Damaged usb port? See if contacts are bent. Bad wifi adapter is possible. Try another wireless device in the port (mouse, keybd) to see if port is okay. Some adapters require that you install software before using, but this should not cause reboots.

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug


To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

Adding to ubuntu desktop


it could be that power isn't sufficient on the USB connection. you might need to plug in your AC adapter.

Also this drive has both FireWire and USB ports on it.

To get it working, make sure that the AC adapter is supplying power, and that USB is connected correctly, then re-boot.

Ubuntu should recognize the drive.

Command line tools that may help are

lsusb

this shows which devices are connected via USB to your computer.

dmesg | less

will help you look for the drive's identification and recognition by the computer, providing information such as vendor strings, capacity, and device assignments.

Good luck.

When I installed my Linksys WUSB54GSC Adapter my computer will not boot up. I have Windows Vista. The computer is new.


Disconnect the usb adapter and see if your computer still boots up. If it does, try connecting the adapter on another usb port and see what happens. If your PC will still not boot up using another usb port, try the adapter on a 2nd computer. If 2nd PC fails to boot up when the adapter is plugged in, most likely the adapter is faulty.

VZW USB760 not being detected by laptop.


i had the same problem. the only way the computer recognizes the 760 is from a fresh re-boot. a few tricks from tech support.
when shutting down, first disconnect, then power off modem from the VZW software. the next time you plug it in the computer then recognize the modum.

a different problem is the signal strength. my old 720 had a much stronger signal in the same location and a faster connect speed. any ideas?

Hard drive doesnt turn on


It appears that your USB hard disk is drawing power that exceeds what the computer's USB port can deliver.
If your USB drive has a power adapter, connect it to your USB drive before you connect it to the computer's USB port.
If your USB drive does not have a power adapter/connector then you need to insert your USB drive into a USB hub that is powered from the mains adapter. Connect this hub to your computer's USB port first and then connect the USB drive into the powered hub.

If none of this works then it is possible that you have a faulty hard drive. If possible test this drive in a computer, use a old computer.
