    What Windows are you using? Windows XP? If so try updating to SP2, AKA "Service Pack 2" for thumb drives....

Pny 16 gb pen drive not sensing in my hp laptop

have you tried a different usb port? may have to restart, then try a new slot.

also, if it was one of the first 16 gb flash drives to market, it may have failed.

last thing is to try a different computer. if it does work in a different computer, then right click computer, properties. go to device manager, and right click in a blank space. it will say scan for hardware changes, click that.

Im using v165w pen drive.when i connect to pc its not detecting the USB.i also tried with another pc also,the same problem occurs.i tried with both windows7 and windows XP..Wat can i do to solve the...

If two computers(and two different operating systems) arenot detecting the pen drive then most likely there is something wrong with thatpen drive and it needs replaced.

In Windows 7 you can check the following.
Plug the pen drive into an available USB port.
Click the Windows Orb(Start menu in XP). Right-click on "Computer"(My Computer in XP) thenleft-click "Manage". If "Computer" does not exist in the "Start" menuthen it should be on the desktop.
In the left pane click "Disk Management".
In the right pane, the first column will show you the drives currentlyinstalled(C:, D:, E:, etc). C: is typically the drive your operating system isinstalled on. To check what drive is what, just click the Windows Orb(Startmenu in XP) then click "Computer"(My Computer in XP). If you see the same driveletters under "Computer" that you see in Disk Management then the pen drive isnot being detected. Do you hear any sounds coming from Windows when you plug inthe pen drive? If you have a different pen drive is that one beingdetected? Are other USB devices detected when plugged into thecomputer?

My both usb ports r not wrking n hangs when eithr card reader or pen drive is inserted bt works well when tata photon usb port or mouse port or key board port is inserted ?model- EMACHINES E275

Sounds like your laptop's USB ports are not capable of providing enough power to operate your card reader or pen drive. I suggest you buy an active USB hub (one with external power source, rather than the one which draws power from the laptop's USB port), & attach your card reader and/or pen drive to that USB hub.

PXE - E63 error

This error is related to the hard drive.
It could be a faulty connection on the hard drive - try re-seating the hard drive.
The hard drive may be faulty - go into the BIOS and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive may be faulty ot the laptop's hard disk controller could be faulty.
To determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it into an USB hard drive adapter and plug this adapter into a working compute's USB port. If this computer cannot see this hard drive as an external hard drive then this hard drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
When the new hard drive is installed in the Compaq laptop, insert your Windows installation CD and install Windows, plus the Compaq's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

I assume you are inserting the pen drive and it doesn't get detected, correct?
If that is the case check the following:
1. Click "Start"
2. Click on "Run"
3. Type: powercfg.cpl
(press ENTER)

This will bring you to the power options.
4. Inside the “Power Options” on the plan that you have already selected click on the “Change Plan settings”
5. Click on “Change advanced power settings”
6. Scroll to “USB settings”
7. Open the two menus to reach “Settings”
8. Make sure the setting is “Disabled”
9. Click “Apply”
10. Click “OK”

Restart you machine and now try to use your pen drive again.

If this helps, plz come back and grade my answer J
