So I installed 7 Pro RTM, and plugged in my external sound card and no dice. I wouldn't normally care as I have a working PCI soundcard, except that its a really really high quality DAC, and it cost me a lot of money, so I'd rather not just forget all about it
On XP it uses just generic usbaudio.sys, it works on macs, linux, etc without any issues. What can I try? I attempted to copy across a windows xp version of usbaudio.sys, but that didn't seem to help (I'm not entirely sure I did this correctly).
USB And Card Reader Won't Work Anymore?
I went to plug in a CF card into my system as I do weekly to download pictures and windows says I need to format the card (it is formatted and there are pics on it) when I tried to format the card via windows it won't format the card. When I tried to hook the camera up to the PC using a USB cord it said the same thing. And when I plugged a flash drive into the USB, it also has the same error. Device properties show an exclamation mark by all the drives exceot my hard drive.Is this most likey a driver issue? If it is, would using my win7 disc and doing an install over the current Win 7 fix the issue? I'm not super technical to trying to fix the USB drivers themselves is not really in the cards.
Looking To Buy A New External/usb Sound Card
My onboard soundcard isn't working with Windows 7. I really like the performance Windows 7 is giving me for everything, from games (no sound), to processor-heavy loads, but I just can't get the audio to work. I have tried a lot of sound drivers listed in these forums, but they all say the drivers can't find suitable hardware and exits the install.
Generic USB Internal Card Reader?
I have a multi-function card reader installed in my computer and it will not read any of the flash cards I have, this card reader has USB connection on the front which works fine. I am attaching a screen shot it is the generic USB Hub right under Universal Serial Bus controllers that is the cause of this problem. As you can see the the Sony cam USB device on this hub is working fine, but I cannot plug in any CF Flash XD or SD or MS flash card to the reader they are not seen. I have disabled the reader restarted the computer no luck. I am sure it is a realtek card reader I have tried installing latest driver from realtek with no luck. This was working fine in the past in fact the realtek drivers also worked and showed up in device manager.
External Download Managers Won't Work With IE9?

Why Won't External Hard Drive Work In IDE Mode Through ESATA
My motherboard is ASRock m3a770de. I built my machine 3 days ago. I have one Hiatchi 500gb internal HD, and one 1TB external HD.I am running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Edition.After building my computer three days ago, I installed windows, and my external was not being detected through eSATA in the BIOS or in Windows "Probably need to install drivers" I said.So I put in the CD that came with my motherboard, and installed the AMD All in One Driver that was on it. Restarted, and hey, my external was showing up.Today, after installing SP1 (not sure if thats what did it), my ext hd was no longer showing up again. I reinstalled the driver on that CD. Now, I'm not sure if it even installed the first time, because it said it was currently uninstalled through the ATI catalyst installation program. But it didn't work this time. I'm not sure what got it to work the first time. But my eSATA drive was being read in IDE mode for three days. When trying to get it work the first time, I did plug it in via USB to see if it would work, maybe that had something to do with it working the first time?
Anyway, I changed my registry to start up in AHCI mode, and then went into my bios and changed my storage config to AHCI. Upon booting, windows would not load with my external HD turned on (anybody know why?), but loaded once I turned it off. Windows then installed AHCI drivers, and upon restarting, both hard drive, external and internal, were being detected as removal storage.Why can't I get my external HD to be read in IDE mode through eSATA? IT doesn't get read through the BIOS or Windows, even if i scan for new hardware.EDIT: sigh, now when I just went to reboot, it wouldn't load windows when my external hard drive was plugged in. Windows loaded when I unplugged it. Windows detected it when I plugged it back in.

Graphics Card Randomly Won't Work After Restart
I have a rather strange issue. Yesterday I had to restart my machine due to Mozilla Thunderbird and Windows updates, however, when the box rebooted, my monitors displayed "No Signal". After a little troubleshooting and finding an old VGA cord, I figured out to hook it up to the on-board video card (the HDMI wouldn't work on it).Now for some reason the card isn't detected and when I use the disk to try and re-install the drivers, I just get a "No Drivers" message at the main menu. So it looks like my graphics card just went out. But wait! I also noticed (after much frustration) that when I tried to Hibernate the box, it didn't work. Now I have Hibernate set to my front power button, however, when I also try to do it from the start menu, Hibernate and Sleep are grayed out. Please help!!!To recap: After restart and Thunderbird/Windows updates, graphics card won't work along with losing the capability to sleep and hibernate the box.
New USB External HDD Won't Show In Computer
New external HDD won't show in "Computer". I Have searched a lot, but only find comments directing me to Disk management and Device manager. The Ext. HD is not showing there either. Power light is on. This is a Lacie 2 TB Minimus USB 3.0 External Hard Drive [URL] No "Doorbell" sound when I plug in or un plug the USB connector. The LaC i.e., troubleshooting page tells me to go to device manager, but like l said, it's not showing there either.
Plus, it seems to have knocked out several of my USB ports, and I had the warning flag next to several of them in device manager ,but I was able to get them back by right clicking on each line one at a time, Un installing, and right clicking on the heading for the group, and selected "scan for hardware change". Then in the tray, I saw Driver was installed, or device is ready, something like that. All the ports seem to be working now, and the yellow flags are gone.
I did then try the External drive again, but it is still not working. I also installed desktop manager, but it's telling me to plug in my external drive, and then to re start my device. And if I start Desktop Manager it says, "No LaCie Desktop compliant device found." So I have another computer that shares this monitor,so I shut this one down, and hooked up my usb keyboard and mouse to the other older desktop system running XP, and the older computer does recognize this external hard drive.
It is in My computer on the older XP system/computer. So I shut that one down and started this one, and it does not show up on this computer, but then I noticed my keyboard would not work. Had to switch the keyboard USB ports to the other front USB port. And I had the yellow flags back in device manager again. Had to un-install again and let the system re install (selecting "scan for hardware change). Windows 7 Home premium, 64 Bit, Compaq Desktop, model 2010.

Motherboard Won't Recognize New Sound Card
I had a custom PC built for me recently by a friend. Everything was installed except the sound card. I bought a creative recon 3d fatality sound card and looked up how to do it and its pretty straight forward.. However, no matter which PCI slot i plug it into upon computer start up my computer dosnt even recognize that there is an audio output device. I tried downloading the new drivers tons of times, rebooting, uninstalling the reinstalling.. Nothing seems to work and nobody really knows why. Also tried to F2 on start up to try and switch my motherboards audio out from a default setting but it really dosnt even give me that option.
USB Won't Work At Windows Startup?
I've been facing ever since I reformatted the system. I'm using wireless keyboard and when ever the machine is turned on, it wouldn't respond for the keyboard or mouse at the login screen.

I don't know why but I did install all the drivers.
USB Stick Won't Work With 1 Of 3 PCs
I recently purchased a Kingston 16GB DataTraveler SE6 USB 2.0 stick. It works without fault in my 2 laptops running Windows 7 (x32), it also works perfectly in my car stereo & Android tablet. It is formatted as FAT.However on my desktop, running Windows 7 (x64) 9 times out of 10 I will get a message saying it needs formatting. 1 out of 10 it will work fine. Even if i try and format it it fails to format, both quick format and regular format.So i've concluded that the USB stick is fine and it must be an issue on my desktop. The desktop is a fairly new build, 3 months old and I'm experiencing no other issues with it. I use a number of other external drives on usb, mini memory sticks via readers and the like without issue. All drivers in Device Manager are reporting fine. i don't unfortunately have another USB stick to test.

USB Midi Won't Work Anymore
I'm having problems getting my Usb MIDI to work in my music software. It used to work, but one day it just magically stopped working. I was about to make a dumb mistake and buy a new $60 Usb MIDI cable, but then I checked in device manager and I noticed that Windows WAS recognizing the Usb MIDI cable. It even said "This device is working properly." The MIDI Input light on the cable blinks when I press the keyboard's(piano) keys when I first plug it in, then stops after a while. It's supposed to be plug-n-play. When I first got it, no driver download was needed. I plugged it in, and it worked. I was thinking it may need a driver update? Or maybe a new driver? [code]
