune). Open the device's properties and going to the hardware tab will show all the device connected via the usb hub.

Therefore, all the devices do in fact work, it's just a little bothersome to me, and the fact that i can't safely remove anything from the hub without having to eject the entire hub. Here's a screen shot that shows what the hub shows as: http://i34. Tinypic.com/34fxmp4.png

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.

Mtp Usb Device

I have recently tried to connect my canon 50d digital camera to my windows 7 professional 64bit machine, but for it just can't recognize the camera. I've looked at my devices and printers folder and found the camera simply labeled as "canon digital camera", and it is missing a driver. I dug deeper and found that while installing the driver windows had encountered a strange problem of "system cannot find the file specified" for the mtp usb device.

It appears that the mtp driver seems to be missing on my computer! Anyone have a way to solve this problem? I've seen some of the other threads talking about getting the mtp kits, and i have tried that with no avail.
 
I also suspect it might be a registry error, but i do not have the expertise to locate the right registry key or know how i'd go about fixing this issue. Much thanks for anyone willing to input on this issue!

Usb Device Not Recognized

I just purchased a toshiba notebook satellite l500. It has stickers shown windows 7 on the notebook but i can't find the windows cd in the packaging. I have alot of problems with this notebook till i can't do my homework and run basic tasks.

Problem 1) the system always prompt 'setting up for 1st time use' in every time i switch on the notebook. Then all the setting in internet explorer are reset and not reflecting what i changed to.

Problem 2) when i plug in my imation apollo 2. 5" portable hdd (25 phdd-500gb), the windows shown 'usb device not recognized'. I tried using ms fix tool but still doesn't work.

Problem 3) i added a password into my account which is also administrator account. The same password works when pc starting up but it doesn't work when i tried to switch pc back from sleeping mode with the same password. It shown me 'account being disabled'. I see no option in the control panel for me to activate this account again.

Problem 4) whenever i switch on my notebook, the screen shown 'system preparation tool 3. 14'. What is this for and is it recommended to have this? If not, pls advice how to switch this off at windows 7. I found some procedure to switch off at windows vista but not 7. Apologize for i can't differential between toshiba's problem or window's problem. All i know, i have some frustration to get things done with this new notebook and windows 7.

Usb Device Not Entering Suspend

Recently, my windows 7 partition refused to go to sleep or hibernate. I poked around, and found out that i needed to run "powercfg -energy", which i did as i tried a sleep. It turned out that the usb hubs were apparently keeping windows from sleeping (although this has not been an issue in the past). So, in response, i removed my usb mouse connector. The number of errors dropped down from 5 to 3. Now, only the following remain:errorsusb suspend:usb device not entering suspend

Mtp Usb Device Failed

This error occurs when i try to install my canon rebel, nikon cool pix cameras and my ipod w/camera. I have done much research and see it's a common problem. It's happened on cameras, i-phones, occasionally mp3's of all brands. It's also happened on many brands of computers. There is only 1 common thread - windows. I use windows 7 and need to use my camera now! I've paid a lot of people to help and no one can find the answer. I know i'm not alone. I've tried all usb ports. I've tried uninstalling devices. I get a mtp device w/yellow caution sign in universal serial bus drivers.

Usb Printer Device Not Recognised

I have a canon mp810 multifunction printer. It is a usb printer. It has worked fine on my old dell desktop pc. And my dell 1525 notebook can also talk to it via a wifi network and print (most of the time). But when i plug the printer directly into the notebook, i get an error "usb device not recognized". I have tried installing new win 7 versions of the drivers from canon but nothing seems to work. Oh yes i can add the printer to the device list, but it is not recognized properly and ultimately won't print.

And as a control measure, i borrowed another dell notebook (slightly older model) and just plugged the printer cable into the usb port and that notebook proceeded to access windows update and download the drivers and all was fine within about 10 minutes. Something is wrong with my notebook. And the problem is specific to this printer because i can plug in other devices to the usb ports and they work fine. The only other printer devices are onenote and xps and fax.

Usb Storage Device Not Detected

I am using a 2gb "memory stick pro duo" plug into a "memory stick pro duo" to "memory stick duo" adaptor, this is then plugged into my trust "all-in-1 card reader" which is plugged into my computer. The computer however does not recognize that anything is plugged in and no error message shows up. In device manager i can see 2 "generic usb hub" which i know signifies the "all-in-1 card reader", but no other devices related to my memory stick show up.

I've tried this on two other computers and they both have the same problem. When i plug my memory card into my camera it can easily see the pictures stored on there. I was going to try to reformat the memory stick but if it can't be detected at all, how would i do that?

Usb Device Not Recognized In Win 7

So it seems ms has a problem with " usb device not recognized in windows 7 ". A google search will find no real solutions to the problem. I haven't found one hear ether. How can i have a handful of flash drives and external hard drives that will not work on only 2 win7 systems that i know of , yet work on others ? I never needed to download drivers from anyone to make them work on any other os . I just plug them in and the work . The 1st time. Not after trying all things that don't. This is something that needs a real fix. I should not have to pay tech support to find out why. This is clearly an os win7 problem.

No Recording With Usb Audio Device

I choose to play the audio output of my pc via a hi-end usb dac rather than the scabby wee green hole. But as soon as i connect it (or any external usb sound-card) all internal audio input to the stereo mix disappears. Stereo mix remains the only and active device in the sound 'record' tab (other than microphone) with or without the dac connected but any signal showing activity on the bar meter when not connected disappears when connected.

As all recording software, including the basic windows recorder, still see only the stereo mix recording source option then no recording is possible whilst monitoring via the dac. I have to disconnect it and monitor any recording from said green hole. Then, once recorded, swop back again.

As i make music, entirely pc based, then i require as good and true a monitoring system as possible, thus the dac, but it's a bit of a nonsense that having got my mix just so via the dac, i then have to disconnect the thing just so's i can record it down onto two tracks of audacity or the like. And then connect it back to listen to the final result. Am i doing something wrong/missing the point somewhere please?

Accessing Xp Only Usb Device Seamlessly

Ok, while upgrading a setup to xp-professional, the problem arose that the old scanner didn't have a viable driver for windows 7 64. I just setup windows xp mode, and was able to load it with the xp drivers and an old image program to do the scanning. However when i try opening the program seamlessly, it opens with the usb connection to the scanner disabled, likewise i've had to manually activate the scanner in xp mode every time. Is there a way to change the default usb settings in xp mode so it can automatically claim that usb device every time it opens, including seamlessly?

Cannot Uninstall A Usb Device Driver

I tried to install a usb dual serial port on this window 7 computer and it corrupted an exsisting usb driver. I can see the device i when i look in the device manager and in "programs and features" but i can't uninstall it. The uninstall function asks for an update file which i don't have (the iar development tool is a single install). If i could uninstall this "driverx for msp-fet430if" then i could uninstall / re install the complete program. How can i get window 7 to just uninstall this driver?

Usb Device Goes To Autoplay Then Closed

I recently purchased a new pc with windows 7, all in all i like it, however i do have a problem .

I have lots of small usb flash drive devices - one for each of my clients - which i use for backing up config files and certain pieces of information for them.

However, when i try to access any of these devices through my windows 7 pc a strange thing happens, the device is recognized, the autoplay window appears, then before i can do anything it closes and the device disappears from "my computer".

I've tried the devices in both my laptop and another pc in the office running vista and both can access the data without a hitch, so its not the actual usb drives. I've got other usb external hard drives hooked into the windows 7 pc running perfectly well, plus a few other usb devices, so its not a usb issue.

Usb Headset - This Device Cannot Start - Code 10

I've just bought a usb headset today and tried to use it. I got a driver error message when first plugged in. The help system proved useless. After doing some searches on this forum i checked the device manager and found that the usb audio device properties indicates that 'this device cannot start. (Code 10)'. The forum entries suggests that many people are having similar problems.

Mine is a new windows 7 64 bit install on a new hard drive, but on an older pc hardware - asus a8n sli premium. Anyone got any suggestions as to resolving the problem. Note that a normal headset worked fine yesterday (but i broke it) plugged into the jack sockets but i wanted to use a usb headset so as to avoid having to keep going around the back of the pc to change to my 2. 1 speaker system.

Lg Touch Phone Usb Device Not Recognized

I plugged my new lg touch phone into my laptop to load music. Drivers were automatically loaded, except one failed. The one that failed to load wasn't a problem because the other two drivers were the ones needed to identify the phone in windows and load the music. The problem is the alert ("usb device not recognized) keeps popping up and i can't get it to turn off.

I replugged in the phone and that cleared it while the phone was plugged in and for 5 minutes after but then the alerts started up again. They flash every few minutes. I've closed the connection, it doesn't show on the task tray but in the alert menu under windows it continues to list "usb device note recognized. " How can i clear this alert?

I've rebooted and completely shut down the laptop to no avail.

Usb Device Fried By Win 7 Security

After plugging a usb device into my new windows 7 machine, i got a message saying that the drivers did not correctly install, and after that my device will no longer function at all. Even after unplugging the device, it will not power up.

This occurred within a few minutes of plugging it in. The device i was trying to use was a fisher price elmo phone that can be programmed using software you download from the manufacturer. I downloaded and installed the software without any problems, but after plugging in the device using a usb/micro usb (5 pin) cable, i got the aforementioned error message, and then the software told me that the phone was not connected. I disconnected the phone and discovered that it would no longer power on. I replaced the batteries, but nothing changed.

My father experienced the same thing with his gps unit.

Xp Mode - Legacy Device Drivers Usb

I understand xp mode, running on supported hardware, allows the xp "guest" to utilize usb devices on the win7 host. What i am hoping is that i can install a legacy (winxp) usb device driver in the guest vm and have the legacy device (phone) work in the vm, without having a driver in the host, win7 environment.

This would be great, but i can also see why the device would need to be recognized with a driver in the physical host before it could be virtualized in the guest os. I'll get around to testing it, but just thought i'd ask here first, will it work? No vista/win7 driver available.
