    Actioncam not detected


    Would very much appreciate guidance on how I can persuade my W10 Pro 32 bit PC (version 1909) to detect my action camera.

    Please bear in mind that my knowledge on these matters is minimal and I may inadverently misuse terminology.

    Last summer, I had no problems connecting the same actioncam, via USB cable, and copying video files from the actioncam to the PC. I didn't need to install any additional software (drivers?) - it just worked.

    Late last year the PC had slowed to a crawl and took several minutes to start up so, after a half day of 'research', I took advice from a website and disabled some Windows software (apps/services/processes or whatever) from starting using Task Manager. This was months ago and I certainly can't remember what I disabled. Disabling this software made a small difference so I left it disabled. The PC continued to work adequately for my non-intensive needs until yesterday when I connected the same actioncam that had worked fine over last summer and now the PC doesn't even detect it. The actioncam isn't visible in File Explorer - it's like the USB connecting lead is broken (so I've tried two more leads to the same effect).

    I've searched for similar problems and checked a couple of tutorials on this forum but, with my limited grasp of terminology (so not sure of search terms) I haven't found any info. on a camera not being detected (most similar problems concern Autoplay).

    Grateful for any pointers.
    PS I saw that CameraMonitorApplication was disabled in Task Manager so I have enabled that (to no effect).

    :)

  2. Windows phone is not detecting

    Hi Vijay,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to connect the phone to another computer and check if it gets detected. Also, check if the phone gets detected by connecting with a different USB cable.

    I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter by following the steps below:

    • Click on the Start button, and type “Troubleshooting” on the search bar.
    • Click on “hardware and devices”.
    • A pop-up will appear, click on the “Next” button and follow the on-screen prompts for troubleshooting.

    Hope the information is helpful. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Battery not detected (Unknown remaining)

    Hi,

    First of all I suggest you to try with a driver remove and reinstall with Device Manager. To do so:

    1. Press WINDOWS + X

    2. Click on "Device Manager"

    3. Click on "Battery"

    4. Right click on the first element on list

    5. Click on "Remove"

    6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the second element on list

    7. Click on "Detects Hardware change" (monitor icon)

    Then reboot your system and check if the problem still exists.

    Please tell me if the solution works.
