USB drive no longer recognizes my iPod

Q: USB drive no longer recognizes my iPod

I have an HP desktop running XP. I've been using the most accessible USB drive to plug in my iPod. Yesterday, I used that drive to connect my new Palm Centro to download data. Now, the USB drive doesn't recognize my iPod. (I can use another drive--it's just not so convenient.)

I know there has to be an easy way to get the drive back to the way it was.

How?

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: USB drive no longer recognizes my iPod

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.)

The CD/DVD drive used to work, but now doesn't. I don't know of anything changed since them. No drive is recognized and I can't open the drive once Vista takes over. I can open it while it's booting.

I searched the forums and found something about deleting the upper and lower filters in the registry and followed that. My registry had three "Control Sets", ControlSet001, ControlSet003, and CurrentControlSet. I was able to delete the upper filters in sets 1 and 3, but there was no upper filter in CurrentControlSet. None had lower filters.

That slightly changed the problem. Previously the CD activity LED stayed off, but now it's always on. However, the drive still doesn't open, and nothing is recognized. I went to the device manager and I didn't see any optical drive.

And one other interesting thing - When the laptop wakes up from screensaver, the CD/DVD drive starts spinning and won't stop. Still can't open the drive, and it's still not recognized.

Any ideas on what to do next?

My computer no longer recognizes the cd drive/burner on my dektop PC, and I think the problem is related to a removeable USB flash drive.

It's a really old Compaq Presario with an added cd burner(drive d now), and the original cd rom(drive e). My PNY usb flash drive installed some software(drivers I think) when I 1st ran it, and shows up as drive f.

Worked fine a couple of times, but then the lights went out on the cd burner(drive d), it would not open, and it didn't even show up on "My Computer" either.

Searched on internet awhile, and read something about a flash drive problem, so I removed the flash drive from the USB slot, restarted the computer, and both cd drives re-appeared, and worked fine, as long as I removed the flash drive, and turned computer off after burning cd. But I forgot, and left it on for several hours, and now even when I remove the flash drive, and restart computer the 2 cd drives don't show up on "my computer". The cd rom(drive e) light comes on, and will open, but the burner(drive d) light is off, and will not open. Neither drive registers on "My Computer". The flash drive still reads as drive f, even with no drive d, or e.(lol)

Suggestions anyone?
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron 531 which has the Dvd+rw/cd drive. I recently noticed it only recognizes cd's and not dvd. I have not done a restore or made any other hardware changes, so I have no clue what the problem could be. Does anyone have any ideals?
 

A:Dell Inspirion 531/ No longer recognizes dvd drive

Try uninstalling the device in Device Manager (right-click the device and choose uninstall) then restart Windows which will re-install the driver.

If no change, one of the drive's lasers may have failed (a cd/dvd drive has two lasers, one for dvd & one for cd). In that case the drive will have to be replaced.

Dear All,

Forgive me if this has been addressed- if so just link me , thanks

I had a computer built for me, included in this was a Pioneer BD internal drive, which worked well with two different softwares (Burnaware & PavTube Bluray ripper).

My issue is that the computer no longer recognizes the drive, I have done some research but cannot find a definitive answer. The "microsoft fix" link I tried wont work as it cant see it and it also does not appear in my device manager. I cannot remember when I last used the drive so I cannot even hazard a guess if I were to try and go back to a restore point.
It powers up as I can open it and it "accepts" a disc, but thats it.

any help anyone can offer is appreciated


Regards David

My WD Elements 1.5 TB USB 2.0 external hard drive is no longer being recognized by Vista. It will not appear in either the system tray or when I click Start>Computer.

Below are the specs for my desktop computer:

Dell Studio XPS 435 MTIntel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz8.0 GB RAMVista Home Premium 64-bit1 TB hard driveDual Dell 2408WFP Digital monitorsATI Radeon HD4670 video card 512 MB (one card only)All my drivers are updated (using Microsoft Device Manager)
When I plug the WD hard drive into my computer nothing happens, even if I give it 5 or more minutes to try to find it. When I plug this same external hard drive into my Windows 7 laptop, it is recognized quickly, leading me to believe the hard drive itself is fine.

I unsuccessfully tried to access this drive on my desktop computer though ?Computer Management? by: Start>R-click Computer>Manage>Disk Management. There I see ?Disk 0,? which includes my C and D drives, but nothing else.

When I plug the external hard drive into the computer?s USB port, I hear my computer make the normal ?ding? that accompanies the plugging of an external device. Also, the external hard drive begins to hum.
I recently ran CCcleaner and don?t know if that was the source of my problem. I would try a System Restore, but that function has not worked on my computer for a long time.

Any advice is appreciated.

I have used a desktop with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit for years; on a windows based network. Previously the desktop would print to a HP P2035 laser jet and a Canon copier. The Canon is connected through an Ethernet connection, no problems printing. The HP is connected through a USB port. One day, with no certain changes made, the HP no longer would print. I tried to update the driver, but all attempts failed. I removed the device and tried to reinstall the software but the printer was only recognized as an "other devices" in the device manager. I connected the printer to another computer in the network and I can print to the HP through the network from my desktop.

I have two desktops (primary & secondary) on my desk. I would like to print to a printer on my desk. Connected through a USB port on the secondary computer is a HP P2015d. I have attempted to print to the P2015d through the network; however, when I select the listed printer, a pop up appears saying "Checking Windows Update. This may take a while..." And after a while I receive a message saying "No driver found" and additional information for installing a driver.

My PC has 4 usb ports in the back. In one of the ports I had attached a Staples 7-port USB hub. All of the 7 ports on the hub have been in use and have worked properly for quite some time... until last week.

I tried rebooting, disconnecting and reconnecting, the best I can get is "USB Device Not Recognized." I thought maybe the hub had just died. So I bought another identical hub. I then bought a cheaper GE one (at BJ's Wholesale Club) later that day, with the intention of bringing back the Staples one if that still didn't work. The both have a power adapter as well.

Anyway, I tried the Staples one first. Still nothing. Then I went to the GE one... the same result. Finally, I had a non-powered one that just split it into 3 ports and tried plugging my mouse into the other end... again, nothing.

I tried using different ports in the back of my PC. It didn't matter. I attached my mouse directly to the back of the PC in various ports and it worked, however several other peripherals that were attached to the hub, iPod, scanner, etc, also were no longer recognized. Not sure yet if that is also true for everything that was connected, as it is a real hassle to access all the wires back there!

Hey everybody, I am having a slight problem with my computer. A few minutes ago, I just turned on my computer and everything was normal (all the start-up programs loaded) but for some reason I couldn't open Firefox or any other programs. So I closed a usual culprit, "explorer.exe." Before anybody jumps on me for closing explorer, let me explain. My computer is not very good. For some reason, explorer sometimes will lag horribly or freeze up my computer and the only way I can make it function normally again is to close explorer. However, when trying to run it from the Task Manager, Windows gave me an error, saying it could not recognize "explorer.exe." It gave me that "select program from list/use web service to find out!" box. I was very confused. So after sitting there with no way to open Explorer, I just restarted. Same thing happens again, only this time, none of the usual start-up programs even load. I get some errors like "Cannot open *.ink Use webservice to identify filetype," etc. And the icons for exe programs don't even show up. They have those little data ones.

Me, being the genius that I am, tried to open a exe program, and it said "Use webservice/use list." I was all like I clicked "use the webservice" thinking that it would just say "Cannot open Firefox.exe," but for some reason FireFox opened.

But it still doesn't run when I click on it in the start menu or anything..

HELP.

A:Windows no longer recognizes *.exe, *.ink, etc. HELP!

There may be no real problem with the .lnk extension since the error is probably being generated when the .exe tries to run.

Try running this .exe file association fix. That fact that the web service opened Firefox indicates that the exe's still run when called from an associated program, so the file within this zip should run regedit correctly.

After nearly two years of running with few problems, suddenly my system does not recognize the HD.

I had some serious issues when I installed XP SP3 when it came out but was able to restore to an earlier configuration and uninstall it. I read that AMD processors had issues with the update so I did not install it - thought Microsoft would release a new version that was AMD friendly eventually.

Now I'm having errors that remind me of that event however I'm not able to boot successfully even when I try to choose the last configuration that worked option on boot up.

I am able to boot with the XP installation CD in the CD ROM. I am able to get into the Bios. Neither option recognizes any hard drive installed.

Any ideas on what I can do to get the bios to recognize the HD? I have not changed any physical settings inside the computer (jumpers, cables, etc.).

I'm running XP SP2 (unless SP3 somehow managed to install itself when I wasn't looking) on system I built. CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core, 1G memory.

to connect a cable to the router -
on the router you may see a number of connections on the back - and labeled 1-4 - plug one end of the cable into one of those LAN connections
the other end will only fit into one socket on the laptop - so find that and plug in

now it should connect

Post back the results in device manager
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC.

Does that work on all your ports? If so, then from your description it appears your problem is that your camera is not recognised. Is that correct?

Several weeks ago, my computer apparently crashed. I lost tons of data and nearly all of a novel I'm writing. With the help of a tech and a download of Bit Torrent to recover my files, I was able to see that many were splattered all over the place in unreadable formats with file extentions that I am still trying to recover.

Programs aren't operating in default manner. Trying to use my 'plug & play" webcam comes to an error message of " Can't find VFW Driver". I have no way of reprogramming without a CD rom, and can't locate a Dytex driver site without the retail monkeys jumping on my back.

Any idea how to get my computer to wake up?

Thanks

A:Computer No longer recognizes some programs!

Well, using torrents to recover is a bad idea - might want to find a new tech.

Stop using your computer ASAP - recoverable files will only be overwritten with use. There are several file recovery apps out there that you can use - such as www.dtidata.com/recover_it_all.htm . You'll need a second machine, and slave your hard drive in that to run the recovery.

Hi all,

After a vacuum-cleaner-related power failure (and an attempt at doing a system restore to an earlier restore point that failed), my Dell Precision T1600 now boots into Windows with several overlapping error messages, and the keyboard and mouse don't work.

"Don't work" means that moving the mouse has no effect, and clicking the buttons and rolling the scroll wheel have no effect. None of the keys on the keyboard do anything - no effect from Windows key, Alt-Tab, Ctrl-Alt-Del. The caps lock key doesn't even toggle the caps lock light -it stays on.

I also tried a PS/2 kbd and PS/2 mouse. No difference - they don't work as described above.

Plugging in a Dell wireless mouse receiver results in the message "Device driver software was not successfully installed" popping up from the system tray.

I can press F12 after powerup (on the PS/2 keyboard - may need a BIOS update) and go into the boot options and BIOS setup. Both sets (usb and ps/2) of mouse and kbd work fine here. But as soon as I start Windows they die.

This includes starting Windows in safe mode.

I can boot from a USB Win 7 installer disk, and the mouse and kbd work fine there. I've tried the various system repair options, but they don't help.

Startup Repair doesn't think there's anything wrong.
System Restore doesn't see any restore points.
System Image Restore - I have no image backups.
Memory Diagnostic - passes the test

From the Command Prompt, I have successfully run CHKDSK D: /R. ... Read more

A:Windows no longer recognizes kbd and mouse - can't fix without them!

Run SURT: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

Once that completes, run sfc /scannow again, see if fixes things now.

If nothing else works, you can do a upgrade install of Windows 7 to Windows 7. This will leave your current install under windows.old.

A better choice would be to backup all your data and do a clean install.

I had my laptop (HP dv6-2152mr) connected to my LCD TV via hdmi cable, and was able to view material from the laptop on my TV. However, all of a sudden, without anything having been moved or disturbed, the laptop no longer recognizes that there is another monitor present. When I go into display there are no choices to select another monitor other than the laptop's monitor. Suggestions please to get thighs back to being able to view material on the laptop through the TV's monitor.

A:Laptop no longer recognizes another monitor's presence?

I'm having trouble finding the specs on that particular model can you post a pic of your device manger showing the display device please? I would start with reinstalling your video driver. Your hardware have kicked the bucket though.

Started about 2 days ago. When I plug my phone into my computer (USB) it does not start iTunes. When I manually starts iTunes, it does not "see" the iPhone.
Running Windows 8.1 64 bit.
I uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes. It did not help.
Every time I plug in the pone (to the computer) it asks me to "trust" the computer. It should only do this once and then remember.

out of nowhere, in the middle of the day (with it on) it magically loses connection, and completely loses recognition of an ethernet port, and says that needs to be installed with drivers? even though i've already updated them several times before this happened....now the option to manually create a wireless network no longer shows...and i think i have to move my computer next to my router and directly connect with ethernet (i'm running wireless) and install updates all over again....but i have a huge monitor and enormous desktop, such a pain to do this...any suggestions?

I have a brand new notebook.  For the first week or so I had no problems with the external Dell monitor being recognized.  Now the HP won't recognize the display.  I have tried it with my old laptop and everything works fine.  I had an issue last week with the speakers (on the laptop) not playing music.  I'm beginning to wish I'd never bought this.  Lots of aggravation for a lot of money.    Has anyone else had a problem with the monitor suddenly not recognized?  Thanks for any help.

I'm using XP and for some reason, my Photo Editor no longer works properly. When I try to open a picture, I get an error message that PE does not recognize the file format. I can't re-install, as I no longer can find the install disc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Old women and computers do not make a good pair.

A:Photo Editor No Longer Recognizes File Format

What is the name of your Photo Editor program? What type of file extension are you trying to open? (ex) .JPG, .BMP, .TIF etc? If you right click the file and choose Properties, it will tell you the
file extension. If it is not one of the ones listed in the link, then do a Google search for the extension and the program that opens that particular extension.

So this is a two in one problem. I know most people tend to have this issue but I couldn't find a fix that would work for me.

Basically, I had a monitor for a while that had built in speakers. It broke. So I bought one that didn't and just used my Urbanears headphones that I used to use for my phone. Audio worked fine forever, mic worked fine as well. I don't have a webcam but I was able to receive video calls too. Then I updated Skype and now Skype cannot recognize my sound card, it says I have no microphone installed either.

I check my system's audio devices and when the headphones are plugged into the right jack on the front of my tower, the sound works. Unplug it and put it in the left, then the sound is gone but the mic registers as being plugged in. This never used to happen. I'm not sure what happened but I really need to find a fix to it.

Can anyone help?

My stock Dell Inspiron 3531 laptop (circa December 2014) suddenly no longer recognizes external monitors connected via HDMI.
I have been using a couple of external monitors (one at a time, of course) for as long as I can remember.
The changes I have recently made are an upgrade of the BIOS from A01 to A03 (in an attempt to fix a battery issue). And, of course, monthly MS security updates.
I have been running Windows 8.1 for a long time (initially shipped with Window 8).
To rule out the BIOS upgrade, I back-flashed to A01 (and still could not get the external monitor to work).
To rule out monitor and cable issues, I connected them to another laptop (no issues).
My graphic card is Intel(R) HD Graphics w/ details as follows (ac. to GPU-Z tool):

Hi,
My Outlook 2003, all at once, no longer recognizes eml files, i.e., mail forwarded as an eml file attachment. I've run the repair/reinstall function three times, no fix. As my Outlook is part of the Office 2003 Pro, I would hate t o purge the whole thing and start over. Any suggestions as how I should continue working on this problem?
Thanks
Herb Kugel

A:[SOLVED] OOutlook 20003 no longer recognizes eml files

I have the same problem! I've lost the link that explains it but it has to do with the NEW "Google desktop". If you have recently installed it, your eml files won't open. Google has said they will fix it in the next version, however, short of using a third part software to open the eml file there doesn't seem to be a thing you can do except uninstall Google desktop.
