Lexar JumpDrive... | Answered on Dec 27, 2012


There may be times when all you may need to do is to reinstall a software program. When this happens, having a backup copy is much more convenient than relying on a total system restore. Hours are saved, frustration is curbed and getting back on track and up and running in record time are among the real benefits of keeping separate duplications of your software handy. Learn how to make a backup copy of your valued software so you'll always be ready to reinstall it in an emergency situation. Access the "Control Panel" from the Start menu. Select the "Performance and Maintenance" category. Select "Back Up Your Data" from the Task menu. Use the "Back and Restore Wizard" option and then click "Next." Select "Back Up Files and Settings." Select the option "Let Me Choose What to Back Up" and then click "Next." Select the software you would like to back up. Typically, it is located in a similar location: "My Computer, C: Program Files." Note: Check the box next to the software you would like to back up. Click on "Finish" to begin the backup process. When finished, click "Close" to exit. Hope this helps.

Lexar Echo ZE... | Answered on Oct 22, 2012


You have to download the drivers and software from Lexmark.
Here's the link to the download. (best to copy and paste)
I'm assuming you're using Windows 7. The file you need is dated 6/21/11. there are two on the list - one for 32 bit and one for 64 bit Windows7. If you click on your PC's START button, then right click on "COMPUTER" then click on "PROPERTIES", you will see either 32 bit or 64 bit operating system listed in the popup window.

Lexar 64MB FLASH... | Answered on Oct 05, 2012


click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X

you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers


if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem


check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually ((red white green black)) make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts


or
PRODUCT NAME
FRONTX USB Type A Internal

PRODUCT CODE
CPX101-2

BAY USAGE
Half of large bay

CONNECTORS
USB type A female
1x5 header connector female

CABLE
USB cable (UL 2725)
Length - 2.5 feet (762 mm)


WIRE ASSIGNMENTS



Red: + 5V / Voltage + / VCC
White: D - / Data - / USB -
Green: D + / Data + / USB +
Black: GND / Voltage - / Ground
Black: S-GND / Over Current / Shielding

The S-GND wire is fatter and can be easily recognized. The connection of S-GND wire to the header pin is optional.

HEADER CONNECTION GUIDES


Diagram 1: On most motherboards, the USB header/pin-out consists of 9 pins arranged in 2 rows, which allows for 2 USB connections (i.e. USB1 and USB2). Normally, the pins for USB1 and USB2 are in seperate rows.
Diagram 2: Simply plug the connector onto the 5-pins row, and make sure that the pin assignments and wire assignments are matched correctly.
Diagram 3: Alternatively, you can plug the connector onto the 4-pins row, and leave the S-GND wire unconnected.
You might have to rearrange the wires to match with the pin assignments, or change the header connector if necessary, depending on the layout of the USB header.
On some motherboards, there is a NC pin in the USB header. You can connect the S-GND wire onto this pin. NC simply means "no connection" and NC pin is an "empty" pin.
2X5 PINS HEADER
Refer to the diagram below, for 2x5 pins header, simply plug the connector onto one row of the pins, and always make sure that pin assignments and wire assignments are matched correctly. You might have to rearrange the wires if necessary.


2X4 PINS HEADER
Refer to the diagram below, for 2x4 pins header, simply plug the connector onto one row of the pins. Please note that there is no S-GND pin in this header. You can leave the S-GND wire unconnected. You might have to rearrange the wires if necessary, in such that the wire assignments and pins assignments are matched correctly.



ACTIVE PINS NOT IN THE SAME ROW

On some motherboards, the 4 active pins are not located in the same row, as shown in the example below:

To connect to this type of USB header, you need to change the header connector to 2x5. Simply rearrange the wires within the 2x5 connector to match with the pin assignments. If the green wire is connected to the USB2+ pin, the white wire must be connected to the USB2- pin. The red wire can be connected to any +5V pin, and the black (GND) wire to any GND pin. If there is no S-GND pin provided, you can leave the S-GND wire unconnected.

Lexar Media Echo... | Answered on Sep 23, 2012


If it's still a usable card, I would suggest just placing it back into your camera and then connecting it via USB cord.

If that doesn't work, check if your computer has a slot for SD cards. If it does, try placing the card in one of the slots gently.

You might have locked memory card. If not first try to connect memory card to PC with memory card reader and try to copy your stuff... then after you take all stuff try to format it.

w7

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:


Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.



In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".



Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".



Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.
