exactly the same thing has happened to be before, but I was able to solve the problem using Avira Anti-virus.
Here is what you have to do to get your flash drive working again;
Install Avira Anti virus on on your computer. If you don't have Avira anti-virus software, go to www.avira.com, on the Avira home page, you will see Free download. Click on the free download. Allow the software download on your computer. Go to the location where the software was download and click on the software to have it installed on your computer.
After the Avira nti-virus has been successfully or completely installed on your computer, insert the data-traveler 8GB into the USB port of your computer.
The moment the data-traveler 8GB is inserted, the Anti virus will pop out with a dialogue box alerting you about virus detected on the data-traveler 8GB.
Select 'Delete...", and the box might pop out over and over. Just keep selecting delete until the whole virus is deleted from the data-traveler 8GB and your flash will be okay.
You can format the data-traveler 8GB thereafter or right click on the data-traveler 8GB from 'My computer' and scan the drive with Avira anti virus.
This should fix the problem you are facing presently. But if it does not solve the problem, please let me know so that I can give the next step to taking.
Hello, Try re-inserting it a few times. If not recognised, click for troubleshooting and see driver details. If it says that device drivers either not required or not installed, it means the device drivers required to make the data traveller function are not installed in it. This is a manufacturing defect. You can get a replacement for free from your dealer.
First, you should know your pen drive is infected with a virus. You
can't usually repair it, you'lll just have to format it, and I'm
getting to that.
Now, Before you format the pen drive, you might want to preserve some files in the drive?
Instead of trying to view the pen drive by double clicking or right
click=>open TYPE the ASSOCIATED DRIVE LETTER at the RUN DIALOG BOX
If your pen drive is assigned to drive E:
Type "E:" (without quotes) and hit enter.
It should open.
Now you will probably see some weired .exe file, probably named
fun.exe. That's the virus. You just cant delete it. BUT you can copy
the rest of the imprtant files to your hard drive.
type "cmd" (without qoutes) and hit enter
type "format/x E:" (without qoutes and mind your spellings and spacing.
REPLACE "E:" with the associated drive letter of the pen drive)
Hope my info fixes your problem, Thanx for using fixya.
if you are using operating system like windows xp or windows vista, you don't need any drivers ,just plug in your 1gb data traveler into usb port and windows will install drivers for it automatically..After that just go to my computer to see your data traveler drive to have access to it.... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- low feed backs hurt my ratings and I am tring to help you with your problem,so let me know that the information i given you is helpfull or not
USB (Universal Serial Bus) flash drives are high-speed, high-capacity memory devices designed for long-term data storage and easy transport among PCs. The host PC treats the device just like a drive, so you can transfer files of all types to and from the device. Because the device emulates a drive, it supports any type of file, including audio files (such as MP3s) and graphics files (such as JPEGs [Joint Photographic Experts Group] and BMPs [bit map]). In addition, USB flash drives can easily support applications, CAD (computer-aided design) drawings, and a wealth of personal information you'd rather not leave on any particular PC. Even so, most USB flash drives are smaller than a pack of gum and can easily fit onto a key ring.
Years ago, users often referred to the practice of using floppies to transport files among PCs as sneakernet. Because USB flash drive manufacturers designed these devices for transport among PCs, their increasing popularity has given rise to a "new sneakernet."
