GPS (global positioning) will not work. Lack of USB mass storage device

When I plug my GPS device into the usb port and driver disk into a dvd, where both worked, the installation wizard gives me a notice of default. Reference to the Device Manager shows 2 yellow? mark. Use of the facility of re - install and update does not solve the problem. I get a message indicating that a usb mass storage device is missing. Insertion of other devices on the usb port in question, or any other, says there is nothing wrong with any. Does anyone have an answer


You are able to correctly use the other USB devices on your computer, I recommend you contact the manufacturer of the GPS (global positioning satellite) for assistance.

Hope the helps of information.

  • It lacks a computer on my new USB mass storage device.

    When I plug my two sticks of SanDisk U3 into my computer, my brand new computer does not recognize them. I passed to the Device Manager and looked under controller universal serial bus, while it is in my USB and the mass storage deivce is not displayed. I have windows vista on this computer and my laptop. These work on my laptop very well, but not on this computer. I bought the full version of Windows Vista and have the disk. I have this installed on 1 computer.

  • Problem ejecting USB Mass Storage Device [Unlocker doesn't work]

    Hey everybody,

    Just like everyone else, I get a pop-up message when trying to eject my external hard drive WD: "problem ejecting USB Mass Storage Device. Windows can't stop... "and so on." This does not work when I've only sailed on the disk, but it does, for example, when I made a mistake - check or make a backup. I already checked the forums, but unlike everyone else, third-party programs do not work for me.
    I did the following:

    -closed open task

    -disabled virus scanner

    -used Unlocker and Process Explorer, but he can't find any process that locks my drive. What happens here?

    -rebooted in safe mode

    -disabled indexing

    It makes me crazy that I have to restart whenever I want my drive to eject.

    Oh, and I use Windows 7.

    Can someone help me solve this problem?


    (1) is limited to any specific USB device?

    (2) did you try to connect the device to a different USB port and check if you are facing a similar question?

    This problem may occur if there are handles open with all the files in the USB (Universal Serial Bus) mass storage device are in use by another program. Follow these methods and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you run the hardware and devices Troubleshooter to check if it helps.

    Open the hardware and devices Troubleshooter

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to check and clean the boot if any third-party program is causing the problem.


    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista and Windows 7


    Warning: After you used the clean boot in order to solve your problem follow step 7 to reset the computer to start as usual.


    Connecting and disconnecting USB devices:


    Most USB devices can be removed and disconnected at will. When you unplug the devices of storage, such as USB flash drives, you should be sure that the computer has finished saving all the information on the device before removing it. If the device has an activity light, wait a few seconds after the light has finished flashing before unplugging.

    If you see the icon remove the device safely in to the far right of the taskbar notification area, you can use this to ensure that devices have finished all operations in progress and are ready to remove. Click the icon and you will see a list of devices. Click the device you want to remove.

    You can use any USB port when you plug in a device you have installed beforehand. However, the first time you connect a device to a particular port, Windows will install the driver for this device again.

  • Message "USB Mass Storage Device does not work properly"

    Ran AVG PC tune up and referred the problem message "USB storage device work does not correctly. I went to Device Manager, clicked on "bus USB controllers. He showed the device with a yellow exclamation point USB mass storage. I have double clicked on it, went to the drivers and updated the driver.

    I thought that maybe he was looking for the storage device of mass external and plugged on the USB port. He has shown in the Device Manager under the other mass storage device but had no yellow exclamation point (I guess that means it's very good).

    For the problem with the error code 10, I would ask you to try the steps below:

    A Code 10 error is generated in the Device Manager in one of the following situations:

    1. Device Manager cannot start the device.
    2. One of the pilots who needs the unit does not start.
    3. The Device Manager has insufficient information to recognize the error that spread upwards by the device driver.

    Note: In this case, the Code 10 error can be a very generic message indicating some sort of unspecified driver or device problem.

    Error Code 10 is mainly related to devices and hardware driver problems or compatibility problems between the drivers of equipment and additional software that is installed in Windows. Therefore, we recommend that solve you these problems with emphasis on device drivers, configuration of device problems and hardware compatibility issues.

  • Wireless, Satellite A500-17 x will not work


    Bit of an issue, the wireless on my laptop will not work. It is certainly a problem with the laptop itself, the router etc are all fine. I can connect to the internet with a cable, but Wireless does just not all. The switch on the front of the laptop, which should turn the radio power, has no effect. Before this problem of switching on the position 'on' would cause icon connection Wireless next to the switch to light up, it's no longer the case. Furthermore, when I tried to check the drivers in Device Manager there are only one option under "Network adapters", which is the "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. Right click and select "update driver software...". ' result in a message saying that the proper drivers are installed. I don't know, but I suspect that there may be a lack of adapter or something?

    Any help much appreciated.

    Maybe some unknown device appears in Device Manager?

    You should have 2 entries for network adapters. One for the LAN and the other for the WLAN.

    By the way: when you set switch WLAN on WE and when you use FN + F8 what happens exactly?

  • Upcoming games with Windows 7 will not work on Presario SR1020NX. Upgrade Advisor said that W7 would work with the exception of the Aero

    W7 Upgrade Advisor said it would work with the exception of Windows Aero.  When the games to try to come with W7 get window 'game running in software rendering... '. Hardware acceleration disabled or not supported by the video card driver"games will not work. A check says last drivers are installed.  Tried to reinstall WXP in separeat partition to see if would work like that but will not because most recent W7.

    I suggest that you use XP personally gave a computer which is so old.

    If you have a computer with XP (3 + years) and have not changed at least two of these things (CPU, RAM, video card), you should probably stick with XP. Not worth the headache of praying that things work with a material more old which probably is no longer supported on the new OS.
    Usually, people that the computer was shipped with Vista 1, 2 or less it several years ago can be upgraded to 7 without too much trouble if it was a mid-range machine.

    In addition, it seems that Windows is not recognizing your graphics card. It looks like ( you have an Intel Extreme graphics card. However, nothing about it is extreme. Since it is an extreme Intel card I guess Windows Update should find the drivers for you, but it is not then maybe the video card is just too outdated for 7? I'm not sure.

    Moreover, I wouldn't worry much about the lack of updates for XP right now. If ever you encounter more money then get the new computer with 7 on it, but at this time I suggest you stay on XP if your hardware and software actually works and that is more important than a few features of 7.

    Hi, I bought a the United States iphone6, im now in South Africa and it will not work. It says sim not do I fix this?

    The SIM card is not support indicates that the iPhone is locked to the American carrier that it has been activated with. In order to obtain the released lock it is necessary that you talk to the carrier to find out what their requirements are to release the lock. They are the only ones who unlock it so that it can be used with another carrier.

  • How can I recover my old firefox after I replaced it, it told me a new will not work?

    I was on my AOL Homepage and was encouraged to be upgraded for increased security. Everything went well, but when I tried to open Firefox, I learned it wouldn't work. Usually, with this older system, I am notified when an upgrade will not work. I would have never taken the lead and replaced my old if I knew. Is it possible to recover my old Firefox?

    There are apps that I have on this old system that does not work on newer systems. (I have an Airbook updated but I like the big screen for some things). I found this on Google:
    September 11, 2013 - where can I find older versions of Firefox, which runs on OSX 10.5? ... because Firefox 16 is the latest version of Firefox that works with Mac...
    and downloaded Firefox 16 of their link. It seems to work. For security reasons, I use my Airbook for bill payment, etc.
