Usb 2.0 Irda Bridge Driver Problem With Upgrade


Windows 7 upgrade issue, upgrade advisor will not allow install until usb 2. 0 irda bridge driver is upgraded. Windows 7 upgrade advisor gives me the following when i try to upgrade to windows 7. This does not show up in my device manager and i cannot find it in the control panel as well. I am running a gateway laptop t-6330u with vista and i am trying to upgrade to windows 7. What can be done here, i am pretty much at the end of my rope with this and am ready to refund the product and keep vista.

The following issues are preventing windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue. Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing. Upgrading windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:

These devices might not work properly after the upgrade. Before upgrading, we recommend updating the drivers for these devices. Cancel the upgrade, open control panel and search for "update device drivers", or go to the device manufacturer's website to search for updated drivers.

Usb / Rs232 Bridge Gives Blue Screen

Usb/rs232 bridge gives bsod. I have a rs232/usb bridge with prolific drivers that worked fine in xp sp3. It now gives me the blue screen of death after about 3-5 minutes when run as admin. If i run in regular user mode then it locks my software up after nor more than 5 minutes. I then purchased a new bridge that uses ftdi drivers but it still locks up.

No more bsod either as admin or user but locks the program up. This is the text from windows. Problem signature: problem event name: bluescreen os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 768. 3 locale id: 1033 additional information about the problem: bccode: d1 bcp1: 0000000000000038 bcp2: 0000000000000002

Usb To Ata / Atapi Bridge Installation Fail

Recently i got a new pc with windows 7 64x. I have an external hdd that windows 7 recognized it until today. I had some issues with the hdd, but managed to work around them:at first when i started my computer it wouldn't get passed the initial screen (the one with the logo and press f2 for bios, f12 for boot setup). If i would unplug my hdd it would unfreeze. So i figured that maybe the computer was looking for a boot from the external hdd and so i change the primary boot to the cd. And it all worked great for a couple of days.

Then it started again with the freezing at the initial screen, so i would have to unplug the hdd. And then even though the hdd was plugged back it wasn't listed in my computer. So normally i would go and uninstall usb mass storage from device manager and to a restart with the hdd plugged in. And that used to work. But today, faced with the same problem, i tried everything i could think of and nothing worked.

I uninstalled usb mass storage from device manager and also usb drive from disk drives, unplugged it and plugged it back. Most of the time it would say that the driver installation failed, but even when it would install still i couldn't see it on my computer. I did multiple restarts. I noticed that if i uninstall both the usb and usb drive and then restart, at the restart i get a different message when installing the driver: "usb to ata/atapi bridge", but it ends up with a failed error. What should i do to fix this?

Irda For Win 7

I recently bought a windows 7 upgrade from vista for my acer travel-mate from acer. During the setup process a message tells me that i must close the wizard and upgrade my irda driver. There does not appear to be one. So i cannot complete my upgrade and if i could i would not be able to use my irda port (great for the cycling computer). Is there a driver? Will there ever be one? Why would acer sell the upgrade to the user of a model with irda?

Irda Dongle Not Working In Hotsync

Irda dongle not working in hotsync -> unable to initiate hotsync operation because the port is in use by another application. Recently i purchased an irda dongle for my palm tungsten e because my new pc is running window 7 and palm does not have 64 driver support. I am able to install the palm desktop software v6. 2. 2. However, i can not get the hotsync to work.

The pc recognized the irda dongle and when i put the palm close to it, after 3-5 seconds, it will show "unable to initiate hotsync operation because the port is in use by another application".

Aero Crashes On Using Adobe Bridge From Taskbar

I built my machine 6 months ago. I use adobe cs4 and use bridge for my raw pictures conversions. With bridge in the taskbar perhaps 50% of the time when i open bridge using the taskbar aero crashes. I can use bridge ok and the pc works ok except for aero. Closing bridge aero stays crashed. However, if i right click bridge in the taskbar and then select exit bridge, aero recovers and the pc is fine. Ll windows, adobe, mband nvidia gtx260 drivers are up to date. I'm running win 7 64bit ultimate, 12 gb ram, i7 920 cpu, asus p6t-se mb. I have a 128gb ssd with 75 gb free. I use a 64gb ssd as my swap file drive for win 7 and adobe. I have4 x 1gb samsung hd in a raid 1+0 configuration onboard. I also have a wd 4 gb sharepace nas. Backups are all running fine.

I have taken a system image after a clean install of all programs and settings. Occasionally i have brought the image back after being a bit sus about a couple of suspicious files i was sent. Much easier to bring the image back i think than mess around not trusting the system security. I have had this problem intermittently since being built. I have checked for incompatibilities with various programs but the only constant is that this only occurs with bridge as i say around 50% of the time. After months of trying to sus this myself i am hoping there's someone here who can assist. I run trend micro internet security pro as my antivirus. I've looked on both the ms and adobe sites with no luck as to what causes this. Just one more thing. I have installed no games on this pc so that rules out a gaming problem.

Usb Driver Issues

When i attempt to plug in a usb storage device, be it an external hard drive, an ipod, or a usb memory stick, windows tells me it's trying to install the driver, but then quickly shifts to saying "device driver software was not successfully installed. " When i click on this balloon, it says that the device driver couldn't be installed. After a bit of research, i went to my device manager, which had the name of the thing i was trying to get working (in this case, a freeagent xtreme external hard drive), but the little usb symbol next to it had a yellow caution symbol.

Right clicking on it, i tried to update the software by having windows search automatically for the driver software. Soon, it came back telling me that "the best driver software for your device is already installed", and showed the driver as the usb mass storage device. Only, the hard drive is still not working, and any attempts to update the driver only serve to tell me that the mass storage device is up-to-date. Looking at the properties for the device, the device status box says to "reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18). "

Doing so goes back again to tell me that the mass storage device driver is already installed. My keyboard and mouse are both usb, and they work fine, no matter what usb port i connect them to. Yet, these problems persist for any storage device i try, on any usb port i try. Any help is appreciated!

Usb Driver Malfunction

Usb driver malfunction (win 7 problem) - ? Randomly renewing itself? A usb device will disconnect and connect momentarily (within about 3-10 min of use ) with out any physical changes happening. It only happens to all my windows 7 computers. It is more common with usb printers, usb mass storage devices, and usb mice so far. It doesn't happen to all the devices connected, just one of them, for example: on computer.

I have - usb printer, usb mouse, usb flash drive, usb hdd (the only one affected is the usb hdd); computer b - usb mouse, usb printer, usb keyboard, usb flash drive (the only one affected is the usb mouse); computer c - "same setup" (only the usb printer is affected). I have determined it is not a hardware issue, it is something with windows 7 i can't explain.

Usb Driver Not Recognized

I keep getting error message "usb driver not recognized" every three seconds? And it does not identify which one has malfunctioned! Normally, the only one attached is my mouse. Printer (canon mx100 series) won't work! Everything is hooked up, driver downloaded (from canon) and it still just won't work. I had a canon sent to me with this laptop. (Which worked, finally) i am not a novice either, been working with and on others computers for over 25 years!

Running windows vista home premium program and trying to use outlook express. Being told windows live has taken over as the new outlook, however, keep being told to sign up for hotmail. When you do? You keep being told to sign up for hotmail? Then it'll tell you that you have no inbox (and you never get to your email even though its telling you you have many emails sent to you already).

This is so awesome (or is it awful?) Think its time for a mac rather than a pc.

Problem With Usb Driver From Ms

On two different (brand new) computers, with fresh installs of ms win7 (x64 enterprise ed. ), The usb drivers (from microsoft) somehow. Unsigned themselves. Thus making it impossible to use a usb based keyboard and mouse w/ a regular boot. I must have my users press f8 to disable the digital driver signing check (which i would rather not make them do for several reasons).

Is there any way to re-sign the drivers, or re-download them or something?  I've tried taking the system back to previous states and downloading drivers from windows update with no success.

Usb Devices Stop Responding After Upgrade

After upgrade to windows 7 64 bit home premium, usb connected devices, particularly hard drives, stop responding shortly after start up. Includes iphone, ipod, hp personal media drives. I purchased a brand new hp pavilion e9140f running a amd phenom ii x4 925 chip that had vista 64 bit home premium installed. It was eligible for free upgrade to windows 7 64 bit home premium.

I followed all instructions for upgrade and it went fine, except that now any storage device connected via a usb stops responding during file transfers. This includes my hp personal media drive that is brand new, my iphone, my ipod, etc. The only thing working is the hp pocket media drive which slides into it's own slot. I've tried uninstalling all usb devices in device manager and rebooting. Same problem. So now i can't copy files or back up my pc to an external drive.

I can't transfer music to my ipod or iphone. Basically, my $2, 000 pc is useless. This appears to be a known issue with windows 7 but there's no fix. I have tried everything except reverting back to vista where all these problems didn't exist. My usb devices worked. So this is definitely something to do with windows 7 upgrade. Can anyone help me with this. After 4 hours on phone with hp, nothings been fixed. They can't figure it out.

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?

After Upgrade Usb Hard Drive Folders Are Empty

After upgrade from vista 64 to windows 7 64, usb hard drive initially works, then at some point all the "folders are empty" and i cannot access files untill i reboot. Then same thing all over again. My setup was working perfectly fine with vista 64; i had a 1tb  seagate freeagent external hard drive where i had all my pictures, music and movies. These media was monitored by my zune software, windows media player and windows media center, and also shared on my network.

Then i upgraded to windows 7 64. At first it seemed fine, windows 7 recognized and external drive, all applications were still monitoring my media from it, and i was able to access the files. But after a couple of minutes of accessing the files, the drive just seems to suddenly go offline.

I can still browse the folder structure, but the i don't see any files, and folders are empty. In some folders i see the files (maybe the info was cached) and if i try to access it, i get an error to "check the location of the file" or "file not available". Once i reboot my system, then everything seems back to normal but as soon as i try to access anything, it breaks as before. It fails even more promptly if i try to download something on to the drive.

All the usb drivers seem ok. The external hard drive works normally on my laptop that has a windows 7 32bit, so no problems in the drive itself. I tried removing all other usb devices (i have 7 usb inputs on and two more on my monitor), i tried changing power options so that usb ports are not automatically shut off by the pc, i tried reinstalling all the hardware drives including the nvidia chipset driver, i even reinstalled windows 7. The issue is still not resolved.

Usb Keyboard / Mouse Not Working After Upgrade To Win7

Upgraded vaio vgn-fz290 to win 7 from vista. Have ms digital media pro keyboard and wireless intellimouse explorer 2. 0. Both work fine if i use them on another computer, and worked fine on the vaio before upgrading to w7. When i plug them in they do not show up in the "safely remove hardware" or under usb devices, keyboards or mice in device manager. When i plug the keyboard in the "f" function light comes on for 1 second and then goes out. When i plug in the wireless receiver for the mouse no lights come on.

Basically the computer acts like nothing is even plugged into the usb. Tried every usb port, same result. Also used my usb flash drive successfully in each usb port, so it is not a bad usb port. No splats show up in device manager. I have also tried an old usb keyboard, and get the same result. If i open "safely remove hardware" i see all other usb devices plugged in, but not the keyboard or mouse.

I have installed the w7 drivers from ms and no difference. I have uninstalled the drivers, no difference. I have uninstalled my primary laptop keyboard and rebooted, still won't recognize the usb keyboard. I can plug the keyboard and/or mouse into my mac mini server and it works like a champ.

I am utterly clueless on what else i can do and hate using a small keyboard and track pad at my desk.

Upgrade Driver Issue Code 19

Description of problem: after uninstalling the cd-rom, upon reboot windows 7 detects and recognizes the device as "matshita dvd-ram uj-350s" and installs the generic cd-rom.sys driver. At this point all is ok. However, if now the notebook is rebooted, windows 7 marks the driver as incomplete or damaged (code 19) and the device is not functioning. Any number of driver reinstall attempts result in the same condition - code 19; this includes uninstalling the device, scanning for h/w changes and windows 7 installs a driver.

Only by uninstalling the cd-rom and rebooting will windows 7 recognize the device and install the driver to a functioning condition. This process seems to repeat ad infinitum. Background: system ran vista ultimate x64 for over a year with no issues.

System description:
Toshiba satellite a215-s7422
Cd-rom "matshita dvd-ram uj-350s"
Windows 7 ultimate x64(upgrade from vista ultimate x64)

Hauppauge Usb Tv Tuner Driver Issue

Default driver has poor video quality for usb 950/980 hauppauge analog tv tuner, manual install has great quality. Windows 7 does not install the better quality or updated driver for my usb tv tuner even when i use device manager to check for updated driver. It says "the best driver software for your device is already installed". I downloaded software from hauppauge and manually updated the driver using device manager and having it search the drivers folders from the download, and a newer driver was installed.

I can imagine that many users of this particular usb tv tuner might not be aware that there is a better driver available for their device and the video quality can be vastly improved with an update. But the update will not happen without manually downloading and installing the drivers as i have done. I myself had 3 tv tuners, 2 of which plugged into the motherboard and the third being the usb version.

Any recording i did that used the usb tuner had poor video quality (noticeable jaggies - a technical term :-) ), the other tuners had good quality video recordings. So i stopped using the usb tuner, but discovered the new driver many months later and started using it again. Fter switching to the 64 bit version of windows, the internal tv tuners no longer worked unless i set the ram to less than 4 gb of memory. Nyway, i had been using the rc version of windows 7 and only a few days ago have started using windows 7, the retail version.

I was surprised that the video quality was terrible, the jaggies were back, and windows 7 was telling me i had the best drivers already installed. I would think that windows 7 should have offered the better drivers automatically, and until it does, some users may be missing out on better quality tv recording.

Fuji Finepix F31fd Usb Driver

Currently running win7 pro x64 (via ieee membership) and installed a gamut of programs and devices (and so far everything works) except for my digital camera. I can install the program (fiji finepix viewer) but the usb driver it uses to recognize the camera does not install/will not work. I've tried fuji's site and came up fruitless. Fuji's line of cameras do not just plug in and come up as a removable drive like others; it requires their exif program, usually running in the taskbar, before plugging it in (and turning it on). Is anyone aware of a compatible driver or of a procedure to remedy this?

Alfa Rt3070 Usb Driver Disabled

I have an alfa networks usb wifi card model awus036nh using a ralink rt3070 chipset inside. I've tried to install my card using the included cd in windows 7 ultimate 32bits. I've also tried downloading drivers from alfa web page and ralink webpage for my usb card. Ll is installed but the card is disabled in windows "lan conections". When i click on enable it, it continues disabled. If i click on diagnose it sais that there's a problem with the driver that is incompatible.

I don't know what else to do because i've also change my usb cable but the problem continues. I installed in a windows vista ultimate 64 bits and the same problem with my card. There's a thing i consider: the blue light in the usb card is blinking or is active, i think that means that the card is working but i can't use it. Please help me to resolve this.

Cannot Update Usb Print Driver Without Error

I am trying to get an hp 4100 laserjet printer to work on my new windows 7 ultimate 64 bit laptop. When i plug in the printer through a usb adapter cable, windows 7 finds and loads a compatible driver hp4100 pcl6. The printer works most of the time, but i get errors when i try to print many images. According to the hp forums, the pcl6 driver has issues just like this, and they suggest using either a pcl5 or ps driver instead. I explored using add printer and found that there is a windows 7 64 compatible driver hp4100 ps available if i select to use windows update to find all the latest printer drivers.

Since i could not find any way to get windows 7 to let me select the driver (it always installs hp4100 pcl6 without asking or letting me intervene), i tried going to printer properties > advanced on the printer screen. I selected new driver, chose the hp4100 ps driver from the list, and it seemed to install it. However, as soon as i went back to printer properties, i got an error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed and asking if i want to install it.

When i look under print server properties, the hp4100 ps driver is listed. It also appears on the printer properties > advanced screen for the driver. However, every time i select printer properties i get the error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed. It seems to be a problem of the error message, not the driver.

The other strange thing is, if i select properties for the printer, and look at at hardware, it shows hp4100 pcl6 (the one i removed) along with usb printer services. What can i do to get windows to recognize this new driver? Or, alternately, if i delete the printer, what can i do to keep windows from reinstalling the default hp4100 pcl6 automatically when i next plug in the printer and let me select the driver i want. I could find no way to override the install.
