The possibility of fixing a USB drive isn't good. The contacts that connect the USB connectors to the drive itself are very small and very hard to solder. (they are soldered by computer from the factory). I would by more worried about the USB port on the computer that it would still work after you pull the pieces of the connector out of that port.

Good luck.

When I insert the USB into the port, the light flashes then goes off and it seems that it is not recognized..


Try a friend's computer or another computer that can read your files. If it doesn't work, then it's a bad pen drive. It should come onto the desktop of any device as an icon.....double click it to open of course.

My Transcend v30 pendrive is not working i had checked it in other computers but it was not working


Sometimes when a flashmemory stick or USB external hard drive fails because it was not removed fromthe USB port properly. If the device is removed byjust pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, youmust click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select thedevice you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so When the flash memoryUSB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restoreit by reformatting it. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - AdministrativeTools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted itwill indicate that it is Healthy.

My verbatim 4GB flash drive broke. The metal


If the metal piece just came out of the plastic casing, you may try reconnecting it to the computer and see if it would be detected by the computer. If it's detected, back up all the files.

But if the metal piece broke off, sorry but there's no way to fix it.

Now, you may look for a Data Recovery Center near you. The Data Recovery Centers are computer shops or stores that offers data restoration, back up or retrieval.

Hope these helps and have a great day!
