1 Answer

Can't use my flash drive

I am not able to use my flashdrive(DataTraveler100-8GB ). When I
connect the device to my system, although Windows detects the device
properly, the device fails to start.(On the Device Manager
>Properties- a message as follows is displyed:Windows failed to start
the device-error code45) . I think this problem started when my
friend accidentally tried to boot Windows from the flashdrive when
the device was empty. What is the real problem?. Please help me as
quickly as possible.

You can try formatting the drive by using "HP USB drive format utility". Try first with FAT and then FAT32 do not format it in NTFS. It's free. Download it by Googling. You can even try in a different computer, sometimes due to driver problem also it happens. Best of luck.

My toshiba external hard drive won't be opened


Some external storage devices work poorly or not at all when connected to a hub; try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer. Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management". Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System. Check the Drive's status in Device manager. This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation. Check Partition and Format. Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges Insert your removable disk into the USB port. Click Start, right click on computer and select manage. Now, click Disk Management. Check whether drive letter for the device is present. Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc). If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter. If it is, change it to unused drive letter. Hope this helps.

My computer which runs Windows 7 can not detect my Jetflash 500 16gb flashdrive


It should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

My flashdrive won't respond at all. I think that it was somehow disconnected on the inside, but I have no way of knowing. Is there any way that I can retrieve the data or fix the flashdrive?


you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/articles/undelete-files-from-usb-drive.html
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the flash drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the flash drive and recover your files.

When I plug my flashdrive in it wont recongnize it and it wont even light up anymore. It just worked the other day and now it doesn't! Whats wrong? Please help all of my school work is on it!!


Hello,

First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0.

Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.

This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.

After making sure about this, power up your system, and plug the flash drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your Flash Drive to be detected automatically.

You can also try it out on a friend's system.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck!

Imation Swivel Flash Drive Cant detect


is it several times that youve used your flash driver at your office? and which side of the usb port did you plug it? coz when it is your first time to use your flash drive at your office and your plugging it at the front side of the PC. well there might be something wrong with connection and may cause damage to the board of the flash drive. if it your using it several times, well try to check at your PC, then do the following specs:

my computer (right click and select manage)
and under manage window ( select disk management )
try to see if your flash drive registered (you can see the drives of your PC) and see if theres a volume (either raw/ or theres a partition on it).

if not, well the board of your flash drive might be damaged, mostly these were caused by the power of the system, fluctuation is one of them, then improper plugging of the flashdrive.

Flashdrive wont start


Delete all your USB drivers from device manager and then restart your computer. This will allow the computer to re-detect and install them. This should fix your problem.

You can get to device manager by opening control panel, then system, hardware, then device manager.

Cruzer micro 2.0GB does not work anymore, it started flashing and then it stopped. When connected to USB port the computer does not start and when connected afterwards the device is not recognized by the...


Some times it happens that Windows explore do not recognise the USB flash drives. There may be some causes: 1. Ckheck your flash drive & ensure that it was not burnt or have any physical damage. 2. Start the computer without flash drive and connect the flash drive to it. Noe ensure that your computer is not hanged.If your computer hanged than the flash drive is damaged. 3. if your computer is not hanged and not dectecting the drive,(fore windows) go to My computer, right click, properties, divice manager. In the device list see USB serial bus controllers. click + next to it to see the sub devices. 4. Now see that the computer has a listing for the flash drive. The listing may be as "Usb mass storage device", "Drive company name: etc. 5. If there is listing no listing for flash drive just disconnect it and see the device manager listing. some changes will occur or mouse pointer will show busy. Again reconnect the flash drive the same thing happens. 6. if your flash drive worked as in step 5 that means the the drive is ok and the compueter is ok. There is prblem with driver of flash drive that is currently installed. Please upgrade the driver from your flash drive manufacturer or it is ready to use device just unuinstall it from the device manager listing. Restart the computer. after restart connect the flash drive it will detect the drive. 7. if there is still a problem go to start run & type regedit and press enter to run registry editor. In Hkey_local_machine>software>Cruzer micro and delete it. restart the computer. 8. You wrote that if you connect it to USB port computer does not start. If above step 1 to 7 does not work means there is strong possibality of reading problem means the flash drive has errors on it and file system is damaged. This same thing happens with Cd drive with a cd having corroupt file system. i will prefer to take the flah drive to an local hardware expert or manufacturere.
