I don't you can solve this at home. You need expert that have hardware and software to retreive your data for you.

The reason you get this message is because your flash drive lost the header to tell the computer how to retreive your info.

Refuses formatting


Depending on operating system you are running, you should not need to load any drivers for a zip drive to install. Have you changed the disk in the drive, just like the floppy format, zip disks can fail too.

Code 43 errors are nearly always caused by a driver issue. However, since you have tried the device in several different computers with the same result, I believe that your flash drive has gone bad or become damaged. Unfortunately this is not an uncommon problem with flash drives. Like any storage device on the computer, make sure you are backing up what is on your flash drive.

I hope this is helpful to you

Put in my dane elec 16 gb flash key on my computer window ex and other computer window 2007 not recognized its malfunctioned. light is out... need to get all my important files out..


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive to working order you need to format the flash drive,BUT you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

I have a Dane-Elec 4 GB Flash drive. I used it successfully one time, but the next time I put it in my computer (or any computer after that) the computer recognized the new device but told me "Please...


1) Instead of double-clicking, right-click and choose "explore." I hope it's that simple. Once you're in, look for a file called autorun.inf. Delete it.

2) If it won't let you explore, see if there is a "format" option instead. This will possibly solve your issue of access, and will solve your issue with your confidential data (of course, your data will be gone, but I'm guessing you're OK with that).

3) Try using another USB slot, sometimes there could be an issue with specific slots, especially if you are using hte front USB ports on a desktop
4) I know this may seem silly but turn off the computer, and then unplug the computer from the wall. Leave it unplugged for 30 seconds, plug it in and then boot up the systems. Plug in the USB drive.

5) Finally if the unit still is not being seen, it may need a low level format, contact the manufacturer and see about getting a replacement. I found their e-mail at onlinesupport@dane-memory.com

the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
