How to solve USB device not recognized ?

Every time I insert a USB device, it comes up with the message: USB device not recognized . Any solutions? I have absolutely no USB's in my slots. Thus I cannot insert anything in including to sync my mobile phone. I've already tried resetting the SMC which did not work.

Different USB port. There are usually 3 or 4 of them. If you can, format the USB drive (if you have nothing on it or already have copies of what is on it). It will take 10 seconds, but will wipe all data. It should be recognized then.

For the Samsung i760, disable "advanced network functionality" in the "USB to PC" setting by uncheckmarking it. Then Vista and WMDC will detect the i760 properly...

SOURCE: ''USB: Function not allowed''

Are you dragging and dropping your files into the RECEIVED folder first? If not, you need to. From there, the phone should open up the files.

Did this suddenly start to occur? Were they working before? If so, it is very simple - shut down computer, remove the battery and unplug any power source, wait a couple of minutes and reassemble and power up. Wala! I read all kinds of complicated instructions, started with the simple, and problem solved.

My Zoom H2 recorder is not recognized by my new computer with Windows 7. What can I do to solve this?


No solution, just a workaround. I have used the H2 with firmware 1.90 successfully with Windows 7, but lately the H2 is not recognized anymore. Built-in obsolescence maybe?
Anyway, I just take out the card and put it in a card reader. It is faster also. Card readers are cheap.

My noteoook got the problem with port usb


Since you have these many problems with your laptop, Firstly try to reformat the system and reinstall all the neccessary drivers. Many times reformatting works well as your OS might malfunction when you have virus or malwares in your laptop.

OTHER SOLUTIONS
a. for USB:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. The Device Manager window opens.
  2. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  3. Right-click a USB Root Hub in the list, and then click Properties. The USB Root Hub Properties dialog box is displayed.
  4. Click the Power Management tab.
  5. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each USB Root Hub in the list.
  7. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.

    Windows XP recognizes the new device.
  8. Close the Device Manager window.
b. SD CARD
Your 1GB kingston card might have virus. use a card reader and reformat the card for future use.

It can be quite frustrating. I've heard that older computers are more likely to have the USB device not recognized message.

My U3 Smart SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB USB Drive Not Recognized


We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.
