Under Device Manager, choose the device - "Smart Card Reader Keyboard" - then click the Details tab, select the "Safe Removal Required" Property - it is set to True in this case. I do not have Admin rights on this domain, so I cannot test by changing it to False and see if the Notification disappears, but I hope so.

Is there a reason you're formatting your USB drive to FAT32? I believe FAT32 has a file size limit of 2GB (or maybe its 4GB), so once your image reaches that limit it throws the error. Try formatting it to NTFS, that should allow any file size.

I found an answer: You can simultaneously charge and record with the HD HERO Original, HD HERO2, HERO3, or HERO3+ cameras. To do this, you can use the supplied USB cable. Use that to connect your camera to a USB wall charger or auto charger that outputs 5V and 1A. You cannot record while the camera is connected to a computer. ...

I'd try a USB 2 hub into the USB 3 port & put the flash drive in that; might be sufficient to step it down.

After reading the comments posted here and the wiki article for USB, I have finally found what I need to buy - USB Type A plug to Mini USB Type B plug. To be safe, I have ordered a dual "Y" cable to draw extra power for my Hard drive. Here is an image of what I ordered: http://www.acp.ca/images/313265.jpg

The issue is that XP doesn't directly support exFAT. Support for exFAT was introduced with Vista SP1 and is included with Windows 7. You can add support for exFAT in XP and Server 2003 by installing an update available here: Description of the exFAT file system driver update package XP will not format a volume over 32GB as FAT32 although some third party ...

I replaced this USB PCB and unfortunately the problem persists. Hopefully I'm not doing them a disservice, but it seems to me that HP have not followed best practices here, and do not have resettable fuses or similar, so I'm still down 1 USB port (out of 2).

After uninstalling the Universal Serial Bus Controllers and restarting, installing the Logitech drivers, changing the USB socket I plugged the mouse in to, it turns out that none of these were the answer.

The hardware you purchased does not 64-bit operating systems. There is no way to make this hardware work on a 64-bit operating system because 64-bit drivers do not exist for it.

Plug in a USB keyboard. Go to device manager and delete the laptop keyboard (not the USB one you just added). Does the beeping stop? If so then replace the keyboard. Fairly easy (usually) and probably less than $40. Or just disconnect the keyboard cable (underneath the keyboard) and use only the USB keyboard.

A general answer: An SSD is likely to be faster than HDD independent of how you connect/access it - assuming that the connection itself is faster than or equally fast as the SSD. So a 5Gbps USB3 connection should allow to retain much of the speed of even a 6Gbps SSD, but maybe not allow it to run at top/possible speed. But do count in ALL items in the ...

Your stick does not even show up in the output of lsusb, which is quite worrisome. Normally, components for which a suitable driver does not exist may not work, but at least they are correctly identified and reported by lsusb.

While the USB hub wont convert a USB 2 drive into a USB 3 one, theres something called bus contention. When two devices share a bus, in the absence of a bandwidth limiting method, and being both drives capable of using the full speed of the bus, both will divide the bandwidth by the ideal fraction. This means that the bus running at 480mbit/sec, both drives ...

Try another computer. If it works on that computer it is not the trackpad. If it does not work on that 2nd computer, that would confirm that the device is not working and I would replace it.

The risk with this is that the program may modify the registry on the system it is being run on, or that it may leave a file somewhere on the system. An example of this behavior can be seen with Putty, which generally leaves around a config file of some kind with settings related to connections made with it. From what I've been able to tell in my (BRIEF) ...

I've noticed this a lot. What we do is to share and then unshare the drive. It's had a 99% success rate. I have no clue why it works, but time to time it says another user is accessing the drive... even though I just shared it only to unshare it. Try that. You'd be surprised at the success rate.

Particularly, I'm concerned that MicroUSB devices may be standardized at such lower power levels that a MicroUSB charger might not have enough juice to feed a device designed for MiniUSB even with an adapter. This is not true. Both MiniUSB and MicroUSB devices can be connected to the same charger. They are electrically compatible and only differ ...

As you say, it is only and adapter, the power comes from your usb port or your AC charger. Be sure your devices support charging through usb and check that the microusb AC charger doesn't output more power than the one intended for your miniusb device and you'll not have any problem.

Open up a console (cmd.exe) and type diskpart. Type list disk then select disk 0 (change the 0 to whatever number your USB drive is.

That USB port only is there to draw more power if it needs it. You can plug it into the Surface's power supply and nothing bad should happen. The USB spec specifies that only 5V should be drawn, max, from any one power port. Some devices adhere to this more strictly than others (and in the case of Apple, won't allow the device to draw more than 5V unless it ...

If it's a Lenovo ThinkPad chances are it's the "always on USB", which is a special port that remains powered when the computer is hibernating, or when the computer is fully powered off and the AC adapter plugged. This allows you to, for example, keep charging your phone or wireless controller without having to keep your computer running. ...

I too hit this bug (after trying to connect a dozen USB network interface devices). I'm pretty sure it's not an electrical current problem with the devices: they are all on powered hubs and well within the current limitations. I think it's an issue of allocating interrupts or some other resource. I tried the workaround of disabling USB 3.0 in the BIOS but I ...

Windows 7 doesn't include generic USB 3.0 drivers, so you'll need to provide those if you use a USB 3.0 port, even if you're using just a USB 2.0 stick. I followed this solution which I gathered from various sources. I assume an understanding of Windows and the command line. Prerequisites Existing Windows installation USB stick with Windows setup USB 3.0 ...

I had a similar issue with windows. This is how I fixed it: Devices -> USB hub-> properties -> power management -> untick: Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Check if your linux distro has similar functionality as the PC may not be restoring power the ports on resume.

To fix simply remove phone tethering drivers. Do not have your phone plugged in when doing this: Open up a run dialog, type devmgmt.msc, go to "Network Adapters".

If by any chance you uninstalled the wrong driver, just hit the "Scan" ...

One way would be to use a USB-Ethernet adapter, plug the USB-Ethernet in both computers and connect like that. This is especially useful if your computer dosen't have an ethernet port. You can buy one here: http://www.staples.com/Belkin-B2B048-USB-30-to-Gigabit-Ethernet-Card/product_IM1QU4388

Yet another reason: Ever since USB 2.0 came out, a single "controller" is actually at least two controllers, one for the USB 1.1 mode and one for 2.0 mode. For compatibility reasons, the thing has to come up first in 1.1 mode, then it also offers the 2.0 mode. But the 1.1 mode has to stay available to service 1.1 and 1.0 devices. The one that's called either ...

Well, your question is: How can I connect two computers (preferably using Windows 8.1, I don't mind using a OS with a linux-kernel) with USB 3.0 ports together to transfer files or maybe play LAN games?

You can use Intel ME to block unknown USB devices and get reports on system logs. To configure this you can use "Intel Small Business Advantages" or take a look at their samples and code something yourself. You may have a way to do it from the UEFI, depending on your motherboard. You could also disable unused USB ports.

I would check if the HDD pulls more power than is "spec" for USB 3.0 port in question. HDD publishes max power draw spec (esp. on spin-up), and USB 3.0 controller publishes the max power supplied.

Sounds like power pins are shorted in the port. Don't use it or you can damage connected devices. If it's an onboard port you should replace your motherboard.
