Try going to the control panel, system, hardware, device manager. Find your USB devices in the tree. Right click on them all, and uninstall all of them. Reboot your computer and you may be able to install your USB devices from scratch.

If this dies not work, post your computer type and what system you are running: XP? VISTA? [WIN95? :-) ]

USB port not reconizing


The time delay depends on the following factors:
  • Host controller hardware
  • Attached hubs
  • Attached devices
  • USB driver versions
  • Support for USB 2.0
  • Additional system hardware or configurations that may change the timing

Method 1: Initiate recognition of the USB device by using Device ManagerTo initiate recognition of the USB device by using Device Manager, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. The Device Manager window opens.
  2. Click to select your computer as the location for the scan.
  3. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.

    Windows XP recognizes the new device.
  4. Close the Device Manager window.
If this method resolves the issue, you are finished.
Method 2: Restart the computer To initiate recognition of the USB device, first unplug the USB device and restart the computer. Then, wait five to ten seconds before you plug the USB device into the computer or hub. Windows XP recognizes the new device.

If this method does not resolve the issue, you might want to review the articles in the "Similar Problems and Solutions" section, or contact Support.

The thumb drive might have some fault.
Plug it in other OS mainly windows XP and Linux.
If still same problem persists after tried in Linux, problem is with pen drive.
You can ask for a replacement from the dealer as it has guarantee for 5years.

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.
