Get a bright light and look into the USB connector of the Cruzer. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookei crumbs, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connections of the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,you are getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent, etc.

Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap or Proxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT use anything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shorten their life (they are GOLD plated)

Short of that, goto HP site and get their USB format tool (get it here: http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 ) and try reformatting... if that doesn't work, it is hosed and only I can fix it so let me know ;-)

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

First, your Windows XP must be either SP2 or SP3, and then you must add a patch to it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955704/en-us that is KB955794 for the patch

Just because you get a BSOD message does not mean you have a virus. Granted if you have a virus this can cause problems with your system files which cause a BSOD.

The easiest way to clean your system would be to go to this link and run a scan on your computer.

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

However this still may not fix the BSOD issue. If you keep getting it please reply with the error message that is in the BSOD. The link below will show you what is needed if you are not sure. With the error message and stop code i can tell you where the problem is.

DELL Optiplex GX110 freezing


Check the settings of the internal setups. This is using the BIOS itself and hitting a particular key before anything happens. On some machines it is F1 or the DEL key. In the basic setup there are settings for the boot order and floppy drives and HD type. Make sure these are set correctely.

ALSO on one of mine I have to use a formatting/partitioning program supplied by the HD manufacturer (in this case Maxtor) to pre-prepare the drive beofre trying to install WIndows.

Wd 320 gb passport works on my HP but not on my Dell inspiron ? on the hp I have no porblem - on the dell it constantly clicks and does not recognise the presence of the drive ? Thanks


You need to isolate the problem. Bypass the two computers and connect the WD hard drive into another computer (not your HP or you Dell).

Once the other computer detected the HD, then there's something wrong with the USB ports of the Dell computers. But if other computers does not detect the HD, you might need to back up the files and reformat the HD.

If you find out that you are only having a problem with the Dell computer, try enabling the USB Legacy Support of the Dell computer or try updating the USB driver.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

I have an old Dell desktop with a burned up Maxtor hard drive Model # 31024H1. Since I need to replace it, I want to know what would be a good choice of an updated HD?


I was just reading an article in a computer magizine compairing 7200  RPM hard drives and their is very little difference between. THe change comes if you want a fast hard drive for gaming with you would not want anyway.   If it is an old Dell it has most likely an ide drive. Make sure to buy the same. Windows Xp only supports 320 Gbytes I beleive. Anything above that is subdivided if used as the  system drive.   Newegg.com  is reasonable and has a good slection of hard drives. Some Walmart have hard drives.

Ok, take the jumpers off of the drive or make it a master. That should get it to work
