I bought 6 video pens of ebay for 15 pounds. The seller said that they needed their batteries replaced. I did that an not one of them works. I have connected them to the computer and heres some info from device manager.
It comes up as an unknown device.

hardware ids

problem code
Also none of them turn on when i connect a battery. Does anyone know how to check their firmware or hack into them in some way? They are made by a company called Anyka.

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

"It comes up as an unknown device"

Typically, this indicates that the device's third-party driver needs to be installed since Windows does not have a suitable driver of it's own.
There are some Anyka device drivers listed here, but there appears to be no manufacturer's website that I can find (which would have been preferrable):

However, if the pens themselves do not work with fresh batteries, installing a driver isn't going to help. You'll have to take that up with the seller.
