I bought a "Belkin USB 2.0 File Transfer Cable" about 6 months ago and i have used it maybe 10 times since then and just recently i tried to use it but my computer did not recognise it and it came up saying
"USB Device Not Recognised
One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognise it."

It then says to click this message, so i do and it comes up recommending i reconnect the device. and if this doesn't work then to replace the device.

I have tried the cable on 3 different computers in all their USB ports with both ends of the cable with both XP and Vista OS's. The same message comes up every time. I've used the cable before on these same computers a few times.

Are there any drivers or other software that i need to make it work or fix the cable, or am i completely stuffed?
I am not really prepared to buy another cable as they are not cheap and i would really like for something to make it work

Hopefully someone knows something i don't

If you've tried the cable on 3 different computers, and it doesn't work on any of them, I would say the cable is bad.

I'm not too clear on conductivity, but if it was gold-plated, could the gold have scraped off? When you buy a new one, get an inexpensive silver-colored one, I never noticed a gold performance increase.

the cable needs to be replaced. If you still have the receipt, contact Belkin.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
