Ativa 1GB flash drive not recognized by Windows

I've owned this flash drive for a couple of years and it has performed wonderfully. Today I insert the drive into the USB port and get no recognition as a portable drive on my PC or laptop.

Has it just worn out? Another flashdrive inserted into the USB port works as expected.

The flash drive has a fat 32 file system you must change it to a NTFS file system.
Right click on my computer. find the drive in device manager. double click it. go to policies. select optimize for performance. click ok. then go disk management.to format the drive and select ntfs in file system. I hope that helps.

Unfortunately, you might not be able to retrieve the data off of the flash drive. I would recommend trying to plug it into another computer and see if it is able to get read.

I'm not an expert with PCs, but I have a windows 98 Operating system and have been able to use all sorts of flash drives. Everytime I buy a new one, I just plug it into the USB port and in a short time it recognizes NEW HARDWARE and loads the driver. I've used LEXAR 2GB,SANDISK 4GB, VERBATIM 2GB, and recently a ATIVA 4GB

My U3 Smart SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB USB Drive Not Recognized


We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.

How to install Memorex USB 2.0 1GB flash drive on computer with microsoft 2000 OS


windows 2000 should recognize the flash drive immediately after it is inserted. The flash drive should install itself. Besides, there are only drivers available on the Memorex website for Windows 98se.

Cruzer micro 1.0 GB


Hello,

The Cruzer Micro flash drive either uses a proprietary operating system to function and load its set of utilities that include encryption, etc. or it doesn't... most of them do. Without this intact you drive won't function and be recognized. The Operating System is called U3.

Select this link to download the San Disk format, read/write check utility for your flash drive. It will also report back the need or not for the U3 Launch Pad (to be recognized and run in Windows).

Once you have run the utility and it has offered to format your drive from scratch again, if need be, to get it working as it was, and you've been told the drive supports or requires the U3 Launch Pad select this link to reach the download page and choose between the Titanium or Titanium Plus, download install the appropriate U3 Launch Pad operating system.

As you may already know, your flash drive and all San Disk products have a five year warranty. For what these drives cost today the postage alone to send it in would come awful close to the purchase price of another one. But, the choice is yours.

Me, I'm looking at the Cruzer Voyager 8GB to replace my 2GB drive as the Voyager is shock proof and water proof and has been field tested for several months now. Its available at NewEgg.com here for half the price as when it first came out. Its selling for $59.99 and there is a $20 mail in rebate that makes the final cost even sweeter.

I hope all of the above information gets you going again and has fixed your problem. Please don't forget to rate this as fixed. I'd get your 1GB drive straightened with my solutions and then get an 8GB Voyager at some point.

Regards,
Worldvet
