You'll need to get the driver for this webcam, and make sure that it is made for your operating system (windows 7 32 bit vs. windows 7 64 bit for instance). Older webcams may not have 64 bit drivers, for instance, and won't work on later systems.

Search on bing.com or google.com for vg-0050 and there should be sites that offer free drivers for download. Good luck on this.

Printer says it is not connected


This printer has an USB2 connector and you need to connect it to the USB port on your computer. The USB connect on the printer is smaller that the USB port on your computer.
I sounds like you have connect the printer correctly because you have been printing.

You can download the Canon printer drivers from their support WEB site. Please click on this link and select your model printer to download : - http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=DownloadIndexAct

I have been trying to register my new nuvi 1410 which i bought on saturday . I get as far as " Please wait while communicator plugin detects your connected device " How long should this take ?


Please make sure that you are connecting the usb cable directly to a usb port on your computer and NOT through a usb hub. Then make sure you are registered with Garmin and have downloaded the latest Garmin updater software. Make sure that the unit is fully charged. Once it is connected and recognized the map update can take hours even with a fast internet connection.
Thanks for using FixYa.

When my computer searches for new hardware, it recognizes it and then installs it as "Unknown Device" The device still will not work, however, because when I check it in the device manager it...


This device should be recognized automaticaly by the OS. There are some issues with Windows 7, though.
Make sure you are trying to plug it in a 2. USB port, rather than 1.1. This might cause you trouble (even though this will not be a problem if you have a new computer)
Connect the hub to the external powercord. Sometimes it is not recognized because the hub cannot drain enough energy from the port.
if you are using a desktop pc, make sure it is plugged in the rear usb ports and not at the ones up front.

Here's what you can do since this is a USB wireless adapter, first connect the USB adapter on a different USB port on the computer better if you connect it on the back USB port of the computer tower and check if the computer will recognize it and if its recognize you can already continue with the software installation , but if not you can restart first the computer and check if the adapter will be recognized if still not the next thing to do here just to know if the adapter is good or bad is to connect it on a different computer and just to check if it will be recognized once its connected to a USB port , because a device should be automatically will be recognized by a computer once you connect it so if its still not recognized by a different computer adapter is bad...

Dropped wd, not recognized by computer


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

USB recognizes it, but not the OS. I get no drive


Hello, nkhamo

Now, when you say USB recognizes it, do you mean you see the drivers being installed? Because if you are the OS is recognizing something has been plugged in.

Sometimes updating the USB Drivers will be needed. Do that by visiting the maker of your computer and search for Drivers and Updates on their Web Site, look for 2.0 USB drivers class, download that package to your desktop. The driver might be in the form of a Zip FIle. In that case, unzip the files using standard WinZip program or use software provided by computer, to a folder called cab. The driver program might show preference were it wants to unzip to. If so, let it do its thing. Then afterwards find the folder (cab or other folder) run USB driver by clicking install exe file. Note that all periperials need to be unconnected from all USB ports ( the port the laser printer connects to the computer at ) before updating USB drivers. So check cables for solid reconnection after installing drivers.
Its important to recognize the os you have. You'll find that information by clicking on Start Menu > Settings > Control Panel > System.

After doing this update, reconnecting the hard drive via USB Port.

Good luck, jasahasch

San Disk 260 MP3 player doesn't syn anymore


I found a suggestion on your site to turn off the MP3 player and disconnect from port - then while holding down the volume button I reconnected it and continued to hold down the button for about 50 seconds. It may not be what fixed it but the computer recognized the player as new hardware and I was able to go to the Media Player and syn - the next time I booted up my computer the little "found new hardware" icon appeared - and kept appearing until the noise drove me crazy - but I restarted the computer and it went away. Thanks!
