USB Device connection information

Q: USB Device connection information

please help

i'm using powershell on windows 7 and i want to get the device path from an external usb hub's port to an attached USB device. powershell is great in reporting back a ton of information but it does not show which hub/port that a device is attached to. basically
id' like to get back the same information that UsbTreeView returns but via console so that i can write an automated script that calls the powershell command like below.
powershell -command "& {get-wmiobject -class Win32_USBControllerDevice -computername "LocalHost" -namespace "root\CIMV2" }"

Preferred Solution: USB Device connection information

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am tring to implement "Device Metadata" for Win7. But after installing the devicemetadata-ms file, there is nothing changed in Devices and Printers folder. I chose to install the file by INF file and it certainly shows in Driver Detail of Device Manager without error, even in Event Viewer. Does anyone know that where I can find more installation or debug information inner Windows? I used
Win7 6936 Build, did it support "Device Metadata" function?

If you look at drive properties in the device manager, there is a 'Details' tab with a property called "Location information". It specifies Bus Number, Target ID, and LUN for the hard drive.

I have several drives and I was curious about the physical properties so I made a little diagram starting from the Device manager and cutting and pasting various other infos.

I was curious to see that I had two 'Bus Number 0' in my system - One for the JMicron drive port and one for the Marvell drive port.

Is this normal?

The picture below shows drive name, volumes on it and format type, Bus name, Disk number, and physical device object name:

I recently started having trouble with my DVD writer. this is the error I get " Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)" Everything I've researched about this message says to update my driver.  Did this even bought a new dvd player and it says the same thing.  Any suggestions? Wondering could it possible be a bad cable?  Even changed the port on the motherboard to see if it could be that in the new dvd player.
Thanks for any input.

Hello scissorgal54

The Microsoft version of your exact error -
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19)

If the device is a CD or DVD drive, follow the procedure in Article ID 929461 on the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=192798).
• Restart the computer in Safe Mode, and then select Last Known Good Configuration. This rolls back to the most recent successful registry configuration.

I deal with confidential and classified information. I am aware that simply deleting a file from your computer is not sufficient to remove it completely and have software to erase data as permanently as possible (Eraser 6.0.8 - using the Gutmann eraser method of 35 passes of random and patterned data). I believe this to be sufficient.

What I want to know is how data on an external storage source is managed by a computer when it is not copied to the hard drive. What information is stored and is therefore recoverable?

For example, if I have a picture file on a CD or external hard disc and open it using MS Image viewer (without copying it onto the local hdd) is an image retained in a temporary file somewhere that might be recoverable?

If I simply open up a folder (again on an external storage source) to view the contents in Win Explorer, is a temporary thumbnail log, or filename list, stored on the local hdd somewhere and therefore recoverable?

Is it a different situation with running videos?

If I do a direct burn of files to CD from an external hdd, are the files cached somewhere and again recoverable?

Is opening up a text file in Word a similar issue - I know the filename is stored in the recently opened list, but what other info is recoverable?

etc, etc, I want to know the risks I am exposing myself to so I can manage them accordingly. How do I manage these files on a computer not part of a secured network or should I not bother? I'm not planning on losing my l... Read more

Hi guys, I'm in bit of trouble with my connection right now. I have a Linksys 54G Wireless Router and Westell 6100 modem with Verizon DSL. The downstairs computer recieves connection through a LAN via the modem/router/ethernet and the two upstairs computers recieved a wireless signal. When trying to hook up my Xbox Live account, the IP fails because of trying to connect to BOTH the router and modem. I've researched the problem and found numerous solutions, which haven't worked, probably because I'm configuring something wrong. Anyway, I FINALLY got the Xbox Live IP to work, but the DNS test failed . The exact instructions I got to get the Xbox Live IP to work are found below..... The thing is, now when I followed these instructions, the downstairs computer is NOT connected to the LAN anymore, but rather an PPPOE (WAN Miniport). The two upstairs computers no longer have connection now.

IN A NUT SHELL: I got my Xbox Live IP to be found, the DNS fails (disabling me to play online), but I can only get the Live IP to work when the downstairs computer is connected through PPPOE and the two upstairs don't recieve any signals. When connecting the downstairs back to a LAN connection, it fails to connect to the internet. What I'm trying to ask advice for is... how would I go about setting up all my computers to work AND the Xbox Live to work as well. I've heard things like, "Bridge the connection", copy MAC addresses.... etc etc. Please he... Read more

A friend recently changed ISPs, from Comcast cable to AT&T DSL. She was sent a 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL modem/wireless router w/ 4-port switch built-in. She also has a Linksys WRT54G v8 wireless router w/ 4-port switch.

I put the 2WIRE modem into bridged mode so we could continue using the Linksys router for wireless connectivity. I made sure to disable the wireless support in the 2WIRE router.

I had run into a problem where the Linksys router wouldn't reestablish the PPPoE connection automatically if it was lost. A firmware upgrade to version 8.00.5 seems to have addressed that problem BUT now when the router is connected, it's getting a strange subnet mask. It might not be strange but it's completely unexpected.

The IP address is aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd and the subnet mask is The default gateway IP address is aaa.bbb.fff.ggg, so the assigned IP address and the default gateway are on two completely different subnets but in the same class B IP network.

All of the important machines are able to connect to the Internet ok so I'm not sure if the above subnet mask is anything I should be concerned with.

Any comments or ideas?

Thanks in advance!

The subnet mask of is a valid mask for a PPPoE connection, it denotes that there is only a single allowed address.

Is it possible to get more information on KB3025097?

I am working on an NFS server implementation and I'd like to know whether there is anything that can be done to avoid the issue from the server side. The KB article does not say what was the issue with the NFS client and how the hotfix changed the behavior.
Any additional details about the KB3025097 issue would save me the trouble of trying to tweak the NFS server behavior to see if the Windows NFS client will accept it.

Any hints on what the issue is related to would be very helpful. E.g., is it something about our FSSTAT reply that Windows NFS client doesn't like?

Ultimately we need a solution for all recent Windows versions (Win 7 or later), but any information that applies to any
Windows version would be helpful and valuable.

Looking for help on ad-hoc wi-fi network between Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop running Win 7 Ultimate and Nokia N79 running Symbian S60v3

I want to view live tv on my phone. A USB TV tuner card is connected to laptop which is in turn connected to Satellite DTH receiver. I can see TV in my laptop in Win Media Center and dedicated app provided by USB TV card maker.

I know basics - I have to connect phone and laptop via ad hoc wi fi connection. Run VLC player, select source and use rtsp:// protocol with .sdp extension.

I do all this but yet get unable to connect on real player in phone.

Pls share details about configuration settings of ad hoc connection ipv4 settings etc.

What am i missing?

A:Ad Hoc Connection between Lap and Mobile Device

At best I'll be of minimal help here, as there is so much I do not know about the phone and the special apps you are using.

For the ad-hoc wireless I recommend to get it working unsecured before trying to add encryption. You can leave it as a dynamic connection and then each device will be assigned an APIPA (169.254.x.y). This is a pain, however, because it takes a while for the two devices to get talking to each other and you don't immediately know the IP addresses in case you need to do some troubleshooting. So, I recommend assigning static IPs--suggest on one machine and on the other. Mask

When you think that the network should be working open a Command prompt on the laptop and

ping (assuming the phone was assigned that IP)

If you get replies you know you at least have one way communication.

If you have a non-Windows firewall or security suite on the laptop you may have to configure it for the desired access.

I truly have searched many threads with a variety of search terms and cannot zero in on the exact problem or a potential solution. Here is a concise description:

Old 2002 Dell Dimension 4500 which could not update to Service Pack 2 on Xp Pro. Reformatted and reinstalled operating system. Desktop appears and all functions seem normal except can not connect to Internet. There is an Ethernet connection to the motherboard, and the connection to the net is working (main computer on which I write this is connected via DSL to the net). Device drivers have been installed from CD backup disk, as well as downloaded from Dell support. Have repeated process twice, with same result.

Device Manager does not show an internet connection box; Other devices show four lines, all with yellow question marks. Typing ipconfig /all in the cmd window produces nothing--no error, no listing.

SIW profile program says, under "Network Service", that there is an Ethernet Controller. Clicking on this shows a description with one line saying: Status: "0x01802400 has problem".

Another profile program, Belarc Advisor reports, under "Communications:, the following line: "Network Card MAC 00:00:00:00:00:00".

I am really stuck on how to proceed and solve this problem. Hopefully, with this diagnostic information, some of you more knowledgeable people can help me.

Any advice?
Many thanks, Ken

A:No Networking Connection in Device Manager

I would logically guess that either no drivers are installed for the network adapter, the incorrect drivers are installed or the network adapter itself is not functioning.

I would lean toward you're not having istalled all the motherboard drivers and devices because you have so many question marks in your device manager, which doesn't preclude having a dead network adapter because I don't know if a MAC address would be reported by BELARC regardless of identification of the device or not. If it is supposed to, the "flat line" of zeros probably means its dead, if not, drivers.

Hoping this is the best place to post this.

I recently purchased a gadget called a HD HomeRun Prime from a company called Silicon Dust, Model HDHR3-CC (www.hdhomerun.com). They are located in Plesanton, CA. It is supposed to stream live TV at 1080i to “any screen on your home network” , i.e., “Smart” TVs, computers, media players, game consoles, laptops, Blu-Ray players, Android devices, etc. It has three digital tuners and connects to my Verizon FiOS cable with an Ethernet cable going back to the Wi-Fi router. There is a slot for a Motorola “M-Card” (CableCARD) which I have obtained, installed and activated. Verizon charges $4.99/mo. to rent this card. This is supposed to give you the ability to stream the live TV to three devices (wirelessly) without having to rent additional set-top boxes from Verizon at $11.99/mo. The product literature stated that it was “dlna certified” but did NOT mention that devices intended to be used with it also HAD to be dlna certified or compliant. The only requirement it places on TVs is that they be “Smart.” (See http://www.hdhomerun.com/company/about/ for a more detailed technical explanation.)

Soooooooooooo, I went out and bought two Vizio E241i-A1W TVs. They are “Smart” 1080p technology. The software supplied with the device is installed on an ACER NetBook running Windows 7. This is able to connect to the device, wirelessly through the Wi-Fi router and displays all of the channels (including premium) I am able to see on the TV... Read more

A:Vizio TV connection to HDHomeRun device

The two methods would be via app/software or DLNA.

DLNA support is a feature, and isn't supported on all models/brands. If it's supported, it should be listed in the specs. I didn't see it mentioned in the User Manual for your TV.

If Silicon Dust states it won't work, then it sounds like you are out of luck. If there was a work around, or even a solution that works on some models, they would be the ones to know.

I was looking for a supported TV list on their site, but couldn't find one.

A:Widowview Scanner Connection Device ?

Welcome to TSG

It would be better to just get a new card if you can’t get the old one to work. A Tekram DC315U is more than sufficient for any scanner and sells for about $25 in the US. It is for a standard mini 50 pin SCSI connector.

A USB to SCSI adapter wouldn’t work as well and would probably be pricier. You can’t just get an adapter cord with SCSI on one end and USB on the other if that is what you were asking.

I encountered a problem with my internet connection and I believe it may have to do with DNS. I can't access the internet at all on my laptop, neither Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox work. I ran a diagnostics test and received this message: "The remore device or resource won't accept the connection." More details state that "the device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not set up to accept connections on port 'The World Wide Web service (HTTP).' I've searched through many forums and tried countless possible solutions:

Resetting my computer
Power cycling the modem
Resetting Internet browser settings
Flushing the DNS via cmd
Releasing and renewing the IP address (Note: cmd is unable to renew the IP because it fails to connect to the DHCP server)
Disabling Windows Firewall
Checking for proxy settings that may be checked

I'm using a wired connection that goes directly to the modem, no router. An interesting thing to note is that I am able to connect to the internet via mobile hotspot on my Android phone. I've already contacted my ISP (Comcast) and they believe it's a computer related issue but through my trials, this doesn't seem to be the case. It looks like a DNS issue.

This isn't exactly a Windows7 problem, but I don't know where else to ask it.

I've purchased a small (single 2TB) network assessable storage unit - a Western Digital MyBookLive. I'm having trouble connecting the MBL device to the LAN. My LAN config is consists of an Actiontec GT701-WG router/DSL modem/ WiFi access point, a LinkSys 5-port ethernet switch, a Win7 desktop PC ethernet-connected to the router through the switch, a wireless-connected XP desktop PC, and a wireless-connected Vista laptop.

The NAS device supports UPnP so I can connect it directly to the router or any of 3 computers on the LAN - a Win7 desktop, a Vista laptop, and an XP desktop. The device is visible (but not necessarily usable) in each of thse cases. However, if I connect the NAS device to the switch nothing sees it. I've tried multiple ports on the switch (including ports that work for the PC) and multiple ethernet cables. Nothing works.

The NAS device supports 10M/100M/GB ethernet. The router and switch switch support 10/100MB (although the router reports it has a 10MB connection to my PC so maybe one of these devices doesn't actually support 100MB). When directly connected a PC or laptop the NAS device's ethernet status LED is green. When directly connected to the router it shows yellow. (I may have those colors reversed.) When connected to the switch the status LED is off. I suspect the color is an indication of the connection speed, and no speed has been determined whe... Read more

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. I need to use wireless keyboard. When I use bluetooth device it can detect my keyboard but it is unable to stablish the connection with keyboard. I can't understand what is the problem. The required driver is installed successfully. How can I fix this problem?

A:How to stablish connection with wireless device

This is not really a networking question. So you may want to move this to the appropriate forum.

But you say it is Bluetooth. Please post the make and model of your computer and the make and model of the keyboard.

Although there are Bluetooth keyboard most wireless keyboard use a USB receiver and not Bluetooth. So we need to know what make and model to make sure it is Bluetooth.

Is there a way to monitor all device's internet connection into a log ? (computer, laptop, tablets and phone ... all in one)

Deeper explanation :

because I do not like AT&T DSL 5M internet provider, but that is the only company in this area that has it.
(no Hughes dish etc ... no)

anyway, I am getting sick of disconnecting and reconnecting ... not sure if that DSL is fluctuating ... or along the DSL lines thru houses/business re-wiring DSL ... or etc etc etc ...

how can I know whether is it guaranteed disconnected/Reconnected by computer or DSL or etc ?

I was playing a 8 ball tournament online and lost one match dues disconnecting (no, hack/cheat involved because I played on mobile)

only thing I noticed is that AT&T cellular data still connected forever without getting disconnected ... but I can not use data plan because of the limited bandwidth/data usage.

so, I tried nearly everything I can think of and researched hard ... and tested it ... I still can not find an issue, even DSL guy came here to check it out ... nothing's wrong here ... BS ... there is something, somewhere that is causing disconnecting and reconnecting ...

already did flush dns, clear cache, etc etc ...

I just need networking monitor log because I am can not watch all 6 devices and test it when disconnecting occurs ... I thought that is a great idea to pinpoint even further down, for example : laptop #2, tablet #1 and this computer gets disconnecting reconnecting when ... Read more

Hi all, I've been dealing with this problem for a few weeks now, I moved into a new apartment, got my internet set up, and I've noticed my new PC doesn't get the same connection speeds as all the rest of my devices, or my roommates devices. I'm running Windows 10, I've tried both a wired and wireless connection, both limited to around ~20mbps, when I'm paying for 150mbps, and every other device, ie. my phone, PlayStation, my roommates PC, and his phone, all connect consistently over both wired and wireless at 130-150mbps. I've tried uninstalling my AV software (despite following all steps to uninstall, Norton still has files in my ProgramData I can't get rid of, and TSG SysInfo still detects it as my active, enabled AV), setting my TCP/IP stack and WINSOCK to default, as recommended in another forum I found, and updating my drivers. I've read to start up in Safe mode and check the connection speed from there, but I find that I can't get my browser to open in Safe mode to try, and I'm unaware how to check it otherwise. Any help would be appreciated, I'm losing my mind a little

I've been having problems with my 2 laptops dropping the connection to our wireless for the past couple of years.
At first we thought the our wi-fi router was dying, so we bought another one, set it up the same way, and then experienced the same problem which is the connection will drop, we'll have to reboot the wireless router and then we can connect....and we keep having to do this with the 2 laptops we have. Our 1 PC that is connected via ethernet to the same wireless router has never had any problems. SO I am not on my 3rd wireless router now, this time a D-link WBR-2310 and am just sick and tired of having to keep rebooting the router every time the connection drops.

Both of our laptops on Windows XP, SPK 2 and both configured to use the Intel-Pro-Set wireless configuration utility as we thought maybe the windows management option was the problem.

The Wireless router is set to Broadcast our SSID and is using the "Enable the WPA wireless security" option with TKIP. We have "Enable extended Range mode" selected. DHCP Server is turned on.
So what can I do??? Obviously it can't be the router as this our 3rd one.
Please help.

I set up ICS on my laptop so that I can use my Xbox 360 in the living room. Everything runs fine, however when I run a network diagnostic test on the 360 it tells me that it only has "moderate" connectivity to the NAT.

When I have the 360 hooked up directly to the router setting up the DMZ for the 360 is no problem. However, when the 360 is set up in the living room and running off of the ICS I can't set it up as a DMZ because my router only allows a DMZ to be set up as a hardcoded 192.168.1.xxx format. Since the address assigned to the 360 does not follow the 192.168.1.xxx format I need to be able to assign the DMZ to an address that doesn't maintain the 192.168.1.xxx convention. Is there any way of doing this either by reconfiguring my WRT54G router in some way or by some other networking trickery?

Thanks in advance.

I have had this camera for awhile now (Olympus Sp-800uz) and been plugging it in to my laptop (Sony Vaio) to upload photos regulary. But now when I plug it in after a minute or so it comes up with a message on the camera's display that there is no connection.
I tried plugging in my camera to a different computer and it worked fine so it's not the USB or device so I think there's something wrong with the laptop, but i can not decipher what.
I have tried using several different driver programns to try and find the problem but they have not been able to find anything.
Any ideas?

I have an HP dx6500 with the service tag dx6667cl. I'm running Vista ultimate 64 bit. My problem is I can't connect to my home network. It has a wireless card in it but, I don't have a wireless access point. It is the only network device listed in the device manager. I have tried opening the bios but there is no way to enable/disable the integrated nic. I was not able to find any of the integrated devices in the bios. I tried flashing the bios to the newest version. That did not help any.

How do I get Vista to see the wired nic?

Win 7 Home Premium running On Dell Studio 1558 laptop (Intel i5 with 4G Ram).

About 50% of the time when I plug a usb device in (happens with different devices, different ports) I get a total system crash - not truly a BSOD here since it just looks like something is writing to graphics memory (odd patterns/colors on screen, etc). When I pull the USB device - the system reboots and comes up as normal (and sometimes will take the device that was just inserted fine!). Zip file with dump and perfmon attached (I hope)

A:BSOD - Windows 7 on USB device connection

Hi -

The 2 BSODs both name Acronis as the probable cause -


snapman.sys Sat Aug 15 04:42:00 2009 (4A8674D8) - Acronis Snapshots Manager

Remove Acronis.

I would also recommend that you update ATI video drivers -


atikmdag.sys Wed Nov 18 14:14:44 2009 (4B0447A4)

ATI video --> http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

Remove McAfee Internet Security --> http://jcgriff2.com/A-V_Removal_Tool...e_Removal.html

If BSODs persist, run the Driver Verifier

I had been using the IE well until yesterday I cannot open any web page. I'm sure the network works fine, because I can receive/send email using outlook. I thought maybe the IE had some problem, so removed the IE 7, downloaded IE 8 using another PC, then installed the IE 8, but it still cannot open any web page. I checked the Network Connections, found "Unavailable - device missing" under MSN Connection manager.

What should I do to solve this problem?

I used Microsoft's tool that tells you what the problem is and it came up with "the remote device or resource won't accept the connection". Ive gone through many different steps to find an answer to the problem and still unable to access any other website, im using a friends computer to hopefully get an answer to this issue. The operating system is Win 7 on a Toshiba Laptop. Thanks for the help.

ASRock SATA III PCIe Card [AR-SATA3-CARD] - $29.00 : PC Case Gear

A:Will the Pc1x1 connection limit the speed of this Device

It really depends on the drive(s) you are connecting to it. The PCIE-1x slot if (1.0) will have a single direction max rate of aprox 266MB/s and if (2.0) 532MB/s.

This will be fine for 7200rpm Hard Disks but if you were planning on one or more 500MB/s SSD's then the bus-width would limit you.

The devices only claim to be compatible with a PCI-E x1 (2.0) interface.

I have a very annoying thing that seems to have popped up in the last 2 days or so. I installed Win 10 on my custom built computer about a week ago and it has been working just fine. Then about two days ago I started getting the sound that it makes when you connect a USB drive to the port or some other device. It goes non-stop, sounding off every 15-20 seconds. I checked my device manager and nothing is changing there. There is something that pops up in the tray in the lower right but it disappears so fast that I can't see what it is. I have no idea what is causing this but it's driving me crazy. If anyone else knows what might be causing this, I would be most interested in hearing how to resolve it.

EDIT: resolved. I had a usb hard drive hooked up in back that I didn't know was connected.
