I put whiskey in my metal flask and 24 hours later it tastes like metal. Is that normal?


It's normal if the flask is made of inexpensive metal. My recommendation is that you either use a more costly metal flask you simply drink faster!

I am a student in school, and I am not to computer savvy on Flash drive.. It did not come with any instructions on how to use it. It is a Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive (4GB) Can you help me with step-by-step...


  • Boot up your computer and find an open USB port. These are small, rectangular ports typically on the sides or backs of laptop computers, or on the fronts or backs of desktop towers.

  • Plug your flash drive into the USB port. The drive will slide in only if it is turned in the right direction, so if you have trouble inserting it, turn it over.

  • Make sure your computer sees the flash drive. It should launch a menu, letting you know that it has found a new storage device. You can choose an option from the menu or close the menu if you don't need to immediately access the flash drive.

  • Install the flash drive's driver if your computer doesn't recognize the flash drive. The flash drive's packaging should include the manufacturer's website address. Open your Internet browser, go to that address, and download the flash drive's driver from the site. Install the driver on your computer. After that, your computer should be able to recognize your drive.

    Broken usb flash drive


    The data is not destroyed, but it will be tricky to fix. I would suggest you find a local computer tech who is really good soldering tiny stuff. Or go to a Radio/TV repair shop. I think it will be possible to re-connect the wires and make it work.

    Travel Drive Broke


    It depends on your skill level as to if it can be fixed or not. The data is most likely still safely stored on the flash chip inside the drive casing. However, the USB connector has been just ripped off. If you have any experience soldering it would be as simple as getting a replacement usb plug from an electronics store or cutting a cable you have and then soldering the USB connector back to the flash drive inside the casing. This is something than can be done at home or possible by a repair shop that does any type of soldering work(tv, radios, ect) Most computer repair shops will look at you silly if you ask them to solder a thumb drive back to life. I would not expect more than to be able to mount your drive and copy the data. Odds are after you cut it out of the casing it will never go back in correctly.

    Good Luck

    My verbatim 4GB flash drive broke. The metal


    If the metal piece just came out of the plastic casing, you may try reconnecting it to the computer and see if it would be detected by the computer. If it's detected, back up all the files.

    But if the metal piece broke off, sorry but there's no way to fix it.

    Now, you may look for a Data Recovery Center near you. The Data Recovery Centers are computer shops or stores that offers data restoration, back up or retrieval.

    Hope these helps and have a great day!
