  • BlackBerry Smartphones Mass Storage device not recognized...

    I am running Windows XP (Media Center Edition) and at the time where I was using a 8320, I didn't have this problem... but now that I have a 8330, my computer does not recognize the MicroSD card, I got plugged into my phone. It's literally the same card that was in the 8320, and otherwise everything else works perfectly.

    It is listed as an unknown in my Device Manager device, specifically as a "RIM Composite Device".

    * I already uninstalled the drivers of BB on my computer and reinstalled them.

    * I already uninstalled DM and reinstalled - not that I thought he would do anything, but it was worth it.

    * I went to the Microsoft support site and tried to use the drivers they have there.

    * I tried to disable the driver in my device manager and tried to force XP to recognize the device. No dice.

    UH... that's all! Any suggestions?

    Just an update to this issue.
     
    It is not really a solution, but I am sick of XP Media Center Edition, so I did a complete reformat of my laptop and installed XP Pro (as the words of God!) Long story short, my computer is recognizing the card support very well now. I can only assume there was some parameter of the register or glitch in my MCE that prevented the drivers to work as they should.
     
    Anyway, solved! Thanks for the help!

    Hi RodneyThomas,

    Do you get any error messages? What is the exact error message?

    ·         Find out which software and devices are and are not compatible with Windows Vista.

    ·         Look for links to drivers and upgrades that will make your compatible computer.

    Windows compatibility:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/Windows/compatibility

    Try to install the software by using compatibility mode:

    Run the program compatibility Wizard

    1. open the program compatibility Wizard the by clicking the Start button, click Control Panel, clicking programs, and then clicking on use an older with this version of Windows program.

    2. follow the directions in the wizard.

    If you are unable to install a program, insert the installation for the program and, using the wizard disk, navigate to the program setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The wizard is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

  • 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 received a message that the driver was already updated and got a message "device cannot start (code 10).»

    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).

    Is there an internal procedure and what can I do about this problem? My development program, said that this mistake could cause my computer crashes often or he can go for a long time without replying (which it does).

    Hate to be chatty but I wanted to present all the facts.

    Can someone please help me get this figured out? Thank you in advance.

    Hello Sammy,.

    Please provide detailed information about your question. I appreciate the step by step troubleshooting, and pain that you have taken to resolve your problem. However, there are a few steps more that we can try to diagnose the root cause and to check the health of your system, to solve the problem permanently.

    Microsoft does not recommend using third party software melody. That running these software can damage records.

    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.

    I suggest you to follow the steps described in the following Microsoft article and see if it works for you.

    FIX: "this device cannot start" error Code 10 in the Device Manager in Windows

    Hope it would help. If problem persists always post back with the current state of your computer and the result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to help you.

  • Mass storage device USB WD Passport 070 has

    I recently bought a WD Passport 070 (1 to) a USB mass storage device... I went through all the appropriate channels to get it recognized on my windows vista computer, and all said that it works well. (I did the whole Device Manager/uninstall everything and then analyzed for new and checked and then in disk management and said it's very good)  My problem is... Where/how you get?  in fact it open and start to transfer things to my portable hard drive?  Thanks for your time

    You have not said if the drive is formatted.

    Hard drives, which are main storage on your computer, need to be formatted before using them. Formatting a disk means configuring the disk with a file system so that Windows can store information on the disk. Already the format of hard disks in new computers running Windows. If you buy an additional hard drive to increase the storage of your computer, you may need to format.
