Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

WHEN I TRY TO PLUG IN A HARD DRIVE OR A PRINTER INTO ANY USB SOCKET I GET A MESSAGE SAYING USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNISED BUT IT WILL PICK UP A FLASH DRIVE PLEASE HELP


Answers :

Is it an external/portable hard drive? Use the rear USB panel, if problems persist, try using your hard drive on another PC. And if you're still having problems, try replacing the USB cables of both the hard drive and printer. If it works on another PC/laptop, buy a PCI USB panel, and install it on the PCI slot of the motherboard. Hope This will help you.

My computer USB drive is not picking up my new freecom mobile drive (250gb). Im running on WindowsXP. The drivers for the drive are not being installed and the device is not recognised when connected to the laptop. It isnt the USB drives because they pick up other devices when inserted. The freecom mobile drive switches on and starts running (you can feel it) when connected, but nothing else happens. I also cannot see the "unallocated" drive in my computer. I need help ASAP. Thanks.
