Peripheral USB is displayed is not on the desktop

1. if you have recently upgraded your version of OS X, then you just need to double-check your general Finder and the preferences of the sidebar.

Note: I'm running El Capitan and your Finder preferences can be slightly different if your running an older version of OS X.

2 if the boxes are check and uncheck/check them does not help...?

Try resetting your SMC and NVRAM according to the following links.

  • Is there a download from Microsoft which will create a bootable usb media that does not have the drivers?

    Original title: A bootable Windows 7 media

    I work on a Lenovo 2-in-1 with Windows 7 (for games) and 10 (for a normal use) Windows to dual-boot. I created a USB stick with Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) of a legitimate Windows 7 Pro disc. The computer starts on the usb device and plays normally, however, one of the steps asks a driver for cd/dvd and this 2-in-1 (Lenovo Flex 3) doesn't have a built-in CD/DVD. All other drivers are located in a folder system. My question is, given my key Windows 7 can I create a new bootable media that does not demand drivers? Is there a download from Microsoft which will create a bootable usb media that does not have the drivers? I know that I can reinstall the drivers manually after the installation.

    Thank you

  • Satellite Pro L300 - USB card reader does not support the 64 GB

    HI I have a Satellite Pro L300 under Win XP that I want to attach a USB card reader. I find that I can not read the 64 GB cards. The error is that the card is not formatted. All other cards read correctly. I can place this card reader in my desktop running Win 10 and it works correctly and reads the 64 GB cards. This seems to indicate that the USB card reader works properly, and perhaps that the problem lies in the USB on the Toshiba drivers. Has anyone else had this problem and found a fix for this. I've just updated the BIOS but no improvement. Thank you

  • Selected physical channel DAQmxCreateAIVoltageChan OR-USB-9237 VB6 does not support the type of action required

    I have a VB6 program with code that correctly reads the analog inputs of a NOR-USB-6008.

    I tried to re - use the code in a module of extensometer OR-USB-9237, but at the stage of DAQmxCreateAIVoltageChan, I get the following error:

    "Measurements: physical channel selected does not support the type of measure required by the virtual channel you create."

    Create a channel to a type of measure that is supported by the physical channel, or select a physical channel that supports the type of measure. »

    Should I call one function other than DAQmxCreateAIVoltageChan?

    If so, what is it, or where can I find the reference for these functions?

    Or - if it of the right function, should I pass different arguments?  Currently, I'll call you:

    DAQmxErrChk DAQmxCreateAIVoltageChan(taskHandle, "Dev1/ai1", "", DAQmx_Val_Cfg_Default,-10, 10, DAQmx_Val_VoltageUnits1_Volts, "")

    Firstly, the correct function is DAQmxCreateAIVoltageChanWithExcit

  • Player Windows Media displays is not on the screen

    My Windows Media Player is played, but it does not appear on the screen... it looks like its current running in the desktop background? Displays tasks on the bar but the screen? I can right click on the far right of my office and the WMP menu appears, but no picture will appear.

    Hi Rosieand7,

    It looks like the Windows media player is in Mini Player mode.

    Mini Player mode allows you to minimize the player to the Windows task bar, while having access to playback controls and the ability to view visualizations and information about the currently playing item.

    In the mini Player, click anywhere in the drive that is not used as a button or volume control. The Player returns to the way it was before.

    Switch between display modes in Windows Media Player

    I hope this helps!

  • Whne I click on properties to a USB device, ReadyBoost is not in the legs. What should I do?

    My computer is slow superfluosly, and tried for centuries to spped it upward. Finally, I discovered about ReadyBoost, but it does not appear in the Panel properties of any USB storage device I plug it into my computer. Help please?


    See the following message on how to search on your computer for optimal performance.

    Your USB key is probably not ready ReadyBoost and many of those who claim to be really aren't or are
    only marginally so.

    You can add memory, or use a very fast Flash DRIVE for READYBOOST.
    The combination allows more however, either will help some when using memory of pigs.

    (A QUICK Readyboost drive is the best cheapest bang for buck. The only time where you will notice
    It is during these pigs are at stake).

    ReadyBoost uses up to 4 GB of disk space for caching, which can allow the computer to
    run a little faster especially when a large number of programs are running (or some that use huge)
    data files as photoshop).

    DeskJet 3520 used to scan to the computer.  The name of the computer used to happen on the screen of the printer when a scan of the computer asked.  It does not now.  I can't scan from the computer either.

    I am still able to print.

    I deleted all the programs associated with the printer and reinstalled everything from the Web site. Twice.

    Still, this has not fixed the problem.  I'm not very computer savy, but I'm sure that I did not interfere with the settings of the printer.

  • Cannot hot plug WD 3 TB USB 3.0 hard drive in the desktop HP h8 - 1360t

    I received my new h8 - 1360t HP Office on 31 July. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium boot from SSD. It seems to be a very good computer except for one problem: it does not recognize my WD "My Book Essential" 3 TB USB 3.0 external drive into a USB port unless the reader is connected then the computer is turned off.

    Even after that I turned on the HP with the connected drive and it is recognized, if I remove and connect then to postpone, the drive appears in Windows Explorer or Windows disc maintenance.

    Windows seems to know that I'm hot plugged a USB 3.0 device, because if I plug the drive into a USB 2.0 port, a bubble message on the screen saying I could get better performance by using a USB 3.0 port.

    The car worked fine with my old Dell Vista 32-bit office and is recognized every time that I plug it into the USB 3.0 port on my Asus laptop (also running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit).

    HP recognises my other two drives from WD USB 3.0, a 500 GB and a 2 TB, when I'm hot their connection. I tried to use the cable from the drive 2 TB with 3 TB drive, but nothing has changed.

    The Win 7 WD SES driver is the latest version, as is the firmware of the drive 3 TB.

    I would like any suggestions to solve this problem.


    I have tried my external drives in several ports and find that they are sometimes recognised and sometimes not.  Sometimes, they do not appear in Windows Explorer or disk management, but are listed when I click the icon remove the device safely. Now, whenever I turn on the computer with the 3 TB drive plugged into a USB 3.0 port, the drive is recognized but I see the message that says: I would get better performance if I used a USB 3.0 port.  USB on this machine seems seriously screwed.

    I did the factory image recovery and my WD external drives seem to work perfectly with the computer now.

    Thanks for the link to the CMOS resets information. It may be useful if I have other problems.
