    I have this pen that supposedly video tapes things. I'm supposed to be able to put whatever I make a video of onto my computer. I have a usb connector line that connects to the usb on the computer and the other end to the pen. That's where I am. No instructions on how to get it from the pen into the computer.Isn't something supposed to come up on the screen and tell me how to proceed? RonT22

    when you connect the pen via USB, is there a sound, or does anything pop up bottom right of the screen about loading device driver.

    Try "my computer2 and see if device is showing....

    Does your desktop or Start menu show an icon labeled "Computer" or "My Computer"? If so, double click on it.

    From the start menu there is computer, when I click on it, it takes me to a box showing 2 hard disc drives c +D and a Kodak flash drive for my printer. That is it. When I plug in the usb chord it says device not recognized, so I imagine I have to try and install a driver or drivers. I have nothing to go by, how do I begin?

    Is there any kind of brand name, model number or FCCID number on the device?

    If not, maybe you can try a Google Image Search for words like video pen recorder and see if you can find a web site with a picture of your device. That site may have more information about drivers and software.

    Found a video on you tube that had a pen like mine but didn't tell me anything I didn't have figured out on my own. Another source said I needed a km player to play the vids, doesn't solve my problem although in the event someone can explain to me how to tranfer the videos to the PC, I'll be ready.Anyway, in the box with the pen they included a micro adapter.Didn't say what it was for, but the memory chip that fits inside the pen, will slide into the slot on the end of the adapter and the adapter is the right size to slide into a slot on the top front of the PC labeledsd/mini mmc/rs/plus/mobile. What is supposed to happen then? I guess the usb chord that plugs into the pen is just a charger. Is the adapter with the chip in it supposed to be transferring the videos into the PC?

    The memory chip most likely has the video(s) on it. The adapter is to make it possible to read the contents of the memory chip using more common memory ports found on some computers these days.

    When the memory chip and adapter are plugged in the computer, the chip should probably show up in "Computer" as a removable drive. Double clicking on it should let you then explore the contents of the memory chip and copy the files to your computer's hard drive.

    That's the problem. It's not recognized. It either needs a special driver (unlikely), or it's defective.
