Sitting with a few N54L in the wild and they have mainly been trouble free from the get-go. The one Win7 machine presented with XBMC problems last week that turned out to be wacky permission settings that did not allow XBMC to update its own library from some random arbitrary date. Took ownership of the settings folder etc etc and everything was back on track.
Today I'm contacted because another Win7 machine is not picking up any USB flash drives all of a sudden (open to interpretation). Did the standard trouble shooting over the phone but had to remote into the machine in the end. Images edited as required.
First did a scan for new hardware:
But that failed:
Device manager does pick up the drives ("JumpDrive") but presents with a nice little yellow triangle. Tried to update the driver directly:
It searched for a driver online, found one, but got this error in the end:
Access denied? A few hours of googling later points me to a ... permissions error. What is it with Win7 and permissions? I checked all the permissions mentioned, and then a few extra, but everything seemed 100% fine. What am I missing here? Anyone ever had a problem like this?
