Question about Computers & Internet
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 V188.8.131.52.rar
you can open the rar file with winrar or 7-zip. Inside is
Super Stick Recovery Tool V184.108.40.206.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!

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

Try to connect the USB flash drive on a different USB por on your computer and if possible try to connect the flash drive on a different computer and if still not detected on different computer the falsh drive is already defective and needs a replacement already.....
Hope that helps................
