My computer wont detect my USB flash drive

When I plug my USB flash drive into my PC, the computer doesnt detect that its in the USB port. Therefore, I cant access any of my files on my flash drive. I need to know how I can access these files so I can, at least, store them on another storage device.

Flash drives do not need a drivers (plug and play). There are several possibilities:

1. Assumptions: USB port error, computer drivers normal, normal flash drive.
Solution: insert a flash drive into another USB port. If the USB port 1 is not detected, insert flash drive into a USB 2, USB 3 or USB 4.
2. Assumption: normal USB ports, computer driver error, a normal flash drive
Solution: reinstall the chipset drivers, or USB.
3. Assumption: normal USB port,
computer driver normal, flash drive is broken
Solution: try to insert the flash drive into another computer. If the flash drive is not detected, it means your flash drive is damaged.

Solution to determine the cause of damage:
1. If you have a USB mouse, use the mouse to check the damage to the USB port. Example: connect the mouse to the USB 1, USB 2, USB 3 or USB 4. If every USB port, mouse is detected, the conclusion normal USB port
2. To check your computer's drivers, right-click My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager

3. If points 1 and 2 are normal, the possibility of flash drive damaged.
Because the new flash drive, flash drive is most likely normal. Based on experience, cause damage to the flash drive is a USB port is dirty. The USB port is dirty, can cause short-circuit flash drive. The characteristics of short-circuit flash drive. When inserted into a USB flash drive (about 5 seconds), the temperature of the flash drive become extremely hot. If there are problems like this, immediately unplug the flash drive, to prevent permanent damage.

I hope this information helps.

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in


Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

Computer isn't noticing USB is there. USB is not lighting up orange.


Try another USB port, to see if you have a "dead" USB port.

Try the flash-drive in a different computer, to see if the flash-drive is "dead".

Try a different USB device in the USB port on your computer, to see if _any_ device in that port can be detected.

I have an enclosure. The disk spins but won't register on the computer. Thinking there's something wrong with the electronics.


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 external 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 external 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 external Drive to be detected automatically.

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

My computer cannot detect my transcend 8gb jetflash v30


Sounds like time to return the faulty Flash Drive. Anything that gets hot during use, without a fan, is broken. All the computer's USB port is doing is providing is power to your small heater. Not good.

USB port problems


Try going into the BIOS and see if the USB Ports are enabled. I don't know what type of system you have. When you turn on the pc it will prompt 'F1 to enter setup' or it might be F10. Do you have a USB mouse or keyboard? Try those in different ports.
