How to fix broken Cruzer Slice 8GB

My cruzer slice 8gb completely broke when i put it into my laptop. the silver connection part came off the usb and when i took it to the IT techs in school to look at it, appparently they can't do anything because the way it's come off, it's taken part of the green board off. Really all i want is all the files on the usb as it's all my school work, which i have no backup to because my computer broke and has been sent to my uncle to repair. I'm not really a tech wiz so i'm not really sure what to do, but some sort of solution or advise would be appreciated.

USB devices like you have can be repaired on a temporary basis. I have reconnected the broken tracks and copied successfully the data over to a new USB device.
An electronics engineer with soldering skills should have no issue with the temporary repair. I have no idea where you are so will not offer a repair service.

SOURCE: how do i use my new sandisk cruzer?

insert the flash drive into your computer and wait for it to be recognised by windows. Once it has been recognised and installed it will tell you that it is installed and ready to use.

The just go to wherever it is on your computer that you have your photos stored, select your photos right click and click on copy, then go to 'my comptuer' and double click on your flash drive to open it and paste your picture there.

Or select your photos, right click, select sent to:- and send to your flash drive, it may be recognised as removable storage.

Make sure you are logged in as an administrator. I'd also try the thumb drive in a different computer just to make sure the problem isn't with the thumb drive itself. The drive could also be unformatted, or formatted with a filesystem for a different platform that can't be read by XP.

My laptop is not able to detect sandisk cruzer blade (8gb) but my friend's laptop and my desktop detects it.


Your laptop may need drivers installed for your flash drive. Visit your USB drive manufacturer's website, find the "Support" page, and download the drivers for your specific drive. Be sure to know what version of your operating system you are running as it may be necessary to ensure you get compatible drivers. Install the drivers and try again.
