For starters, what is the operating system of this computer?
Windows XP will recognise flash drives, 2000 seems to recognise some but if you have 95, 98 or Me you need to install a driver for the drive. The manufacturer of the drive may not even supply one.

Amber flashing light GX620


LOL... If you haven't already fried your motherboard by using your modified PSU (And that's a big IF), then you need to buy a new PSU with similar specs and connection plugs (ie. a 24pin main) as the original PSU that came with the PC.

Hi im new at this and not shure how to use this 4gb flash drive,i installed it in to the usb port and nothing came up ,can you help to tell me how you work it i have a sony pc with windows xp


Firstly, make sure you're logged in an admin account
  1. Click Start > Run
  2. Type diskmgmt.msc & press Enter
  3. If the initialisation wizard doesn't pop up automatically, scroll down the bottom half of the list to find your flash drive (starts with disk 0, disk 1 etc).
  4. Right click the unallocated space of the flash drive and click Format
  5. Follow the onscreen prompts.
If you can't see your flash drive in the list, try another USB port.

VAIO desktop does not recognize Sandisk flash drive


Most probably you have a drive letter conflict? If so, right click "My computer" choose "Manage" and locate "Disk management" - here, in the middle lower panel, you should be able to find your usb-memory stick, right click it and assign it a drive letter that you're sure is not in use.

Unrecognized Flash Drive


Check out if the USB ports are 1.1 or 2.0
Your computer may use 1.1 and not see the newer 2.0

I bent the insert on the drive and it work?


I would first try it in a different computer. If it does not work on the other computer it is unlikely it would work anywhere. It is possible you can take it to a local computer tech service and they can try and read or fix it, but I would think it is unlikely.

If it does work on the other computer I would inspect the USB port for damage on your computer. Or the place where you plug in the flash drive into the computer, if it looks at all damaged, I would contact the manufacture for repair. You can also try other usb devices to check if it still works.

As well if the flash drive does work on other computers, and there is no visible damage to the USB port, or plug in spot, then there may be a driver or software issue on your computer.

Flash drive not working


An option that you could do is to plug the flash drive in the back of the computer. The reason is because flash drives derive power from the USB port itself unlike other usb devices that you are using may have their own power or because the USB port in front does not give as much power as the one from the back.

U3 Flash Drives - What Are They and How to Remove U3 Software if Desired


U3 Smart Drives are regular USB flash drives with a twist. Programs can be installed on them and the data from those programs will travel with you. In other words, U3 Drives are computers on a stick. Although the technology is relatively new (the company started in January 2005), there is a wide variety of programs that can be used on these supercharged USB drives. 
One of the most important advantages of using a U3 enabled flash drive is the ability to take your documents, photos, email, address book, favorites, webpage logins, and more with you wherever you go.  


Of course you can backup all these files on a normal USB flash drive or other removable device, but the advantage of using a U3 drive is the programs along with the data are on the USB drive. This means you'll be able to work on a report, view photos, look up an email address, and more simply by plugging the device into a computer and pulling it up. You dont necessarily have to take a laptop with you anymore to get your work done. 

You can't make a "normal" USB flash drive into a U3 enabled drive. The U3 system software is pre-loaded on the drives and cannot be added to a normal drive. When a U3 drive is plugged into a computer, it creates two drives. One is a CD drive with the system software on it and the other is a removable drive that you can use to store information.

I didn't click safely remove hardward device when I took out my flash drive, now it won't recognize my flash drive at all. It will work on other computers so I know the flash drive doesn't have a problem.


This should have nothing to do, with the safely remove hard ware option.

Plug the USB key back in and check your device manager for conflicts? If the usb key is listed as a conflict, uninstall it and then reconnect your usb key.

Also, is this computer on a network... if so, it may be a coincedence, and a entire issue all together.

Put it this way, if the USB ports on your computer still work with other devices, and your flash drive works with other computers... nothing is wrong with either. Something is just probably conflicting with it

Front usb 2.0 drives not working????


what you do is open up your computer case and find the cable that connects from your USB drive that leads to your motherboard. Unconnect it from your motherboard and reconnect it, it should give you the sound of device connected. What you probably safely removed your USB drives instead of your flash drive.

Computer won't start up!


Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
