The abbreviation is of Universal Serial Bus, which refers to the way the device corresponds with a computer in order to deliver or exchange files. The physical link is a small 4-pole connector, but there is of course a goodly amount of controlling electronics with it. There there are very many USB… devices, of which the small portable memory "stick" is perhaps the simplest. Digital cameras also use USB connections to allow you to transfer images from them to computers. (MORE)
I recently purchased a Toshiba external hard drive to move some stuff from my daughters tiny 20G HD on her Inspirion 2650. This is a USB 2 device, and I assumed the USB ports on the computer were also. I guess not. I got a message from XP saying the ports couldn't provide enough power to the device.… I saw the drive had a socket for a DC power supply, so I plugged in the appropriate voltage wall wart. I immediately smelled burning circuitry, so I unplugged it. The USB ports smell like a burned electrical device and they no longer work when I plug in the USB mouse or a memory stick. I'm going to have to pull the MB and see if I can find a fuse to replace. Anyone done this? You have burned the USB ports, and i doubt theres a fuse for this.you plugged the AC adapter in so it was getting its full voltage from that plus the extra voltage from your USB and you have fried the circuitry.

1. right click my computer then properties 2. go to hardware then device manager 3. under usb controllers, right click usb root hub, on power management hub, uncheck the first option you see i think this will help..
How can you connect a mass storage device via your USB ports when the found new hardware wizard says the data is invalid?
\nIf the mass storage doesn't require special drivers, then it's weird. Try to disconnect the storage, reboot your system, and reconnect the storage after rebooting. If it doesn't work read more carefully the manual, or visit the manufactore website.
just yank the sucker out.. if problems occur, leave the storage device in the computer for 10-20 seconds before pulling, because the device may be finalising settings before idol status
If a USB device has malfunctioned, the computer might be able totell a person the problem. Go into devices and right click on thedevice and look for words like troubleshoot. The computer will thenrun a test to see what the problem is. A new USB cord might be theanswer.
Universal serial bus is used to get data as well as to put data into computer system,so we can say that it is used for both purposes.... Regards: email@example.com (S&S 4ever)
This is a title which often appears in the Windows operating system that describes a class of device . It most often appears in the lower right corner of the screen when you connect a flash drive, mp3 player, or memory card to your computer. Basically, a "USB mass storage device" is a "Device" which… connects through a "USB" port and "stores massive" amounts of memory. (MORE)
Any component (keyboard, mouse, memory storage device...) that uses a Universal Serial Bus, which is a kind of uniform connection port that most modern computers use today.
It is an audio device (such as an external sound card, headphones, or speakers) that is connected to a USB port.
Windows 98 does not include drivers for USB Mass Storage devices. A generic driver is available, however.
well if your talking about a portable usb port many times there is a small switch on the side it may be colored different from the port switch it to unlock.

USB has much slower data transfer rates than firewire, SATA or PATA interfaces. USB 2.0 has much higher speeds than USB 1.1, but due to compatibilty reasons many people end up inadvertantly running in a lower-speed compatibility mode.
there could be some driver problem, you might also consider formatting your device if its a storage device and then try using again. OR Else just goto control panel hardware and sound device manager and select "Action" from the menu bar then click on -scan for hardware changes after the computer s…cans again click on scan for hardware changes for two to three times. then just shutdown dont restart just shutdown and remember to keep the device to be plugged to the usb port.Never take it out.

Yes, you have to. Some devices have to be connected before installation. But if you start installing drivers even if device is not connected but has to be it will not damage the operating system.

There's a few ways you could go about this. The simplest way is to delete the usbstor.inf and usbstor.sys files. These are the drivers that support USB storage devices. You will need to make sure you delete both the main file and any backup copy the system might have in its driver cache. You should …be able to do this easily from Safe Mode. The "right" way is to change the file permissions on the usbstor.sys and usbstor.inf files o that the SYSTEM account is not allowed to read them. This has the same effect as deleting the files, except that it can be more easily undone. (MORE)

Any USB devices as long as the computer has USB Ports. Plugging new USB devices in old computers (older than 3-5 years) might not work as newer devices might use a newer USB version. Generally this rarely happens, I never had an issue of a USB device not working on a computer with USB.
In order to install USB device you must have a driver, USB installers can be obtained or included in some motherboard drivers.
The USB hub can supply power through the USB cable itself. Sometimes, the device requires more power than the hub can provide. In that case, there is usually a power adapter to an outlet in your house to power it and a USB cable to make the connection. Also USB cord supplies power to devices tha…t require less than 500mA(milliamperes) current. (MORE)
Yes, it stores files from a computer. Examples would be: A flash drive, external hard drive, a USB connected digital camera, USB connected ipod or mp3 player. Anything that has memory in it to store data or files and is connected though a USB port.

It is used to store data onto a small flash drive located on the device unlike a hard drive it has an almost instantaneous read-write time however it cannot store nearly as much data.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is actually the name given to the hardware standard that allows for multipurpose input/output with corresponding devices. A USB drive, or USB Mass Storage Device, is one such device that uses USB to allow itself to store certain amounts of data (ex. 4GB of data).
Yes there are many different devices that can be connected to the PS3 USB port, just not to provide internet connection because the PS3 design does not allow a USB internet connection
Virus. Large in comparison to a sd card. Files may get corrupted. Storage space is limited.
A few things to check first. 1) Check to make sure other USB devices work. 2) Check to see if the malfunctioning device works on another computer. 3) Disconnect all hubs from the computer and try a direct connection. 4) Check the cable and make sure it's ok with another device, try a dif…ferent A/B cable if at all possible. Some devices have cables built in, most will let you use your own. Try all those steps first before, this will narrow down WHERE the problem lays. Hope this helps! (MORE)

Is it possible to install a USB device in a Windows 7 computer when you can only obtain Windows 98 drivers for the device?
There shouldn't be any problems with the device. Windows 7 is pretty good at detecting and installing older devices.
A USB port is both and input and output port. Depends on what is connected to it as to which is functions as. Connect a camera and it is an input device. Connect a printer and it is an output device. Connect a printer/scanner and it is both.
