I bought an internet camera with a USB cable, no microphone jack, but it has a built in microphone.
So you want to use your phone while driving. Good idea! Smartphones are good navigators.
However, you may stumble over two problems.
1. Where to put it
The three good ways to mount a smartphone in your care are these:
a) A suction cup windshield holder
b) A ventilation grille holder
c) A glue-to-the-dashboard holder
My current favorite is the ventilation grille holder. It has a whole range of advantages:
My Windows Xp Pro based system, SP-2, suddenly quit recognizing my USB external hard drive (Seagate) and my 12 in 1 card reader (SanDisk) My Palm Pilot and Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combo were unaffected.
I can move the devices around to different USB ports but the result is still the same....the devices are not seen. I have reinstalled drivers, but no joy.
These devices work just fine on all my other workstations.
Thanks in advance!
I recently got myself a new keyboard, the fairly expensive Razer Tarantula. One of the key features of this keyboard is its so called Anti-Ghosting, which is more precisely described as 10-key rollover over USB. (k-key rollover denotes the ability of keyboards to correctly handle a situation in which k keys are pressed simultaneously, independent of the combination pressed) However, to use it, you need to know the secret code!
I plugged in my USB today and my files are all coded. Every single one.
I go to open a word document (my USB is predominately filled with word documents) and a box appears that says "File converter" and the name of my file. It then asks me to pick an encoding that will make my document readable [ 1. Windows (default), 2. MS- DOC (D has an underscore under it) and 3. Other encoding), non of which do because it is all in giberish code.
Can someone please help?? i really don't want to hear there's nothing i can do, because i don't want to lose my files.
I've installed XP sp2 in my computer, everything is working good. The problem is with a icon, i cant see it whenever I connect my ipod into a USB. The icon appears if i restart my computer with the ipod attached to the USB.
If anybody can help me to see my icon back without restarting my computer! thanks.
