Usb Cable Not Connected

Scanner shows "usb cable not connected" in the window on the printer. I installed a new usb cable, but same note. Answer:-
Two more possibilities: 1. The usb port on the computer side is damaged. Try a different one, go into bios and make sure they are enabled. 2. The usb port on the printer is damaged. Buy a new printer.

Hp Laserjet 4250 Scanner - Usb Cable Is Not Connected

My hp 4250 copier scanner will copy but when i try to scan it tells me the usb cable is not connected?

Answer:- it sounds to me that you missing some software? Try to reinstall your software for it and don't forget to uninstall before reinstall! And never install with the usb cable inserted! Plug it in when the software installation ask you to! Or if software don't ask? After the installation is comp let and computer is restarted!

Linksys Wrt120n - Error 321 - Ethernet Cable Not Connected

I just got my new linksys wrt120n router yesterday and i decided to set it up as soon as i could. I followed all their instructions, plugged in the things in the way they showed; and then, after the last step, they can't configure my router or my network. It says that my ethernet cable does not appear to be connected properly. But it is, i've checked it every time, and it is connected. If anyone has any advice or solutions/answers to this problem, then please tell me. I really don't want to buy a router just for it not to work at all.

Usb 2.0 Maximum Cable Length - Long Usb Cables

My backup device is a usb 2. 0 250 mb iomega hard drive. I'd like to put it in my garage, requiring about 20 to 25 feet of wire. The official usb specs say 5 meters max; if further use a hub/repeater. I'm wondering how realistic the 5 meter spec is. I recall that parallel printer cables were supposed to be limited to 10 feet or so; 75 foot cables worked just fine. Same thing with the specs for rs-232 cables. Does anyone have any real world experience with long usb 2. 0 cables? I'm thinking of building mine using unshielded cat5 cable, one twisted pair for power, another for data. Wise? Foolish?

Usb Active Repeater - Usb Extension Cable

I bought an 10m usb extension cable so that i could wire this across my room to downstairs but anything i connect to it, the computer says it is not recognised and that there are no drivers installed. Im guessing the signal is low or something as i believe they only work up to 5m, so im thinking of getting a usb active repeater but how do these work exactly and what size will i need?

I dont want my connection to be longer then 10m so would i have to connect the repeater to the computer and then the 10m cable to the repeater or something? Or will this not work no matter what becasue it is 10m?

Usb 2.0 Degradation With Long Usb Cable

I'm reorganizing my htpc setup to add a second pc but i'd like to keep my external drives where they are. It will be about 8-10 foot run total with about 3 feet for the usb hub (powered) and another 5-7 feet for the extension. Both cables are shielded. According to the standard i should be good up to 16 feet (5m), but i was wondering if anyone had experience with long usb cable runs and if they noticed any degradation either in the form of slower speed or corrupted data.

Usb Hub Using A Usb Y-cable For More Power

I use a laptop that only has 3 usb ports, and i like using a corded mouse and an external hard drive that takes up the other 2 ports. Since a usb y-cable provides more power, could i use that to hook into the hub?

I want to hook one of these:

Into one of these:

Would that provide more power to the hub, without having to use the ac adapter with the hub?

I really wish someone made a simple hub like this with 2 plugs:

My employers have given me a solid state drive as they have a few spares. It's a notebook drive, but i have a desktop. So my plan is to connect the ssd via usb.

My question is, am i getting the full benefits of the faster ssd when connecting to it by usb? i.e. Is it faster to have the drive connected internally ?

Can A Bad Usb Hub Damage Connected Devices ?

Can a bad, low quality, and/or inexpensive usb hub damage connected devices? Or as long as it works, then it's fine? Since it is supposed to only relay the connection and not send any signals etc. Of its own, so i was just wondering about this.

Printer Usb Device Connected To This Computer Has Malfunctioned

Ok so i was installing two printers (officejet 6000 (e609)) at my work today. The first one set up well and did the auto alignment print but when i put the install disk in and was prompted to insert the usb cable the bubble popped up and said "a usb device connected to this computer has malfunctioned, " and the installation could not proceed because it didn't recognize the printer.

Device Can Perform Faster If Connected To Hi Speed Usb 2.0 Port

Every day, a bubble that says the following pops up "this device can perform faster. This usb device can perform faster if you connect it to a hi-speed usb 2. 0 port. For a list of available ports, click here. " It pops up even when there are no usbs in my computer. It happens close to 50 times a day and is bugging me. If i click on it there is a check box that says "notify if device can perform faster" and i uncheck it and click close and then a few seconds later it pops up again. It is very annoying because every time it pops up it makes this "boop boop" noise and when i try to listen to music or watch a video the sounds disrupts it. I have an hp pavillion dx6000 laptop running windows vista. Please, if anyone knows how to solve this, let me know.

Simultaneously Connected External Usb Hard Drive Is Safe ?

External usb hard drive connected simultaneously to laptop and usb powered hub: safe? I have a external 2. 5" hard drive (in enclosure with usb port ). It has a "y" usb cable (to connect to 2 usb ports in my laptop, if more current is needed). Can i connect the "y" cable to the laptop and to a powered (external power adapter) usb hub? The intention would be to get from the usb hub any extra power the hard drive may need. Is this safe? Does it make sense? The hub is not connected to the laptop - will it work properly?

Pen Drive Scan Automatically By Antivirus On Connected To Usb Port ?

Pen drive must be scanned automatically by anti virus software while it connects to usb port?


The functionality you are talking about is available in some anti-virus suites. (I think) if your anti-virus suite doesn't has that functionality then search for any other small application which can help you in this matter.

Split A Usb Cable

I was trying to split a usb cable so that my keyboard could give input to two things at the same time. Here's what i did: i had a spare usb hub and i plugged the keyboard into it. I then took 2 usb male connectors and hooked them up the output of the hub. I first tried to have only one of the +5v and ground hooked up, but it didn't work. I had to hook up power and ground on both usb heads. Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong?

In case i lost you here's a small diagram

Usb head|hub| usb heads
. /-]
. -]

Btw: it didn't work with both devices. However it did work on one computer, but not the other. It's not the connections, because i unplugged the cable from the computer it was working on and it started working on the other computer. I probably did something blatantly obvious wrong. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Usb And Firewire Cable

I have a usb 2. 0 external hard drive and i was just wondering if it would still work if i used a firewire cable instead. If it does work i figure it would give me faster transfer speeds, but i am just not sure if the driver would be compatible with firewire.

Usb Extension Cable

So i've got 3 computers in a van with 3 seperate wall mounts for the keyboard/mice connections. Currently they are ps/2 connections but i'm wanting to go with usb. My reasoning being that (1. ) The new keyboards/mice are not all being recognized unless plugged directly into the computer via usb, (2. ) Occasionally the person using the computer will bump the keyboard/mouse connection and when reconnecting the cable it will not always come back online without a system reboot. I've been doing a little research on usb extension cables and it seems that the maximum length that you can run is 5m (16ft). All of the cableing is going through about 2in wide duct along the van wall. After measuring distance herein lies my problem:

Computer 1 is roughly 15. 6ft from the keyboard/mouse wall mount
Cpu 2 is 26. 2ft
Cpu 3 is 37. 5ft

I was originally going to just run a long enough extension cable or daisy chain but then did the research on limitations. Is there a way of working this that i don't know? Perhaps an amplified usb extension cable, if there is one?
