Ipod Classic (80gb) Usb Device Not Recognized


I have recently upgraded to a new laptop (acer aspire 5738g) running windows 7. I have successfully transfered my itunes library across and have installed itunes (x64) which is running fine. When i plug my ipod classic (80gb) into a usb port i get a message saying 'usb device not recognized'. I have managed to get it working once but when i did, i got an error message saying 'this drive could run faster' or something along those lines. I have tried other usb devices and all seem to work fine so i'm assuming its the drivers for the ipod or a compatibility issue with 7 and itunes.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, have reinstalled the usb drivers and have scoured the net for a fix but wo is still me! I have waited patiently for a fix from either microsoft or apple but as yet nothing. It seems that this is a wide spread problem. Does anyone have any ideas as what was once a slightly annoying problem is turning into a right royal pain in the a$$.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Intermittent Usb Device Not Recognized Problem

I have a dell precision m6500 laptop in a docking station with a usb keyboard and mouse attached running win 7 pro 64-bit. Most of the time, the machine works fine without any issues but occasionally, windows goes into this tight loop where every few seconds, it pops up the dreaded usb device not recognized balloon-even though i have not added/changed and usb device on the machine. I have tried disabling the device, uninstalling the driver, etc. But nothing i do seems to correct the problem. Please help because this is driving me crazy.

Dell Webcam - Usb Device Is Not Recognized

My new laptop had been running great for the first week or so, but today problems started occurring. Right now i'm having problems with the built in webcam, the screen is black and i'm not sure if the mic is picking up sound or not. I keep getting a warning that the "usb device is not recognized" even though i don't have a usb plugged in, so i'm under the assumption that this problem relates to my webcam issues.

It comes up almost every five seconds and is really bothering me. I have also seen a message come up that i have a problem with my dell dock. I don't know what this means or what the problem is, but i know that it probably is important and possibly relates to my other issues. I'm new to the whole windows 7 operating system because i've been using xp for years so if you can walk me through what to do that would be great.

No Ipod Touch Device Driver For Win7

I recently got an ipod touch 3rd generation, but cannot get it connected to my computer which has the windows 7 operating system. I have searched all over the internet (including the apple website and this website) for an answer, but been unsuccessful, so this is my last hope. The problem is that i can find no drivers for the ipod, even though i (as i have previously stated) have searched all over the internet and have also troubleshooted my device and been into device manager etc.

When downloading i have also opted to do it so that i can see all the programs included in the download of itunes and quicktime (the package that is supposed to include the device driver), and have seen the device driver part of the download. However, when in the middle of its installation, it fails, and says that a problem occurred with the device- even though nothing even happened to the device, even the screen hadn't changed.

It also often connects and dis-contects without anything happening. And, the really strange thing is, is that everything works perfectly on a laptop i have which runs on the windows vista operating system. I hope that one of you experts will be able to aid me in this problem, or even solve it. I am aware that many other people windows 7 have this problem.

(I obviously connect it via usb. Nothing is wrong with the usb connection as it does appear on screen for a certain amount of time. I feel my problem is because of the drivers that seem to be unavailable)

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Usb Drive & Ipod

This has been really bothering me. Windows 7 works perfectly with my old programs after my upgrade. Only when i plug in my usb external drive and ipod touch, ipod video. It does not recognize it. I tried device manager and looking for it there, it does not show up. When i go on safe mode, "usb mass storage" shows up but i cannot update cuz it keeps saying it already has the best driver installed. When i look at "properties" it says there is no driver installed.

With my ipods, i tried stopping and restarting ipod service, apple mobile device, itunes. I tried reinstalling a newly downloaded copy of itunes at least 4 times. That does not work.

There is a registry fix for this on windows xp titled "windows xp cannot detect a usb flash drive, an apple ipod, or an external hard disk drive" but does not have one for windows 7. The xp fix even has a download fix for fixing the registry. Is there one also for windows 7. I am going through the trouble of installing virtual pc and xp mode just to use my devices.

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.

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 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.

Usb Drive Not Recognized After Reboot

I have a windows 7 64-bit system. I connected my maxtor 500gb usb drive while the pc was on and it recognized the drive using the default windows driver. Seagate, which owns maxtor, does not have a 64 bit driver for this drive. Seagate and microsoft say the drive should work with the windows driver. It was working beautifully.

Then i re-booted my system. Upon windows re-start, the drive came up as "usb device not recognized". In device manager it is a yellow icon next to "unknown device". I removed the usb cable and re-plugged it to no avail. I then removed the drive's power cord and plugged it back in. The drive was instantly recognized again.

What is happening on a re-boot to mess up the usb connection? How can this be resolved? I don't want to have to pull the power cord on every re-boot.

Usb Hard Drives Are Not Recognized

My computer crashed 4 days ago and i needed to replace the mother board. During the process i was talked into upgrading from vista to windows 7. I spent the last 2 days uploading all my programs and up grading those that didn't work in windows 7.

I have a wd passport 160 gb usb hd that did not work when i plug it into the usb port. I called western digital support, thinking i needed a new driver. They told me i would need to buy a new portable drive as they were not supporting my passport. Everything works in my computerís usb ports, flash drives, and phone. The only thing that does not work is my brand new portable drive i just bought (hp 320 gb) and my old passport. Is there anyone out there who can tell me what is wrong?† Both drive work in 2 other computers both running xp. The wd drive worked well in the old vista computer.

I have called western digital and hp support. They tell me that the drives are built into windows 7. I have been surfing all night; i canít find anyone who has a fix for the problem. I ran a system scan looking for hardware drivers from the microsoft web site. I have installed window 7 upgrade advisor and ran the scan twice. I've check for compatibility on the microsoft site which says the dive is supported i only need to plug it in and it should work. The computer wonít even recognize or acknowledge the drive is plug in. I have tried different plugs it still does not work.

Error Code 43 Usb Not Recognized

I have a toshiba satellite l305. Windows 7 was installed in oct 09. Everything has been working fine until today when a message "usb device not recognized" appeared along with a note of a error code 43. None of the ports appear to work. Previously they had been used for a mouse, my blackberry (including syncing with outlook)†and a palm handheld. I have uninstalled all usb ports and restarted the computer but the same messages occur.

Usb Drives Have Power, But Not Recognized

Here's my problem: i've got an asus ul50vt laptop with windows 7 64-bit.

My usb drivers which until recently worked just fine have stopped recognizing anything. I know there is power because my flash drive lights up, but i can't access either of them and my ipod is not recognized either. I have tried to uninstall the devices so my laptop would re-recognise them, but that hasn't worked because the uninstallation process through the device manager seems to take so long it literally does nothing.

I'm at a standstill and i need these three drives working. What else can i try?

External Hdd Not Recognized By Usb Port

I have an external hard drive that is not being recognized by all of my usb ports on my laptop. When i connect to my third port, the computer recognizes the device and i am able to access the files on it. But, when i try to hook it up to the other two ports (located on the back of my laptop) the hd is not recognized. It receives power, however, because the power light comes on. Whats even weirder is that other devices, like my mouse and my ipod, are recognized by the back ports.

When i plug the external hd into these back ports, nothing happens, no "unrecognized device" messages or anything. I have tried a number of fixes, like reinstalling the usb drivers and updating the external hd's driver (its a toshiba). I don't know why the external hd is being recognized by one particular usb port and not the others! Any ideas?

Usb Flash Hard Drives Not Recognized

Since purchasing my computer, i've been able to use the various usb drives for other hardware such as wireless internet, hauppage tv reception, and wireless mouse/keyboard. However, any attempt at reading an external flash drive (then larger external hard drive) on all of the ports the drive is not successful. The drive appears in the device manager and is appropriately named, it is also listed in the disk management window as disc 5 (underneath the various sd drive ports and whatnot-one of which appears to be assigned the name of usb external hard drive when in fact it is not).

Upon attempt to reassign a drive path/letter the message appears that "disk management console view not up to date", but restarting does no good. Dell support is not supportive and claim it is a software problem because the ports work for other devices.

Ide Hard Drive (usb 2.0) Not Recognized At Computer Startup

Ide hard drive in external enclosure (usb 2. 0) not recognized by windows 7 at computer startup, but recognized if it is rebooted after windows 7 is done loading. I have a western digital 500gb pata (ide) hard drive in an enclosure. I leave the enclosure on at all times since it has a cooling fan.

However, if for whatever reason i need to reboot my system, windows 7 never recognizes†this†drive unless†i turn off and on my enclosure. Once i reboot my enclosure, windows 7 recognizes the drive and tries to autoplay. I would like w7 to recognize my drive at startup so that i don't have to reboot my enclosure every time i reboot my computer. What can†i do to fix this?†

Usb Flash Drive Driver Install Failed / Not Recognized

I plugged in a flash drive to my laptop the other day and i got the plug and play message, it downloaded the driver but the installation failed. Now windows 7 will not even recognize that the flash drive is plugged in or try to install the driver again. The flash drive still works on my main computer just fine and other usb devices including other flash drivers work just fine on this laptop. Device manager and computer management under administrative tools do not register it as being plugged in either.

I could not find a way to check if maybe the driver did install and was corrupted. Is there anything i can do?

Usb Flash Drive Error - Volume Does Not Contain Recognized File System

I plugged in my usb flash drive into a computer using windows 7. It always prompts me to scan and fix or cancel. I canceled every time, but i got annoyed with it popping up every time, so i told it to scan and fix. A loading screen came up so i patiently waited. After completion it asks to format my usb flash drive. I can't format it though because i have homework files and all my other personal files on there. So i canceled the format, but every time i plug it into my computer it asks t format it. I even plugged it into a computer running on windows xp and it wanted to format it.

When i try to run it without formatting it it says, "e: is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted. " My question is, what did windows 7 do to my flash drive and how do i recover my data?

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!
