    I have the exact same problem. Verbatim's 8GB Store N Go retractable red (type 4) flash drive with Windows XP. The worst part- I have my Ph.D. dissertation files on it that I need badly. I've tried a bunch of data recovery software packages but they don't work. Tried accessing it on multiple computers- even a Mac and Linux with no success. Tried rolling back and updating the driver but didn't make any difference. Windows says its working properly. I asked Verbatim tech support about it and they recommended 2 data recovery companies that want up to $1600 to recover the data, if they can. I don't have that kind of money. Anyone figure out how to fix this???

I have the same issue with a 4GB Store N Go, works fine on my Vista PC at home but after copying a 3.5GB file to it and then later trying to copy that file to my XP machine at work, it keeps disconnecting and failing with, "The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid". I really wanted the file off the drive, so what I tried was using "Robocopy.exe" (in restartable mode, waiting 5 seconds between each retry) from the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit. Once you have a copy of this, you need to open a Command Prompt, change into a directory (CD\<foldername>) where you want to copy the file to, then swap to the USB drive and use the following command;
Robocopy Drive1 Drive2 /Z /W:5
E.g.: If the USB drive is D: and your hard drive is C: with a folder on it called "Backup" (where you want to copy the files to).. do the following;
Start - Run: CMD <Enter>
C: <Enter>
MD Backup <Enter> (If the folder doesn't already exist)
CD Backup <Enter>
(Note: Assumes robocopy.exe is in your PATH or the same folder)Robocopy D: C: /Z /W:5
This will probably take quite some time, depending on the number of files/size... but it did work for me (eventually).

Verbatim store n go usb flash drive 8 gb device not recognized

My Verbatim Sto N Go 8GB USB Flash Drive does not work in any port, in any computer. When I plug it in, the "Device is not recognized" error comes up. When I click on it, and the Unknown Device Properties comes up, the device status reads: "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."

The driver details read:
Provider: Advanced Micro Devices
File Version: built by: WinDDK
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility

This is the 2nd drive of this same brand that quit working within 6 months. I have MONTHS of work on files in this drive, and would hate to have to redo all that work! I was real careful after the first one went bad to use the eject button when removing it from my computer. But I am thinking the last time I clicked the eject button, it froze, so I just pulled it out without the message coming up. Hopefully there is someway to get the computer to recognize this drive again???
