Problem with 8 GB Micro Vault Classic USB Flash Drive (vista)

  • John Morrison Sep 25, 2008

    Thanks for your suggestions; however:



    - the flash drive DOES WORK with other computers

    - it IS detected when I put into usb port, the computer says it is working properly, (but it is not); it does not start AUTO PLAY like the other external flash/external drives...

    - I cannot see it in Windows Explorer

    - it does show up in Computer Management under MANAGE, but I cannot access it

    - obviously if it works with other computers, it does not need to be formatted.



    I have cleaned and optimized the registry several times...

You did not state the problem.
here, just answer this:
1. does it work with other computers?
2. when you insert it in the usb port, is it detected and "...device...ready to be used..." ???
3. can you see it in Windows Explorer?
4. if not, check if it needs formatting
..ok you're set!

    how about the machine that you're hooking up to, does other usb flash drives work as well? You might have some compatibility issues with that device...not sure though unless you have an extra hard disk to do an out-of-the-box-state reinstall on the machine. Then you do a first thing approach :-)

    goodluck if you want to try it.

Plug into USB port... recognizes device when I click on it from my computer tells me to format the drive... I try but the format fails.?


Is your usb drive locked? The micro vault classic has a lock switch on it. This prevents you from writing data to it. Please make sure that is not in the lock position. Then plug it back into your pc and you can go ahead and format it.
