Ok, so I just searched Google for about 5 hours trying to figure out how to fix the USBest USB2flashStorage USB problem. What happened is the part of the memory that tells the computer how to access the drive and how big the drive is got corrupted. You need a program called "Super Stick Recovery Tool" made by kingmax. Don't worry that your drive isn't a kingmax drive, it will work anyway because it is just going to completely write over that little part of the drive that got corrupted. just go to "http://www.kingmax.com/en_04_download.asp?usn=2" and download
Super Stick Recovery Tool V1.0.2.19.rar
you can open the rar file with winrar or 7-zip. Inside is
Super Stick Recovery Tool V1.0.2.19.exe. Run it as administrator with the drive plugged in and click "Update"
about 5 minutes later-- Problem solved!

*Warning* This erases everything on the drive, I have no clue how to get data off of it before you do this, but at least you can have a working jump drive rather than a paper weight.

Just so you know, I only tested this on a Verbatim 8 Gb drive that had the exact same problems you described. I tried lots of other tools and they didn't work. Super Stick Recovery Tool Rocks!

    12/10/2010: This program is the absolute Best!!! I am a tinkerer with freeware and components and I used my Thumb Drive religiously. I did not want to give in and chuck the Drive. SullyDog...you are the best! New version of the program is even better. I got my drive back and will attempt to recover what I can in personal files. Completely satisfied. Highly recommended!!!!!

    Merci sullydog101 pour ton info qui vient de me dépanner ma clé USB EMTEC de 16 Go.
    J'avais le problème depuis 2 ans et je croyais que cela venais de mon tuner tnt qui ne pouvait pas enregistrer au-delà d'1h30. En fait ma clé USB était limité à 3,5 Go, mais je ne le voyais pas.
    Par contre ton logiciel n'a pas fonctionné pour moi. Soit cela vient de la clé soit de mon OS (Seven).
    mais j'ai trouvé sur le site que tu donnes un autre utilitaire qui m'a dépanné dans les mêmes conditions d'utilisation que tu donnes.
    Pour info, il s'agit de "UFD_Recovery tool V1.0.1.0"

    J'écris en Français car je suis de l'Aveyron en France, mais les traducteurs sur internet ont supprimé la barrière des langues.

    A et merci encore

Hey, if anyone is having a problem with the usbest usb2 flash storage pens, try my solution! I was having the problem - computer recognizes, but when selected says 'please insert disc into drive d'.after searching the net, with no luck, I decided to open it up (its really easy, just unclips). Then I just moved the silver cylindrical thing a few times. I then inserted the usb and the L.E.D flashed once, good sign! The icon on bottom right of screen said unknown device, not installed properly.which was unusual. I then took the pen out, and put it in slowly, just untill the light came on.after the pc installed it, I could insert it all the way, and its been working fine ever since!hope this helps someone! d

Usb stick not usable


Because its beyond 4Gb that's why its already detected as a disk drive.

You can still save your files here. Have you already tried?

If so, what is the exact error you are getting?

Dvr no longer recognizes hard drive


Try switching around some wires.
If that doesn't work then it might be damaged.
I suggest plug it into another computer to see if it still works. Find out if it's the hard drive or the computer.

My Windows XP is no longer recognizing my cruzer 8gb


With the flash drive plugged into your computer, go to start>settings>control panel>administrative tools>computer management>disk management
Your flash drive should be there. Right click it and select "change drive letter and paths." Click on "change." Change the drive letter.
Just follow the directions to finish.

Sometimes, if you turn the computer on, insert the flash drive, and reboot, the drive will show up, it is detected on start along with your other drives.

(I recommend starting at the end of the alphabet (Z) and work backwards when selecting the drive letters for flash drives, that way, in the future it will be easier to recognize them.)

It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.
