Computer Shows Usb Device Is Connected When It Is Not

Recently i started up my computer and plugged in my ipod to charge it (as usual). The charging worked fine, but a window popped up saying that it failed to install the proper software. It also started looping the sound played when it finds a new usb device, despite the fact that my ipod had remained plugged in and apparently connected the whole time.

Naturally, i unplugged my ipod. The computer kept giving me the generic error message (device software was not installed, or whatever; no specific error number), as well as playing the sound every 10 seconds or so. I tried restarting my computer, to no avail.

When i look in my device manager, it shows that there is two unknown devices present. But there is nothing connected to my usb drives. I tried uninstalling the unknown devices; the sound continues to play, and after a minute or so the unknown devices reappear in my device manager. I also tried uninstalling all of my usb root hubs, but this did nothing: the sound kept playing and the unknown devices reappeared.

I'm out of ideas and i haven't been able to find any info on the internet pertaining to this problem.

My computer is an hp pavilion dv3t-2000, running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Also present in my usb controllers menu is:

 - Intel(r) ich9 family usb universal host controller - 2934 through 2938
 - Intel(r) ich9 family usb2 enhanced host controller - 293a and 293c
 - Usb root hub (x5)

Let me know if you need any more details on my set-up. I'm no pro with this computer stuff, but i'm relatively able, in most cases, given the right support to refer to.

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.

Dvd Device Driver Blocked - Unable To Use Device Code 48

I get a code 48 message. I have an intel d945psn board that has run w2000 on a eide hard drive. I upgraded to windows 7 with a new sata hard drive clean install, but transferred files with pc mover. Now my dvd burner(s) don't work citing the infamous code 48 and saying that the software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with windows.

Aren't cd/dvd device drivers pretty standard, and included with the bios?  How do i deal with that problem. I have tried to update drivers through "driver access", but the problem persists. The device doesn't even show up in windows explorer or my computer, but can be seen in device manager and on the cmos menu. The same is true of my second, identical sata hard drive. It appears that some of my important system drivers have been blocked.

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

Cannot Find External Hard Drive But It Shows Up In Devices And Printers

I cannot find my external hard drive under "computer" but it shows up in "devices and printers" how do i access the files on my external hard drive? I cannot find my external hard drive in "computer".

I just bought a new hp computer running windows 7. I just copied a bunch of picture, music, and movie files from my old mac (running leopard osx) onto a western digital external hard drive.

I plugged the external drive into my hp via the usb 2. 0 port on the front of the computer. Windows recognized the drive. It shows up in control panel/hardware and sound/devices and printers as "external hdd".

It does not show up in "computer" under "devices with removable storage". I just want to access my files so i can copy them to my new computer. How do i access my files on the external drive?  Why isn't it showing up in "computer"?

Apple Mobile Device Driver Issue With Mtp Device Driver

How do i get windows 7 to accept the 'apple mobile device driver' instead of the 'mtp device driver'? It is driving me nuts! Frequent itunes sync issues occurring. Suggestion is that windows is treating as a camera instead of ipod which makes sense given it asks me if i want to import pictures each time i connect the ipod. I need to get it to update driver from mtp to apple mobile but cannot get it to do it as it keeps saying no compatible driver in the file.

Device Stage

I've created a smart card device stage package and put it in my mini-driver package through winqual submission. When i plug in the smart card, drivers get downloaded and installed successfully from windows update server. Upon finishing installation, the device stage window pops up. After that, windows will only show my device icon on taskbar when smart card inserted. My question is : can i disable device stage pop-up on first connect? I don't want that.

Here is sections from the inf file (according to microsoft device experience development kit docs)[addregautoplayhandler] hklm, read more at the forum.

No Device Installed

I recently completed an os install. I went from xp pro to windows 7. It appears that everything installed correctly and it was even able to update a few drivers. That being said i am having one major issue and i'm seeing a lot of redundant and incorrect information on the net. I'd like to post in respect to what i've done and see if perhaps i have missed something. Before we start here a few important stats about my machine:

Os: windows 7
Motherboard: asus sk8v
Chipset: k8t800

My sound card:
sound blaster live! (Wdm)
Model: sb0200

This issue is:

The speaker icon on the bottom right of the tool bar has a red x indicating the following under the "playback tab": "no audio devices are installed".

 Under the "recording tab":
"Microphone"
"Logitech"
"Microphone (pro 4000)"
Default device:there is a green circle with a check mark beside the microphone icon.

My headset is the logictech pro 4000. It is a headset and microphone all-in-one. It is powered by usb. If i plug the device in my playback shows this headset as my sound. There is no option to change to another sound device because windows 7 does not recoginize the sound card. When i look in device manager under sound it just shows the headset. I've tried removing the headset driver then rebooting with the headset unplugged. It simply puts the driver back on. I've tried downloading several sound blaster drivers, the problem is when you try to install these drivers the install stops because it reports there is no sound blaster device on the machine. I've also tried running a driver from windows vista, no go. What i need to figure out is how to make the device manager recognize the sound card. I think it's coming up under the heading of: 
Other devices-
                      -Multimedia audio controller
                      -Pci input device

I think that is my card because:
1. It clearly states it is an audio controller
2. It is plugged in via a pci slot

So again my question would be how do i make the device manager or windows 7 recognize the multimedia audio controller recognized as sound blaster? If i can get the system to recognize the card as sb then i am sure i can get the drivers to do their job. Windows compatibility page states there are no drivers for this device, and the solution is to go out and get a sound card that is compatible with windows 7.

This card ran flawlessly on windows xp. As a matter of fact i had multiple sound options installed. I used the logitech headset with microphone for online use with ventrilo. I used the sound card separately with a different set of headphones and an actual microphone for doing voice i created a "karoke like" player where people could sing along with songs from a host of different applications like itunes, limewire, jukebox etc. So i know the sound the card works. I just need to make windows 7 recognize it.

Installing Device Drivers

I am trying to install a controller using specific drivers which i have and every time i try to install them through the devices menu in control panel windows tells me that they are already up to date (even though the controller will not work). I've tried uninstalling the drivers which windows automatically installed and everytime i connect the controller windows installs the same drivers again without letting me cancel. Is there anyway to override this and install the drivers i want to install? I am running the windows 7 rc.

No Device Drivers Found

I'm trying to install windows 7, and have wasted multiple discs in the process, trying different speeds, different softwares, even different types of discs. My problem is i'm getting stuck with the "no device drivers found. " I've seen a few threads but i cannot find an answer that will work.

The last thing i thought i would mention is that i'm currently on windows xp x32 and i'm wanting to go to windows 7 x64. Can this be done? Do i need to fully uninstall windows xp with the windows xp disc before even using the windows 7 disc?

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.

Headphones Device Disabled

I accidentally disabled my headphone device. I had my sound device manager open to the headphones manager. There was a check-box that said "disable this device" and i accidentally checked it. I clicked apply, then the box was blank except for a text saying "the device you are configuring has been removed" even when my headphones were plugged in. I tried replugging several times, and nothing. I looked all over the device manager/sound manager/control panel for anything that would let me enable my headphones to work again. Any ideas?

Device Driver Installation

After upgrading to windows 7, i purchased a new linksys wireless n card. I ran through the initial setup with the software provided by linksys, then shut down the computer and installed the card. The installation was supposed to continue when i restarted the computer, but before i could continue the install, windows discovered the device and installed its own driver. I was therefore unable to finish installing the driver provided by linksys. How can i keep windows from installing its driver so that i can install the driver that comes with the card?

Audio Device Is Disabled

I've gone back and forth looking through countless websites / forums for a solution to this, but i cant seem to find one. My computer's sound card would used to start acting funky after i left it on for a day or 2, and would require a restart, and after restarting from one of these, the sound stopped working altogether, my sound card is integrated into my motherboard. I also cant watch videos now since my sound stopped working, but video games work fine. As well towards the oddness, my internet connection tab in the bottom right of my screen says i'm not connected to anything, but im actually fine.

Cannot Remove Unspecified Device

There is not windows 7 driver for my printer, as it's an older printer (about 5 years i think) so i had to use an alternate driver provided by hp so that i could properly print. Problem is the printer also appears under unspecified devices. I removed the device in device manager but it still appears under unspecified devices. When you right click you do not have the option to remove device or run as administrator. If anyone knows how to remove the device please let me know.

I have upgraded from vista 32bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit, i have not made any hardware changes, apart from formatting my hard drive and then clean installing windows 7. It i saying that i don't have a sound card, which i do, i have a creative t9700, i cannot find drivers for it and when i troubleshoot it to let it find its own drivers it returns without any drivers. I have installed windows 7 as a present for my father who hates me going anywhere near his stuff because i am cursed with this unlucky streak of if it can go wrong it will.

Error 43 Unrecognized Device

I've been using windows 7 for 6 months without a problem on 7/19 after an update all usb ports stopped recognizing or acknowledging devices, all devices except the printer that has it's own software, there is power in all ports, i am able to charge my mp3 player but i can't download files, i have uninstalled and reinstalled all drivers, and system restore with the windows 7 disk, nothing seems to work, the fixit program doesn't work, nor the troubleshooting, it recognizes there is a problem but says it can't fix automatically, i noticed the same thing happen earlier in the year with another kind of driver, mine are all intel and systems says they're up to date. I'm hoping that a fix will come like the one with nvidia.
