SOURCE: transcend 1 GB removeable Pen drive is not detected

Its most likely that the device is dead and the data is not recoverable, no software will work as it does not show as a drive. You could send it to a data recovery expert like LC Technology, they helped me on a similar issue.

There will be 3 reasons of this problems.

If you not not connects this drive properly to system it will show drive property 00 bytes. If you has set up password for this drive then this problem will appeared OR drive is damaged & stopped working. If you trying to connect memory card then change your card reader.

If this flash drive in warranty period then go to authorized service center & give it for replacement.

I could n't access my files in my pendrive JF V30


Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

How to copy a doc. file to the flash drive.


Ok. here is what you need to do.

1. Hook your flash drive to any of the usb slot in your computer.
see image below bcfce55.jpg

Wait for the system to read it. A green arrow icon will appear in the taskbar to show that a new removable hardware device is connected. After it successfully recognized, It will display a message " The device is installed and ready to use" at the lower right portion of the windows taskbar.

Click on My Computer a new drive will appear. It is usually designated as removable drive. On this drive you will paste the copied doc files. It is the assigned drive for your flash drive.

So go on., copy all the files you need to carry and paste it in the flash drive.

Be reminded also that before you unhook the flash drive from the computer, right click first on the green arrow icon on the taskbar and stop the operation. Click stop on the flash drive. This will turn off the remaining applications / readings in the flash drive and will prevent it from crashing and file corrupting.

I hope you understand.
Please give me some good ratings as this will help me too.
Thanks.

How do you save files on a sandisk cruzer flash drive?


Insert the cruzer into the usb port. You should see a message pop up and say new hardware found and then flash off. It may also say usb memory or storage device or even recognize it as the cruzor. This recognition process is fairly quick say 5-10 seconds. After that the computer knows what the cruzer is and its ready for use.

The cruzer is now seen as another drive or storage drive on your computer. Your hard drive is usually C , the CD/DVD would be D drive and the cruzer would be seen as E. If you are in a program and want to save to the cruzer you open the file/save and you should see E drive or Cruzer if not click on my computer and look for it there. Once you find it just click on it and then hit save/ok. Thats all there is to using one. Once you know how to find it as a save option or a loading option then you just treat it like a hard drive.

Once you get it sorted out you will use it a lot. They are very handy.

Sandisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB Flash Drive, destroying files


run a check disk on the memory stick - most likely a good indicator that the flash drive is on its way out as they normally have a life span of about a year or two.
