USB Device Not Recognized

By CapsFanQ ·
Over the weekend, I transferred several photos off of my digital camera onto my laptop, a Dell Inspiron 1545, running Vista. For some reason, now when I try plugging my camera in (via USB) to transfer photos off the camera, I get a pop up bubble saying "USB Device Not Recognized". I thought it might be a bad USB cord but when I tried to use another USB device, I got the same pop up bubble.

I checked the Device Manager and nothing seems to be out of sorts, except for when I try turn on the USB device, and an "unknown device" shows up on the list.

Is there something I can do to restore the use of my USB ports that were working just less than a week ago??

Thank you!

USB Mouse driver?

by danscallon In reply to USB Device Not Recognized

Ok, this may sound a bit unconventional but I had this same problem and it turned out to be associated with the mouse.
Are you using a USB mouse?
If so, try finding a driver for the mouse by doing a search by manufacturer and model number (found on the bottom of the mouse-usually)
Install the driver and it may resolve the problem.
